UPS launch satisfies critical power requirements of today’s data centre industry

Schneider Electric chose the first day of Data Centre World to introduce its latest uninterruptible power supply (UPS) product, which is designed to meet the critical power requirements of IT, commercial, and industrial facilities.

The Galaxy VS is a highly efficient, modular, easy-to-deploy, 10-100 kW, three-phase UPS. Its compact and flexible design addresses the particular requirements of edge computing and small data centres where space and access are at a premium.

Schneider claims up to 99% efficient and with optional Lithium-ion batteries, doubling battery life, the Galaxy VS Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is ‘unmatched’ in the industry.

“With its impressive TCO and availability, the Galaxy VS is a new technically superior offer that resonates with customers because it solves numerous modernization challenges while providing Schneider reliability,” said Christopher Thompson, vice president, 3 Phase Line of Business, Schneider Electric.

“Our newest UPS strikes the right balance for edge and cloud customers who need innovative solutions that are easy to deploy in this hybrid ecosystem. With its compact, modular design, the Galaxy VS can deploy faster and in a smaller space than traditional UPS’s, saving users time and money.”

The innovative and robust Galaxy VS is also EcoStruxure Ready. Site managers or technical personnel can remotely monitor their Galaxy VS system status anytime, anywhere with the smartphone app.

On the cost savings front, the product provides up to 99% efficiency when operated in patented ECOnversion mode.

A compact design offers a footprint saving by providing high-density technology especially suited to confined spaces with full front access for easy and fast connection and services.

A lithium-ion battery technology options has been included for longer life energy storage restore and provides longer life than traditional battery solutions.

The Galaxy VS, which has a wide power range from 20 kW to 100 kW (400V & 480V) and 10-50 kW (208V) with one global platform, is now available worldwide through Schneider Electric and its partners.
