City of Glasgow College

A well educated choice for Glasgow City College

The solution and results

Home to around 40,000 students a year, safeguarding the college’s IT infrastructure is paramount. The Borri UPS solutions were chosen not only for their superior technology but also their proven power protection performance. To allow for additional redundancy the Borri B9000FXS UPS systems are positioned in an N+1 configuration and set in parallel redundant mode for extra resilience.

Designed and built to the highest manufacturing standards, the Borri B9000FXS online double conversion UPS systems feature intuitive monitoring software and a Smart Online (SOL) mode, which can significantly reduce energy consumption. The units are TÜV certified at 95% efficiency and achieve substantial subsequent savings.

About the Product

b9000fxs
b9000fxs

Certified by TÜV NORD Cert as one of the most efficient and resilient transformer based UPS systems on the market, the Borri B9000FXS demonstrate best in class efficiency standards of up to 95%. They have a negligible effect on the mains supply as they come with IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) rectifiers as standard, which provide less than three percent harmonic distortion.

The low harmonic input, which is maintained by an IGBT based rectifier, allows this particular UPS system to have little reliance on the mains supply and therefore the chosen standby generator could be considerably downsized. This helps the increase in efficiency and further cost savings.
