Contributing to the stable operation of critical facilities worldwide

TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that it produced its milestone 40,000th Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) unit in February 2016.

UPS are used as back-up power supplies for essential facilities like data centers and financial institutions, where a stable and continuous power supply is necessary to protect critical computers, communication equipment and control systems that would otherwise be vulnerable to blackouts or sudden voltage drops. UPS units charge batteries from an AC power source during normal operations and then supply the charged electricity in the event of a power interruption.

Mitsubishi Electric has been producing UPS since 1964, supplying critical facilities in Japan since 1965 and around the world since 1985. The products have garnered a reputation for high reliability and value that has made Mitsubishi Electric the top domestic manufacturer and allowed the company to capture the top market share in Japan for the last 20 years.
Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric intends to contribute to electricity infrastructure worldwide through further improvements in product performance, reliability and maintenance.
