ABB launches medium voltage power protection technology in UK and US

March 17, 2017

PCS120 MV UPS for mission critical facilities like Data Centers

ABB’s designed and manufactured technology from it’s Napier-based power conditioning business is being introduced to the market this week in London at Data Centre World, and in Houston, Texas for ABB’s largest customer event, ABB Customer World in the United States. 


PCS120 MV UPS for mission critical facilities

ABB’s PCS120 MV UPS is a next-generation medium voltage UPS for multi-megawatt power protection that is based on the flexible ZISC architecture. The transition from low voltage to medium voltage is a natural progression of power protection for large sized critical power facilities. By adopting power protection at medium voltage, facility operators benefit from greater energy efficiency as the lower currents at medium voltage lead to smaller cables and lower losses. 

Impedance (Z) Isolated Static Converter (ZISC), a revolutionary power conditioning and uninterruptible power supply architecture that supplies continuous clean power and provides protection from a broad spectrum of utility voltage events. 
It is based on an isolating line reactor coupled with high performance ABB power converters and advanced control. It provides unmatched reliability, high performance and class-leading efficiency.

Perry Field, ABB’s Global Product Line Manager for Power Conditioning, says  ‘With the world's ever-increasing demand for high quality power, driven by increases in industrial automation and large data centres, we are launching a solution well aligned to our customers needs. We look forward to taking this technology developed in New Zealand to the world.”

ABB’s PCS100 MV UPS was a finalist in the at the Deloitte Energy Awards in 2016 in the Energy Technology of the Year category.
