Riello UPS launches the Power Centre
Riello UPS has launched its own demonstration and training suite to showcase its extensive range of products.The Power Centre, which opened its doors at the firm’s head office in September, will be used to show existing and potential customers a selection of live UPS systems, demonstration units and monitoring packages.
The centre, in Wrexham, North Wales, includes a low power demonstration rack containing a range of online, dual format UPS systems, battery packs and switchgear designed for smaller networks and IT applications.
Other products featured in the Power Centre include a 100kVA Master HP UPS with a 300kVA VDC-XE flywheel providing 144 seconds of mechanical battery power, and an additional 10 minute battery pack. The flywheel is smart grid ready and provides the Master UPS with standby power if the mains power supply fails.
The centre also features the live 100kVA Elcos standby diesel generator providing standby power to essential loads such as the UPS system and non-essential loads including lighting, security systems and electrical door access. The Elcos Generator is smart grid ready and can be connected to the National Grid for a demand response programme.
The centre also serves a training facility for clients, sales teams and service engineers, providing critical education or refresher courses for each of the technologies available.
General manager of Riello UPS, Robin Koffler said, ‘Following feedback from our customers who wanted to see our products out of the box and in use, we launched the Power Centre. As a manufacturer, it’s important we show our customers the trust we have in our UPS products which is why we have live products in the centre that protect our own IT systems.
‘We want to make UPS work for the organisations in which they are deployed and as simple to manage as possible, ensuring the ultimate protection of that all important data. It’s for this reason that the Power Centre also features the TeleNetCom system, a web based remote monitoring portal providing clients with a site and system specific dashboard, ‘live’ status information and alarm monitoring with dedicated response scripts.’
