April 8, 2013 Schneider Electric IT Business India Pvt. Ltd. has announced the launch of the 3-Phase Smart-UPS VT with hot swappable batteries for small and medium businesses in India. The Smart-UPS VT features a 3-Phase Power Protection unit and is designed keeping in mind Indian usage conditions specifically, with features like hot swappable batteries and pull out and swappable power modules.

The swappable power module comes with a unique slide in/out concept that makes it easy to replace the entire module.
