Vertiv adds new UPS Models to Lithium-Ion Portfolio


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

Vertiv has extended its Vertiv Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion double-conversion, on-line uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system with 5kVA-10kVA Global Voltage (GV) (200V-240V; Default 230V) applications. This expansion of the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion line to 10kVA (from 1-3kVA) further rounds out the Vertiv portfolio of lithium-ion UPS systems and solutions for the edge of the network. 

The Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion models are designed for the smaller spaces typical of the network edge, with a convertible rack/tower design and only a 3U (5kVA to 10kVA UPS) rack height. These GXT5 LI GV models include an integrated maintenance bypass cabinet preserving additional rack U-space. All Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion UPS systems come with a five-year limited warranty.

“We are excited about the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion launch from Vertiv and the benefits it brings to our customers. With extended runtime, longer battery life and faster recharge compared to VRLA batteries among the improvements, this product will help better protect critical infrastructure and lower support costs,” said Mike Parham, Technical Solutions Architect, World Wide Technology (WWT).

“With this expanded offering, Vertiv is poised to capitalize on the expected rapid growth of lithium-ion batteries. 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,” stated Karsten Winther, President for Vertiv in the EMEA region. 

With improved performance at higher operating temperatures and longer life expectancy, the lithium-ion batteries in the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion reduce the total cost of ownership by up to 50% compared to VRLA solutions. In addition, lithium-ion batteries typically last eight to 10 years, compared to about three to five years for VRLA batteries, reducing or eliminating the cost and inconvenience of battery replacements during the life of the UPS.
