UPS range for continuity during power outages

25 March 2020 Smart Home Automation

Legrand’s advanced uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems ensure maximum continuity of service of essential electrical equipment, by providing reliable performance in terms of power and backup time, particularly during electrical network disturbances like load shedding.

Legrand’s environmentally responsible approach to constantly changing global markets, encompasses ongoing technological developments of its product portfolio, in terms of energy efficiency, quality power supply, optimum safety and enhanced aesthetics.

According to Legrand, innovative design, advanced electronic components and thorough testing of each unit ensures dependability, energy efficiency and safety of the new UPS system. High-performance batteries and an efficient charging system significantly extend battery life by up to 50%.

Legrand’s UPS systems, which provide optimised power efficiency resulting in cost-effective solutions, encompass three ranges: line interactive, conventional and modular.

Line interactive UPS systems comprise units from 600 VA up to 3 kVA single-phase. This range is ideal for small office and home use.

Conventional UPS systems, for power from 0,8 kVA to 800 kVA, in single and three-phase, offer the commercial sector safe, efficient and innovative solutions, including reliable electrical redundancy. The design of this range offers flexibility in semi-modularity, whereby the autonomy and power can be expanded as required.

Legrand’s compact and lightweight modular series, from 1,25 kVA to 800 kVA, is a flexible three-phase system, comprising individual single-phase modules that can be added to existing configurations to increase the power supply or backup time.

An advantage of a three-phase power supply system with single-phase loads, is that in the event of a failure of one of the modules, there is no loss of power. Power continues to be distributed over the other modules which are still operational. The modular functionality of the batteries enables the removal of faulty batteries, or to increase the autonomy by adding batteries as required.

A range of communications accessories has been designed for managing and configuring the UPS, as well as for remote control of the system. These devices include network interfaces for real-time control of the UPS and for managing numerous events that include no power, overloads and bypass problems. These network interfaces, with a 32-bit processor, do not require any external software. Other accessories include sensors for monitoring ambient temperature and humidity, smoke detectors and fire safety controls, as well as air conditioning fault and intrusion detectors.

Communication and supervision software for accessing the operating parameters of the UPS and for carrying out full diagnostics and the configuration of specific functions, is also available. Legrand’s online site configurator at assists with the selection of the correct UPS, by providing easy power selection and calculation of the necessary backup time required.
