APC LAUNCHES GALAXY 300 UPS SYSTEM
The product, according the company provides a simplified and reliable solution for protecting small and medium businesses, commercial buildings and technical facilities.
According to APC, the new product if deployed offers reliable power protection and a robust and easy to install system at the best price to performance ratio.
'Galaxy 300 is a three-phase UPS product that is fully RoHS (Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances) compliant. The power efficiency rates up to 93 percent, some five percent higher than other UPS systems with similar features. This efficiency provides lower operational and cooling costs over the medium and long-term.
'The UPS system uses a double conversion online topology, which provides a regulated and reliable power supply. The Galaxy 300 offers up to 30 minutes of integrated battery back-up, internal mechanical bypass to provide higher levels of power availability.
'These features, combined with the compact design and easy installation, meet all the key requirements of customers looking for a three-phase UPS in the 10-40kVA power range' the company explained in a statement.
Feedback from the company's channel partners and core customers, according to Jonathan Duncan, director for the Central and North East Africa region at APC by Schneider Electric showed that power availability, reliability, manageability and convenience are the key issues that UPS systems need to address for low and medium level power users,' explains.
'The new Galaxy 300 system has been designed with these requirements firmly in mind to deliver a UPS that is straightforward to install and operate, at an affordable price point. It is ideal for end users who are purchasing a three-phase UPS for the first time.' he added.
Users, he said, are able to monitor and manage power requirements locally and remotely through a simple web/SNMP interface and a user-friendly display available in 18 languages.
Available from the electrical distribution network, the Galaxy 300, according to him provides electricians with an easy-to-install UPS available from the same distributor as their usual electrical products, with similar delivery times.
Like every UPS from APC by Schneider-Electric, the Galaxy 300, he said benefits from the association of a strong brand and the support of a world-class international services organisation.
