Vertiv introduces a new line of lithium-ion rackmount transfer switches and uninterruptible power supplies for distributed information technology (IT) and network edge computing applications in Europe, the Middle East and in Africa (EMEA) – African Business


Vertiv ( (NYSE: VRT), a global provider of continuity and critical digital infrastructure solutions, today introduced the Vertiv™ Geist™ Rack Transfer Switch (RTS) (, a new line of transfer switches that provide redundant power to single-corded devices, and the highly efficient Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) (, designed for rack or stand-alone installation. These space-saving devices are ideal for use in distributed computing networks and edge computing sites, and are now available and shipped from stock in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

The Vertiv Geist RTS instantly detects power loss and automatically switches the load to an alternate source in less than 4-8 milliseconds, allowing supported servers and other critical devices to continue operating in the event of a planned or unplanned outage. It is currently available in scalable and enhanced base intelligence models, as well as switched and outlet-level monitored models. Scalable base models include the intelligence needed today, with the ability to upgrade technology as needs change. Enhanced intelligence models provide a complete view of power usage for critical IT equipment, available at the rack level or through remote access.

In addition to providing redundant power, the Vertiv Geist RTS also proactively monitors the computing environment, including temperature, humidity, and airflow. Users have the ability to enhance device monitoring capabilities, with remote monitoring of IT power usage. The Vertiv Geist RTS can support up to 24 outlets for higher density rack configurations.

Available in 1000VA, 1500VA, 2000VA, and 3000VA capacities, the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion is a double-conversion online UPS that harnesses the higher power density of lithium-ion to deliver more power. battery life in the same space as a conventional valve. -Regulated lead-acid battery (VRLA). The Liebert® GXT5 Lithium-Ion also supports scalable runtime with the ability to add up to eight 1U lithium-ion external battery cabinets to each UPS.

Lithium-ion batteries typically last 8-10 years – about the life of the inverter itself – compared to about 3-5 years for VRLA batteries, potentially eliminating costly and inexpensive replacements and maintenance. battery practices. Lithium-ion batteries are also significantly lighter than VRLA batteries and perform better at higher temperatures, reducing the expense and energy needed to cool racks. These inherent benefits provide Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion customers with up to 50% lower total cost of ownership (TCO) than a similar UPS using VRLA batteries, over the typical life of the UPS. Additionally, the Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion features a high power factor (0.9-1.0) and efficiency up to 95% in online mode and up to 98% in active ECO mode, saving energy energy and additional costs.

“As edge computing, IoT and 5G continue to grow and become the new backbone of digitization, distributors and resellers are looking for effective solutions to protect small and micro IT sites against power outages,” said Birgit Jackson, director, integrated racks and IT solutions. for Vertiv in the EMEA region. “These additions to our IT channel portfolio bring a series of benefits to support growth at the network edge, enabling enterprises to take advantage of the latest technologies and accelerate their digital transformation journey.”

Vertiv™ Geist™ RTS and Liebert GXT5 Lithium-Ion Inverters are ideal for banking, healthcare, financial services, education, power, government and transportation industries that operate micro- data centers, distributed computer networks or edge computing data centers.

These latest additions to Vertiv’s IT channel portfolio allow EMEA resellers in participating countries to earn more points through the Vertiv Incentive Program (VIP), which allows partners to easily earn rewards without the need for reporting. Bonus points are uploaded monthly to the Vertiv Partner Portal, and the partner only needs to log in to redeem them.
