At Data Centre World 2014 on 26–27 February, Socomec will showcase its range of uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) designed to meet the demands of data centres. The UPS equipment guarantees the continuity and safety of a data centre’s power supply.

Green Power 2.0 is a transformerless unit that combines energy efficiency with unity power to provide what is described by Socomec as the ‘ultimate, future-proof’ critical power solution.

There are units available from 160kVA to 500kVA, including the latest 250kVA unit.

Socomec UPS systems comprise the widest ever range approved by the Carbon Trust’s Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme (ECA) for taxable benefits on the purchase of new equipment. This means that any new purchase of an ECA-approved Socomec UPS unit entitles users to apply to receive capital allowance benefits and to claim back costs against the purchase of the new equipment from the government under its energy-saving guidelines.

At Data Centre World 2014, Socomec will also highlight its Diris and Countis energy measurement units, which measure, analyse and monitor network data at every level within the power infrastructure, and Atys automatic transfer switches, which are designed specifically for low-voltage automatic transfer applications.

Key features and benefits

Diris and Countis

  • The Diris A multi-function measuring stations monitor and optimise networks by alarm management, monitoring distribution parameters and the remote control of electrical devices. They communicate via Ethernet and have temperature modules.
  • The Diris N also covers the metering and counting functions. It also analyses the quality of the energy supplied in compliance with the criteria defined by standard EN 50160 and provides a detailed analysis of pollution such as harmonic, inter-harmonic, transient or flicker-effect.
  • The Diris BCMS enables current, energy and power monitoring in power distribution units or remote power panels on up to 72 branch circuits. Furthermore, 10 additional circuits (mains incomers) can also be monitored — all within a single device to optimise space usage.
  • The Diris BCMS 720 system improves energy efficiency by permanently monitoring the current, energy and power on distribution circuits. Its compact form means that the system can be retrofitted into all types of power distribution unit or remote power panel.
  • The Diris BCMS 720 delivers reduced energy consumption in parallel with increased power availability, therefore maximising uptime. The system also enables energy costs to be easily allocated and optimises power capacity management, allowing critical facilities to evolve over time.


  • The Atys M is designed to control switching between two single-phase or three-phase sources of supply in remote automatic or manual modes for emergency operations. This transfer switching equipment is designed for use with low-voltage power systems with interrupted supply of the load during transfer.
  • The Atys M 3s (RTSE) is operated through an externally automated, voltage-free contact in the three positions (0, I and II), following a pulse logic or maintained contactor.
  • The Atys M 6 (ATSE) is the automatic version, which controls supply and automatic transfers based on the configurable parameters.

Uninterruptible Power Supplies with Socomec

Founded in 1922, SOCOMEC are an industrial group that boasts a workforce in excess of 2500 people worldwide.

With products marketed under the trademark SOCOMEC UPS, the extensive range of products fulfils any and every need for a Continuous Electrical Power Supply of the highest quality.

Innovative Power Solutions

The UPS offered by SOCOMEC UPS, in addition to the Secure Critical Power UPS Systems, Rectifiers, Harmonic Equalisers and DC to AC/AC to DC Converters, makes up the most complete range offered worldwide and covers the widest range of applications with something to suit each and every sector of the market.

SOCOMEC UPS were the first manufacturer in France to offer static power supplies in 1968. In 1980 they were the first to design a UPS with PWM technology, 1996 saw them being the first to integrate IGBT technology with major power sources and in 2000, SOCOMEC became the first designer to integrate a UPS with a modular rack system.

Since then they have also been the first to integrate hybrid components in 2001, they developed the first 200kVA UPS to include an IGBT rectifier in 2003 and came up with new battery charging designs in 2004. In 2006 they also developed a replacement for the traditional battery based solution by creating a dynamic energy storage system.
