SCHNEIDER Electric, a global specialist in the digital transformation of energy management, automation and power protection, introduced the latest APC by Schneider Electric Easy UPS 1 Ph On-Line and UPS 3 series to the local market.
The Easy UPS line is a new category of UPSs designed for essential power protection needs even in the most unstable power conditions.
With greater digitisation among SMEs, business continuity is increasingly dependent on regulating power outages, surges and spikes. Such power incidents can impact anything from customer service to critical business processes.
Many small companies are unprepared for business disruptions caused by power blackouts, and are often unaware of the actual costs and impact that they can have on their operations. The financial impact of even a small power cut can be catastrophic.
“Efforts should be put in place to safe-guard power resources and minimise the occurrences of power disruptions that can result in financial implications to businesses. The impact on the economy can be enormous especially when the demand for energy consumption continues to grow year-on-year,” said Astri R Dharmawan, IT division vice president for Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei, Schneider Electric IT.
The Easy UPS line addresses a market need for a solution that offers best-in-class power availability, reliability, manageability, quality, and convenience for even home users, SMEs, data centres, and manufacturing facilities.
“We’ve expanded our UPS portfolio to offer SMEs a high quality, cost-competitive alternative for power protection for the most unstable and unpredictable power conditions,” she added.
The Easy UPS 3S is a combination of an optimised footprint design and advanced product features, protecting critical equipment in many environments from damage due to power outages, surges and spikes.
This unit delivers up to 96% efficiency in double conversion mode and up to 99% efficiency in energy-saving ECO Mode, taking the industry standards for the 10-to-40kVA UPS to a new level.
Meanwhile, Easy UPS 1 Ph On-Line for home users as well as small to medium businesses. Easy UPS 1 Ph On-Line provides essential power protection for unstable power conditions, ensuring consistent and reliable connectivity at the most critical moments.
