MGE introduces 3-Phase UPS into market

MGE has introduced its three-phase Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) into the nation’s market, saying it’s in a class of its own.

African Regional Director for Critical Power and Cooling Services Business unit at Schneider Electric, Mr. Carl Kleynhans, while disclosing this said that with the introduction of the MGE Galaxy 9000, the critical power and cooling services business unit of Schneider Electric now offers the most efficient three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) in its class.

The new system, he said, has the highest power footprint ratio in its class of 200W / m2 to overcome increasing space constraints in the data centre sector.

“It also features easy installation and a true front access design,” he said.

Kleynhans explained that Galaxy 9000 has a 95 per cent efficiency rating, which also is the highest in its class and ensures high efficiency thereby reducing operating expenses at a 720kW load, a 1 per cent increase in efficiency equates to 52MWh savings per year.

“The UPS is therefore equally appropriate to users with an interest in “greening” their infrastructure as well as the cost conscious,” he said.

He further explained that the latest UPS is ideal for Tier IV data centres and ultra sensitive high power applications, thanks to its very low voltage distortion rate and great output stability even during load transients.

“The Galaxy 9000 ensures a resilient and high quality power supply to keep loads running optimally 24 hours a day,” he said.

Stressing that as the data centre becomes more populated, the Galaxy 9000 enables a power uplift without disrupting continuity of services.

“Upgrading the system is simplified by its flexible, modular architecture, and the Galaxy 9000 provides two modes of redundant power distribution – up to four modular units running in parallel or a centralised static transfer switch,” he said.

Kleynhans said the robust design of Galaxy 9000 also makes the system ideally suited to even the harshest operating conditions.

“The new UPS features high reliability batteries, with continuous monitoring for full battery life management and failure prediction,” he said.

As said by him, Galaxy 9000 is fully compatible with remote management tools and so could be easily monitored and controlled from anywhere on the network,” he said, adding “In addition to Ethernet, it is also compatible with other communications protocols including J-Bus/ Mod-Bus and relay contacts. A high definition colour touch screen with intuitive information makes local management effortless.”
