Galaxy 3500 40kVA 400V 3:1, Start-up 5X8

Performance UPS power for critical applications
MGE Galaxy 3500 UPS offers compact 3 phase power protection with the reliability of the MGE product family. Ideal for commercial and technical facilities as well as industrial applications, the MGE Galaxy 3500 includes dual-mains input, automatic and maintenance bypasses, and scalable runtime with hot-swappable batteries for increased availability. The parallel capability for redundancy and capacity, new optional bypass panels, and extended run battery frames provide increased flexibility. Low cost of ownership is achieved through best-in-class efficiency and a reduction in rating of electrical infrastructure - wires, transformers, and generators. The built in Network Management Card with temperature monitoring provides remote UPS power monitoring and management through a simple Web/SNMP interface. Serviceability is greatly enhanced by user-replaceable batteries, front access servicing, and included start-up service for maximized configurabililty. All these features make the MGE Galaxy 3500 the easiest UPS in its class to deploy, manage and maintain.
