Vertiv Expands GXT5 Lithium-ion Product Line with 5-10kVA Models for Critical Edge Deployments
Edge computing is growing at a rate of 12.5% annually and should reach $250.6 billion in 2024.Digital technologies and smart applications that rely on network connectivity to the cloud are driving this increased need for localized IT resources. The latest member of Vertiv’s GXT5 UPS family not only supports these critical and complex computing environments but also the data center industry’s commitment to sustainability.
Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-ion UPS, 5kVA-10kVA
Vertiv introduced its Liebert GXT5 Lithium-ion UPS product line in 2022 with 1-3kVA UPS systems ideal for edge or distributed IT applications. Now the Company has expanded the offering to include 5kVA to 10 kVA models. These new UPS systems are available for immediate deployment anywhere in the United States.
The GXT5 Lithium-ion UPS systems are designed for the smaller spaces typical of the network edge, with a convertible rack/tower design and only a 3U (5kVA/6kVA) or 4U (8kVA/10kVA) footprint. The single-phase input UPS has advanced split-phase output of both 120V and 208V, thus eliminating the need for bulky 208/120V stepdown transformers. Each 5-10kVA model also includes a zero-U maintenance bypass with integral power distribution providing you greater power density in a small form factor.
