Uninterruptible power supply for industrial environments

Schneider Electric has announced the availability of Gutor PXC, a standardised, fully industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for harsh environments. The product is suited to rugged and outdoor settings such as oil and gas exploration and production sites, marine and offshore environments and climates with extreme temperatures.

The product protects critical equipment and industrial applications from damage due to power outages, surges and spikes while providing short term battery power during an outage. Due to the solution’s standardised and flexible design, users including facility managers, engineers and contractors will have the ability to deploy a reliable and turnkey solution in a dramatically shorter time frame and at a lower cost, according to the company.

Other features include a high operating temperature (up to 55°C), integrated seismic compliance, dust ambience, a small foot print (10 to 80kVA) and lifetime management of 20+ years.
