Backup Power Protection for Ultra-Low Temperature Vaccine Freezers

July 13, 2021

Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 UPS offers intelligent, efficient protection for what may be the world’s most mission-critical application in modern times.

The ultra-low temperature freezers required to properly store COVID-19 vaccines require a reliable source of uninterruptible power with continuous power conditioning. If the power goes out, or if the power quality is poor, it can put precious doses at risk and jeopardize the healthcare industry’s efforts to reign in the devasting effects of the virus. Backing up the power source to the freezers with a reliable uninterruptable power supply (UPS) gives healthcare providers the confidence to know that every dose in their arsenal will be put to good use. 

Online double conversion technology affords greater peace of mind.

The Vertiv™ Liebert® GXT5 UPS is an online double conversion UPS solution that offers premium power outage protection with a wide input voltage range and tight output voltage and frequency regulation. With one Liebert GXT5, multiple ultra-low temperature freezers— including upright, portable, and under the-counter models—can be fully isolated from raw utility power, safeguarding against sags, surges, blackouts, or brownouts that could compromise the equipment’s effectiveness. In the event of a power outage, the Liebert GXT5 offers zero transfer time to batteries, filling any transfer time gap between the main power source and the backup generator and ensuring vaccines are continuously protected and that temperature is maintained at all times. An external battery connector is available for extended outage protection when generators are not available.

Local and remote monitoring makes it easy to keep tabs on system performance and battery health.

A user-friendly LCD interface and remote management capabilities via the web provides around-the-clock insight into UPS status for easy installation, configuration, and operation. Because a backup power solution is only as good as the batteries that support it, the Liebert GXT5 UPS provides battery health status and replacement date prediction, so you can intelligently manage the health of the batteries and proactively replace them. If there is ever a power problem or an issue with the equipment, specified personnel are instantly notified via email and text to help ensure a rapid response time.

Energy Star 2.0 certification promotes green operations and a better bottom line.

The Liebert GXT5 single-phase UPS operates with market-leading power efficiency for optimized energy management and lower heat dissipation. It provides superior protection for your freezers and vaccines with up to 98% efficiency in active ECO operating mode. The UPS never uses more power than it needs to do its critical job.
