DPA 500 (ABB)

Conceived for medium-sized and large data centers, ABB’s DPA 500 modular uninterruptible power supply (UPS) fulfills power requirements from 100 kW to 3 MW and provides maximum availability for those who aim for zero downtime as well as a low cost of ownership.

Total vertical and horizontal scalability

The DPA 500 delivers power protection from 100 to 500 kW (one to five modules) in a single cabinet (vertical scalability). Cabinets can operate in a parallel configuration to build a system of up to 3 MW (horizontal scalabiltiy).

 True parallel architectureThe advanced UPS design of DPA 500 provides the highest degree of protection in critical applications where the load must be fed with quality power. This UPS system utilizes decentralized parallel architecture and ensures the highest level or reliability and availability with true redundancy across the modules.
