Powervar 3400 Series Uninterruptible Power Supply

WAUKEGAN, IL, November 7, 2018 – AMETEK Powervar, a leading supplier of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and power conditioning solutions, has introduced its 3400 Series UPS. The 3400 Series features advanced IGBT technology, superior performance characteristics, and a transformer-less design.

The 3400 Series’ space-savings footprint measures only 27.5” W x 32” D x 71” H, requiring minimal floor space. It is available in 80kVA/80kW, 100kVA/100kW and 125kVA/125kW to support data centers, medical imaging, clinical diagnostic instruments, municipalities, and other power-critical applications.

Utilizing three-level IGBT technology, the 3400 Series achieves a 96.3% efficiency rating (AC to AC), which leads to overall operational savings. Another key performance characteristic of the 3400 Series is its ability to withstand and hold a 300% inrush (current) and stay online for 240 milliseconds. By doing so, it is possible to downsize the kVA of the UPS unit in specific applications.

“In my nearly 30 years of UPS marketplace experience, I have never seen a UPS system with such superior performance characteristics. It will revolutionize the UPS industry with its performance,” explains Mike Chmura, Three-Phase UPS Sales and Product Manager for AMETEK Powervar. “In many cases, users can now downsize their UPS systems and realize considerable cost savings.”

“The 3400 Series underwent the same rigorous testing as our 3200 Series, and in doing so, will have the same high reliability when installed in the field,” he adds.

"The 3400 Series will be our most powerful and versatile UPS solution to date," explains Chris Walsh, Director of Global Sales and Marketing at AMETEK Powervar.
"With its unique combination of superior efficiency and inrush capability, the 3400 Series is an ideal solution, not only for medical instruments or data rooms, but for any application that requires mission-critical support.”

The 3400 Series UPS is available throughout North, Central and South America and offered with a full two-year warranty that includes the UPS, battery cabinets and MBS systems.
