By Renée Francoeur
January 30, 2015 – Schneider Electric is expanding its single-phase Smart-UPS On-Line uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) with the inclusion of new 5–10kVA models.
“Our new unity power factor Smart-UPS On-Line models provide simple, convenient, flexible, and reliable power back up, allowing users to feel assured their important equipment and electronics will be protected when they need it most,” said Michael Maiello, senior vice-president of home and business networks, APC by Schneider Electric.
The 5kVA UPS units have a power factor of 0.9, while the 6–10kVA units feature unity power factor capability, said Schneider.
The Smart-UPS On-Line utilizes built-in automatic bypass to ensure power to the load even in the event of a failure and double conversion online capability also provides tight voltage and frequency regulation and zero transfer time for reactive loads such as machinery, said the company.
New models are also Energy Star qualified and are operable in a high efficiency “green” mode that can reach 97 percent efficiency.
