MGE Galaxy range results in reduced downtime

APC by Schneider Electric has launched the MGE Galaxy 3500, a three-phase general purpose uninterruptible power supply (UPS). With an optimised footprint in a sturdy enclosure, the MGE Galaxy 3500 is suitable for a wide range of applications in the 10 – 40kVA segment – from small data centres and electrical rooms up to highly demanding industrial environments.

Relying on hot-swappable batteries, the new MGE Galaxy 3500 results in reduced downtime and increased runtime scalability for IT and electrical room environments. The double conversion on-line topology, critical for process control, industrial, electrical room and automation control applications, delivers zero transfer time and consistent regulation, while the parallel capability – up to four units – for either capacity or redundancy delivers flexibility of evolution.

Particularly well adapted to demanding industrial environments, the MGE Galaxy 3500’s heavy duty design of reinforced steel plates – 2mm front steel plate and NEMA 12/IP51 top plate – protects the UPS against hard handling, dirt and dripping liquids. In addition, it features easily replaceable air filters that prevent dust and debris from affecting performance. The MGE Galaxy 3500 also offers best in-class efficiency, up to 96 percent, for reduced cost of ownership.

“The MGE Galaxy 3500 provides high-performance power protection and is the most efficient general-purpose UPS for electrical rooms and small data centres,” says Rodney Callaghan, MD: Southern Africa at APC by Schneider Electric. “It offers the reliability and robustness that you expect from the MGE Galaxy product line with increased efficiency and modularity.”
