Ordering Information
Eaton's Bypass Power Module (BPM) is a combined maintenance bypass (MBP) and power distribution unit (PDU) for centralized UPS designs. By combining these two functionalities, the Eaton BPM increases reliability and flexibility while decreasing electrical installation costs. Compatible with Eaton’s 9170+, 9155 and 9PX UPS models, the BPM is an ideal solution for customers looking to achieve a flexible, fully-rackmounted IT environment.

While a centralized UPS system can provide enormous value over distributed design, power distribution and reliability become more critical to the infrastructure plan. Because they are hardwired, UPS systems over 6kVA will almost always require a maintenance bypass (MBP) to provide a means of directly connecting utility power to IT equipment. MBP functionality helps keep critical loads running -- even in the event of scheduled UPS preventative maintenance, a service event or failure.

In addition to a bypass, centralized systems also need a means to distribute over 6kW of power from the UPS to connected equipment. This can pose additional challenges for both IT managers and their facilities teams. A traditional, centralized design may require a panelboard, wiring and conduit, not to mention the costs associated with electrical installation. Distribution can be even more complicated when installing the UPS next to, or inside of, an IT enclosure. By combining the MBP and PDU functionalities, the Eaton Bypass Power Module not only improves system reliability and increases flexibility, but also drastically reduces electrical installation costs for customers requiring this type of solution.

Unlike traditional MBP systems, a Bypass Power Module comes equipped with local outlets to enable an IT manager to add, remove or reconfigure PDUs throughout the lifecycle of the installation. This makes the infrastructure more apt to handle the addition of a new rack, a change of IT equipment with higher power ratings or the reconfiguration of enclosures to improve airflow than traditional, conduit-based designs. Integrating a BPM into an existing solution ensures an environment will be prepared for future growth and change.
