DPA 240 UL
Decentralized parallel architecture from 40 kW to 1.2 MW at 415V.
Conceived for small to mid-sized data centers, ABB’s modular Conceptpower DPA 240 uninterruptible power supply (UPS) fulfill power requirements from 40 kW to 1.2 MW at 415V and provide maximum availability for those who aim for zero downtime as well as a low cost of ownership.
Total vertical and horizontal scalability
The Conceptpower DPA 240 delivers power protection from 40 to 1.2 MW at 415V, both input and output, (one to six modules) in a single cabinet frame. Horizontal scalability is also given, with up to five frames in parallel, to increase total power up to 1.2 MW respectively. This scalability means that there is no need to over-specify the original configuration as power modules can simply be added, as needed, in the future.
True parallel architecture
This advanced UPS design provides the highest degree of protection in critical applications where the load must be fed with quality power. These Conceptpower DPA systems utilize decentralized parallel architecture and ensures the highest level of reliability and availability with true redundancy across modules.

One of the benefits of modular UPS is that it allows for utilizing the same power protection concept, with the same product, across different load segments and across installation sites. With Conceptpower DPA each power module is its own working UPS. System power can always be scaled to fit the load power without need to oversize, or being able to predict the growing power demand to far future. More modules can be added at any stage to increase system capacity.
Standardized approach for managing power protection streamlines and simplifies the installation and allows also for introduction of unified and standardized service concept on-site.
The benefits of the standardization in today’s constantly changing and unpredictable environment are clear: faster implementation, flexibility and scalability help in controlling the capital spending.
For the UPS designs this means further refining the decentralized paralleling architecture and higher power, thus highly efficient, modular solutions. The same module can be used as building block for large variety of applications across different size load segments.
The above in turn yields to increased reliability, better risk management and an affordable yet efficient aftersales service, hence overall lower total cost of ownership.

Conceptpower DPA 240 in data centers
Today’s data centers require continuous uptime. That target is why ABB’s Conceptpower DPA 240 is based on Decentralized Parallel Architecture (DPA). Only a truly redundant architecture like DPA allows online modules to be swapped out while the system is running. Each high-reliability, standardized module is self-contained and can be swapped at any time, so nothing has to be ever switched off – making routine maintenance safe and easy.
Conceptpower DPA 240 is designed to secure continuity of critical operations for small to mid-sized data centers, server rooms and other IT applications. It also protects industrial automation processes, healthcare facilities and many other vertical markets where operations are of a critical nature
