Schneider Electric (APC) Symmetra

The APC Symmetra PX is a world class, redundant, scalable, power protection system designed to cost effectively provide high levels of availability. Seamlessly integrating into today's state-of-the-art data center designs, the Symmetra PX is a true modular system. Made up of dedicated and redundant modules--power, intelligence, battery and bypass, all engineered into a design that is easily and efficiently serviceable, this architecture can scale power and runtime as demand grows or as higher levels of availability are required.

Symmetra PX serves as the core power train that drives APC InfraStruXure® systems for small and medium data centers but can also power individual "zones" of larger data centers. Highly manageable, the Symmetra PX features self-diagnostic capabilities and standardized modules which mitigate the risk of human error resulting in increased overall data center reliability.

Features

Availability 
Configurable for N+1 internal redundancy Provides high availability through redundancy by allowing configuration with one more Power Module than is necessary to support the connected load.
Redundant Intelligence Modules Provides higher availability to the UPS connected loads by giving redundant communication paths to critical UPS functions.
Power Modules connected in parallel Enhances availability by allowing immediate, seamless recovery from isolated module failures.
Swappable power modules Allows quick addition of power capacity or replacement of existing power modules. Installed modules are automatically recognized by the system.
Modular design Provides fast serviceability and reduced maintenance requirements via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules.
Network manageable Provides remote power management of the UPS over the network.
Automatic internal bypass Supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS power overload or fault.
 
Agility 
Scalable power capacity Reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick power upgrades, within the same footprint, later.
Programmable frequency Ensures compatibility with different input frequencies.
SmartSlot Customize UPS capabilities with management cards.
 
Total Cost of Ownership 
Fully-rated power kVA equals kW Reduces cost by eliminating the need for an oversized UPS for Power Factor Corrected (PFC) loads.
Input power factor correction Minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.
Generator compatible Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment when generator power is used.
5x8 Start-up service included Required for full coverage of factory warranty
 
Manageability 
Integrates with StruxureWare Data Center Expert An IT-ready, scalable access monitoring system that collects, organizes, and distributes critical alerts, surveillance video and key information, providing a unified view of complex physical infrastructure environments from anywhere on the network
LED status indicators Quickly understand unit and power status with visual indicators.
Audible alarms Provides notification of changing utility power and UPS power conditions
