The integrated tower design combines UPS, batteries, maintenance bypass, distribution and communications in a single compact unit. Available for order across the Americas in 10, 15 and 20 kVA/kW, three-phase, 208/220V models, the Liebert EXS can support single and three-phase critical loads.

With an integrated, optimized power approach, the monolithic, transformer-free Liebert EXS reduces footprint and complexity, making configuration and deployment fast and easy. High-efficiency operation is designed to reduce energy costs, and a high power factor reportedly delivers 10-20 percent more power per unit than competitive UPS systems.

Kyle Keeper, vice president of Global Power Offering Management, Vertiv, stated:

Liebert EXS is designed with contractors, integrators and end-users in mind. It packs a lot of power in a small space, delivering an efficient, reliable UPS solution that can be configured, deployed and serviced quickly and easily. The Liebert EXS adds to what already was the industry’s most complete portfolio of right-sized UPS solutions for data center and edge facilities.

The Liebert EXS delivers over 93 percent efficiency in double conversion mode, and 99 percent efficiency in eco-mode, ensuring a lower total cost of ownership. Flexible power output distribution (PODs) can be configured with varied receptacle types for more convenient and fast connections, reducing installation costs compared to traditional wall-mount panel distribution.

The Liebert EXS can provide flexible battery runtimes depending on the number of internal battery strings deployed. The 10kVA UPS can be optioned with one to four strings, while the 15 and 20kVA models offer two to four strings.

Liebert EXS provides intelligent communications to network and building management systems and includes the option to use the Trellis Power Insight application that supports real-time trending performance and the ability to manage multiple UPS systems.

Local service and support is available through a number of programs using Vertiv Services, including emergency and 24×7 coverage. Remote monitoring using Vertiv LIFE Services can bring peace of mind to critical system management, especially distant locations.
