Schneider Electric Makes eConversion the Default Mode for its Galaxy V-Series UPSs
Schneider Electric announced an enhanced version of eConversion (formerly known as ECOnversion), the company’s generally-recommended protection mode to provide increased sustainability for its Galaxy V Series 3-phase UPSs. After years of field tests, effective May 31, 2022, all Galaxy V Series UPSs will be shipped to customers with eConversion as the default.
With cost of ownership and sustainability as an ongoing pain point, Schneider Electric claims to be the only company that offers this unique, patented combination of performance and efficiency. “eConversion mode provides the highest protection level for critical loads with Class-1 (UL certified) and results in savings up to three times the UPS price. Providing critical back-up power solutions for IT and non-IT environments, such as industrial edge applications, Galaxy V Series’ eConversion delivers reliable power protection and helps attain new levels of sustainability,” a statement issued by the company said.
eConversion has over eight years of field deployment and thousands of customers worldwide who use it daily to protect their critical loads since its launch in 2014.
“With eConversion as the default mode for Galaxy V Series 3-phase UPSs, we expect to facilitate the conservation of 175 GWH of electricity annually – which is the equivalent of the energy produced by nearly 60000 rooftop solar installations,” says Mustafa Demirkol, Vice President of Data Center Systems, Offer Management and Marketing, Energy Management at Schneider Electric. “We’re looking forward to helping customers meet their sustainability goals while reducing their electricity spending and corresponding carbon emissions.”
Sachin Bhalla, Vice President and Country General Manager, Secure Power Division, India and SAARC, stated, “We have introduced an enhanced version of eConversion that is designed to provide the highest protection for critical loads with Class-1 (UL certified) and while saving up to three times the UPS price. We are confident that through this incentive, we will be able to help customers in reducing their CO2 emissions while assisting them in becoming sustainable citizens of tomorrow.”
