APC Symmetra MW Range (400-1600kVA)

Product Description

This product is now discontinued and no longer available.

The replacement for this product is the Galaxy VX range.

The APC Symmetra MW range from Specialist Power Systems redefines high-power UPS technology as a modular, fault-tolerant UPS in the 400-1600 kilowatt range.

Ideal for large data centers, complete buildings, healthcare and other critical facility protection requirements, the Symmetra MW can be scaled for rigorous and changing electrical demands. The Symmetra MW provides increased availability through internal N+1 configurability, predictive failure notification and multi-module paralleling features. 

Setting a new standard for low cost of ownership, the Symmetra MW delivers best-in-class efficiency and a reduction in rating of electrical infrastructure- wires, transformers and generators. Slide-in/out power modules, manageable external batteries and self-diagnosing features greatly reduce mean time to repair, and lithium-ion battery solutions reduce battery maintenance and cost. The Symmetra MW provides a customizable system in a standardized design for any large on-demand network-critical physical infrastructure.


  • EU CoC for UPS ensures that UPSs sold in the EU are highly efficient

Total cost of Ownership

  • Input Power Factor Correction minimizes installation costs by enabling the use of smaller generators and cabling.
  • Intelligent battery management maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • Compatible with Schneider Electric's lithium ion battery solution which reduces the system’s footprint and weight, cooling and maintenance requirements, and total cost of ownership offering double the life of VRLA batteries and improving backup storage predictability and manageability. 
  • Fully rated power kVA equals kW reduces cost by eliminating the need for an oversized UPS for Power Factor Corrected (PFC) loads.
  • Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
  • Manageable external batteries reduce preventative maintenance service needs by monitoring the health and status of the external batteries and their expected runtime.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.


  • Power Modules connected in parallel enhance availability by allowing immediate, seamless recovery from isolated module failures.
  • Network manageable provides remote power management of the UPS over the network.
  • A modular design provides scalability, N+1 redundancy, fast serviceability, and reduced maintenance requirements via self-diagnosing, hot-swappable, and field-replaceable modules.
  • 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.
  • Battery failure notification provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries enabling timely preventive maintenance
  • Audible alarms provide notification of changing utility power and UPS power conditions


  • Scalable power capacity reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick power upgrades, within the same footprint, later.
  • Front-access servicing simplifies installation and UPS maintenance while minimizing space requirements.
  • Scalable runtime allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
  • Parallel-capacity capable increases total power capacity by using multiple uninterruptible power supplies simultaneously.
  • Multiple cable-entry points provide flexibility of UPS placement in the room and easy access to install cabling to the terminal blocks.
  • Parallel-redundant capable to power the connected equipment with multiple uninterruptible power supplies to increase system redundancy.
