Replacement program to extend the service life of capacitors for Liebert® Series 600T/610 UPS units
Columbus, Ohio – (March 14, 2017) – Vertiv™, formerly Emerson Network Power, today announces a joint effort with SBE Inc., a leading developer of film capacitor solutions. Vertiv’s adoption of SBE’s Power Ring Film Capacitor™ technology will give customers with a Liebert® Series 600T/610 uninterruptible power supply (UPS) unit a replacement option that significantly extends service life when compared to traditional capacitor technology.
“We have worked with SBE for more than 18 months to ensure their patented technology is right for critical data center applications,” said Dave Saliaris, vice president of global lifecycle management, Vertiv. “The result will be an upgrade program using the latest capacitor technology to enhance performance and reliability of input and output filters in select UPS systems.
Only available through Vertiv, this capacitor upgrade service is for Liebert Series 600T/610 UPS units with 625 kVA, 750 kVA, and 1 MVA capacities. It is ideally suited for those units that are 10 years old or newer. These premiere capacitors run longer and at lower operating temperatures, extending service life for a lower total cost of ownership.
“Like Vertiv, SBE is an innovator. Both our companies develop solutions for next generation systems, which is why this collaboration made perfect sense,” said Ed Sawyer, president and CEO, SBE. “Working with Vertiv allows us to take our technology into the data center industry while Vertiv is helping customers get the most out of their data center infrastructure investments.”
Vertiv expects to launch its capacitor upgrade program in the Americas later this year. Vertiv and SBE will continue to work together in educating customers on how this new capacitor technology is beneficial for critical data center applications.
Vertiv designs, builds and services critical infrastructure that enables vital applications for data centers, communication networks, and commercial and industrial facilities. Formerly Emerson Network Power, Vertiv supports today’s growing mobile and cloud computing markets with a portfolio of power, thermal and infrastructure management solutions including the ASCO®, Chloride®, Liebert®, NetSure™ and Trellis™ brands. Sales in fiscal 2016 were $4.4 billion. For more information, visit VertivCo.com.
SBE traces its history to Sprague Electric Co., a pioneer of capacitors that was founded in 1936. SBE became an independent company in 1986, focusing on advanced capacitor designs. More recently, SBE is building a patent portfolio of unique designs that solve important, critical problems for the electrical and electronics industry. Headquartered in Vermont, SBE has additional facilities in Colorado and China. For more information, visit SBElectronics.com.
