APC’s Back-UPS Models Enter Market

Available in North America this quarter, the uninterruptible power supply system is specifically designed to protect SMBs from power outages.

APC by Schneider Electric, maker of integrated critical power and cooling services, has introduced its Back-UPS Pro models.
APC's Back-UPS Models Enter Market

The Back-UPS Pro is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system designed to protect home offices and SMBs from experiencing the inconvenience and expense caused by power outages. They feature the same power-saving outlets seen in APC’s smaller Back-UPS models, which automatically shut off power to unused peripherals, saving the user money contributed to unnecessary power draw. Additionally, the Back-UPS Pro models feature an LCD panel to provide utility indication and have automatic voltage regulation (AVR) bypass capabilities.†

“Uptime is absolutely critical for home offices and SMBs, which are often not protected from surges, spikes, and power loss,” explains APC senior vice president, home and business networks, Dave Johnson. “Poor power environments and outages could mean losing important data, crucial sales, and even an entire PC network.”

According to Johnson, the Back-UPS Pro guarantees availability for users, “eliminating the consequences and high costs caused by downtime.

APC Back-UPS Pro comes in a variety of models, offering from six to ten outlets and runtime from 92 to 164 minutes. Power-saving outlets are offered on all models to decrease energy usage of connected devices.

Non data-sensitive peripherals, like monitors, printers, and speakers, are connected to the controlled outlets, which automatically shut off whenever the computer, connected to a master outlet is turned off or goes into hibernation or sleep mode.

All Back-UPS Pro models come equipped with automatic voltage regulation (AVR). AVR instantly adjusts low and high voltages to safe levels so users can work during brownouts and over-voltage situations, saving the battery for power outages. These models also have power-saving AVR bypass capability, which is an ultra efficient electrical design that consumes less power during normal operations by automatically bypassing the transformer until needed, saving even more electricity during normal operating conditions.

Each Back-UPS Pro model comes equipped with an LCD panel enabling users to easily scroll through information about load, estimated runtime, input voltage, and other critical diagnostic and system information.

The Back-UPS Pro comes with easy-to-use PowerChute Personal Edition software, providing enhanced management of the UPS by supplying information about unit history, notification options, and power status. When installed, this file-saving, auto-shutdown software saves files and gracefully shutdowns a PC even when users are not around. All models come with a standard three-year warranty and Equipment Protection Policy, which covers properly connected equipment up to $150,000 (see policy for details).

Available in North America in Q2 2010, the APC Back-UPS Pro products carry an estimated retail price of $129.99 to $249.99.
