Galaxy 300 UPS provides reliable power for mission critical applications

Online PR News – 10-June-2011 – – London, United Kingdom, June 7th 2011 – APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, today announced the launch of the MGE Galaxy 300 UPS system.

The Galaxy 300 provides a simplified and reliable solution for protecting small and medium businesses, commercial buildings and technical facilities. It offers reliable power protection and a robust and easy to install system at the best price to performance ratio.

Galaxy 300 is a 3-phase UPS product that is fully RoHS (Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances) compliant. The power efficiency rates up to 93%, some 5% higher than other UPS systems with similar features. This efficiency provides lower operational and cooling costs over the medium and long-term.

The UPS system uses a double conversion online topology which provides a regulated and reliable power supply. The Galaxy 300 offers up to 30 minutes of integrated battery back-up, internal mechanical bypass to provide higher levels of power availability.
These features, combined with the compact design and easy installation meet all the key requirements of customers looking for a 3-phase UPS in the 10-40kVA power range.

“Feedback from our channel partners and core customers shows that power availability, reliability, manageability and convenience are the key issues that UPS systems need to address for low and medium level power users,” explains Paul Tyrer, Vice President UK Ireland & Nordics, APC. “The new Galaxy 300 system has been designed with these requirements firmly in mind to deliver a UPS which is easy to install and operate, at an affordable price point. It is ideal for end users who are purchasing a 3-phase UPS for the first time.”

Users are able to monitor and manage power requirements locally and remotely through a simple web/SNMP interface and a user-friendly display available in 18 languages.
For convenient power distribution, both three to three and three to single phase power configurations are available. Servicing of the Galaxy 300 is greatly enhanced by allowing front panel access for ease of maintenance in confined spaces.

Available from the electrical distribution network, the Galaxy 300 provides electricians with an easy-to-install UPS available from the same distributor as their usual electrical products, with similar delivery times.

All these features, combined with the start up and on–site warranty service, makes the Galaxy 300 the easiest UPS in its class to install, manage and maintain.
Like every UPS from APC by Schneider-Electric, the MGE Galaxy 300 benefits from the association of a strong brand and the support of a world-class international services organisation.

The new APC MGE Galaxy 300 model includes a 1 year physical warranty with extended warranty options. The MGE Galaxy 300 system is available in the UK and Ireland. For more details, visit www.apc.com/gb or call APC by Schneider Electric on 0800 2799254.
