CommScope, Hydrogenics Provide Indoor Backup Power for Data Centers
CommScope has expanded its partnership with Hydrogenics to provide compact indoor power backup for enterprise data centers. The backup power is being marketed as an alternative to traditional generators or large battery racks and occupies the same space as one server cabinet, according to CommScope.
Earlier this year, CommScope introduced an outdoor hydrogen fuel cell backup power solution.
The scalable indoor fuel cell system can provide up to 30 kW of backup power to enterprise computing systems. Multiple power racks can be installed to scale in 30 kW increments and sustain a variable runtime from hours to days based on customer requirements and hydrogen tank options.
When paired with an appropriate uninterruptable power supply (UPS), the fuel cell rack can be configured for 10, 20 or 30 kW of sustained alternating current power. The fuel cell system is quiet, emits no greenhouse gases and can be deployed indoors with the hydrogen fuel tank sited outside the building.
