IBM 3000 VA LCD 3U
Rack UPS
Space-saving, high-density power protection
Highlights
In today’s high-availability server environments, unplanned power
outages or line quality irregularities can have a considerable financial
impact on both small and medium and large enterprise businesses.
Selecting the right Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) can efficiently, reliably and affordably help protect against these costly
incidents.
●
Provides up to 3000 VA/2700 W in only
3U of rack space
●
A 95 percent or greater efficiency rating
helps reduce energy usage and costs
●
Intuitive, customizable LCD display in
nine languages and bundled intelligent
IBM UPS Manager software enhance
control and manageability
The IBM 3000 VA LCD 3U Rack UPS provides smart energy management and the high-level power protection that today’s IT infrastructures require.
●
IPv6 compliance for future proofing and
real-time clock for error logging
●
Integrates with IBM Systems Director
Active Energy Manager™
Delivering up to 2700 watts of power in 3U of rack space, this
3000 Rack UPS optimizes power protection and is designed for highefficiency operation. This can help reduce energy usage and cooling
costs, improve energy management and optimize workload performance and availability for IBM System x® and BladeCenter® server
environments.
Achieve fast ROI with high-density and energyefficient design
This UPS packs more real power (watts) into its space-saving 3U
design. The compact unit preserves valuable rack space to protect
more equipment and leave room for expanding IT systems.
Designed to operate at a 95 percent or greater efficiency rating, the
IBM 3000 UPS lowers power consumption, produces less heat dissipation and decreases cooling costs. That means that even an organization
with only a modest number of servers can significantly reduce energy
bills without compromising performance or reliability.
Superior performance and high availability
An inherent aspect of this UPS is ABM technology, which incorporates
sophisticated sensing circuitry and an innovative three-stage charging
technique to significantly extend battery service life and optimize

recharge time. ABM also provides up to 60-days notification
when the battery is approaching the end of its useful life, providing you more than sufficient time to hot swap the batteries
without powering down the UPS or protected loads.
For applications requiring extended backup times, an external
battery module can be added to the IBM 3000 UPS, delivering hours of backup time to critical systems during a prolonged power outage.
Bright graphical LCD user interface simplifies UPS monitoring and
management
The IBM 3000 UPS includes, free-of-charge, intelligent
IBM UPS Manager software to monitor, manage and gracefully shut down connected load in the event of an extended
power interruption. The UPS allows for dual communication
through the USB port and optional Network Management
Card (46M4110) at the same time, an effective redundancy
feature to maximize communications flexibility. The NMC
supports IPv6 IP addressing and security and provides
convenient, over-the-network UPS remote monitoring and
management through a standard web browser. An optional
Environmental Monitoring Probe (46M4113) is also available
for thermal (temperature and humidity) management
requirements.
The IBM 3000 UPS delivers up to 3000 VA/2700 W of advanced power
protection in a space-saving 3U rack design.
The UPS is also equipped with load segments, which allows
for individual control of receptacle groups that can be programmed to preserve battery run time for more critical
devices. For increased accuracy, the IBM 3000 UPS features a
real-time clock, which enables precise shutdown and powerup of systems in preferred sequence and real-time stamping
on event logs to track and record specific power-related
occurrences over time.
Improved energy management
IBM Systems Director Active Energy Manager (AEM) provides an array of new features that allow power and thermal
trending analysis for improved power management. By plugging systems into an IBM UPS, AEM is able to collect power
information for each device, presenting a more complete
view of energy usage within the data center. With access to
accurate, detailed information on power usage right at their
fingertips, IT and facility managers are now able to manage
data center for optimal energy-efficiency, migrating workloads to eliminate hot spots or transferring work from
underutilized systems to conserve energy.
The IBM 3000 UPS is equipped with two cascadable REPO
ports enabling the UPS to be remotely switched off in the
event of an emergency.
Intuitive UPS management
The intelligent display of the IBM 3000 UPS offers a bright,
easy-to-navigate panel that provides configurability and displays important status information in nine languages—
English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Korean,
Japanese, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. The
IBM 3000 UPS is exceptionally easy to manage and an ideal
enterprise solution for standardization across the global
enterprise. Run time, load and other vital information and
troubleshooting are displayed.
