 Sustainability And Environment

Full Galvanic Isolation

Chloride 80-NET is the only UPS in its power range that offers integrated full galvanic isolation, meaning that the isolation transformer is housed inside the UPS cabinet. This greatly reduces the footprint thus
providing space saving advantages. In addition, the transformer can be connected to the input or to the output of the UPS, providing:
  • Full galvanic isolation for medical and other critical applications
  • Installation with two independent input sources (with different neutrals)
  • Installation in distribution without neutral.

Respecting The Environment

Chloride 80-NET respects the highest level of environmental standards as a result of the following features:
  • Premium energy savings
  • Most silent UPS in its power range
  • Maximized battery life with
  • Advanced Battery Care (ABC).
ABC allows the Chloride 80-NET series to maximize the running time
of the battery by up to 50% and includes the following main battery
care features:
  • Ambient temperature compensated battery charger
  • Automatic battery test (can be set by user at selectable intervals)
  • Time compensated end of discharge voltage
  • Exact determination of remaining battery life thanks to sophisticated algorithms able to analyze real operating conditions such as temperature, discharge/charging cycles and discharge depth.

Flexibility And Security

Parallel Configurations

Chloride 80-NET can be connected with up to eight units in parallel for an increased level of capacity as well as redundancy, thus enhancing its fault management capability by preventing a single point of failure. The parallel architecture of Chloride 80-NET allows single units to be serviced while the remaining units continue to power the load. A single Chloride 80-NET unit can be upgraded to parallel simply, via dedicated and easy to modify software settings. Chloride 80-NET’s self configuring, hot plug parallel feature allows the system to automatically detect when new units have been added without the need for stopping the system. This simplified parallel process provides maximum flexibility in terms of scalability for capacity and redundancy.
The Loop CAN BUS connection, used to connect the paralleled UPS also allows for unprecedented reliability, perfect load sharing and fast detection of any variation in status of the UPS system.Chloride 80-NET can support both distributed and centralized parallel configurations:

Distributed Parallel Configuration

Paralleling single Chloride 80-NET units offers advanced scalability. In a distributed parallel configuration each unit has a dedicated static bypass switch, providing parallel operation without the need for a system control cabinet, thus reducing initial installation costs.

Centralized Parallel Configuration

With the Chloride 80-NET’s centralized parallel configuration, the internal static bypass switch of each unit is disabled and an external Main Static Switch (MSS) rated for the desired maximum capacity, is installed. Therefore, the reserve supply to the loads operates via one central piece of equipment (MSS). The MSS can be easily integrated into any switchgear, thus simplifying cabling and installation. System level
commands are given to the MSS via its integrated touch screen display.
centralized parallel configurations

Intelligent Paralleling Feature for Centralized Parallel Configuration

Activating the the Main Static Switch (MSS) intelligent paralleling feature optimizes efficiency at partial load, thus achieving superior running cost savings. Enabling this feature allows the system to
automatically adapt capacity to meet immediate load requirements by switching excess units to standby mode, while ensuring continued system availability. Furthermore, the Main Static Switch allows each Chloride 80-NET unit to operate in standby mode for the same amount of time, ensuring an equal life-span of module components. This Main Static Switch intelligent paralleling feature further maximizes Chloride 80NET’sdouble conversion efficiency at partial load and allows for an overall energy dissipation reduction.

Intelligent ECO Mode for Centralized Parallel Configuration

In a centralized parallel configuration it is possible to activate the intelligent ECO mode feature, thus powering the critical loads through the central Main
Static Switch, allowing it to operate at an efficiency up to 98.5%, further maximizing energy savings for an optimized total cost of ownership (TCO).
