Vertiv introduces TAA-compliant lithium-ion UPS for edge data centers
The Vertiv Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion TAA uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system
Vertiv has launched a new uninterruptible power supply system compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), the Vertiv Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion.
It is available in 1500VA, 1920VA, and 3000VA capacities from qualified Vertiv channel partners in the U.S. TAA-compliant equipment must be made or transformed in the U.S. or a TAA-designated country to be eligible for U.S. federal government facilities installation as part of the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract.
TAA-compliant equipment must be produced or transformed in the U.S. or a TAA-designated country to be suitable for installation in federal government facilities under GSA MAS contracts where TAA compliance is necessary.
The company says the Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion TAA is a line-interactive UPS system designed for edge and distributed IT environments. It provides up to 20 minutes of battery runtime at half load and nine minutes at full load. It also comes with a five-year limited warranty with advanced replacement terms. Compared to VRLA batteries, Lithium-ion batteries have greater power density, recharge faster, last longer, and can endure more discharge cycles – resulting in a TCO of up to 50% less than VRLA alternatives.
“Lithium-ion batteries have become an important option in data centers of all types and sizes, particularly in the small spaces typical of the edge and U.S. government facilities,” says Tony Evans, the vice president of federal strategy and sales for Vertiv.
The Vertiv Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion TAA is also Energy Star certified. It provides remote management capabilities and free power management software.
Vertiv says it offers a wide range of TAA-compliant IT infrastructure solutions, including UPS systems, racks and integrated solutions, rack power distribution, IT management solutions and thermal management. The Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion TAA UPS system is the latest addition to this portfolio.
“The Liebert PSI5 Lithium-Ion TAA provides reliable, sophisticated, long-lasting backup power across their distributed networks, providing an advanced technology that had been lacking for federal agencies and their IT infrastructure,” adds Evans.
