Turn Gray Space Into WhiteIt's time to rethink your UPS
All boxes are not created equal
Given the requirement to handle more data while building their new data centers, owners are faced with the challenge of accommodating larger loads over a short period of time. Mitsubishi Electric’s 9900CX is designed specifically for the relentless demand of cloud and colocation services facing today’s hyper-scale data centers. Available in capacity ranges of 1.4 to 2.1 MVA, this single UPS takes up less floor space, requires lower cooling requirements, and is a far simpler installation with a single input and output. Fewer connection points means fewer potential points of failure, leading to higher reliability.
The next-generation power semiconductor is here!В In the SUMMIT Series® UPS from Mitsubishi Electric, the Si (silicon) IGBT is replaced with advanced capability SiC (silicon carbide) semiconductors. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) states silicon carbide is to the 21st century what silicon was to the 20th century. Mitsubishi Electric began development of SiC (Silicon Carbide) semiconductors during the early 1990's and now offers this proven technology in the SUMMIT UPS. Higher efficiencies are achieved across all load levels with SiC's lower switching losses, higher switching frequencies, and improved thermal conductivity range.
The 9900C is yet another exceptional addition to Mitsubishi's flagship 9900 series UPS family. Providing over one megawatt of power in a single UPS while boasting up to 97% efficiency, it is the first true on-line double conversion UPS at this power level to deliver the highest efficiency across all load levels. In addition, it is smaller in size and lighter in weight than competing products. As one of the largest manufacturers of IGBT's in the world, Mitsubishi is able to achieve superior UPS performance and reliability through smarter control of the IGBTs. The 9900C incorporates Digital Signal Processor and Direct Digital Control to realize the full benefits of the latest generation of IGBTs, a reduced total cost of ownership, and improved PUE over conventional UPSs.
Like all other Mitsubishi UPSs, the 9900B is a three-phase, on-line double-conversion system and features Mitsubishi’s world-renown Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) technology for enhanced UPS performance and reliability. It enjoys the largest install base, with just under 2000 in North America alone. The 9900B is available in 300, 500, and 750 kVA, and is Energy Star rated.
The compact DiamondPlus 1100 Series is available in a variety of power ratings ranging from 10kVA to 80 kVA, and can be arranged in an N+1 configuration. This unit is modular and expandable, and can be upgraded in 10 kVA increments. All units in the series have fully digital screens and front access allows easy monitoring, while “hot swappable” power and battery modules promote maximum flexibility and rapid mean time to repair (MTTR). With efficiencies over 93%, a high 0.9 output power factor, and a lightweight design, the DiamondPlus® is both a green and smart alternative.

Mitsubishi Electric UPSs provide solutions across a variety of applications.
Cloud computing organizations want faster deployment, strong service support, and a single point of contact for product servicing. The products they purchase need to have a high uptime level of performance to offer customers, and an increasing amount of power to service a growing population of clients. The products they purchase need to have high reliability and efficiency. Mitsubishi Electric maintains a large inventory of many different UPSs in their Warrendale location, eliminating the long leadtime dilemma. (insert warehouse photo)
Colocation organizations have similar foundational wants and needs as cloud computing industries, with the difference being that an individual enterprise often owns its own IT equipment housed by the colo, but utilizes equipment in the gray space owned and maintained by the colo. Fast deployment and superior customer service are important to them as well. The more uptime their offerings provide, the more they can retain customers and become attractive to prospects.
Finance and insurance customers need high reliability to ensure mass volume transactions are processed securely, accurately, and consistently. Downtime for these organizations is costlier than any of the other industry (true?) . They will make budget cycle buying decisions based on their ability to maintain control of their data/computing needs with the opportunity to modernize and upsize their existing infrastructure.
Content customers are looking for efficient products and global partners. Continuity of content services is important to their customers. They tend to make buying decisions that are based on proliferation of digital content development and demand. Similar to finance customers, they look for solutions that will modernize and upsize their existing data center infrastructure.
Manufacturing and industrial organizations also look for minimal internal impact upon total implementation. They also look for UPS products that can reliably operate in harsh environments. It is critical for these customers to have a solution which ensures expensive processes and operations can be conducted without interruption. Cost reduction and improvements in operational effectiveness drive these solution finding and buying decisions.
Healthcare industry customers want something that is simple to use and requires minimal resourcing internally for installation and servicing. Reliability becomes the utmost importance when their processes are often in life saving situations, therefore extremely high reliability becomes not just a customer want, but an organizational need. Additionally, they are required to comply with regulatory requirements such as incoming power quality and seismic specifications. Their wants and needs are based on being able to provide dependable health care and avoid unnecessary healthcare costs. Their buying decisions are based on when it is time to modernize or down-size existing data infrastructure, as well as replacing aged or failed UPS supporting medical equipment.
Retail customers also want minimal internal impacts upon total implementation. They look for solutions that support the need for secure and reliable high volume of transactions to take place. To maintain competitive advantage and keep costs down, their buying decisions are based on the need to migrate retail transactions from brick and mortar locations to online purchases- available anytime day or night.
Government based customers need UPS systems that require minimal intervention requirements on their end while the products are installed, efficiently operated, and serviced. They require high reliability in the services and products they purchase, and always seek solutions that adhere to specifications, process, and procedures. A functioning economy and general public security attract their attention – and they are motivated to constantly provide services to support those needs. They make buying decisions in order to meet internal or legal requirements for updating aging infrastructure after a specified number of years.
Mitsubishi Electric has introduced the 9900CX to the public through several well-attended events in September 2017.
