The IBM UPS5000 HV is a 5 KVA rack-mountable uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that utilizes advanced backup power technology to ensure maximum protection of equipment and data and increase availability. High power efficiency is delivered through the capability of automatically switching the UPS to the efficiency mode appropriate for required power protection. Support for different line cords lets multinational customers implement this single model UPS5000 HV in multiple geographies.

The IBM UPS5000 HV uninterruptible power supply is shown in Figure 1.

Did You Know?

The UPS5000 HV packs 4500W of power into a space-efficient 3U form. This provides maximum power density, thereby leaving more space for other computer hardware in rack and BladeCenter server environments.

Double Conversion UPS technology provides maximum protection from potential power input problems. This leads to higher availability and fewer problems that threaten data and equipment.

Features

The IBM UPS5000 HV uninterruptible power supply includes the following features and capabilities:
  • High efficiency 5KVA (4.5 kW) UPS for increased rack power density.
  • Occupies only 3U of vertical rack space.
  • Eight C13 and two C19 receptacles with 20A circuit breaker protection.
  • Requires a 200 V to 240 V, 30-32 A single-phase circuit.
  • Advanced technology Double Conversion operation providing protection from four more power failures than typical interactive UPS technology.
  • Bimodal operation provides 97% efficiency when Double Conversion protection not required.
  • Hot swap battery capability increases availability.
  • Optional Online Battery Packs for additional runtime capacity. With four external battery packs, the UPS can supply up to 75 minutes of run time at full load. Up to 10 external battery packs can be attached to the UPS.
  • A suite of easy-to-use management tools.
  • Network Management Card provides standard serial and Ethernet (10/100 MBps) communications as well as connections for environmental management. A temperature sensor on a 13 foot cable is supplied with the UPS. Additional sensors can be purchased from APC using part number AP9335T.
  • Emergency Power Off option to remotely power off UPS unit to prevent battery operation during power failure.
  • Load: Up to 5000VA or up to 4500W.
