Scalable 200 to 500 kVA/kW 3-phase UPS

Highly efficient, scalable 200 to 500 kVA/kW 3-phase UPS featuring modular, redundant design and low TCO for medium and large data centers and mission critical environments.

Galaxy VL is a highly efficient, compact, modular, and scalable 200-500 kW (400 V/480 V) three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) available worldwide that delivers top performance for medium, large, and edge data centers, as well as critical infrastructure in commercial and industrial facilities.

Its industry-leading, compact, high-density technology, and fault-tolerant architecture maximize availability, operational efficiency, and critical load protection while minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO). Thanks to patented technologies, this UPS delivers up to 99% efficiency in ECOnversion™ mode and up to 97% efficiency in double conversion mode.

Galaxy VL’s scalability enables you to pay-as-you grow, reducing both capital investment and TCO. You can buy the power modules you need up-front, and enjoy optimized operating efficiency, then add power modules with Live Swap as demand grows. The modular design also enables N+1 internal redundancy, which multiplies by 10 the system’s availability with no extra footprint.

Galaxy VL is compatible with Lithium-ion batteries. With our Schneider Electric Lithium-ion battery solution, classic VRLA, or NiCd batteries, critical loads have highly predictable runtimes.

Galaxy VL is EcoStruxure™ connected to give you peace of mind anytime, anywhere. Start-up service is included to optimize your system’s performance, quality, and safety. With Live Swap, modular design, and superior reliability, Galaxy VL is the ideal backbone for your critical infrastructure.

Embedded Network Management Card
Allows you to remotely manage alert thresholds and monitor your UPS over EcoStruxure IT, Web, SNMP, or Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU.

Compatible with Schneider Electric’s lithium ion battery solution
Reduces system footprint and weight, cooling and maintenance requirements, and total cost of ownership; offers double the life of VRLA batteries; and improves backup storage predictability and manageability.

Modular UPS design
Provides design redundancy and fast serviceability with improved mean time to repair, via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules.

Flexible DC bus
Optimizes battery sizing and supports a wide range of energy storage technologies, including VRLA, Li-ion, and NiCd batteries.

Parallel-redundant capable
Power the connected equipment with multiple uninterruptible power supplies to increase system redundancy

Parallel-capacity capable
Increases total power capacity by using multiple uninterruptible power supplies simultaneously.

Robust operation
No power derating in kW up to 40 degrees C or 104 degrees F.

Multiple levels of service offers
With the option of packages or individual service components, our services are structured to allow you to pick and choose what you would like Schneider Electric to do for you.

Front-access servicing
Simplifies installation and UPS maintenance while minimizing space requirements.

EcoStruxure IT Expert
From your smartphone or computer, connect to our cloud-based, do-it-yourself monitoring system that collects, organizes, and distributes critical alerts and key information in real time, providing a unified view of even highly distributed physical infrastructure environments. Optimize your uptime and maintenance planning, and anticipate infrastructure issues before they occur with advanced analytics and performance benchmarking. Available in select countries.

High efficiency in double conversion mode
Consistently high power quality at high efficiency, even at low load levels. Any disturbances on the distribution waveform are regenerated via the zero transfer time AC to DC then DC to AC conversion process. The battery is only used as a back-up source.

ECOnversion mode
Operating mode that ensures ultra high efficiency while charging the batteries, conditioning the load power factor and ensuring a Class 1 output voltage regulation.

Input Power Factor Correction
Minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.

Compact UPS
High-density technology and full front access make this UPS a footprint saver well suited for confined spaces.
