UPS for a corrosive environment?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 5/21/2009


Hello,

Can you tell me if one of the following 20kVA UPS can support a corrosive, high relative humidity environment?
[SURT20KRMXLI|http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SURT20KRMXLI&total_watts=50&ISOCount...]
[SUVTP20KH3B4|http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SUVTP20KH3B4&total_watts=4000&ISOCou...]

Or maybe a MGE Galaxy (20kVA, three phase 380Vac, 400Vac)

Thanks,

HA

Hi,

Actually yes, it is required UL certification but I'm not sure if the UL certification is enough to assure that the UPS can support hostile (corrosive) environment.

Greetings,

i just meant to ask if you know that a piece of equipment that can be put in a corrosive environment pertains to a certain standard so then i could see if any of APC's UPS meet that standard.

all of the UPSs are UL 1449 rated i believe but there are other standards like UL509a for instance which pertains to outdoor use, etc..maybe this type of environment has a standard that goes along with it?
