Vertiv (https://bit.ly/3ObgEub) (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, today introduced the Vertiv™ Geist™ Rack Transfer Switch (RTS) (https://bit. ly /3GcWZbr), a new line of transfer switches that provide redundant power for single cord devices, and the highly efficient Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion (https://bit.ly/3TC087J) uninterruptible power supply (UPS), designed for rack or standalone installation. These spare devices are ideal for use in distributed IT networks and edge computing locations, and are now available and shipping from stock in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The Vertiv Geist RTS instantly detects power loss and automatically transfers the load to another source in less than 4 to 8 milliseconds, allowing the supported servers and other critical devices to continue operating through planned or unplanned outages . It is currently available in upgradeable and enhanced infotainment models, as well as transfer and outlet monitoring models. Basic upgradeable models include the information needed today, with the option to upgrade technology as needs arise. Enhanced intelligence models provide a comprehensive view of the critical power usage of IT equipment, available at the rack or through remote access.
In addition to providing redundant power, the Vertiv Geist RTS also proactively monitors the IT environment, including temperature, humidity and airflow. Users have the option to enhance device monitoring features, to remotely monitor IT power usage. The Vertiv Geist RTS can support up to 24 outlets for high-density rack configurations.
Available in 1000VA, 1500VA, 2000VA and 3000VA capacities, the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion is a double conversion, online UPS that leverages the higher power density of lithium-ion to pack more battery runtime into the same amount of space as a typical valve . -regulated lead acid (VRLA) battery. The Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion also supports scalable runtime with the ability to add up to eight external 1U lithium-ion battery cabinets to each UPS.
Lithium-ion batteries typically last 8-10 years – about the life of the UPS itself – compared to about 3-5 years for VRLA batteries, which can eliminate expensive and difficult battery replacement and maintenance. Lithium-ion batteries are also much lighter than VRLA batteries and perform better at higher temperatures, reducing the costs and energy required for rack cooling. These inherent advantages give Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion customers a total cost of ownership (TCO) that is up to 50% lower than a similar UPS using VRLA batteries, over the typical lifetime of the UPS. In addition, the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion has a high power factor (0.9-1.0) and an efficiency of up to 95% in online mode and up to 98% in active ECO mode, which enables further energy savings and on costs.
“As edge computing, IoT and 5G continue to expand and become the new backbone of digitization, distributors and resellers are looking for effective solutions to protect small and micro IT sites from power outages,” said Birgit Jackson, director, integrated racks and IT solutions. for Vertiv in EMEA. “These additions to our IT channel portfolio bring a suite of benefits to support growth at the network edge, enabling businesses to leverage the latest technologies and accelerate their digital transformation journey.”
The Vertiv ™ Geist ™ RTS and Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS are ideal for banking, healthcare, financial services, education, energy, government and transportation industries that operate micro data centers, distributed IT networks or edge computing data centers.
