Emerson Network Power Unveils New Compact UPS System for Reliable Protection of Essential and Critical Applications
Columbus, Ohio - As data center managers struggle to balance organizational pressure to deliver both efficiency and availability, Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity(TM), has introduced the Liebert GXT3, a true on-line uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that protects IT equipment from virtually all power disturbances due to blackouts, brownouts, sags, surges or noise interference. The product is available globally.
Configurable as a tower or rack-mount model, the compact Liebert GXT3 UPS delivers continuous, high-quality AC power to connected equipment with no break when transferring to battery. It is available in 120V and 230V systems and in models from 500 VA to 3000 VA of capacity and battery backup in just 2U of rack space. Matching external battery cabinets in 2U height are also offered to achieve additional backup time.
"As businesses rely more and more on IT systems to support business-critical applications and initiatives such as virtualization and VoIP, reliable UPS performance is the key to increasing availability, reducing downtime risks, and enabling future growth," said Charles O'Donnell, vice president, engineering, for the Liebert AC Power business of Emerson Network Power. "The unit's rated output power factor of 0.9 is a better match with switching-mode power supplies used in today's IT equipment. A higher output power factor allows for more efficient utilization of the UPS."
The Liebert GXT3 is designed to automatically detect input frequency of 60 or 50 Hz. It features hot-swappable, user-replaceable internal batteries that provide four to eight minutes of battery backup time at full load. Up to six battery-backed outlets allow more equipment to be connected to the UPS. The unit also includes an LED display panel that rotates 90° to make the readout of the LED display easy to see in rack or tower position. The UPS supports Liebert IntelliSlot® Web Cards for network communications.
Liebert GXT3 is backed by the industry's best warranty. A two-year, no-hassle replacement warranty pays for shipping for both the original and replacement unit in the event of UPS problems.
