The New Galaxy 300 is also available in 1 phase output to meet the Light industrial requirements.

The UPS also comes with other features like high efficiency, compact size UPS with inbuilt batteries, double conversion online for maximum protection, multi-language display, installation wizard and mimic diagrams for easy operation,full maintenance bypass integrated and highly serviceable.

According to Jayabalan Velayudhan, Director Strategy & Business Development, Schneider Electric IT Business, the market for 3-Phase 10-40KVA UPS in India is anticipated to grow at the rate of 8-10% per annum.

“This is a unique opportunity for Schneider Electric to introduce the new version of Galaxy 300 which offers reliable power protection and a robust and easy-to-install system at the best price-to-performance ratio. We are confident that with the launch of Galaxy 300, we will be able to capture the 3-Phase UPS market specifically for general purpose applications,” said Velayudhan.

The Galaxy 300 is the easiest UPS in its class to install, manage and maintain. The product is aimed at electrical contractors and facility managers who do not have specialized knowledge in UPS installation and are end-customer influencers.
