  • Protects Electronic Equipment from Power Disruptions

    Keep your electronic equipment protected through blackouts, brownouts, surges, and other power disturbances with APC Smart-UPS. It provides generous runtime while on battery so you can continue working during medium-length power outages.

    Automatic voltage regulation (AVR) adjusts high and low voltages to a safe level, ensuring your equipment has reliable power and preserving the life of the battery. The pure sine wave output while on battery provides the highest degree of compatibility for active PFC (power factor corrected) servers and sensitive electronics.

    Power-Saving Green Mode Operates at High Efficiency

    Operate efficiently with the Smart-UPS green mode, conserving energy when power quality is within optimal levels and power conditioning is not necessary. The UPS will enter and exit green mode automatically, ensuring you are always operating at the highest efficiency while saving power, reducing utility costs, and generating less heat. To help you monitor your energy usage, this UPS has an energy meter that provides actual kilowatt-hours of usage.

    Battery Management Features Ensure Optimal Performance

    The Smart-UPS runs a periodic battery self-test, so you can be sure to detect any batteries that need to be replaced. It also notifies you when a battery is disconnected and not available to provide backup power. To prolong battery life, the Smart-UPS regulates the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
  • LCD Display Lets You Easily Read Utility Status

    Easily check the Smart-UPS status on the bright LCD panel. Status indicators include load capacity, battery charge level, and estimated run time in minutes when the UPS is operating on battery power.
