ABB takes home overall top honor for its MegaFlex UL UPS in this year's Product of the Year competition.

The EC&M editorial team was on hand at the NECA 2023 Show in Philadelphia today to honor this year's Product of the Year Platinum winner. The top award in the 2023 competition goes to ABB for its MegaFlex UL.

This 3-phase, 480V double-conversion uninterruptible power supply is designed for critical high-density computing environments, such as data centers for colocation, hosting, cloud and telecommunication centers. Its monolithic topology uses 400kW power modules with power availability from 1,200kW to 1,600kW in one UPS cabinet configuration. Flexible system architecture ready, the MegaFlex UL supports N+1, 2N, 2N+1, N+N, 3N/2 and catcher system configurations. It also provides easy front and top access, modular sub-assemblies, fast replacement of consumable components and remote monitoring.

This year’s competition featured products introduced to the market between Jan. 1, 2022, and Dec. 31, 2022. A hand-picked panel of judges narrowed down the 110 entries to 34 category winners for the first phase of the competition. These category winners were then narrowed down to our three finalists through an online poll available to EC&M readers, who cast their votes to determine the three award-winning products.
