Schneider Electric launches two new UPS solutions for IOT and edge computing applications

SE APC Lithium Ion 4 17 187612Schneider Electric has announced the availability of two new categories of UPSs from APC by Schneider Electric

The first is Smart-UPS Lithium-ion, which offers power protection to ensure network and data availability. Designed for local edge environments and micro data centers, the Smart-UPS with Lithium-ion is capable of ensuring consistent and reliable connectivity at the most critical moments. Increased UPS battery life, lower maintenance service costs, and fewer onsite visits provide up to a 50 per cent lower total cost of ownership over 10 years.

Benefits of Smart-UPS Lithium-ion include:

• Smaller size and weight: Due to higher energy densities, Li-Ion batteries have a much smaller footprint and weigh about 30 per cent less than sealed lead acid batteries.

• Lower maintenance and total cost of ownership: With double the battery life, the amount of maintenance and associated costs required over the life of the UPS is reduced by up to 53 per cent.

• Extended runtime: Smart UPS On Line can be configured with multiple Li-Ion battery packs to meet aggressive runtime demands based on IT and business needs.

• Remote management capabilities: Available with a preinstalled Network Management Card (NMC) option, this solution can enhance visibility of edge environments with monitoring and control capabilities.

The second UPS launch is for the APC Easy UPS 1 Ph Online, which is developed to handle a wide voltage range and inconsistent power conditions.

The APC Easy UPS 1 Ph Online is capable of protecting critical equipment and connected loads from unpredictable power disturbances such as spikes, surges, blackouts, and brownouts, providing assurance, reliability and certainty.

Features of the Easy UPS 1 Ph Online include:

• Wide input voltage range protects against high fluctuations in power

• Generates clean power via double conversion online technology

• Recharges quickly (90 per cent capacity in four hours) to protect against frequent outages

• Intuitive LCD/LED interface provides UPS status for fast diagnostics

• EcoMode provides increased unit efficiency
