CENTIEL Grows Global Installed Base of Leading
UPS: CumulusPower
eading UPS manufacturer,
CENTIEL SA, has confirmed it
has a growing global installed
base of its three-phase, modular UPS
system, CumulusPowerTM.
Launched for the first time in the UK just
over a year ago, CumulusPowerTM
known for its “9 nines” system availability
and low total cost of ownership, has now
been installed in datacenters and
comms rooms in over 60 countries
across 5 continents.
More than 50 MW of critical power loads
CumulusPower in locations across the
world including: the UK, Singapore,
Australia, Germany, Spain and the
Czech Republic.
Mike Elms, sales and marketing director,
CENTIEL Ltd explains: “Although a
relatively new company, CENTIEL is a
Swiss-based UPS manufacturer whose
team of designers have experience that
covers the last four decades. They were
responsible for the design of the world’s
first three phase transformerless UPS
and the world’s first three phase modular
“As a result, the introduction of our 4th
generation UPS CumulusPowerTM to the
market place has been met with
unprecedented enthusiasm on an
industry wide basis,” continues Elms.
“The main benefit clients are seeing is
the system’s class-leading availability of
99.9999999%. CumulusPowerTM has
been developed with a unique Intelligent
Module Technology (IMT), with a faulttolerant parallel Distributed Active
Redundant Architecture (DARA).
The excellence in system availability is
achieved through fully independent and
self-isolating intelligent modules - each
with individual power units, intelligence
(CPU and communication logic), static
bypass, control, display and battery.
“In addition, the solution has been
designed to reduce the total cost of
ownership through low losses: the high
double conversion efficiency of 97% at
the module level means it is currently the
best solution available to protect data
centre infrastructure as its configuration
also reduces downtime risk, avoiding
costly errors as well as increasing
energy efficiency.
“Our most popular frame is the CP100
which incorporates not only the UPS
modules themselves but also the internal
batteries providing 10 minutes run-time.
Space can be saved as the need for
external batteries is negated. For larger
datacenters the 10x60kW modules
enabling a configuration up to 540 kW
N+1 provides the largest single modular
frame size for a UPS on the market.
“As we look to the future, developments
in battery technology with the
introduction of Li-ion will offer further
benefits because they are smaller,
lighter and operate at higher
Not all systems are
Li-ion ready, but they need to be!
CumulusPowerTM is Li-ion ready, so our
clients are finding both their power and
investment in a UPS system are fully
protected for the future with CENTIEL.”
