Megapod® Recognized Among 2013 Top Products
Mitsubishi Electric’s UPS System Wins Electrical Products &
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
