Data Centres

Our range of UPS, generators and emergency lighting products, as well as proven combination of experience and support has earned our trusted position in a wide range of data centre applications.

At KUP we understand that the key challenges in data centre applications power protection include:

  • Increasing processing and power density
  • Drives to improve sustainability and efficiency
  • Exceptionally high costs associated with risks to reputation, reliability and security
  • Restrictions on location of power equipment eg noise, space and weight.

In answer to these challenges, several of our UPS systems have independently certified energy efficiency that places them top of their categories, whilst compact, modular and fully distributed parallel architecture (DPA) designs dramatically improve availability. Similarly, our experience and flexibility in battery systems allows us to offer solutions and technologies that meet today’s demands.

Offering tightly integrated UPS and generator packages, we are uniquely positioned to provide solutions that can significantly cut the size of the generators required whilst still comfortably meeting ISO 8528-5 and industry standards.
Complementing these are kite-marked, performance-tested static inverters for emergency lighting systems, which complete the portfolio, whilst our own team of engineers are there to support them nationwide, 24/7, 365 days a year.
Having completed over 2.6GW of power protection installations in data centres, Kohler Power Group’s clients range from enterprises running their own in-house systems, through modular and medium-sized colocation datacentres right up to large hyperscale facilities.

    Three phase
    Three phase
    A three-phase installation uses the full three phases which are generated from the grid. A three phase electrical supply comprises of three individual sine waves, and can be installed as either a three wire or three wire & neutral configuration. A three-phase source would typically come from a local transformer, with the standard three phase voltage being 400/415 VAC.
