Power Control won the work based on its ability to deliver a custom built Borri UPS solutions and its commitment to delivering the installation within a tight timeframe and within stringent budgets. Having worked in partnership with Borri Italy for almost a decade on developing bespoke power protection solutions, Power Control was confident that it would be able to provide a customised UPS systems that could be IP54 rated and significantly reduced in size. Borri Italy has an impressive research and development team and we have worked in close collaboration with them on a number of high profile custom installs. Power Control has direct access to the factory and witness testing facility at Borri Italy and can therefore easily deliver a service that is wholly indicative of our manufacturing partner. It is our close working relationship that enables us to provide our clients with tailored solutions, designed to meet their exacting requirements.."

About the product

Customised Borri

These customised Borri three phase UPS systems were customised to be IP54 rated and compliant to WIMES 3.07, meaning they are protected from water splashes and harmful deposits of dust.

The units were also modified to fit in an extremely restricted space and so were made to a custom size of 800W x 800D x 2000H and are all front access for easy access and maintenance.

The air outlet fans on each UPS were designed at the front, allowing the UPS to be pushed right up to a wall, contributing to space saving.

The battery boxes were also customised to comply with the IP54 specification. They were designed with a built in DC isolator and housed in a matching 800W x 800H x 2000H front access box. To ensure the complete power protection system is protected from splashes and dust, the bypass switches have also been places in IP54 enclosures.

The customised Borri three phase UPS also boasts:

  • Three year warranty for peace of mind
  • IGBT rectifier for newer technological advances and faster switching
  • Smart Online functionality >98% for efficiency
  • Internal galvanic isolation transformer to increase efficiency but reduce weight and size
  • THDi <3% with input power factor >0.99 to reduce power distortion and installation costs.
