UPS software

SoftScale offers a software-based approach to UPS scalability. The product allows users to purchase the UPS capacity they need today while providing the ability to unlock additional capacity in the future through a software download. Systems will scale from 40kVA to 80kVA or from 80kVA to 120kVA, in 20kVA increments. SoftScale is enabled by advances in UPS design, which optimize the UPS efficiency curve. This allows the UPS to operate with the same high efficiency at 50% as it does at 100%, eliminating penalties of operating a UPS at a reduced load.
