Mitsubishi Megapod® Recognized Among 2013 Top Products


Mitsubishi Electric’s UPS System Wins Electrical Products & Solutions Magazine’s

Top Products Award


WARRENDALE, Penn. – January 6, 2014 – Mitsubishi’s Megapod® integrates uninterruptible power supplies, batteries, and critical load cabinets into a single economical back-to-back layout that minimizes total system footprint and installation time.  In 2013, Mitsubishi introduced the use of bus bar to replace the cabling previously used.  The bus bar is located safely in between the two lineups of components and enables swift and effective connections, making external input and output lines the only necessary cabled connections on site.   The Megapod® from Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc., has been named one of the top products of 2013 by Electrical Products & Solutions magazine.

Each year, the magazine’s editors choose the top products in the electrical industry market based on their uniqueness, benefits and reliability. The awards were announced in their December 2013 issue.


“We’re proud that the Megapod® was named a top product by Electrical Products & Solutions magazine,” said Dean Datre, general manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products’ UPS division. “It validates our commitment to give our customers reliable and efficient UPS systems to protect their mission-critical equipment and minimize downtime that may arise due to power instability or failures.”


At the heart of the Megapod® is the 9900B, the industry’s most efficient true on-line double conversion UPS.  Also noteworthy is the Megapod’s use of high-capacity front-terminal batteries, which reduces the quantity of batteries required.  Less batteries means fewer batter cabinets, a smaller footprint, and a reduction in the cost of battery monitoring.  Lastly, the Megapod’s modular architecture allows UPS units to be added or subtracted as multi-module configuration loads change.


This accolade is the latest for Mitsubishi Electric’s award-winning UPS systems. The DiamondPlus™ 1100 was recognized as a Top Product in 2012, and the 9900 Series UPS won the same award in 2010.  In addition, the 9900 won a bronze award in Consulting-Specifying Engineer’s 2011 Product of the Year competition.  Mitsubishi Electric’s broad spectrum of high-efficiency, on-line, double-conversion UPS systems are designed for mission-critical applications that cannot tolerate power interruption or downtime, and are offered in power ratings ranging from 10 kVA to 750kVA.
