MGE UPS Systems

While I still have a bunch of MGE Comet systems running, we did take one electrical room and replace them with Symmetra PX's,  It did require some conduit work as they were moved from the wall to the center (but they are not as deep as a Comet) , to give the required cleareances. These are not your typical bottom of the rack units (although they come in their own racks). We have them equipped for 125KVA

Love the Comet's, I would check with APC regarding product lifecycle.

I'm curious if anyone might know what the future of the MGE line of UPS
systems are. My concern is that they're dead-end since being merged into
APC, and APC wanting to sell me APC stuff. The problem I face is that my
facility was designed with separate equipment spaces, which is great for
normal electrical gear that can be backed against a wall, but not so
great for a product which is designed for the "everything goes in with
your racks" mindset. Any insight would be appreciated.
