The Sentryum 10 – 20 kVA/kW offers the best combination of power availability, energy efficiency and global performance ensuring installation and running cost savings.
It is the very latest Riello UPS development resulting in a third-generation transformer-free UPS, originally introduced into the market over twenty years ago.
This ultimate solution is rated at output power factor 1 and defined as ON LINE double conversion technology in accordance with VFI-SS-111 classification (as set out in standard IEC EN 62040-3).
The Sentryum series is a transformer-free UPS available in 10-15-20 kVA/kW models with three-phase/single-phase input and single-phase output, and 10-15-20 kVA/kW models with three-phase input and output.
Modern guidelines and sustainable best practices direct us to conceive and design UPS with particular focus on the entire product life cycle, therefore applying ultimate but resilient technologies, recyclable materials and miniaturisation of assemblies whilst ensuring the systems global reliability, which is pivotal for any UPS. The internal card layout has been optimised to reduce the number of components, to reduce the number of interconnections and to reduce the space required, whilst at the same time increase global reliability and Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) and to minimise operational expenditure such as service operations and maintenance costs.
The result is an outstanding range of three different solutions providing powerful but compact designs as follows:
Compact: less than 0.25 square meters and only 0.17 cubic meters of volume.
Active: less than 0.35 square meters and only 0.33 cubic meters of volume.
Xtend: less than 0.4 square meters and less than 0.5 cubic meters of volume.
Sentryum is a true ON LINE double-conversion UPS system providing the very highest levels of power availability, flexibility and unrivalled energy efficiency with superior performance for any small Data Centre and mission critical applications.
With a full power rating (kVA=kW unity pf), the Sentryum provides the maximum available power without any de-rating. Thanks to the three-level IGBT inverter topology (constructed using modules rather than discrete components) and innovative digital control, the Sentryum provides up to 96.5% overall efficiency, whilst maintaining a reduced number of components, connections and ribbon cables, which increases the overall system reliability, thanks to a higher MTBF.
Riello’s advanced average current mode digital PFC control and State-of-the-art three-level NPC inverters working at high frequency (18 kHz), contributes to minimise the UPS’s impact on the grid and hence reducing the overall operational costs and energy bills.
Sentryum applies a zero impact onto its power source, whether this is from the mains power supply or a generator, this results in:
High power availability
Sentryum’s fully rated design delivers full power (kVA=kW) regardless of the load power factor or operating temperature (full rated power is available up to 40 °C).
Furthermore, Sentryum’s advanced digital control makes it possible to deliver up 250% inverter current for 200 msec and 150% for 300 msec. The high overcurrent availability enables the system to deal with sudden peak loads (without static bypass intervention) and provide the short circuit current if required during operation on battery.
The innovative input stage design provides extremely high battery recharging current, whilst at the same time an energy efficient conversion process during battery operation to reduce the power wasted and to increase the autonomy time compared to legacy DC/ AC converters.
Smart Battery Management
Proper battery care is critical to ensure the correct operation of the UPS during emergency conditions. The Riello UPS Smart Battery Management consists of a series features and capabilities to optimise battery management and obtain the best performance and operating life possible.
Battery recharging: Sentryum is suitable for use with conventional hermetically sealed lead-acid (VRLA), AGM and GEL batteries, Open Vent and Nickel Cadmium batteries.
Sentryum is also compatible with ultimate alternative backup power sources such as Li- Ion batteries and Supercapacitors.
Superior battery charging current availability, ie up to 20 Amperes for the 20 kVA/kW power range, meaning that the Sentryum can be utilised within any extended battery autonomy application.
Depending on the battery type, different charging methods are available:
Recharge voltage compensation based on ambient temperature to prevent excessive battery charging or overheating.
Battery tests to diagnose in advance any reduction in performance or problems with the batteries.
Deep discharge protection: during extended low-load discharges, the end-of-discharge voltage is increased – as recommended by battery manufacturers – to prevent damage or reduced battery performance.
Ripple current: recharge ripple current (residual AC component at low frequency) is one of the main causes of reduced reliability and battery life. Using a high frequency battery charger, Sentryum reduces this value to negligible levels, prolonging battery life and maintaining high performance over a long period of time.
Wide voltage range: the rectifier is designed to operate within a wide input voltage range (up to -40% at half load), reducing the need for battery discharge and thus helping to extend battery life.
With its flexible range of three solutions, configuration, performance, accessories and options, Sentryum is suitable for use in a wide range of applications:
Sentryum is equipped with a coloured graphic touch screen display providing UPS information, measurements, operating states and alarms in different languages.
The default screen displays the UPS status, graphical indication of the energy path through the UPS and the operational condition of the various assemblies (rectifier, batteries, inverter, bypass) within the UPS.
Furthermore, the user interface includes a UPS status led bar which delivers immediate and clear information regarding the overall status of the UPS by changing the colour (might be light blue, dark blue, orange and red) according with the operating mode and condition.
