Hitec Rotary UPS compared to static UPS
Robust, compact, proven technology
- Life expectancy of a Hitec rotary UPS is 25 years.
- Except for regular maintainance no re investment costs
- The amount of floorspace of a Hitec rotary UPS system is half the floorspace required for a static UPS
The energy storage of a Hitec UPS will not reduce over time
- The energy storage capacity of batteries reduces when they get older. Therefore batteries have to be renewed every 3-6 years, generating costs for the UPS owner. The old batteries are environmental unfriendly waste.
- The output voltage of a rotary UPS is clean. A static UPS produces distortion on its output voltage
- Hitec Rotary UPS can easily feed capacitive loads while static UPS systems have restricted possibilities to feed capacitive loads.
Hitec UPS offers the highest level of downtime protection
- Unlimited autonomy time at full load.
- Hitec Rotary UPS significantly reduces the risk of damage due to short-circuit because Rotary UPS is able to supply high short-circuit current to activate the load’s protection fuses. Static UPS has limited short circuit capacity.
- The flywheel of a rotary UPS is recharged in 10 minutes. Recharging the batteries of a static UPS requires many hours. During the recharging a static UPS provides only a restricted protection of the load.
- A Rotary UPS can recharge its flywheel (with the diesel engine) when the mains voltage is absent. A static UPS can only recharge after the mains voltage has returned
Hitec Rotary UPS is less critical technology
- The temperature of the room does not influence Hitec rotary UPS.
- Battery rooms have to be conditioned, which costs extra money.
Simplicity increases MTBF of Hitec rotary UPS
- A Hitec rotary UPS is built with a limited number of parts. Technology that has been improved and used successfully over 30 years. A Static UPS has complicated, vulnerable, power electronics which reduces reliability.
