NATIONWIDE POWER NAMES EATON’S 93PM THE MOST VERSATILE UPS OF 2019

NATIONWIDE POWER NAMES EATON’S 93PM THE MOST VERSATILE UPS OF 2019

News Article

With hundreds of UPS equipment options on the market, ranging from manufacturer, model, kVA size and more, Nationwide Power names Eaton’s 93PM the most versatile UPS of 2019.

“At Nationwide Power, we sell millions of dollars’ worth of equipment each year, from all major manufacturers, starting as small as 2kVA and selling over 500kVA. We have selected the Eaton 93PM as the most versatile UPS model of the year due to its scalability, reliability and price point,” Ryan Murphy, National Sales Manager, states.

As a commercial Eaton Certified Power Specialist, the top tier of their partner program, the Equipment Sales team at Nationwide Power is familiar with the full Eaton product line. We sat down with Kelly Mehta, 93PM Product Manager, and asked her some questions about the 93PM:

Nationwide Power: Kelly, with so much talk surrounding the reduction of energy costs, how is the 93PM UPS positioned in the market compared to others?

Kelly Mehta: We specifically designed the 93PM to provide high efficiency operation in double conversion with an optional ESS mode available.

NP: Can you elaborate on what sets Eaton’s ESS mode apart?

Kelly: Eaton has offered the Energy Saver System (ESS) since 2009, and with over 10-years of proven experience with this technology, we have tens of millions of hours operating in ESS mode in the market. Collectively, the systems in the field have saved over 300GWh of energy. Additionally, the same reliable software monitoring and controlling the system in double conversion is used to support ESS mode, allowing the UPS to intelligently respond to power anomalies by engaging power modules in less than two milliseconds.

NP: You mentioned earlier that the 93PM is a pay-as-you-grow configuration. Can you tell us more about this?

Kelly: The 93PM was designed with a scalable platform. As your need to increase kVA grows, we can reconfigure the UPS to greater kVA sizes provided you planned for this at the time of purchase. I know Nationwide Power does a great job educating their customers by some of the orders I have seen. This design also provides for options for internal redundancy for added protection.

NP: There is also demand to reduce cooling and footprint requirements. How was this considered in the design of the 93PM?

Kelly: We designed the 93PM to be high in power density while at the same time, taking up less space thanks to its small footprint. Additionally, the high efficiency contributes to energy savings and reduces cooling requirements.

NP: We were excited to see the 208V model released. How is this being received?

Kelly: The 208V model has taken off and there is a lot of demand for it. As with most Eaton products, the available accessories and options help accommodate for a flexible and easily deployed system. As the 9390 model winds down to end-of-life (EOL), the 93PM will be the new workhorse for the foreseeable future.

Nationwide Power has been partnering with Eaton since 2001 and is the leading independent provider in the critical power industry. Its core business is focused on the sales and service of UPS equipment, batteries and service, along with supporting other critical power components such as emergency generators, switch gear, and HVAC.

Case Study #127 | Read the Fine Print

Case Study #127 | Read the Fine Print

Case Study

Nationwide Power™ is the leading provider in the critical power supply industry. Our core business is the sales and service of uninterruptible power supplies and UPS batteries, along with supporting other critical power components such as emergency generators, switch gear, and HVAC. We publish critical power related case studies, highlighting best practices and quality standards. In this case study, we review the full-service contract terms of another service provider, in attempts to educate our customers on how the terms of service can impact their out-of-pocket cost.

There is no argument that the strongest level of protection for any UPS system includes a full-service contract. In the event of an error or system failure, with a full-service contract, the provider will come to your site and complete all diagnostics and repairs at no additional cost. However, we have discovered that some service providers have included provisions in their contracts that drastically limit their coverage levels.

In the example below, the service provider gives the customer the opportunity to add on additional service levels. However, in the fine print, the additional services selected are only covered for a portion of the contract period. In this example, it is the customer’s responsibility to thoroughly read and understand the fine print in its entirety.

At Nationwide Power, we believe in transparency first and foremost, and our full-service contracts are indeed full service. Here are a few questions to ask other service providers to ensure you are truly comparing apples to apples when reviewing service contracts from different providers:

  • What parts are not fully covered for the entirety of the service contract?

    In the example above, the customer would pay a surcharge for the added coverage, only for that coverage to expire after the first 6 months of entering the service contract.

  • How many field engineers are physically located in your service zone?

    If you encounter an emergency situation with your critical power equipment, you will want to know how quickly a Critical Power Professional™ will be able to arrive on-site. Believe it or not, some companies will position themselves as having a national footprint, only to fly their field engineers across the country. Not only is this an expensive way to provide preventive maintenance, but it becomes nearly impossible to respond to emergency situations.

  • What is the “out-clause” in the service agreement?

    A reputable and qualified service provider understands and is confident in the value of their service, and therefore does not lock customers into iron-clad, long-term contracts. If your service contract does not have a 30-day out-clause, keep looking.

  • What type of on-hand inventory does your company house?

    Some independent providers merely act as middle men with very little warehouse inventory or none at all. There are also independent providers that resort to storing their inventory in outdoor areas where equipment and parts are subject to whatever weather conditions exist throughout the year. Look for a company with ample parts and equipment inventory on-hand that are properly stored to ensure lasting quality. Additionally, if your equipment is approaching or has passed EOL (end-of-life) recommendations, ask specifically what parts that company has available to service your equipment. The most cost-effective solution for your equipment may be part replacements. However, if the service provider does not have access to those parts, they will recommend new equipment despite your best interests or budgetary needs. Check out our recent new article on Why Size Matters.

Why Size Matters

Why Size Matters

News Article

The industry of uninterruptible power supply is an interesting one. Over the years, we have seen UPS service providers make claims that become challenging for them to fulfill due to being beyond their current infrastructure.
When comparing quotes from multiple UPS service providers, it is important to do your homework and not take the quote at face value. Awarding a contract based on price alone is often much more costly in the long run, and here is why:

Every Nationwide Power contract comes with:

  • The most experienced and diverse Field Engineer team in the industry. [1]
  • Our commitment and track record of extending the lifespan of legacy equipment well past the OEM end-of-life.
  • Access to over $10 million in parts and inventory in a 57,000 square foot climate-controlled warehouse. We have the ability to send in-stock parts same day and get your unit up and running right away.
  • When the time comes to replace batteries or equipment, our volume discounts are passed down to our contracted customers. Additionally, you will have access to refurbished and surplus equipment

How does this compare to the other guys? We said we have seen some interesting things over the years. Here are a few examples:

  • Outside storage of UPS equipment and parts inventory. It would be very upsetting to receive a refurbished unit or replacement parts that have weathered multiple seasons.
  • Claims to have access to parts inventory or refurbished equipment, but the corporate office and warehouse are located on the 52nd floor of a downtown building. Logistically, this would be a near impossible setup.
  • Claims to have a national footprint, but the corporate office is a small home apartment.

How do they get away with it?
This scenario happens because some customers are focused on price alone, and forget to truly pre-qualify their UPS service provider.

True statement: we receive calls from these ”service providers” regularly, as they are looking to purchase parts from Nationwide Power or sub-contract our labor in an effort to service their clients.

Protect your critical power assets. A little groundwork to pre-qualify providers can go a long way.

Can you tell which warehouse belongs to Nationwide Power?

A

B

C

The answer is: A! Believe it or not, B and C are satellite images of two of our closest competitors.

In conclusion, the next time you receive multiple quotes, do a little homework first to make sure you are truly getting the best deal. Here is your guide to finding the best UPS Service Provider.

[1] Average experience: 22.5 years as of 10/29/2018 with an average 8+ years of direct OEM experience.

Recycling and Proper Disposing of UPS Batteries – Doing Our Part

Recycling and Proper Disposing of UPS Batteries – Doing Our Part

News Article

Lead-acid and lithium batteries have many uses in all parts of the world. Lead-acid or lithium batteries are the backbone to any uninterruptible power supply system, and a lot goes into their proper recycling and disposal.

The combination of sulfuric acid and large amounts of lead in UPS batteries can be highly toxic. Exposure to excessive levels of lead can cause damage to the brain and kidney functions, along with a lengthy list of other health risks. In developing countries, over three million people die each year due to lead contamination from the processing of lead-acid batteries.

Nationwide Power is committed to doing its part when it comes to proper disposal and recycling of UPS batteries. We have partnered with regional recyclers that deliver loads of used batteries to North American smelters each month. Proper removal and recycling of UPS batteries is included in every UPS battery quote.

Additionally, Nationwide Power stays current with the latest developments in UPS battery recycling and environmental safety. As one example, we have been closely following AquaMetals, a US based company that could be on the brink of revolutionizing the recycling process for lead-acid and lithium batteries.
