Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has extended its Vertiv Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion double-conversion, on-line uninterruptable power supply (UPS) system for 5kVA-10kVA Global Voltage applications

Designed for smaller spaces typical of the network edge, the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion models are designed with a convertible rack/tower design and only a 3U rack height. The GXT5 LI GV models include an integrated maintenance bypass cabinet preserving additional rack U-space and all UPS systems come with a five-year limited warranty.

“With this expanded offering, Vertiv is poised to capitalise on the expected rapid growth of lithium-ion batteries,” commented Karsten Winther, president for Vertiv in the EMEA region. “The Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS offers compactness, versatility, and low maintenance, presenting an efficient solution perfectly suited for remote sites with minimal onsite technical support.”

Vertiv quoted research by Omdia that suggested lithium-based battery adoption for UPS in data centres is expected to continue its rapid growth. Indeed, it is expected to dominate the UPS battery market, reaching 65% of global revenue by 2030. And, judging by the benefits expounded by Vertiv, it is not hard to see why. With lithium-ion batteries boasting higher power density, the company has been able to pack more runtime in less space compared to typical UPS with valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries and reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 50% due to improved performance at higher operating temperatures alongside a longer life expectancy.

Vertiv is now accepting orders for the new 5kVA-10kVA GV models in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and shipping from current inventories.

This expansion from Vertiv follows a number of new solutions the company has brought to the EMEA market. See also:
