Schneider Electric has released the Galaxy VM, a new three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that employs the latest energy efficiency technology and fully integrates with Schneider Electric energy management solutions. The Galaxy VM UPS is designed to reduce energy costs through its innovative 99% efficiency ECOnversion™ mode, which comes with input harmonic correction while combining the advantages of double conversion on-line and advanced ECO mode technologies to operate at the greatest efficiency without putting data center loads at risk. This is particularly important as data center operators and managers must balance the need for optimal energy efficiency with maximum uptime and availability.
Additionally, the Galaxy VM offers flexible energy storage solutions with swappable modular battery modules and fans that can be replaced without the need to go to maintenance bypass, thus increasing availability and load protection. Designed to integrate into existing electrical, physical, and monitoring environments, Galaxy VM works with Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare™ data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software applications, building management systems, (BMS), and Modbus protocol.
