APC SY40K100F overview

  • 1Description

Suitable for use in small to medium data centers and high-density zones, the Symmetra PX 40kW UPS from APC is a modular, high-efficiency 3-phase UPS that is scalable up to 100kW. Its batteries can provide 44 minutes of runtime for connected components at 10kW, 18 minutes of runtime at 20kW, 10 minutes of runtime at 30kW, and 6 minutes of runtime at 40kW. It also provides an output capacity of 40kW / 40 kVA, one Hard Wire 5-wire (3PH + N + G) battery backup outlet, an input voltage of 208V @ 40-70 Hz, and utilizes double conversion online topology, a sine waveform, DB-9 RS-232 and SmartSlot interfaces, and an LCD status and control console. Its battery modules can be recharged in around two hours, and this UPS can be also expanded for increased runtimes.

Included are 4 x Symmetra PX 10kW Power Modules (208V), 16 x Symmetra PX 9Ah Battery Units, one Symmetra PX Battery Frame for 400V PX 96/160kW & 208V PX 100kW for 9 Battery Modules, and one Symmetra PX 100kW Power Frame (208V). Protection is provided by a limited 1-year onsite repair or replace warranty with factory authorized 5x8 start-up.

SY40K100F Features

Adjustable Voltage Sensitivity
Provides the ability to adapt the UPS for improved performance in specific power environments or generator applications.
Adjustable Voltage-Transfer Points
Maximizes useful battery life by widening the input voltage window or tightening the output voltage regulation.
Advanced Electrical Features
Good power conditioning, low harmonic distortion through IGBT rectifier, input power factor correction, and improved power efficiency.
Automatic Self-Test
Periodic battery self-test helps ensure early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
Battery Failure Notification
Provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries, enabling timely preventive maintenance.
Battery Modules Connected in Parallel
Delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.
Battery Replacement without Tools
Enables fast battery replacement, lowering the Mean Time to Repair (MTTR).
