APC adds heavy-duty UPS for data centers

February 10, 2009--APC by Schneider Electric's MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 1000/1100kVA uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is designed for environments such as data centers and computer rooms, as well as industrial, medical imaging, factory floor and electrical room applications.

February 10, 2009--APC by Schneider Electric's MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 1000/1100kVA uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is designed for environments such as data centers and computer rooms, as well as industrial, medical imaging, factory floor and electrical room applications. It offers paralleling capability, with an external static switch to enable scalability for increased capacity or redundancy. These new high power solutions are designed to boost capacity from 1000kVA up to 3300kVA.

The on-line, three-phase MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 offers scalable power protection using proprietary technology to protect all critical loads. Single module systems are available with 1000kVA to 1100kVA power ratings, and 100 percent rated continuous duty bypass and output static switches. Relying on advanced 12 pulse rectifier and inverter technologies to restrict total harmonic distortion to less than 5 percent, the MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 is built to provide reliable power in the harshest of electrical environments with its integrated galvanic copper isolation transformer.

A 100 percent step-load capability is designed to ensure a fast response to load changes with accurate voltage regulation. In addition, the MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 incorporates fault tolerant circuitry that protects the UPS from accidental short circuits typically caused by load side failures or overloads.

The UPS incorporates four communication slots in a rack-mount, multi-slot case to support SNMP, J-Bus/ModBus and RS232-RS485 protocols. With the available Solution-Pac power management software, the MGE EPS8000 can monitor, control and shut down multiple servers over a network, while free MGE UPS Web-Pac software enables remote monitoring via the Internet.

The MGE Galaxy EPS 8000 is UL-1778 and cUL (Canada) listed.
