The modular 10- to 100-kW three-phase UPS is designed to meet the power requirements of information technology (IT), commercial and industrial facilities. Using Schneider’s EcoStruxure platform, site managers can remotely monitor their Galaxy VS peformance status via smartphone app, supported by a 24-7 service bureau.
“With its compact, modular design, the Galaxy VS can deploy faster and in a smaller space than traditional UPSs, saving users time and money,” says Christopher Thompson, vice-president (VP) of Schneider’s three-phase line of business.
The company promises up to 99% efficiency in ECOnversion mode and 97% in double conversion mode. Optional lithium-ion batteries can provide longer energy storage.
