Riello UPS's Sentryum Passes Airport Test With Flying Colours

WREXHAM, Wales - Aug. 5, 2020 - PRLog -- Riello UPS's Sentryum range of uninterruptible power supplies is flying high by helping to protect critical equipment at Belfast International Airport (BIA).

A 15 kVA version of the uninterruptible power supply manufacturer's new transformerless series has been installed in the airport's main IT communications room to upgrade an ageing 10 kVA unit.

Chris McGarry, IT Manager for Belfast International Airport, explains: "One of our main IT UPS systems was coming to the end of its lifecycle and needed to be replaced.

"The UPS in question supports critical IT infrastructure at the airport. Whilst we have many redundant systems in place, it is very important all our UPS systems are fully-functional to avoid any power loss and possible disruption to the airport's IT systems."

The new UPS was a 15 kVA model from Riello UPS's transformer-free Sentryum series with internal batteries providing five minutes of backup.

Delivering unity power (kVA = kW) and exceptional efficiency of up to 96.5%, the Sentryum is available in 10, 15, and 20 kVA versions.

One of its major benefits is the choice of three different cabinet sizes to offer end-users flexibility depending on their available floorspace and desired battery runtime.

The smallest Compact (CPT) cabinet was chosen for the upgrade, with its dimensions of just 28cm wide by 70cm high by 84cm deep ensuring the installation took up the minimum amount of space in the IT room.

The electrical works were carried out by Belfast-based Ashdale Engineering Ltd, a certified Riello UPS reseller with a long-standing relationship with the airport.

Chris McGarry continues: "We have been working with Ashdale Engineering Ltd for more than 20 years. They have supplied and maintained UPS systems at the airport and have always provided us with a reliable and competitive service.

"We're very pleased with the project. As much work as possible was done during normal hours with final connections made out of hours at a time that suited the airport, resulting in the least downtime possible."

Belfast International Airport is Northern Ireland's principal aviation hub and is also the second busiest on the entire island of Ireland. In 2018 it welcomed more than 6.2 million passengers, ranking it in the top 10 of all UK airports.

Several high-profile airlines operate from its facilities, including easyJet, Jet2.com, and Ryanair.
