MGE UPS Systems Inc. (Costa Mesa, CA), a developer of high-availability power solutions, announced that its Galaxy 4000 Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) and power-protected Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) midspan solution were selected as finalists in the power quality and voice-data-video categories, respectively, for the Electrical Contracting Products 2005 INNOVATION Awards. The INNOVATION Awards honor outstanding companies whose products and services have best responded to electrical contractors'¢ market challenges.

"We're honored that the electrical contracting community continues to recognize MGE for its innovative, easy-to-use, and cost-effective power solutions," said MGE Vice President of Sales and Marketing Mike Chmura. "These awards further underscore our commitment to delivering the highest quality products, such as the Galaxy 4000 UPS and PoE midspan, to meet customers' needs across a wide range of power-critical applications, including the special requirements of next-generation infrastructure."

The online, double-conversion Galaxy 4000 -- available in power ratings of 40 kVA, 50 kVA, 65 kVA, and 75 kVA -- is designed to meet the power demands of critical data center and industrial facilities. Featuring digital power quality management for precision voltage regulation along with advanced IGBT technology that eliminates damaging input harmonics, the Galaxy 4000 is able to improve input power quality, which increases reliability and reduces costs.

The winners of the 2005 INNOVATION Awards will be announced at an awards ceremony September 18, 2005, at the National Electrical Contractors Association's Show in New Orleans, LA.
