Panel Builder System Integrator

January 12, 2021

Schneider Electric recently announced that Galaxy VS 3-phase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for external batteries now extends from 20-150 kW(480V)and 10-75 kW (208V). With the expanded power range, Galaxy VS—a highly efficient, modular, easy-to-deploy 3-phase UPS—now offers protection to a broader range of critical infrastructure and edge applications.

New options include N+1 internal redundancy, an IP52/NEMA12 kit for reinforced protection, and TAA (Trade Agreements Act) compliant models. By using the N+1 models,in which one extra power module is used for redundancy, customers ensure the load remains protected even in case of an inoperable power module. This multiplies by 10 the system’s availability with no extra footprint.

Galaxy VS is EcoStruxure connected to give you peace of mind anytime, anywhere. It addresses the unique requirements of edge computing and data centers where space and access are at a premium. Up to 99 per cent efficient and with optional Lithium-ion batteries, doubling battery life, the Galaxy VS total cost of ownership (TCO) is unmatched in the industry.

“With the growing demand for higher levels of power, efficiency, and redundancy, the Galaxy VS and its expanded power range better meet customer requirements for critical infrastructure and edge applications,” said Mustafa Demirkol, Global VP, 3-Phase UPS Offer Management & Marketing, Schneider Electric. “Galaxy VS’s compact, fault tolerant, and modular design allows it to deploy faster and provide redundancy in a smaller space than traditional UPSs, saving users time, energy, and money.”

Galaxy VS benefits include:

  •    -   Cost savings: Provides up to 99per cent efficiency, saves over 60 per cent of the UPS electricity consumption, and keeps the load fully protected when operated in patented ECOnversion mode. By using ECOnversion, customers recover their UPS investment within two to three years through energy savings (model dependent).
  •    -   Footprint savings: Compact design provides high-density technology especially suited to confined spaces with full front access for easy and fast connection and services.
  •    -   Longer life energy storage: Lithium-ion battery technology options restore backup time quickly, protect your load even during repeated power interruptions, and provide longer life than traditional battery solutions.
  •    -   Increased uptime and simplified maintenance: Critical system components are built as modules with a fault-tolerant design. This provides internal redundancy at reduced load levels and a shorter mean time to repair.
  •    -   EcoStruxure connected:
    •       -   Makes it easy to manage with global visibility of equipment performance and status supported with a 24x7 expert service bureau. Site managers or technical personnel can remotely monitor their Galaxy VS system status anytime, anywhere with the smartphone app.
    •       -   Enables easy monitoring and management with EcoStruxure IT’s cloud-based software suite when you buy the optional network card. For more information, visit https://ecostruxureit.com/what-is-ecostruxure-it/and try EcoStruxure IT Expert monitoring solution for free for 30 day.


This Galaxy VSexpansion with new 60 and 75 kW (208V) and 120 and 150 kW (480V) UPSs for external batteries is now available in the US, Central America, and Canada through Schneider Electric and its partners. All Galaxy VS UPSs are available with Start-up service included to guaranteed optimize system performance, quality, and safety.

SmartROC D65 – Key to Kaunis Iron

SmartROC D65Just two years after Kaunis Iron started production of iron ore in Kaunisvaara, the company is planning a new open pit mine. An important part of that plan is SmartROC D65 rigs – and an arrangement where the rigs are regularly serviced on site by Epiroc personnel.

The November sky is clear in Kaunisvaara, and the morning sun has lit up the north side of the mine. Half-way down into the mine, two SmartROC D65 drill rigs are working, and in front of them are two rows with sticks. They have been stuck into the ground, each in its own drill hole with yellow plastic tubing, which makes the hole easier to load.

Planning a New Automation Project? Make Sure You Budget for Training and Development

 

JAEBy Eric Martin, C.E.T., JAE Automation

Conversations about automation technology and design often focus on one thing – the technology itself. We think of the high-tech robots, the automated conveyors, or the precision welding machines that make it possible for factories to operate more efficiently, productively, and safely.

However, any discussions around automation technology need to include the most important element – the people.
