Schneider Electric launched its Galaxy VL 200-500 kW (400V/480V) three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS), the newest addition to the Galaxy family.
The UPS offers up to 99 per cent efficiency in ECOnversion mode for a full return on investment within two years (model dependent) for medium and large data centres, and commercial and industrial facilities.
Galaxy VL is half the size of the industry average at .8 m2. Its architecture enables data centre professionals to scale power incrementally, from 200 kilowatt to 500 kW with 50 kW power modules.
Features include live swap; which delivers a touch-safe design throughout the process of adding or replacing the power modules while the UPS is online and fully operational. Galaxy lithium-ion battery cabinets deliver space savings of up to 70 per cent compared with VRLA battery solutions.
“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,” said Mustafa Demirkol, VP, Three-Phase Global Offer Management, Schneider Electric. “It is in keeping of our focus on the future requirements for data centers 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.”
