APC by Schneider Electric’s Symmetra PX
September 2011, Enterprise Solutions, Security Services & Risk Management, Products
APC by Schneider Electric’s Symmetra PX is a redundant, scalable, power protection system designed to cost effectively provide high levels of availability.
Seamlessly integrating into today's state-of-the-art data centre designs, the Symmetra PX is a true modular system. Made up of dedicated and redundant modules - power, intelligence, battery and bypass - all engineered into a design that is easily and efficiently serviceable, this architecture can scale power and runtime as demand grows or as higher levels of availability are required.
The Symmetra PX serves as the core power train that drives APC InfraStruXure systems for small and medium data centres but can also power individual ‘zones’ of larger data centres. Highly manageable, the Symmetra PX features self-diagnostic capabilities and standardised modules, which mitigate the risk of human error resulting in increased overall data centre reliability.
