Borri B8000 UPS

High Efficiency ECO UPS

The B8000 series is a transformerless UPS with IGBT input and output technology. The combination of Isolated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT) and digital processing (DSP) enables the B8000 series to have an almost negligible effect on the mains supply, providing less than 3% harmonic distortion.

When running in its normal On-Line mode, the B8000 offers AC/AC efficiency of 95% increasing to 98% in DC to AC mode. Achieving such a high DC to AC efficiency means that the batteries and your network run for longer. Should “SOL (Smart Online Mode)” be selected AC to AC efficiency increases to approximately 98%. The B8000’s special features dramatically reduce service and repair times, as all problems are diagnosed via the LCD display.

IGBT Technology

The IGBT (Isolated Gate Bipolar Transistors) rectifier allows the Borri machine to have an almost negligible effect on the mains supply, providing less than 3% harmonic distortion. The main benefit of this is that the generator can be downsized by as much as 50%. This may help the user fall outside the financial penalty band that the EEC countries are currently considering. In our opinion, transformer-less technology offers the best solution for users requiring systems below 60kVA.

Parallel or N+1Top

In normal mode the B8000 is a true double conversion UPS, alternatively it can be configured and programmed to run as a frequency converter or in SOL as a line interactive system which further reduces energy costs. When running a parallel system, it allows for the batteries or a UPS to be removed without disturbance to the load (known as hot-swap). The main strength of this is that the backup system can remain online without interruption. Up to eight machines can be connected in this way making the B8000 a flexible and versatile solution.


The use of DSP, IGBT and tricore technology ensures that the B8000 offers AC/AC efficiency of 95%. This is typically around 10% to 15% better than the conventional UPS and provides savings of 2.8kW per hour on a 40kVA installation. The B8000 runs so efficiently it generates less heat allowing for the air conditioning system to run at a slower rate. This allows for additional energy savings to be made which is another big plus for the B8000.
