UPS offers standby protection for PCs and peripherals to prevent data loss and system downtime by providing battery-supported AC output during brownouts and blackouts. 12 widely spaced output receptacles in a compact, mountable housing accommodate large transformer plugs without blocking outlets. Six outlets provide full battery support and surge suppression. Six additional surge suppression-only outlets are ideal for accessories not requiring battery support. Single-line telephone suppression jacks protect directly connected modems, fax machines, cordless phones or other peripherals sharing a standard dialup or DSL phone line connection. USB communications interface with PowerAlert monitoring software (via web download) and cabling allows a safe, unattended system shutdown. Audible alarm and front panel LEDs offer status information regarding line and battery power operation. 900VA/480W power handling ability supports entry-level PCs for up to 45 minutes during power failures.
