A reliable and constant source of power is paramount to the smooth operation of Equiniti.
The Equiniti ICS Belfast site were upgrading their electrical infrastructure and had several server rooms with local UPS but the requirement was to integrate all server rooms with adequate backup power to consolidate and manage potential risk. They also required a solution to monitor the power usage in each rack.
Equiniti ICS selected Continu to supply and install a parallel 120kVA Schneider Electric Galaxy 5500 UPS to facilitate all the servers and replace smaller local rack-based UPS. The solution also included supply of ten plus smaller UPS’s and 42 metered-by-outlet 16Amp Rack Power Distribution Units (PDU) in order to monitor power usage. The IT team were also provided with supply, install and training on APC StuxureWare Monitoring Software.
The key feature of the Schneider Electric Galaxy 5500 is the latest in advanced power management systems, engineered to increase performance and reliability. Online technology fully isolates and protects against all power quality disturbances in even the most demanding environments. High efficiency in double conversion or ECO mode saves valuable energy costs and a comprehensive range of options enables the Schneider Electric Galaxy 5500 to be highly effective in any application. Full front access allows for a space saving footprint, user friendly graphical display and the StruxureWare Monitoring enables the IT team to remotely monitor the UPS Systems, PDUs and other third party equipment.
