Dubai–UAE: 22 June, 2011 — APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated
critical power and cooling services, today announced the launch of PowerChute™
Business Edition 9.0, the first Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) software to provide
energy reporting for IT equipment.
PowerChute Business Edition 9.0 moves beyond APC’s safe system shutdown and UPS
management to help customers understand their power consumption with fact-based
energy, cost and CO2 emissions reporting on a per Smart-UPS basis.
The programme has the unique ability to calculate the cost of a Smart-UPS’ power draw
in kWh using the appropriate local currency which provides an accurate depiction of
how the energy use of protected equipment affects the bottom line. Bringing visibility
to the cost and byproducts of their power consumption, PowerChute Business Edition
9.0 enables customers to maximize the use of all of their Smart-UPS products and truly
use their energy better.
Dave Johnson, Senior Vice-President, Home and Business Networks, APC by Schneider
Electric, said: “For the first time, our customers can see the energy being consumed,
the cost of this energy and the CO2 being produced by equipment protected by our
Smart-UPS. Customers rely on APC to provide safe, dependable protection from
downtime, data loss and hardware damage. PowerChute Business Edition 9.0 goes far
beyond that by taking the guesswork out of energy management.”
PowerChute Business Edition 9.0 ships with all APC Smart-UPS 5kVA and below and is
also available for download at www.apc.com/tools/download/index.cfm. This version
provides UPS monitoring and centralized risk assessment reporting for up to five
Smart-UPS. Customers can also purchase a version to monitor up to 25 Smart-UPS
from the APC web site or via usual distribution channels.
