Eaton’s 9PX model has been named top UPS product by a US publication.
Control Engineering’s 2013 Engineers’ Choice Awards selected the 9PX from more than 100 nominations across 29 categories of control, instrumentation and automation products introduced in 2012. Industry professionals voted to identify the products they felt were the most exceptional based on technological advancement, service to the industry and market impact.
In a statement, Eaton said the 9PX was recognised for its role as an ideal power protection solution for Information Technology (IT) and facility managers operating medium-to-high-density IT equipment in computer rooms and small data centres in industrial, manufacturing, medical and telecommunications applications.
Eaton claims the 9PX provides 28% more power than ‘traditional’ UPS units and a best-in-class efficiency greater than 93%. The 9PX recently qualified for the US EPA’s Energy Star programme for energy efficient products.
