Schneider Electric Launches Remote Power Panel for Data Centers
Schneider Electric has launched its Galaxy RPP (Remote Power Panel) 250 and 400 Amp (208V) solution. The new offering is designed to expand high-density power distribution capacity for data centers and colocation facilities.
“With its compact footprint and connectivity into EcoStruxure, it is the ideal solution to distribute PDU power downstream in data centers and colocation facilities,” said Mustafa Demirkol, Global Vice President, 3-Phase UPS Offer Management & Marketing, Schneider Electric.
Available in North America, the latest offer in the Schneider Electric Galaxy product family compliments all 75-500 kVA PDUs. It provides connectivity to an end-to-end software platform for remote monitoring and control of critical data center assets.
The EcoStruxure Ready Galaxy RPP features a unique five-way access panel. It would help to simplify maintenance, reduce downtime, and enhance user safety. Designed for efficient installation, the compartmental approach separates monitoring, distribution, and control. This would give customers the flexibility to selectively assign access.
“Reliable and easy to install, the highly configurable Galaxy RPP is tailored to meet the demanding scalability needs of any large data center, delivering maximum flexibility with branch breaker choices you can add quickly as the data center needs change,” said Mustafa Demirkol, Global Vice President, 3-Phase UPS Offer Management & Marketing, Schneider Electric. “With its compact footprint and connectivity into EcoStruxure, it is the ideal solution to distribute PDU power downstream in data centers and colocation facilities.”
