Key Features

Run time for load
Run time for load
Enter the total load (power draw) of all devices to be protected by the UPS here. Based on the value entered we will estimate the run time that you will have during a total power outage. Adding run time increases availability by allowing the system to operate through longer outages without shutting down.

The total load (power draw) entered exceeds the maximum value for this product (40000 W)

Please enter load to see estimated run time

The total load (power draw) entered is less than the minimum value for this product ({} W)

Galaxy VS UPS 40kW 208V for External Batteries, Start-up 5x8
Highly efficient, easy-to-deploy 40kW, 208V 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.

Multiple levels of service offers
With the option of packages or individual service components, our services are structured to allow you to pick and choose what you would like Schneider Electric to do for you.

Total cost of Ownership

Wide input voltage range
Designed for harsh electrical environments to save battery life.
Robust operation
No power derating in kW up to 40°C or 104°F.
Input power factor correction
Minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.
High efficiency in double conversion mode
Consistently high power quality at high efficiency, even at low load levels. Any disturbances on the distribution waveform are regenerated via the zero transfer time AC to DC then DC to AC conversion process. The battery is only used as a back-up source.
ECOnversion mode
Operating mode that ensures ultra high efficiency while charging the batteries, conditioning the load power factor and ensuring a Class 1 output voltage regulation.
Compatible with Galaxy Lithium-ion Battery Cabinets
Reduces system footprint and weight, cooling and maintenance requirements, and total cost of ownership; offers double the life of VRLA batteries; and improves backup storage predictability and manageability. Galaxy VS UPSs for external batteries are compatible with Galaxy Lithium-ion Battery Cabinets.
Compact UPS
High-density technology and full front access make this UPS a footprint saver well suited for confined spaces.


Parallel-redundant capability
Powers the connected equipment with multiple uninterruptible power supplies and redundant fan design to increase system redundancy.
Parallel-capacity capability
Increases total power capacity by using multiple uninterruptible power supplies simultaneously.
Flexible DC bus
Optimizes battery sizing and supports a wide range of energy storage technologies, including VRLA, Li-ion, and NiCd batteries.
Embedded Network Management Card
Allows you to remotely manage alert thresholds and monitor your UPS over EcoStruxure IT, Web, SNMP, or Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU.
Built-in backfeed protection
Full built-in backfeed contactor ensures that no electricity is sent back to the grid.
