Critical Power Module (CPM) systems provide constant protection against surges, sags, and power interruptions that can disrupt operations or cause loss of valuable data or system capacity.
The introduction of the new CPM means Finning can now offer one of the industry’s lowest cost operating systems using both battery and flywheel UPS technology.
Available as standard with double-conversion 160kVA UPS systems, units can be tailored from 60kVA up to 500kVA using other ratings from the Cat diesel generator set and double-conversion battery UPS ranges.
The double-conversion system is integrated seamlessly with a Cat GEH275 generator set in a container measuring just 20ft, reducing the installation footprint and increasing reliability in a continuous power configuration.
In addition, the sound-attenuated container allows noise levels of just 75dB(A) at one metre to be achieved.
The UPS compartment is complete with a Caterpillar UPSB505 on-line double-conversion UPS, with a 10-year design life VRLA battery. Switchgear located within the compartment includes automatic transfer switch and external maintenance bypass switch, meaning maintenance, inspection and testing can be performed while maintaining continuous power to the load.
Says Mike Smith, UPS sales manager for Finning, “Power demand and security of supply is paramount to ensure system integrity in many mission critical applications. However, at Finning, we want to make sure that our product offer can also help customers to lower lifetime cost of ownership, so products like the new Critical Power Module have been designed to incorporate numerous innovations, such as the ten-year battery life, reduced maintenance and high energy performance.”
As well as UPS solutions, the company also offers a range of standby power generation packages.
