Why is this UPS a Good Investment?

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 equipment is under constant attack from power problems. Even a brief loss of power or a momentary surge can ruin your equipment and destroy irreplaceable data.

Some costs, such as replacing broken computers and redoing work, can be measured. Other costs, such as losing family photos and missing business opportunities, are harder to quantify. For a fraction of these costs, you can prevent damage, downtime and data loss by installing this UPS system. It conditions incoming AC power, provides enough battery backup to outlast most outages and automatically saves open files and shuts down computers gracefully during extended blackouts.

Reliable Battery Backup

  • Half-Load Runtime: This UPS system will support a 50% load (450 W) for up to 11.8 minutes.
  • Hot-Swappable Batteries:The internal batteries can be replaced without turning off the UPS system and disrupting the operation of connected equipment.

AVR and Surge/Noise Protection

In locations with chronic voltage problems, frequent switching to battery drains reserve power and shortens battery life. This UPS system has a feature called automatic voltage regulation (AVR) that solves the problem. The UPS detects when input voltage is out of bounds and corrects it without using the battery.

All Tripp Lite UPS systems also include built-in surge protection and noise filtering to shield your equipment from destructive transient voltages and electromagnetic (EMI/RFI) line noise.

Data Line Surge Protection

Data lines connected to your equipment represent an unlocked "back door," allowing surges to enter and damage or destroy sensitive electronic components. In addition to protecting against surges on the AC power line, this UPS system protects your equipment against surges on connected phone and network lines.
  • The RJ45 jacks protect a phone, analog modem, DSL modem or Ethernet network line.

Illuminated LCD Screen

The illuminated LCD screen shows a variety of helpful data, including input voltage, battery capacity, power status, battery status and AVR status. You can adjust the brightness of the LCD backlight and rotate the LCD to match the orientation of the UPS system.

Flexible Management Options

There are three ways to manage this UPS system:
  1. Use the LCD screen.
  2. Use the HID-compliant USB port and your computer's built-in power management features.
  3. Use the USB or serial port with Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert® software.
PowerAlert provides enhanced features like automatic file saves, event notification, logging, advanced device control and a web accessory card that supports centralized management. You can download the latest version of PowerAlert at Tripp Lite's website.

Eco-Friendly Design

  • User-Replaceable Battery: This UPS system has user-replaceable, recyclable batteries, allowing materials to be reprocessed 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.
