IBM 1500VA LCD 2U Rack Uninterruptible Power
Supply for IBM System x
IBM System x at-a-glance guide
The IBM 1500VA LCD 2U Rack uninterruptible power supply (UPS) delivers 1000 watts of power in only
2U of rack space, providing smart energy management and the highest level of power protection that
today's IT infrastructures require. With an efficiency rating of 95% or greater, the UPS helps reduce
energy usage and cooling costs, improves energy management, and optimizes workload performance
and availability for IBM System x and BladeCenter server applications. This high-density UPS packs
more real power (watts) into a space-saving 2U of rack space to protect more equipment and leaves room
for expanding IT systems.
The IBM 1500VA LCD 2U Rack UPS is shown in Figure 1.

Did You Know?
The IBM 1500VA UPS has a bright, easily customizable, and graphical LCD display that lets you
configure the device and displays important UPS status information in one of nine languages (English,
French, German, Spanish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese).
The UPS is exceptionally easy to manage and an ideal solution for standardization across the global
enterprise.
This UPS enhances system availability with Advanced Battery Management (ABM) technology, which
significantly extends battery service life, allows individual control of receptacle groups to maximize run
time for critical devices in the event of a prolonged power outage, and provides a real-time clock that
enables precise shutdown and power up of systems in a preferred sequence, and records specific
power-related occurrences for more accurate trending and data analyses.
The IBM 1500VA UPS integrates with IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager to help improve
energy management.

About uninterruptible power supplies
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that acts as a defensive barrier between electronic
equipment and incoming power problems. It conditions, regulates, and filters out power disturbances to
ensure a clean power source for IT equipment. A UPS also provides battery backup in the event of a
power failure.
In today’s high availability server environments, unplanned power outages or line quality irregularities can
have a considerable financial impact on all sized businesses. The typical utility power is 99.9% available,
but that means that there can be almost 9 hours of downtime a year, not to mention brown-outs and other
power quality problems.
Selecting the right IBM UPS can help protect against these potentially costly incidents.

Its load segments allow for individual control of receptacle groups, maximizing run time for critical
devices.

It has an optional network management card (part number 46M4140) for enhanced UPS monitoring
and control.

It allows dual channel communication through the USB port and optional Network Management Card
at the same time, which is an effective redundancy feature that maximizes communications flexibility.

It has a Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) port to remotely power off the UPS unit to prevent
battery operation during a power failure.

It requires a 20A (110V/120V model) or 10A (230V model) single-phase circuit.

It has hot swap batteries for maximum uptime, availability, and ease of maintenance.


Its Advanced Battery Management (ABM) three-stage charging technology significantly extends
battery service life and optimizes recharge time. The three stages are:
1. The battery is quickly charged to 90% to make sure the UPS is prepared for the next outage.
2. ABM finishes charging the battery with a more moderate float charge.
3. Once the battery is charged, ABM turns the charger off, preventing the batteries from being
overcharged.

IBM UPS Manager software
The UPS comes with the IBM UPS Manager software. The management software provides up-to-date
graphics of UPS power and system data and power flow. It also gives you a complete record of critical
power events, and notifies you of important UPS or power information. If there is a power outage and the
UPS battery power becomes low, the software can automatically shut down the system to protect the data
before the UPS shutdown occurs.
Figure 7 shows normal operating using the IBM UPS Manager. The input voltage is 122V, which is within
the acceptable range, and is shown in the left pane. The output voltage of the UPS is 121V and is also
within the acceptable range. The battery is in "floating" mode, which is the second stage of the Eaton
Advanced Battery Management (ABM) three-stage charging technology.

IBM Environmental Monitoring Probe
The Environmental Monitoring Probe (EMP) (part number 46M4113) is used to report local temperature
and humidity values and make that information available to management tools such as IBM Systems
Director Active Energy Manager (AEM). The EMP connects to the UPS via the Network Management
Card. The EMP is shown in Figure 10.
Figure 10. IBM Environmental Monitoring Probe (EMP)
The Environmental Monitoring Probe has the following characteristics:

It connects to the Network Management Card (NMC) settings/sensor connection.

Its temperature and humidity thresholds are easily set to trigger alarm notifications or shut down the
protected system.

Its status can be monitored from the IBM Systems Director AEM or from the Network Management
Card web interface.

It measures temperatures between 0 and 80°C (32 and 176°F) with an accuracy of ±1°C.

It measures relative humidity between 10 and 90% with an accuracy of ±5%.

It can be located away from the UPS with a CAT5 network cable (up to 20 m (65.6 ft)).

Its user-selectable alarm thresholds enable you to define acceptable temperature or humidity limits.

It allows email notification through SMTP.

IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager
IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager (AEM) provides an array of new features that allow power
and thermal trending analysis for improved power management. AEM collects power information for each
device attached to an IBM UPS, presenting a more complete view of energy usage within the data center.
The IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager (AEM) helps:

Collect power information from each device attached to an IBM UPS, thus presenting a more
complete view of energy usage.

With server consolidation plans, because of the increased server and rack power densities that have
driven the requirement for advanced power management solutions.

In combination with the optional Environmental Monitoring Probe, AEM enables cross-platform power
and thermal trending analysis for improved power management. This configuration allows IT and
facility managers to manage data centers for optimal energy efficiency, migrate workloads to
eliminate hot spots, and transfer work from underutilized systems to conserve energy.
