Company's clean energy storage systems receive a power backup product innovation award.

VYCON, a designer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly, high-speed energy storage flywheel systems, has announced that Network Products Guide, a leading information technology research and advisory guide, has named VYCON’s VDC and VDC-XE flywheel systems winners of its 2010 Product Innovation Awards within the power backup category. This annually respected award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and groundbreaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

VYCON's VDC backup systems are carbon saving, high-speed flywheels that provide clean ride-through backup power that is predictable and environmentally responsible. Providing a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than traditional battery-reliant uninterruptible power systems (UPSs), mission-critical IT applications around the globe are depending on VYCON's flywheel systems to provide reliable and environmentally friendly energy storage. VYCON’s VDC and CDC-XE flywheel systems used with three-phase double-conversion UPSs provide reliable mission-critical protection against costly transients, harmonics, voltage sags, spikes and blackouts.

“Innovation is not just about new products alone," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. “To succeed, companies need to see innovation not as a onetime errand, but as something that has to be continuously evolved and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of a company's way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as VYCON’s clean energy storage systems are bringing improvements in how IT and data center managers protect their mission-critical computing assets in a way that reduces costs, overhead and carbon footprint.”
