GE has introduced a series of flywheel uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems. The family ranges from 50 to 1,000 kilovolt amperes and integrate with flywheel technology from Calnetix Technologies’ subsidiary VYCON as well as GE’s TLE and SG series.
The press release says that the flywheel UPS systems offers reduced total cost of ownership, simple and reduced maintenance and reduced carbon footprint. System flexibility is emphasized with the ability to install as many as six flywheels in parallel. The platform’s real-time monitoring capabilities rest on iUPSGuard. It provides personnel notification of critical alarms via email or text messaging. This speeds time to repair, the press release says.
Active Power last month introduced the CleanSource 275XT UPS uninterruptible power supply.
