Emerson launches Liebert GXT3 on-line UPS 5-10kVA models
The latest Liebert UPS models are available now in North America.
Columbus, Ohio -- Emerson Network Power has launched the Liebert GXT3 UPS in 5 – 10kVA models. The on-line, double conversion UPS packs higher power capacities into a smaller space while maintaining best-in-class availability. The new product is billed as providing data center managers with higher density power protection in response to a higher demand on system availability and reliability.
The Liebert GXT3 can be installed in a rack or tower configuration, with a rotating LED display panel that adjusts accordingly. The UPS features replaceable, hot-swappable internal batteries that provide four or more minutes of runtime at full load, with higher backup time available at typical loading conditions. The 5kVA and 6kVA models require only 4U of space, while the 8kVA and 10kVA models require 6U of space. Optional battery cabinets, adding just 2U to 4U of rack space, provide additional runtime via the plug-and-play connections on the rear panel of the UPS.
“The implementation of new technologies has led to an even higher demand on system availability and reliability, creating a need for higher density power protection systems,” said Charles O’Donnell, vice president of engineering for the Liebert AC Power business of Emerson Network Power in North America. “Particularly in smaller data centers or network closets, space is at a premium. The Liebert GXT3 optimizes space with an extremely small cabinet for the provided kVA. The high output power factors of .8 for 5-6kVA models and .9 for 8-10kVA, as well as a wide voltage window, support the critical load and extend system availability.”
Using the Liebert IntelliSlot Web Card, the Liebert GXT3 provides simple network management protocol (SNMP) for ongoing Web-based monitoring and control of the system. A Windows-based configuration program allows operating parameters to be adjusted and tests to be scheduled, and built-in USB communications for use with Liebert MultiLink enable the customer to monitor UPS and server communications and ensure proper, unattended shutdown. Built-in closure signals provide automatic notification of operating systems such as low battery or battery mode shutdown.
