MGE EPS 3000 End of Service Announcement

Posted by on February 9, 2012  |  No Comments

Schneider Electric has announced it will no longer support the MGE EPS 3000 series UPS as of December 31, 2011.

At this time, if you have a MGE EPS 3000 unit installed at your site location we strongly recommend that you begin planning to replace your EPS 3000 UPS system.  Should you decide to maintain your EPS 3000 unit past 2011, Schneider Electric cannot guarantee parts availability or an available trained field technician in the event of an emergency.

MGE EPS 3000 End of Service – Important Notes

  • The last date of production for the EPS 3000 line of UPS was November 2000.  If you currently own and operate a MGE EPS 3000 you are beyond it’s recommended life.
  • You will not be able to renew the Schneider Electric on-site service contracts beyond 12/31/11. Preventative maintenance visits and on site service calls will no longer be available.
  • Schneider Electric’s supply of available spare parts for these models is fast diminishing as some parts are no longer in production by the component manufacturer.
  • Schneider Electric factory trained technicians and technical support personnel will no longer stay current in relation to this product family.

We would welcome an opportunity to discuss the various product replacement options as support for the MGE EPS 3000 officially came to an end in 2011.  APC-Smart UPS and APC Symmetra PX line of products are excellent considerations based on your facility’s specific requirements.

APC Smart-UPS On-Line Features and Benefits Overview

Posted by on February 6, 2012  |  No Comments

A versatile UPS developed for the harshest power conditions in the world.

Smart-UPS On-Line provides high density, true double-conversion on-line power protection for servers, voice / data networks, medical labs, and light industrial applications. Capable of supporting loads from 1 to 20kVA in a rack/tower convertible form, the Smart-UPS On-Line is available from 2U to 12U. Recent family extensions at 15 and 20kVA enable support of power hungry blade servers or heavily loaded equipment racks. When business-critical systems require runtime in hours, not minutes, Smart-UPS On-Line can be configured with matching battery packs to comply with aggressive runtime demands. The included PowerChute management software provides unattended graceful shutdown of network operating systems. All models 5kVA and above include an integrated Network Management Card for remote management (optional on models below 5 kVA). The entire Smart-UPS On-Line family provides value to customers with demanding power environments, including very wide input voltage window, extremely tight output voltage regulation, frequency regulation, internal bypass, and input power factor correction.
