UPS units receive Energy Star rating

Jan 30, 2013 | UPS & Standby Power

Eaton has recently announced Energy Star certification of its 9PX and 9SX UPS units. Energy Star, a joint program established by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy, is intended to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.

Eaton’s 9PX and 9SX UPSs available in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) earned the Energy Star following stringent third party testing and verification of meeting the program’s energy efficiency requirements. The certification guarantees that Eaton products are among the top 25% of most efficient UPSs on the market and allow customers to effectively reduce electrical usage and carbon footprint.

“Reducing power consumption without sacrificing reliability in server, storage and network environments is a primary challenge for today’s Information Technology (IT) and data centre professionals,” said Christophe Jammes, single-phase product manager for Eaton. “Eaton has a global commitment to developing energy efficient solutions that provide our customers with the highest possible business value, and earning the Energy Star for our server and network class UPSs is a well deserved exemplification of our mission.”
