The advantages of 380 Vdc power architectures for modern data centers

This white paper from the EMerge Alliance is introducing and demonstrating the advantages of some of the possible DC power architectures for data centers.

Specifically, this paper presents currently available architectures consistent with ANSI/BICSI 002-2011 and the EMerge Alliance Data/Telecom Center Standard Version 1.0.

The report is interesting reading and proves the future for 380VDC as the better alternative for data centers compared with conventional AC UPS.

A power solution from Eltek combines the advantages of DC power while meeting specific AC demands, providing the power you need to grow your data center business into the future.
