Dell UPS systems are configured and sized in watts, enabling you to select a UPS that’s compatible with the actual power draw of your environment.
Get up and running quickly with Dell ReadyRails tool-less mounting kits, which install in your rack without tools in less than 10 seconds.
Enjoy high levels of energy efficiency with a UPS designed to use less power, dissipate less heat and help reduce cooling costs.
Designed to protect your data in the event of power loss, a Dell UPS can integrate easily with your existing Dell network and server infrastructures.
Monitor your power consumption, power events, available battery runtime, alarm conditions and more with free software and a range of control options.
External Battery Module
Dell uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) provide battery backup power to ride through brief outages or to allow enough time for graceful shutdown of connected servers. This backup runtime can be extended with the use of optional External Battery Modules (EBMs). For example, an EBM extends battery runtime from 5 minutes to 11 minutes for a 4200W UPS, to 14 minutes for a 3750W UPS, and to 19 minutes for a 1920W, 2700W or 5600W UPS, assuming a 100 percent loaded UPS.*
Network Management Card
The Dell Network Management Card (NMC) hot plugs into the Dell UPS, connecting it to the IT network. For users with an SNMP-based infrastructure management system, the NMC also provides SNMP traps of power alarms and events.
UPS user settings can be made either through the NMC web interface (accessed through a web browser with the NMC IP address) or through the Dell UPS management software. Changes made in either location will be synchronized with the other to avoid conflicts.
The network management card provides additional functionality over USB:
Dell’s power management software incorporates the traditional graceful server shutdown operations with enhanced support for large and distributed IT network infrastructures, as well as deeply integrated support for virtualized and private cloud systems.
Dell Multi-UPS Management Console (MUMC) software is designed to manage multiple UPS with attached server installations from a centralized client location. MUMC also directly manages virtualized systems, often without the need for an agent to be installed on the local hypervisor. This software can reduce the complexity and time required to manage system shutdown profiles and UPS settings across a network. Where virtualization is used, the MUMC can eliminate the need for command line programming and complex hypervisor integration with a simple and unique interaction with hypervisor management systems.
A complete set of capabilities is provided with MUMC. These include:
