Lighter, more compact 2U chassis increases available rack space

LIBERTYVILLE, IL, July 10, 2009 - Chloride North America, a subsidiary of Chloride Group PLC, today announced a bold expansion of its market-leading uninterruptible power supply (UPS) lineup with the new Agility™ Series, which introduces five high-density line-interactive UPS systems ranging from 750 VA to 3000 VA in a standardized 2U chassis platform to increase rack space for mission-critical equipment.

Purpose-engineered for servers, large peripherals, storage systems, and other enterprise-wide networking equipment, Agility UPS systems feature two-tier Buck & Boost technology to protect against sags and surges in incoming power without battery wear. In addition, all five Agility models have integrated communication line protection for safeguarding phone or network connections, including modems, faxes and DSL.

Agility UPS systems boast the highest power density available in a 2U chassis (3.5" (H) x 17.3" (W) x 17" (D)), resulting in more usable power without crowding the rack. Chloride's concentration on the 2U platform has enabled it to continually push higher power factors that previously were available only from larger form factor UPS. Incorporation of advanced heat rejection engineering delivers the benefits of cooler operation and lower costs, despite the high power density.

Flexibility is a hallmark of Chloride UPS systems, and the Agility Series is no exception. Scalable batteries allow runtime for existing loads to be increased or to be maintained for expanded loads. Dual-bank load shedding lets users prioritize and allocate back-up capacity for up to three levels. Inputs include RS232, USB, RJ45 Ethernet, an RJ11 REPO (remote emergency power off) port, receptacles compatible with both straight blade and locking plugs, along with a slot for optional cards.

Complimenting the system is Chloride's comprehensive connectivity suite that can be used to simplify alarm, availability, and asset management in dynamic network environments or connect to a building automation system.
