UNIBLOCK™ - POWERBRIDGE™ - UPS - Rotary - DRUPS - DeRUPS - Energy Storage



Piller is the undisputed world leader in the supply of rotary high-performance UPS and power conditioning products, providing peace of mind protection of mission-critical operations to some of the leading names in the financial, broadcasting, data centre, industrial and aviation sectors.

Piller’s rotary UNIBLOCK™ UPS systems, provides high reliability, greater than 20-year service life and ease of maintenance, resulting in the lowest overall Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), such that our solutions are equally suitable for smaller installations where reliability is paramount.

The UNIBLOCK™ UPS system is giving the highest performance with minimum components and combines the benefits of all different power supply configurations for short term or long term bridging, with standby generation or with cogeneration. The UNIBLOCK™ systems can be used in low and medium voltage applications, cooling can be by air or chilled water, ride through storage can be batteries or flywheel. Single machines can be paralleled in standard or IP-Bus configurations for redundancy and added capacity.

Rotary Product Offerings

Piller’srotary UPS solutions are built around the renowned UNIBLOCK™ system, delivering outputs from 500 kW to 40 MW in both independent and diesel-based configurations with a range of energy storage options. The UNIBLOCK™ offers up to 97% efficiency and highest reliability with state-of-the-art technology, unique design and versatile options in either conventional UPS or DeRUPS™ configurations, whilst the equally reliable UBTD+ diesel coupled unit produces the most space-efficient power supply possible.

Piller also offers the POWERBRIDGE™ kinetic energy storage system, a vertically-mounted flywheel which is electrically connected to the UNIBLOCK™, providing the longest ride through times available in the industry today. This feature ensures assured handover to back-up generation assets and significantly minimises the number of diesel engine starts when deployed in a DRUPS or DeRUPS™ configuration.

The unique operation of the POWERBRIDGE™ also ensures a dynamic performance which is unparalleled in terms of ensuring frequency stability for systems with fluctuating load profiles or gas generators with less responsive regulations.
