APC's new Smart-UPS RT 3kVA UPS

APC, a global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, today introduced its Smart-UPS RT 3 kVA (SURT3000XLI-ET), 5kVA (SURTD5000XLI-ET) & 6kVa (SURT6000XLI-ET) power protection UPS models, engineered for the electro technical environment. These very versatile double conversion online UPS expands APC's award-winning Smart-UPS On-Line product line, offering key features for electrical installations, such as facilities for hardwire input and output termination. Good voltage and frequency regulation with no break voltage in the transition to and from battery power makes of the new Smart-UPS RT Units the ideal products to support motors and linear power supplies, which are less tolerant to these issues.

The new UPS units ensure availability, manageability and adaptability for any installation need and the double conversion on-line topology provides a no-break supply; uptime whilst additional runtime with uninterrupted power load is available thanks to the hot swappable, plug-and-play batteries; manual and automatic internal bypasses ensures power to loads if any UPS failure occurs. Up to 10 battery packs can be attached to the unit, providing considerable extended runtimes.

Manageability is ensured thanks to the serial interface and connection cable provided for local configuration and diagnostics via a connected PC; a SmartSlot is provided to allow the use of a range of APC Management cards, including I/O Relay alarms, Building Management Integration and Network Management Cards.

The units are easily adaptable to any space thanks to their tower configuration and the optional rack mounting rail kit; output voltage and frequency tracking tolerance can be adjusted to meet various power environments; ease of installation and flexibility are assured as both the input and output connections of the units offer hardwire terminations.

“Building Infrastructures and Facilities environment face challenges that may differ from the traditional IT power needs. With the introduction of these Smart-UPS models specifically engineered for Electro Technical applications, APC ensures the best features to its award-winning Smart-UPS product line and meets electrical installers requirements. We expect the installers to find in these products’ availability, manageability and flexibility the answer to their customers’ changing needs” said Michael Niotakis, Vice President Channels & Home & Business Networks Business Development, EMEA/LAM at APC by Schneider Electric.
