Consulting-Specifying Engineer Readers Honor MGE Office Protection Systems With Silver Award in 'A Perfect 10' Product of the Year Competition

Scalable UPS Solution Takes Second Place in Power Generation Category

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - MGE Office Protection Systems (, a world leader in providing end-to-end power protection systems for today's power hungry computing, IT and industrial applications, has just received the Silver Award for its Pulsar MX RT UPS system in Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine's annual "A Perfect 10" Product of the Year competition. Originally placed as Finalist by an expert panel of consulting engineers, the innovative system was judged by CSE's readers as they voted throughout July to determine the 2007 winner. Designed to deliver the highest level of protection for 20 to 110 servers and provide matchless scalability from 5 kVA to 20 kVA featuring on-line double-conversion technology, the Pulsar MX UPS System was honored as the Second Place winner in the Power Generation category, and will be presented in CSE's November issue.

"We are honored to receive such a prestigious award from Consulting-Specifying Engineer's editorial staff and readers," said MGE Office Protection Systems' VP of North and South America, Curtiz Gangi. "To receive such an accolade from the engineering community is an honor, and we are pleased that the publication has given our innovative Pulsar MX UPS systems their seal of approval. As a team, we strive each day to provide the UPS industry with unmatched quality and reliability, always looking to heighten the bar in design and customer satisfaction."

Created to accommodate the growth of small and mid-sized companies as power requirements increase, MGE Office Protection Systems has designed the Pulsar MX UPS system as a fully scalable solution to deliver business continuity 7X24. Utilizing a redundant architecture, the system can scale power and runtime as demand increases or when higher levels of availability are required -- all in a compact and affordable package. When the Pulsar MX on-line double-conversion power modules are connected in parallel within the Pulsar MX Frame, power can be readily scaled from 5 kVA to 10, 15 (with redundancy) or 20 kVA power levels -- without disrupting connected equipment -- all within the Pulsar MX's compact 16U (28 inch) frame. With up to 18 kW, this solution provides the highest power density in the industry and is a perfect match for a rack fully populated with blade servers. For the first time, the same power and battery sub-modules can be used for both the standalone UPS and the modular chassis, which significantly reduces the entry cost to scalability. Users can decide to acquire a cost-competitive Pulsar MX 5000 RT, and then migrate to a fully scalable, redundant solution using the Pulsar MX Frame while still using the original power and battery sub-modules of the original 5 kVA standalone UPS.

Consulting-Specifying Engineer's Silver Award is one of many coveted honors that MGE Office Protection Systems has received globally within the past 24 months. Known for providing highly reliable power protection products in a number of industries including IT, reseller and industrial/manufacturing, MGE has demonstrated its strength with commendations from such publications as MicroHelbdo (France), Décision Informatique (France), Prohardver (Hungary), PC Magazine (Russia), Dealer World (Spain), MacWorld (Spain), PC World (Spain) Personal Computer World (U.K.), IT World, (U.K.) and PC Pro (U.K.) MGE Office Protection Systems' award winning products include the Pulsar 1000, Pulsar MX RT, Evolution, Ellipse ASR 1000, Midspan PoE, Pulsar Extreme, Comet EX RT and Protection Center.
