Stacking limitations for single phase Symmetra and Matrix products

What stacking options are available with the single phase Symmetra and Matrix family of products?

Product Line:
Symmetra and Matrix UPS

All serial ranges

Symmetra LX products in tower form factor were designed with the capability to stack them to achieve a smaller footprint.


When stacking Symmetra LX products, please follow these guidelines:

- One (1) SYBFXR9 can be stacked either above or below a 8kVA or 16kVA Symmetra LX chassis using the attached instructions.

- Two (2) SYBFXR9 can be stacked together using the attached instructions.

Although instructions are provided for these stacking options, APC always recommends the use of its field service group to complete these procedures.

Please Note: APC offers Symmetra LX Tower systems with integrated XR battery cabinets (ex. SYA16K16PXR) which require no assembly. If possible, please consider this option before purchasing the Symmetra LX UPS.
