APC Symmetra PX

APC Symmetra PX 16 – 500kVA

The APC Symmetra PX is a world class, redundant, scalable, power protection system designed to cost effectively provide high levels of availability. Seamlessly integrating into today's state-of-the-art data center designs.

Product Description

Symmetra PX serves as the core power train that drives APC InfraStruXure® systems for small and medium data centers but can also power individual “zones” of larger data centers. Highly manageable, the Symmetra PX features self-diagnostic capabilities and standardized modules which mitigate the risk of human error resulting in increased overall data center reliability.


  • 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.
  • Redundant Intelligence Modules
Provides higher availability to the UPS connected loads by giving redundant communication paths to critical UPS functions.
  • Power Modules connected in parallel
Enhances availability by allowing immediate, seamless recovery from isolated module failures.
  • Battery modules connected in parallel
Delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.
  • Hot-swappable power modules
Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Power Module replacement.
  • Hot-swappable intelligence modules
Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Intelligence Module replacement.
  • Hot-swappable batteries
Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced
  • Modular design
Provides fast serviceability and reduced maintenance requirements via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules.
  • Network manageable
Provides remote power management of the UPS over the network.
  • Automatic internal bypass
Supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS power overload or fault.
  • Scalable power capacity
Reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick upgrades later.
  • Scalable runtime
Allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
  • Front-access servicing
Simplifies installation and UPS maintenance while minimizing space requirements.
  • Programmable frequency
Ensures compatibility with different input frequencies.
  • SmartSlot
Customize UPS capabilities with management cards.
  • Battery replacement without tools

Total Cost of Ownership
  • Fully-rated power kVA equals kW
Reduces cost by eliminating the need for an oversized UPS for Power Factor Corrected (PFC) loads.
  • Input power factor correction
Minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.
  • Generator compatible
Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment when generator power is used.
  • Automatic self-test
Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging
Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
  • Manageable external batteries
Reduces preventative maintenance service needs by monitoring the health and status of the external batteries and their expected runtime.
  • Intelligent battery management
Maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • 5×8 Start-up service included
Required for full coverage of factory warranty
  • Integrates with StruxureWare Data Center Expert
An IT-ready, scalable access monitoring system that collects, organizes, and distributes critical alerts, surveillance video and key information, providing a unified view of complex physical infrastructure environments from anywhere on the network
  • LED status indicators
Quickly understand unit and power status with visual indicators.
  • Audible alarms
Provides notification of changing utility power and UPS power conditions
