APC Symmetra 230 V (4 kVA – 16 kVA)

The APC Symmetra is a highly available single phase UPS, featuring redundant and scalable double-conversion on-line power protection. Engineered to deliver the highest level of business continuity possible, Symmetra’s modular, redundant architecture can scale power and run time as demand increases or when higher levels of availability are required. Integrated network manageability provides real time status updates of UPS health and environmental conditions. Hot-swappable, user replaceable power, battery, and intelligence modules enables low MTTR and ease of service. Symmetra’s modular design provides redundant power in a single chassis for business-critical applications in server rooms and network closets.

Hot-swappable power modules Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Power Module replacement.
Modular design Provides fast serviceability and reduced maintenance requirements via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules.
Hot-swappable intelligence modules Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Intelligence Module replacement.
Power Modules connected in parallel Enhances availability by allowing immediate, seamless recovery from isolated module failures.
Hot-swappable batteries Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced
Configurable for N 1 internal redundancy Provides high availability through redundancy by allowing configuration with one more Power Module than is necessary to support the connected load.
Automatic internal bypass Supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS power overload or fault.
Battery modules connected in parallel Delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.
Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown Automatically starts up the connected equipment upon the return of utility power.
Redundant Intelligence Modules Provides higher availability to the UPS connected loads by giving redundant communication paths to critical UPS functions.
Marketing Features
Avoids costly power problems by keeping your IT equipment and data protected and available. Network grade power conditioning protects from damaging surges and disruptive noise. The double conversion architecture provides tight voltage regulation, frequency regulation and zero transfer time to the battery during power events.
Peace of mind that comes with complete equipment compatibility and reliability of a market leader. Safety agency tested and approved means that you can deploy Symmetra with confidence that they meet or exceed the industry’s most rigorous standards.
Save time with easy and convenient remote accessibility. Network manageable via serial, USB or optional Ethernet. Includes Powerchute® Network Shutdown Software for convenient monitoring and control, safe operating system shutdown, and innovative energy management capabilities.
Low operating and maintenance costs with proven reliability and intelligent battery management. Intelligent battery management, pioneered by APC, maximises battery performance and life through intelligent, precision temperature compensated charging. Automatic self-tests ensure battery reliability and warn customers in advance of battery replacement. Convenient, easy to connect, hot-swappable battery modules provide battery replacement without powering down.
Modular, Scalable, Redundant Architecture future proof initial investment, improves equipment availability and simplifies maintenance. Symmetra LX’s redundant N 1 architecture enables the unit to withstand failures of an intelligence module, battery or power module. Modules are easily replaceable in the field. Customers can add additional power modules or batteries after initial equipment purchase to accommodate loads of up to 16 kVA.
Scalable runtime Allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
Programmable frequency Ensures compatibility with different input frequencies.
Field-replaceable power distribution panel Ensures compatibility with equipment that has different plug types.
Plug-and-Play external batteries Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to the loads when adding extra runtime to the UPS.
Scalable power capacity Reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick power upgrades, within the same footprint, later.
