VariconPower Archimod HE UPS system

The VariconPower Archimod HE UPS system has a modularly constructed power capacity of 20 to 120 kVA and is intended for small and medium sized server rooms. The system was originally developed by Legrand, Minkels’ mother company. Minkels has continued to develop the UPS into a specific system for data centres and converted it into an integrated total concept which is suited for data centres and server rooms.

 

UPS WITH MODULAR ARCHITECTURE

The VariconPower Archimod HE System is an expandable UPS with a modular structure, with has a capacity ranging from 20 to 120 kVA in a 19-inch rack. The system consists of a set of pre-installed standard components, which simplify and optimise the design and construction of infrastructures. The innovative modular design of these UPS means that the available power can be optimised, the flexibility of the system can be increased and the total cost of ownership (TCO) can be reduced.

 

ADVANTAGES OF THE VARICONPOWER ARCHIMOD HE SYSTEM

  • An efficiency of op to 96% when used in online double conversion
  • Plug-in modules with a self-configuring plug & play system
  • A power factor at the input which is close to 1
  • Multiple I/O for the setting of multiple three phase/ single phase configurations, depending on needs

 

System Architecture

1 CONTROL MODULE

This module has been equipped with a microprocessor and controls 3 power modules. When used together with a power expansion module, 6 power modules can be controlled, which increases the capacity from 20 to 40 kVA. The module contains a screen and a multifunctional keypad for monitoring the UPS’s operational parameters and for configuring several functions. The module can be connected in parallel to other control modules and can be used in combination with power expansion modules. The front panel contains a backlit status indicator, which allows for immediate checking of the system’s operational status and an RS 232 port to which a computer can be connected for carrying out maintenance work.

 

2 POWER MODULES

The power modules (nominal capacity 6,7 kVA) are very compact and easy to handle. They use a plug-in system hot swap system, which makes them quick to install and maintain. The modules work in parallel with all other present modules and thus ensure optimal system performance.

 

3 POWER EXPANSION MODULE

This module must be used in combination with the control module. The module increases the capacity from 20 to 40 kVA and can be used to establish individual redundancy on each phase.

 

4 BATTERY MODULES

Each module contains batteries which can be connected in series, forming separate strings. The compactness and functionality, of the single (plug-in) module make it easy to handle, and expansion operations are possible without any modification of the structure of the installed system.

 

5 DISTRIBUTION MODULE

This module is used to configure the UPS’s distribution type (three phase/three phase, three phase/single phase, single phase/single phase or single phase/ three phase). The module has I/O connection blocks, handling and protection devices, and connection possibilities for additional battery cabinets. The power supply can be configured on two separate input sources (main and backup).

 

6 CABLE ENTRY

Special sleeves enable entry and exit of the input and output cables. They are located at the top and bottom.
