Why is this UPS a Good Investment?
The success of your organization depends on critical information systems
like servers and network hardware. If your critical systems don't have
reliable power, employees can't work, communications go down, automated
systems malfunction and productivity grinds to a halt. It would be nice
if utility power was always reliable, but it isn't. Between severe
weather, the aging electrical grid and hazards lurking inside your own
walls, your servers and network hardware are under attack from power
problems. Even a brief loss of power or a momentary surge can damage
your equipment, corrupt your data, bring down your network and hurt your
The potential costs of downtime are alarming. Surveyed averages range
from $1,167 per minute for mid-size businesses (IDC) to $7,908 per
minute for larger operations (Ponemon Institute). For a tiny fraction of
these costs, you can prevent damage, downtime and data loss by
installing this SmartOnline UPS system. True on-line double conversion
is the highest level of power protection available. It provides precise
voltage regulation, delivers continuous sine wave output and isolates
equipment from power problems.

Expandable Battery Backup
Half-Load Runtime: This UPS system will support a 50% load (600W) for up to 14minutes using the included batteries.
Extended Runtime: This UPS system allows you to
connect one or more optional external battery packs to provide
additional backup runtime. Some external battery packs can also be
daisy-chained, allowing you to scale runtime to match almost any
Hot-Swappable Batteries: You can add or replace batteries without turning off the UPS system and disrupting the operation of connected equipment.
On-Line, Double-Conversion Operation
This UPS system provides the highest level of power protection available:
Continuous on-line, double-conversion operation provides precise
voltage regulation and sine wave output. It isolates connected
equipment from most power problems, including blackouts, brownouts,
overvoltages, transient voltages surges, electromagnetic (EMI/RFI) line
noise, harmonic distortion, electrical impulses and frequency
Zero transfer time to battery prevents malfunctions and reboots
of sensitive equipment potentially caused by the transition from line
power to battery-derived power during outages.
Fault-tolerant automatic bypass maintains utility output and avoids downtime during a variety of fault and overload conditions.
Flexible Management Options
There are several ways to manage this UPS system:
Use the front-panel LEDs for convenient local management.
Use the USB port with your computer's built-in power management features.
Use the USB or serial port with your computer and Tripp Lite's
PowerAlert® software. PowerAlert provides enhanced features like
automatic file saves, event notification, logging, advanced device
control and an SNMP agent that supports centralized management. Select
UPS models include a convenient CD-ROM, or you can download the latest
version of PowerAlert for free at Tripp Lite's website.
Install an optional network card to enable standalone network
management via SNMP, Web, SSH or telnet. The network card has an
Ethernet port and embedded interface, allowing you to access advanced
monitoring, control and notification features without directly
connecting the UPS system to a computer. The network card also supports
connecting one or more optional sensors for remote temperature,
humidity and contact closure monitoring. (Available network cards and
sensors include TLNETCARD with TLNETEM sensor; WEBCARDLX with E2MT,
E2MTDO, E2MTDI and E2MTHDI sensors; and SNMPWEBCARD with ENVIROSENSE
sensor. Refer to each model for specific features.)
This UPS system also has two switched outlet banks, allowing you to
reboot locked devices remotely or turn off nonessential loads during
extended outages to provide additional runtime.
LED Control Panel
Intuitive multicolor LEDs display a variety of helpful and important information:
During an outage, the battery meter displays the percentage level of battery charge remaining.
During normal operation, the load meter displays the equipment load as a percentage of maximum capacity.
Other diagnostic LEDs indicate UPS system operational status,
including normal on-line operation, economy mode operation, bypass
operation (due to fault or overload) or on-battery operation (due to a
blackout or severe brownout). They also display several fault and
Economy Mode: This UPS system provides
user-selectable economy mode operation to increase efficiency and cut
operating costs. In economy mode, the UPS system suspends double
conversion and operates with increased efficiency as long as input power
quality is satisfactory. If input power quality becomes unsatisfactory,
the UPS system immediately resumes double conversion until power
quality returns to normal.
User-Replaceable Battery: This UPS system has a user-replaceable, recyclable battery, allowing it to remain in service instead of going to a landfill.
RoHS Compliance: This UPS system complies with
the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive, limiting the
use of hazardous substances in manufacturing.
