Power and cooling solutions provider APC by Schneider Electric has launched a new integrated uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for small and medium businesses (SMBs) in Malaysia offering a power efficiency of 93 percent, said the company.
"We live in a country that receives the second highest number of lightning strikes in the world with Kuala Lumpur receiving 48.3 lightning strikes to the ground every square kilometre of real estate," said APC by Schneider Electric vice president, Malaysia, John Atherton.
"Power outages can leave delicate IT systems vulnerable to damage and data loss, which businesses cannot afford," said Atherton. "With the MGE UPS Galaxy 300, businesses will have peace of mind knowing that they will be able to conduct their businesses with 24x7x365 availability with a much lower cost compared to other UPS systems."
"The new MGE Galaxy 300 UPS system provides a simplified and reliable solution for protecting small and medium businesses, commercial buildings and technical facilities through its 'Secure Power Systems'," he said.
"It offers reliable power protection and a robust and easy to install system at the best price to performance ratio," said Atherton. "The Galaxy 300 fully implements the RoHS (Restriction of the use of Hazardous Substances). The power efficiency level for the UPS system is 93 percent, which is five percent higher than other UPS systems with similar features. This provides higher operational efficiencies and lower cooling costs. With the new product, users are able to monitor and manage power requirements locally and remotely through a simple Web/SNMP [Simple Network Management Protocol] interface and a user-friendly display available in 18 languages."
"Feedback from our channel partners and core customers show that power availability, reliability, manageability and convenience are the key issues that UPS systems need to address for low and medium level power users," he said.
"The new Galaxy 300 system has been designed with these requirements firmly in mind to deliver a UPS that is easy to install and operate, but at an affordable price point. It is particularly ideal for end-users who are purchasing a three-phase UPS for the first time," said Atherton, adding that the device also offered up to 30 minutes of battery back-up, an integrated internal mechanical bypass to provide a level of power availability.
