July 15, 2011

Dayton, OH – The UniStar® family of single-phase online Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) from Staco Energy Products Company now features an industry-leading 3-year warranty.  Available in tower or rack designs, these true on-line, double conversion UPS models protect 1 to 10 kVA loads from outages and irregularities over a wide input voltage range. 

The Staco UniStar® family – which comprises several brands for specific kVA usage points -  is ideal for use in computer rooms, network closets and small data centers as well as to protect servers and telecommunications equipment, medical equipment, and other applications that require computer grade power on a continual basis.

“We’re excited to announce this additional warranty which will clearly help customers drive down their cost of operations” said Staco VP of Sales & Marketing Dave Kendall.  “The UniStar® family, when coupled with our FirstLine® P and FirstLine® PL product for three-phase applications allows us to serve all of the power protection needs of small to medium data centers along with other industrial and commercial applications to 250 kVA.”

UniStar® P models, which are easily parallelable, protect against outages and irregularities in incoming line voltages from 160 to 280 VA at 45 – 65 Hz.    Up to four UniStar® P modules can be installed in parallel for redundancy or additional capacity, and feature near unity input power factor and AC to AC efficiency greater than 90% that meets industry standards for energy savings and, less than 5% reflected harmonics.

“Online UPS protection has never been available at such a favorable price point nor backed by such an aggressive warranty,” continues Kendall.  “We are extremely confident in UniStar® and its ability to better protect single-phase users that we’re backing it with the industry’s strongest and longest warranty.”

A constant clean, steady sine wave protects downstream equipment even without going to battery mode.   Each UniStar P features high overload handling without transfer to the bypass, and protection against short circuit and over-temperature conditions. 

The unique Smart Battery Management System continuously monitors battery status and recharges whenever necessary.  Hot swappable battery packs allow users to change batteries without shutting down the UPS, further simplifying maintenance.  Matching battery cabinets enhance the aesthetics of the UPS while providing easy access and maintenance.   

Available with capacities from 1 to 10 kVA, UniStar® is easy to install, and monitor.  Easy to read front-panel LCD display includes input and output voltage, input and output frequency, load percentage, battery voltage and inner temperature.  Alarms are provided for line mode, backup mode, ECO mode, bypass supply, battery low, battery bad/disconnect, overload, transferring with interruption & UPS fault, line failure, battery low, transfer to bypass, and system fault conditions.  Each size offers remote monitoring and diagnostic capabilities through an RS232 serial port and optional web, USB, SNMP or Dry Contact Cards.  Standard software is compatible with operating systems such as Windows 98, 2000, ME, NT and XP.
