UPS with integration, graphic display
The MGE EPS8000 UPS from APC by Schneider Electric has been upgraded with a touch screen and integrated parallel feature.
APC by Schneider Electric upgraded its MGE EPS8000 uninterrupted power supply (UPS) product family to include a new Integrated Parallel feature, allowing customers to easily configure 3+1UPS models without a centralized static switch cabinet. Additionally, the upgrade incorporates a new, touch screen-capable 12 in. graphical display, enhancing the product’s flexibility and usability. Each MGE EPS8000 Integrated Parallel module comes equipped with local paralleling boards that communicate with each other to create a completely synchronized output voltage. UPS controls reside in each MGE EPS8000 Integrated Parallel module, rather than in a centralized location or switchgear. When one module is removed from the parallel bus for service or an internal failure, this unique feature enables the remaining UPS modules to immediately accept the load of the failed UPS module. By enabling one module to be removed without requiring the critical load to be connected to straight utility, this feature mitigates system downtime and improves efficiency.
