Vertiv launches next-generation mid-size UPS system for critical applications


Vertiv has launched its latest on-line double conversion uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems in Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Applications include manufacturing, healthcare and railways.

The Liebert EXM2, with a compact and flexible footprint, is designed for a wide range of applications and is compatible with lithium-ion batteries. It is the latest line of on-line double conversion UPS systems for mid-size applications.

With power capacity ranging from 100 to 250 kVA, the new equipment offers performance optimising intelligent paralleling and three machine-learning based modes that cuts costs and keeps energy dissipation to a minimum.

The Liebert EXM2 tolerates high temperatures of up to 50°C, is a three-phase monolithic UPS providing double conversion efficiency up to 97%, which further increases up to 98.8% with the dynamic online mode.

Its power capacity system is designed for a wide range of applications,in manufacturing, healthcare, light industrial, commercial offices, and medium size data centres.

Liebert EXM2 provides technological advancements that enhance efficiency and reliability, such as intelligent paralleling that optimises performance at partial load to achieve cost savings.

It features Vertiv’s proven dynamic on-line mode that delivers up to 98.8% efficiency whilst ensuring fast transfer output performance and reliability. Moreover, the internal modular fault tolerant design allows for safe, easy and fast installation and service, reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) and maximising availability.

The latest innovations provide industry-leading efficiency and thus energy savings, significantly reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) and allowing quick return on investment (ROI).

Liebert EXM2 offers advanced monitoring, management and diagnostic capabilities through a nine-inch touchscreen panel that enables flexible views and multiple security options.

The intelligent controls and communications are compatible with Vertiv LIFE Services, Liebert Nform, SiteScan and the Trellis platform infrastructure monitoring software, as well as third-party battery management systems (BMS) and data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) systems.

Liebert EXM2 replaces the flagship Liebert EXM, which has been widely recognised as a highly performing UPS system, supporting thousands of sites and about 1.7 GW of mission-critical loads across the globe.

This latest product innovation addresses the growing need for a highly reliable and efficient UPS for mid-size applications that enable low latency connection between cloud and edge sites.

Vertiv is a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions and brings together hardware, software, analytics and ongoing services to ensure its customers’ vital applications run continuously, perform optimally and grow with their business needs.
