Schneider Electric has introduced the new 24V DC Easy UPS. Created for commercial and industrial environments where power disruption risks productivity, the new Easy UPS minimises downtime and protects equipment, resulting in reduced machine maintenance, and improved control over industrial infrastructure. Designed with OEMs and system integrators in mind, Schneider Electric’s new 24V DC Power industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) will be available globally in early 2022.
“When considering power protection and battery backup in commercial and industrial applications, operators need to focus on power reliability and consider the high cost of downtime,” says Vincenzo Salmeri, VP, Commercial and Industrial, Secure Power Division at Schneider Electric. “When power isn’t controlled it can lead to a host of issues including data loss and the need to restart automation machines from scratch after outages. Schneider Electric’s Easy-UPS helps operators in commercial and industrial environments gain control with remote monitoring and management to fully protect their investment.”
Key benefits of the Easy UPS include:
- Minimise downtime and protect equipment: Battery backup to ensure uptime of controllers and HMIs and minimise equipment damage due to poor power quality
- Reduce machine maintenance: Save data and programs with equipment shutdown using 0-5V signals from the relay contacts and eliminate the need to restart automation machines after power outages
- Scalable runtime: Add up to four additional battery packs for additional runtime during extended power outages
- Better control over industrial infrastructure: Manage and diagnose UPS with relay contacts, and check UPS status with LED indicators
The new Easy UPS will be available globally starting in early 2022 for purchase directly from Schneider Electric or the electrical and industrial channels.
New research highlights strategies for successful connected operations
In addition, Schneider Electric shared findings from a newly released IDC White Paper entitled, Succeeding at Digital First Connected Operations, which discusses the role of edge computing in enabling the shift to a digital-first world. The white paper details responses from over 1,000 IT and operations professionals across industrial, healthcare, education, and other verticals as well as a series of in-depth interviews with industrial enterprises. Responses provide insights about the challenges firms faced while deploying to the edge to enable connected operations, and strategic recommendations to future-proof edge capabilities.
