Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, have introduced the Vertiv Liebert GXE, an online double-conversion single-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) available in six and ten kVA power ratings in tower or rackmount configuration.
The system is designed to provide reliable power to distributed IT networks and edge computing applications in various industry segments such as enterprise, government, manufacturing, finance, education and retail.
The Liebert GXE reportedly performs with high efficiency up to 94 per cent in online mode and up to 98 per cent in ECO mode, driving energy and operational costs savings compared to other models available on the market. The high output power factor of 1.0 enables continuous and reliable power to more connected devices, protecting them against many disturbances in the AC mains with the online double conversion technology and the input surge protection. The flexible rackmount or tower form factor, with rackmount kits included as a standard, facilitates stock management for distribution in the IT channel and simplifies installation to accommodate various micro data centre and edge computing needs.
The unit’s runtime can be extended with up to four external battery cabinets for longer back-up protection, and the hot-swappable VRLA batteries can be easily replaced by users without the assistance of skilled personnel and without shutdown of the loads for smoother operations and minimised maintenance costs. Additionally, the Liebert GXE has an integrated four Amps charger providing quick battery recharge up to 90 per cent in just three hours that can be critical in case of frequent mains failures, and an integrated battery management system to optimise battery life and recycling.
The Vertiv Liebert GXE includes a user-friendly LCD colour display that makes it easy and intuitive to use. The unit offers remote monitoring capabilities for quick and easy access to IT infrastructure, through the optional Vertiv Liebert Intellislot Unity Communications card and a free download of Vertiv Power Insight software.
“IT channel distributors and resellers are constantly looking for efficient and cost-effective solutions to protect small and micro IT sites against power outages,” said Andrea Ferro, vice president channel, IT & edge applications for Vertiv in EMEA. “This latest addition to our IT channel portfolio provides all the key features and performance capabilities needed in an online double conversion UPS for an affordable price, which allows small and medium businesses of all industries to leverage the latest technologies and accelerate their digital transformation journey.”
