Compact three phase power protection with excellent efficiency and hot scalable runtime for small data centers and other business critical applications

Smart-UPS VT offers centralized three-phase power protection with the reliability of the award winning Smart-UPS family. Ideal for small data centers, large retail stores, regional offices, and dense power requirements, the Smart-UPS VT includes dual-mains input, automatic and maintenance bypasses, and scalable runtime with Hot-swappable batteries for increased availability. The rack mounted version maximizes valuable floor space by incorporating UPS, power distribution, and additional battery capacity in a single rack. Low cost of ownership is achieved through best-in-class efficiency and a reduction in rating of electrical infrastructure - wires, transformers, and generators due the Smart-UPS VT's Soft Start feature. The APC Network Management Card with temperature monitoring provides remote monitoring and management through a simple Web/SNMP interface and provides integration with InfraStruXure® Manager. Serviceability is greatly enhanced by user-replaceable batteries, manageable extended run frames and included start-up and standard onsite warranty services. All these features make the Smart-UPS VT the easiest UPS in its class to deploy, manage and maintain.

Features & Benefits:

SUVTP15KF2B2S Features
Parallel-capacity capable Increases total power capacity by using multiple UPSs simultaneously.
Parallel-redundant capable Power the connected equipment with multiple UPSs to increase system redundancy.
Dual mains input Increases availability by allowing the UPS to be connected to two separate power sources.
Scalable runtime Allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
Hot-swappable batteries Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced.
Generator compatible Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment when generator power is used.
Automatic internal bypass Supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS overload condition or fault.
Battery modules connected in parallel Delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.
Battery replacement without tools Allows quick, easy battery replacement.
