UPS manufacturer, CENTIEL has announced that its 4th generation, true modular UPS CumulusPower known for its “9 nines” (99.9999999%) system availability, plus its stand-alone UPS PremiumTower are now enabled with Bluetooth to allow usage information to be downloaded including status, alarm and event logs. The new Bluetooth device connects customers, data centre managers and engineers with their CENTIEL UPS system using a service app to enable them to monitor its performance more closely.
Gerado Lecuona, Co-founder and global sales director, CENTIEL said: “Designed for use on smartphones and tablets, CENTIEL’s app now allows technicians to connect to customers’ uninterruptible power supplies via Bluetooth, to download historical data. Data is then pushed from the UPS to the smart device through an intuitive interface. This information is automatically organised into a file that can be either archived or shared through emails. For safety reasons, commands cannot be given to the UPS (it only reads). The app also works at a module level for CumulusPower.”
Lecuona continues “We are committed to delivering greater efficiencies for our clients. Close, ease of monitoring of the UPS can ensure it is working optimally and availability is maximised and the new app offers a quick way to access important information about the UPS’ performance. CENTIEL’s app is ideal for service providers who want to become less dependent on a wi-fi connection for data sharing and to alleviate the need to connect to the pc-based software tool.”
The app is currently available for Android phones with an update expected over the next few months for iOS users. The app is easy to use and customers simply need to download and connect to the required system/module.
CumulusPower has now been installed in data centres and comms rooms in over 60 countries across five continents. More than 50 MW of critical power loads are now protected with CumulusPower in locations across the world including: the UK, Singapore, Australia, Germany, Spain, the Czech Republic and the Channel Islands.
