City backed up by Power Control

The solution and results

Working in conjunction with TClarke and fibre optic infrastructure builder, which has a prominent position on site, Power Control’s highly skilled team of engineers completed all works and commissioning by Sunday evening.

Designed and manufactured in Italy, the Borri B9000FXS UPS range from Power Control is an ultra high efficiency, transformer based solution and has a TÜV efficiency certification of up to 95%. As one of the most resilient backup power supply solutions on the market, Borri B9000FXS UPS systems are used in critical data centres infrastructures all over the world.

With a relationship spanning almost a decade, Power Control is committed to Borri three-phase UPS systems technologies and is the official UK distributor for the Italian manufacturer. Power Control has a high level of engineering involvement, which is supported by it’s all encompassing service and UPS maintenance programmes and high UPS and product spares stock levels. The company also receives invaluable direct manufacturing and technical back-up from Borri Spa.

Commenting on Power Control’s recent projects, the company’s Director, Rob Mather said: “The need for added levels of power protection has never been greater. The significant rise in power disturbances, which are being further augmented by the increase in dependence on data storage and continued infrastructure growth, have meant that many are assessing their existing business continuity strategies.

Power Control’s Divisional Sales Director, Matt de Frece concluded: “We have worked tirelessly over the years to ensure that the UK market is able to recognise the supreme quality and performance of Borri three-phase UPS systems. The Borri UPS range is now regarded nationwide as one of the most resilient, efficient and high quality on the market.

“Aligned to our commitment to UPS technologies, we have also invested heavily in our service and engineering departments to ensure that our customers receive the very best quality of service throughout all their dealings with us. Our approach and diligent work ethic means we are able to complete projects with tight deadlines and complicated circumstances, such as the one we have just completed for TClarke.”

About the Product


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.

The Borri B9000FXS also boasts:

  • Three year warranty for peace of mind
  • Front access for ease of use
  • Scalable up to 8 units in parallel for changing needs
  • IGBT rectifier for newer technological advances and faster switching
  • Smart Online functionality >98% for efficiency
  • Internal galvanic isolation transformer to increase efficiency but reduce weight and size
  • THDi <3% with input power factor >0.99 to reduce power distortion and installation costs

We have worked with Power Control for a number of years now and are always impressed by the quality of service we receive. The team, from sales through to project management and engineering all operate professionally and efficiently. I knew that they would be able to meet our customers' expectations and ours, without any problems. With regards to the UPS system provided by Power Control, we have always found the Borri UPS units to be incredibly reliable. Whilst maintaining impressive levels of resilience, they also deliver in terms of efficiency rating, which has become increasingly important with customers. In this instance, the Borri B9000FXS UPS units were the preferred choice because of their design characteristics being a perfect match for the control of harmonics created by switch mode power supplies in the data centre.
