PresentationHighly efficient, easy-to-deploy 40kW, 400V 3-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that brings best-in-class power protection to edge, small and medium data centers, as well as to critical infrastructure in commercial and industrial applications. Compact design, high-density technology and modular architecture keep total cost of ownership low and operational efficiency at the highest levels. Galaxy VS reduces your energy losses by up to 66% with the patented ECOnversion mode – reaching up to 99% efficiency levels and delivering more energy savings than even our industry-leading 97% efficiency in normal operating mode. The UPS is EcoStruxure-ready to give you peace of mind with cloud-based remote monitoring and management via your smartphone. Includes 5x8 start-up service. For battery runtime details, see the runtime charts published under the Documents tab.
