IRWINDALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - Due to the popularity of its recently introduced FN Series UPS Plus, Falcon Electric, Inc., ( an award-winning supplier of power protection and conversion solutions, today announced the next products in its series of scalable protection for growing networks and data centers. The new FN Series double-conversion on-line Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSes) expand the family's range up to 40kVA. As power continuity becomes more critical to businesses every day, Falcon's engineering teams are continually developing power solutions that are expandable and flexible yet have an affordable entry cost. Now, users have the choice of scaling from 3kVA to 24kVA or with this new model release, scale from 8kVA to 40kVA in the same compact footprint as the FN Series 6kVA unit.

The parallel or N+1 redundant UPSes are designed to meet the demands of IT infrastructures with a scalable platform and N+1 redundancy. The new FN Series models achieve many technical milestones including a faster processor utilizing digital signal processing (DSP) technology, thereby improving performance, capability and reliability. An FN system can be configured using individual 8 and 10kVA models, providing up to 40kVA capacity or to 30kVA with N+1 redundancy. This approach eliminates the added expense of buying additional cabinets to house control, power and battery modules -- providing users with a lower Total Cost of Ownership. In addition, the new FN models can be easily programmed by the user for use as a 50Hz or 60Hz frequency converter -- making the FN Series an ideal choice for worldwide power applications.

"Our first FN Series UPS Plus is receiving great reviews by our customers due to its flexibility and standard features that are options in competing systems. The affordable scalability of these units has filled a void in the market," stated Michael Stout, Falcon's vice president of engineering. "These new FN models give customers with larger power needs the same great flexibility and redundancy as our 3kVA to 24kVA models without sacrificing the ability to easily scale up as power demands increase."

Loaded with many advanced features, the new FN models also include a wide input voltage window -- a must for fluctuating power environments, as well as a Remote Emergency Power Off (REPO) interface and an LCD display with advanced monitoring for quick and easy UPS management. Furthermore, the FN Series offers hot-swappable, user-replaceable batteries, optional battery packs and chargers for the highest level of power availability.

The system's true regenerative (double-conversion) on-line technology provides the highest level of protection against a wide spectrum of power problems including blackouts, brownouts, surges and transients. In addition, input Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuitry greatly reduces harmonics that can adversely affect sensitive computers and electronic equipment. These features are significant as power outages and power glitches can cost organizations thousands -- if not millions -- of dollars in lost processes, transactions and productivity.

Advanced communications with unlimited client software licensing

For easy monitoring of the UPS systems, Falcon's UPSilon® computer shutdown and management software supports all Windows® platforms including Vista, as well as Novell NetWare® 5 & 6, LINUX and FreeBSD. UPSilon for UNIX is available for purchase and supports most popular UNIX platform and OS versions. For remote management, users may purchase an optional SNMP/HTTP agent board that installs directly inside the UPS and provides a TCP-IP addressable, 10/100 Ethernet port. Unlimited server shutdown client software licensing is provided at no additional cost.

Available now, the new FN Series UPS Plus models are designed to UL and cUL standards and meet FCC Class A requirements. List pricing starts at $5,998 for the 8kVA model and all models include a two-year warranty. For more information, contact Falcon at 800-842-6940 or email
