Power management company Eaton recently announced the global launch of the 9PX lithium-ion uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Eaton’s new UPS provides longer battery life and a smaller footprint than valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) battery-powered UPS technology, making it ideal for distributed, “edge” environments and light industrial applications ranging from healthcare to education.

“Digital transformation is reshaping work across industries and more companies now rely on distributed IT infrastructure to bring data closer to end users,” said Sami Hussaini, product manager, UPS 9 series, Eaton. “As this happens, the need for reliable backup power has never been more critical. Our 9PX lithium-ion UPS continues our commitment to building lithium-ion capabilities into UPS solutions, enabling greater business continuity and always-on power in environments with limited on-site IT support.”

Lithium-ion battery technology has emerged as a transformative innovation for UPSs in edge environments, as its longer battery life allows for a “set it and forget it” approach that requires little on-site support from IT staff, data center professionals or maintenance personnel.

Eaton’s 9PX lithium-ion UPS offers seamless integration for virtual-machine-centric management and disaster preparedness in the event of outages. It has a life expectancy of eight to 10 years with increased reliability and a smaller footprint compared to VRLA-powered UPSs. Customers can purchase the UPS with Eaton’s Gigabit Network Card (Network-M2), enabling secure, connected capabilities and compatibility with Eaton’s PredictPulse remote monitoring service for real-time power monitoring and management.
