The Eaton 5130 Rack Tower UPS provides line-interactive backup power and scalable runtimes for servers, storage systems, VoIP gear and network equipment. With a two-in-one rack/tower form factor, the 5130 UPS packs up to three kVA of power into only 2U of rack space. The 5130 UPS provides additional battery runtime with 2U extended battery modules. To enhance compatibility with modern IT loads, the 5130 UPS is designed with a 0.9 power factor.
Compared to earlier generation technologies, the 5130 powers more servers in less space. High power density frees up rack space for more IT equipment, future expansion, or simply to have more room for airflow and heat dissipation.
High 0.9 power factor
Even though it occupies minimal rack space, the 5130 delivers significantly more real output wattage - more real power to your protected load. The difference is a very high 0.9 power factor, a measure of apparent power versus real power. By delivering more real output power, the 5130 powers more servers than another UPS of equivalent VA rating with a lower power factor.
Maximum deployment flexibility
The 5130 can be deployed as a tower unit or in a rack. This UPS also works with a FlexPDU (power distribution unit) from Eaton's Eaton Office Protection Systems series to flexibly distribute power. The PDU enables quick and easy connection of varied load types without help from an electrician - great for responding to frequent moves, adds and changes.
More battery runtime for important systems
If the power goes out, you want to reserve available battery runtime for the most essential loads. With the 5130's load segmentation feature, you can independently control output receptacles. You can shut down power to less essential loads to extend available runtime for more critical devices. The load segmentation feature can also be used to remotely re-boot locked-up network equipment or manage scheduled shutdowns and sequential startups of connected equipment.
Service without downtime
With hot-swappable batteries, one person working alone can replace a battery module without disrupting data center operations or power to protected equipment. With a multi-mount hot-swap maintenance bypass module from Eaton'S Eaton Office Protection Systems series, you can even remove and replace the entire UPS without powering down connected loads.
Local UPS status at a glance
LEDs on the front panel of the 5130 give you a quick read of UPS status. Audible indicators alert you to abnormal conditions. Are internal batteries weak or low? Is there a site wiring fault? How much load is the UPS supporting, relative to its capacity? Is it at risk of overload? You get up-to-the-minute answers to these and more critical questions.
Choice of communication options
You would expect UPSs in this class to have one slot for a serial communications card, but the 5130 has two built-in serial ports (one USB and one RS-232) plus an extra slot for another communication card to support web or SNMP.
With new card options, the UPS can communicate directly with network/building management systems, environmental monitors, relay contact devices, multiple servers and other UPSs - in a variety of networking environments.
