Schneider Electric announced the global launch of the Galaxy VL 200-500 kW (400V/480V) 3- phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS). This is the newest addition to the Galaxy family.
This highly compact UPS will be available worldwide and offers up to 99 percent efficiency in ECOnversion mode for a full return on investment within two years for medium and large data centres, commercial and industrial facilities. The company said.
The design of the VL Galaxy is compact and half the size of the industry average at .8 m2. Its modular architecture will enable the data centre professionals to scale power from 200 kW to 500 kW with 50 kW power modules which will help in providing flexibility to their business demands.
Schneider Electric with Galaxy VL has introduced Live Swap, a feature that delivers touch safe design throughout the process of adding or replacing the power modules even while the UPS is online and fully operational. The Live Swap’s touch safe design offers increased protection for employees who no longer have to transfer the UPS to maintenance bypass or battery operation during the insertion or removal of the power modules. The company added.
“The new, energy-efficient Galaxy VL sets a very high standard for UPS innovation and is designed to help our customers grow while minimizing footprint and cost of ownership. It is in keeping of our focus on the future requirements for data centres and meeting the demands for adaptability, resiliency, efficiency, and sustainability. The newest addition to the Galaxy family is a Green Premium product that delivers top performance, supports sustainability objectives, and fills a previous gap in the market for the midrange power segment”, said Mustafa Demirkol, VP, 3-Phase Global Offer Management for Schneider Electric.
The new Galaxy VL will help in cutting costs as it enables you to pay as you grow by reducing the CapEx investment, operating costs and energy consumption. The 99 percent ECOnversion mode will help in reaching the sustainability goals.
