Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, has unveiled the latest addition to its uninterruptable power source (UPS) portfolio, a new product called the Liebert EXS UPS.
Vertiv billed the new offering as an “extremely compact, monolithic, transformer-free UPS with the smallest footprint in its class.”
It said the Liebert EXS UPS delivered very high density and maximum active power of up to 40 degrees Celsius. “Its double conversion efficiency of up to 96.2 percent also significantly reduces energy cost, impact on the environment and overall total cost of ownership,” the firm added.
Available initially in the range of 10-20 kVA across Asia, including Australia and New Zealand, the Liebert EXS can house up to four battery strings, eliminating the need for external battery housing which reduces overall installation cost and floorspace. “This allows the Liebert EXS to deliver exceptional features to both IT applications and other mission critical applications, such as transportation, emergency lighting, healthcare, retail and government facilities,” Vertiv said.
“We are continuously developing new products and technologies to ensure that we are offering the best solutions for our customers. Limited floor space and high operating costs are constant business pressures, which is why the Liebert EXS has been designed to deliver standardisation and optimal performances for customers who want to optimise TCO and floor space,” said Chee Hoe Ling, vice president for products, solution and marketing at Vertiv in Asia.
Like all Vertiv UPS systems, the Liebert EXS can be complemented with Vertiv LIFE Services, a sophisticated remote diagnostic and preventive service which provides early detection of UPS conditions, allowing effective proactive maintenance, fast incident response and remote trouble shooting 24/7, to increase mission critical application availability to the customers. The Liebert EXS is also compatible with the Trellis Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) platform, which enables real-time, unified optimisation of data centre and facilities infrastructure.
“Businesses today require more than just the basic level of power protection. With growing focus on optimising infrastructure at the edges of the network, having a flexible, agile and efficient UPS solution is critical. The new Liebert EXS addresses this with its innovative design and powerful features, giving the best power protection in the market today,” said Arunangshu Chattopadhyay, director of power product marketing at Vertiv in Asia.
