Active Power to Discuss the Changing Landscape of Data Center Power Infrastructure and Launch Next Generation UPS at Datacenter Dynamics Beijing
Company to Introduce Market's Most Modern and Power Dense UPS Platform

Nov 29, 2012 (Marketwire via COMTEX) --Change is a constant for data center operators from increasing power and space requirements due to growing IT capacity to smart grid technology becoming more commonplace. These elements should prompt operators to rethink their power infrastructure particularly as renewable sources of energy are integrated into the utility grid that could create a higher number of power anomalies that exist today.

To bring clarity to these issues, Huan Wang, director, for Active Power China is
scheduled to present at Datacenter Dynamics Beijing where he will discuss how the power grid is transforming and what this means in terms of protecting mission critical IT loads. Wang will also explain why the conventional approach to UPS design needs to be reconsidered.

WHAT: "The Changing Face of Utility Power and the UPS"

WHEN: Tuesday, Dec. 11, 10:55-11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Hall 3, Renaissance Beijing Capital Hotel

Active Power will exhibit at the conference and provide attendees a first look at a demonstration unit of its next generation UPS platform. Rated at 625 kVA, the CleanSource High Density (CSHD) UPS product line is one of the most innovative and ground breaking UPS products on the market in terms of performance and technical capabilities.

CSHD UPS is the most power dense UPS on the market at the 625 kVA range, delivering critical backup power in half the space of a legacy UPS system. With an option for a secondary energy storage technology to achieve extended runtime, paralleling capability for multi-megawatt applications, and at cost parity with conventional systems, CSHD was built to support today's and tomorrow's most forward thinking data center design.

Attendees can learn more about CSHD UPS at Active Power's booth at the conference.
