Manila, Philippines – To address the growing need of critical infrastructure and facilities for reliable and continuous power supply, Schneider Electric has introduced the first version of the Galaxy VS three-phase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) with internal smart battery modules.
Schneider Electric is the world’s leading provider of digital solutions in energy management and automation. The Galaxy VS is one among its many solutions that ensure critical loads are always protected with highly predictable runtimes and battery redundancy.
The design of the Galaxy VS is highly efficient, modular, and easy to deploy. Galaxy VS’s design meets the critical power requirements of IT, commercial, and other industrial facilities.
Energy is an important consideration of businesses in locating their facilities, with key business and investment decisions resting on power capacity and stability.
“Apart from power supply, managers of critical facilities also consider cost efficiency, security, and consistency,” said Schneider Electric Vice President for Secure Power Business Tony Kang.
“Galaxy VS’s internal smart battery modules improve availability with added battery flexibility and monitoring, redundant battery strings, and self-configuration. It has a compact footprint optimized by integrating batteries in the UPS cabinet, making it ideal for the unique requirements of edge computing and critical infrastructure.”
All these highlight the Galaxy VS’s all-in-one feature, making it faster and simpler to configure, install, and deploy, as well as more cost competitive.
Through Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™, a network of products and services that document real- time performance and status of its interaction, data and analytics are made available for users captured through the usage and performance of the Galaxy VS.
On the other hand, Green Premium™, a label that details the environment-friendly features of Schneider Electric solutions, shows that the Galaxy VS has functions that make it more sustainable from its installment to disposal.
When operated in Schneider Electric’s patented ECOnversion mode, Galaxy VS provides 99% efficiency, allowing investment to be recovered in cost savings within two to three years (model-dependent).
Critical system components are built as modules for faster serviceability and fault tolerance, providing internal redundancy at reduced load levels and shorter interval between down time and up time. Its compact design and full front access results in footprint savings and simplified maintenance, making it ideal for confined spaces.
Start-up service is also offered to guaranteed optimize system performance, quality, and safety.
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) configurations. It was first introduced in April this year for external batteries supporting 20-100 kW (400V/480V) and 10-50 kW (208V).
The Galaxy VS, available globally except for Greater China and Japan, is fully manufactured at Schneider Electric’s Smart Factory in Cavite.
