APC launch Back-UPS PRO range
New APC range provides power protection and management for home and office users
APC has announced the launch of its new Back-UPS Pro range of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for home office and office use.
The new line up includes models for different size of users, and include APC's power saving outlets which offer increased energy savings through shutting off power to inactive peripherals. With a device such as a PC connected to the master outlets on the UPS, non-data sensitive devices such as printers or scanners can be automatically shut down when the master controller is shut down, or goes into hibernation mode.
The range, which includes models six to ten outlets and runtime from 92 to 164 minutes, also features APC PowerChute Personal Edition software, which provides enhanced management of the UPS by supplying information about unit history, notification options and power status; an LCD panel to provide utility indication, and automatic voltage regulation (AVR) bypass capabilities to save energy and extend battery life.
Christian Bertrand, vice president, APC by Schneider Electric - ME & Turkey commented: "Uptime is absolutely critical for home offices and businesses, which are often not protected from surges, spikes and power loss. Poor power environments and outages could mean losing important data, crucial sales and even an entire PC network. The APC Back-UPS Pro guarantees the necessary availability for users to remain up and running to save their work or complete a transaction - eliminating the consequences and high costs caused by downtime. Typically, even if just one instance of downtime occurs, the unit will pay for itself."
The range will be available in Q2 this year.
