What is a UPS? The
Gaia Power Tower UPS
A UPS or an Uninterruptible Power System is a battery backup device for electronic equipment. A UPS provides protection to servers, workstations, network, banking and security systems and other electronic equipment from electrical disturbances. Positioned between the incoming utility power and the electrical equipment connected to it, the UPS filters
the power to eliminate any spikes or surges that may cause damage to the computer or the data it is processing. A Unisys UPS is essential in preventing unnecessary downtime caused by momentary power outages or blackouts. Unisys UPS solutions are classified according to their power output capacity: Volt Amperes (VA). When specifying a server or other mission-critical equipment, add a Unisys UPS to the

your power signal so that it provides a pure sine wave which is required for sensitive
electrical equipment such as computers, home theater systems as well as data processing
power system lasts for 8 hours before needing to be recharged so that you
can finish your day.
As primary and supplementary
power alternatives to the electric grid proliferate, Gaia's PowerTower for APS
provides automatic backup power and power quality enhancement to any alternative
power source, including solar cells, fuel cells,wind turbines, and generators.
The unit comes with all balance-of-system components and can be installed
by any licensed electrician. Two DC and one AC power inputs are standard, and
the control module automatically reconciles and synchronizes power to deliver
it to the needed circuits.
The unit can be delivered partially or fully
assembled and all components are fully tested in all configurations. `
Measurement and monitoring capability is also standard on all APS units, and the
units can be monitored and controlled individually or in aggregate.
Power Technologies focuses on addressing deficiencies in the current power landscape
by utilizing applications of energy storage. Based on a clear understanding of
how to manage energy storage and the components that make it viable (such as inverters).
Gaia’s core technological platform supports products that address a range
of inefficiently or insufficiently served power markets. Ranging from pure backup
power to backup hybrid systems to demand reduction devices, these energy management
systems are, in every sense, turn-key, modular, and scalable, and they incorporate
the best-of-breed in existing technology.
The MSPS Approach
Gaia’s core, patent-pending technology establishes a Modular Stationary Power
Supply (MSPS). The MSPS efficiently and pragmatically integrates all balance-of-system
components on a single platform and in a single unit. The result is that energy
storage, power electronics, communication and control are all seamlessly integrated
into a single turn-key, pre-assembled, and fully tested unit.
approach results in a tremendously flexible unit that:
1) Requires no
energy storage expertise by the end purchaser.
2) Fits the exact scale
both in continuous power and energy storage required by the customer.
3) Installs easily
4) Enhances existing power sources
5) Integrates any
future power sources
6) Enables truly distributed generation
individually or in a network of multiple units, locally or remotely
the end, MSPS allows for the benefits of energy storage to be directly applied
to problems that can benefit from it.
The MSPS Difference
For individual residences or businesses, Gaia’s products can provide backup
power, lower electric bills, and enable the deployment of alternative power sources.
There are also clear benefits to Gaia’s approach for the entire electrical system.
Gaia’s product line enables a distributed power network and addresses the
needs of an entire segment of electrical consumers who to date have been overlooked:
small to mid-sized businesses, and tenants within buildings.
not only do the PowerTower units themselves provide stability and efficiency for
the grid, they also enable the practical deployment of a wide variety of power
source alternatives, from lightweight, inexpensive generators to solar cells and
fuel cells. The net environmental impact of both of these benefits is tremendous.
Like many technological shifts, the change that is taking place in the electrical
infrastructure is happening on an individual level; it is composed of many local
steps that add up, in the end, to a giant leap forward. Gaia’s MSPS core technology
is stretching those steps and lengthening that leap.
