Schneider Electric’s Galaxy VS UPS gains smart battery modules

Schneider Electric’s Galaxy VS UPS is getting an upgrade, as the company has outfitted the system with new smart battery modules. This should lead to much improved availability and flexibility when compared to the Galaxy VS UPS system without the new modules. 

Like other products in the Galaxy VS UPS system, the new three-phase UPS with internal smart battery modules is completely modular and has been designed to be easy to install. It’s all contained within a single rack solution, making it ideal for edge installations, while it also delivers the necessary power to support heavy IT loads. 

Specifiers can choose models offering between 10 to 50 kW of power, with the smart battery modules improving availability with added battery flexibility and monitoring, redundant battery strings, and self-configuration. The new modules also reduce risks by ensuring that critical loads are always protected with highly predictable runtimes and battery redundancy.

“With its impressive efficiency and internal smart battery modules along with being EcoStruxure Ready, the latest Galaxy VS is an innovative and flexible choice for end-users, distributors, partners, and integrators in diverse environments, especially edge computing and critical infrastructures,” said Christopher Thompson, vice president, 3 Phase Line of Business, Schneider Electric. 

“By integrating smart features like self-configuring and temperature monitoring, this new Galaxy VS is the optimal choice to achieve increased availability without sacrificing performance.”

The Galaxy VS with internal smart battery modules is available globally except for Greater China and Japan. Depending on power and run time requirements, two cabinet options are available offering 10-50 kW (400V), 10-25 kW (208V), and 20-50 kW (480V). Start-up service is included to guaranteed optimise system performance, quality, and safety. The system continues to support theEcoStruxure IT Expert and EcoStruxure Asset Advisor software.
