The difference between rack UPS and tower UPS

Rack UPS: It is a power supply equipment mainly used for centralized power supply in security system integration. It is an inevitable product for standardized management and centralized management of security systems. Can output sine wave, zero conversion time.

Tower UPS: It should be the most well-understood type of server structure, because its shape and structure are similar to those of vertical PCs. Of course, due to the server's motherboard scalability and the number of slots. Therefore, the size of the mainframe is larger than that of the ordinary motherboard. Therefore, the mainframe chassis of the tower UPS is larger than the standard ATX chassis. Generally, sufficient internal space is reserved for future redundancy expansion of the hard disk and the power supply.

1.What is the difference between a rack UPS and a tower UPS?

In fact, there is no difference in performance between rack UPS and tower UPS. The biggest difference is the installation method.

2.The difference between rack UPS installation and tower UPS installation

The rack UPS is installed on a standard rack and is structured like a server. The tower UPS is placed separately, installed on the floor, and has space requirements. Whether you choose rack or tower depends on the environment and space of your UPS. The rack UPS can be fixed in a standard network cabinet through rails. The tower UPS is generally placed on the ground and cannot be placed on the rack.

Compared to traditional vertical (tower) UPS, the rack UPS can be installed in a standard cabinet, saving floor space and space, easy to install, use and maintain, and can use a shorter power connection cable. Increase the availability of the entire system by reducing the point of failure between critical equipment and the load.

3.Advantages of rack UPS power supply compared with tower UPS power supply

  1. The installation is simple, the expansion is convenient, and the investment is saved

  2. The rack-mounted UPS power supply enables the power supply system to be on demand, enabling the capacity to grow dynamically with the development of the business, which not only meets the expansion requirements of the later business, but also reduces the initial acquisition cost of the user.

  3. Parallel redundancy, stable operation and high reliability.

4.How to choose tower UPS and rack UPS?

The UPS placement environment is the key to distinguish between tower UPS and rack UPS. If a neat machine room or a high-environment working group is required, the rack UPS power supply is required. Otherwise, the tower UPS has advantages. At the same time, the work stability and work efficiency are also the key power frequency machine selection. The stability and safety of the work frequency is slightly higher than that of the high frequency machine, but the efficiency is slightly lower; the high frequency machine has high efficiency but the stability is slightly lower. In short, companies need to be based on their specific needs.
