Vertiv launches new UPS solution for Asia & A/NZ markets

07 Aug 2018

Vertiv has bumped up its uninterruptable power supply (UPS) portfolio with a new addition to the family: The Liebert EXS.

The Liebert EXS is designed to be a UPS that is compact, monolithic, and transformer-free that delivers a small footprint.

It also delivers maximum active power of up to 40 degrees Celsius, and features conversion efficiency of up to 96.2% to reduce energy costs, environmental impact, and overall total cost of ownership.

“We are continuously developing new products and technologies to ensure that we are offering the best solutions for our customers,” comments Vertiv Asia vice presidents for products, solutions, and marketing, Chee Hoe Ling.

“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.”

Vertiv has released the Liebert EXS initially as a 10-20 kVA offering for the Asia, Australia, and New Zealand markets.

The company says the Liebert EXS offers up to 50 per cent space reduction compared to its competition.

“With its optimised battery configuration, it 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.”

“Businesses today require more than just the basic level of power protection,” adds Vertiv Asia director of power product marketing, Arunangshu Chattopadhyay.

“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.”

Vertiv says its 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 troubleshooting 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.
