ELECTRICAL and digital building infrastructure specialist, Legrand, has appointed Engineering Data Systems SA (EDS UPS) as its official uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems partners.
EDS UPS, with strong technical capabilities in servicing and supporting UPS systems locally and throughout Southern Africa, is now authorised to supply, install and commission single phase and three phase Legrand UPS systems.
According to Legrand, dependable tier level 1 UPS support – such as downtime responses, critical alarm remediation and the back-up of reliable spares – is an essential requirement for continued operations in many industries. Typical sectors include mining, healthcare, banking and hospitality, as well as data centres and small and medium enterprise servers.
This partnership, which outsources the service sector in line with Legrand’s global business model, boosts the recent launch of Legrand Data Centre Solutions, encompassing the supply and support of specialist products, including LCS, busbar, transformers and now UPS systems.
“Legrand’s commitment to ongoing investment – not just in the South African economy, but also to nurturing specialised installation partners – addresses key strategic verticals of the Legrand Group,” the company said in a statement.
It added that its “extensive range of UPS systems ensure maximum continuity of service of essential electrical equipment, by providing reliable performance in terms of power and back up time, particularly during electrical network disturbances like load-shedding”.
