Delta Electronics Australia has launched a new range of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) devices that delivers a high-power-density rack/tower solution in a much smaller footprint.

Delta has also announced the appointment of Steve Lovelace to Delta Australia’s mission critical systems team as National Channel Manager.

The Delta Amplon UPS RT 1-20kVA range of UPS is Delta’s most complete power solution for mission critical ICT environments, providing Australian organisations access to significant operations and energy-saving features such as a high output power factor of 0.9 that provides more real power to critical loads; operation temperature tolerance up to 50°C; up to 94 per cent AC-AC efficiency and 97 per cent efficiency in ECO mode; and intelligent battery management to sustain battery life and performance.

This new model has a much smaller footprint than other models, which can save up to 67 per cent of space, and excellent local communications through a rotatable LCD display.

In addition, the Delta Amplon UPS range offers optional Li-ion battery technology allowing hot-swappable battery strings, replaceable from the front of the rack and enabling continuous operation. This feature addresses critical issues such as maintenance costs, space, manageability and total cost of ownership.

New channel manager, Steve Lovelace

Delta Australia recognises that both IT and electric distribution channels play important roles in supporting its strong commitment to customers and to this end has appointed Steve Lovelace to its mission critical systems team as national channel manager.

Mr Lovelace will be placing emphasis on specific routes to market including alliance partners, value-add resellers and distributors, service providers and system integrators.

David Leal, Eltek* regional president–APAC and country manager for Delta Electronics Australia, said, “Today’s successful channel companies are extremely diverse, competitive and agile while continually seeking additional revenue streams and increase diminishing margins.

Our mission, which is to provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow, is being directly addressed through Steve’s appointment and our ongoing investment and support.

“We are definitely moving in the right direction to deliver this to our customers,” Mr Leal said.
