Overview

Tripp Lite's SU40K (40kVA) SmartOnline Modular 3-Phase Intelligent, True On-Line UPS System provides 100% system availability with N+1 modular architecture and 1+1 parallel capability. In an N+1 configuration, the SU40K provides two self-contained, redundant 20kVA power modules that can be hot-swapped (with the load powered) if maintenance is required. Connect two SU40K models in parallel (1+1 configuration) to provide fail-safe redundancy (two 40kVA models supporting a 40kVA load) or to increase capacity (two 40kVA models supporting an 80kVA load). The SU40K provides mission-critical equipment with the highest level of power protection available. Large capacity 40,000VA/32,000W UPS continually converts incoming AC power into filtered DC power, and then resynthesizes it back into AC power with a pure sine wave. Perfectly regulated, continuous sine wave output with zero transfer time assures compatibility with all equipment types. The SU40K's high input power factor, advanced IGBT inverter technology and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) technology produce less than 3% input Total Harmonic Distortion (THDi). With low THDi, generators run cooler and last longer, allowing managers to save installation costs by installing a generator with a capacity equal to the equipment load (1:1 ratio). Extremely efficient operation (up to 96%) saves money by lowering electricity consumption. Hardwire input and output connections. The SU40K features 120/208V AC, 3-phase, 4-wire (plus ground), wye input and output. It also features a wide input voltage correction range: 94-150/163-260V AC. Frequency is 50 or 60 Hz (auto-selectable). The SU40K combines internal power and battery components in a single small-footprint tower module. Typical half-load/full-load runtimes are 13 min./5.5 min. Battery runtime can be extended with optional stand-alone hardwired external battery modules BP480V26B and BP480V40C with matching battery cabinets, available separately. Additional battery cabinets for extended runtime solutions also available; contact Tripp Lite for more information. A manual bypass breaker and an automatic bypass function ensure 100% availability of connected equipment by safely passing through AC power if the UPS requires maintenance. A built-in RS-232 communication port works with PowerAlert Software, available via free download, to provide shutdown commands and reporting on a single server. An accessory slot accepts an optional internal network monitoring card option. Front panel combination LCD/LED display alerts users to a variety of UPS operational modes and conditions. The LCD display includes a real-time event log screen with up to 500 events listed. A dynamic battery management screen optimizes battery function to lengthen service life and allows cold restart of the UPS during a prolonged blackout to utilize its batteries for periodic system access or data retrieval. An Emergency Power Off button turns the UPS output OFF and disables Bypass output. Built-in Emergency Power Off (EPO) dry-contact interface supports remote emergency shutdown in large facilities. A start-up service program is recommended to enhance the reliability of the installation.
