Schneider Electric has expanded its Galaxy 300 uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system which now includes 60 kVA and 80 kVA models.

Designed for businesses with small server rooms, the Galaxy 300 60 kVA and 80 kVA UPS systems are designed with three-phase power protection to prevent downtime and data loss for mission critical applications.

Schneider Electric claims the UPSs are supplied in robust, simple-to-install and cost-effective configurations. The new systems boast lower operational and cooling costs with power efficiency and total harmonic distortion of current at Iess than 3.5 percent with full load, says Schneider.

UPS for the edge 

Sam Wu, global product manager at Schneider Electric said: “Our low and medium-level power users and channel partners expressed a need for a system that offered greater power availability, reliability, manageability and convenience.

”With the addition of the 60 kVA and 80 kVA models, the Galaxy 300 10 to 80 kVA UPS portfolio is now designed to serve a range of organizations while directly answering customer and partner needs by offering a best-in-class UPS with simplified and maintenance features, as well as enhanced efficiency and ease of use via an intuitive interface” Wu said.

The new UPS family allows for standard installation of one or two independent power sources, and utilizes an online double conversion topology to provide isolation between input and output with zero transfer time.

A built-in 100 percent rated bypass static switch prevents interruption by allowing load transfer to utility power during heavy overloads.

Connected equipment can be powered with two UPS unites in parallel to increase system redundancy.

The system provides users with options for an integrated battery backup with up to 10 minutes of runtime or a robust charger for external batteries on rack, or in external cabinets, which provide run-times of up to four hours.

Users are able to monitor and manage power requirements locally and remotely through a simple network management protocol interface.
