Overview

Tripp Lite SU16KRT-1TF 16,000VA / 16kVA / 14,400 watt online, double-conversion UPS system offers complete power protection for critical server, network and telecommunications equipment in a 14U rack/tower configuration. This system delivers complete N+1 redundancy when used at loads up to 8kVA, and non-redundant operation at loads between 8 and 16kVA. Fault-tolerant auto-bypass prevents unexpected service interruptions during UPS overload or internal fault conditions. Included parallel PDU with manual bypass switching enables hot-swappable replacement of all major UPS system components in both N+1 and combined operating modes. Enhanced availability, fault tolerance and simple hot-swap replacement options make this UPS ideal for advanced networking applications in data centers, computer rooms, network closets and rugged industrial locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tripp Lite offers Hot-Swap PDUs, which make any UPS hot-swappable, as well as Hot-Swappable Modular UPS Systems, which integrate a detachable Hot-Swap PDU. The key component of the hot-swappable design is a modular power distribution unit (PDU) that combines all input and output power connections with a manual bypass switch. The dual input and manual bypass features of the PDU enable UPS system maintenance–from battery replacement to complete power module exchange–without powering down connected mission-critical equipment and hiring costly service specialists. For a full explanation of “hot-swap” or “hot-swappable” UPS systems or PDUs, click here
In Economy Mode, the UPS increases efficiency by implementing dynamic double conversion, which means it suspends or resumes double conversion automatically as the quality of input power changes. For a full explanation of Economy Mode, click here
