  • Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown
    Automatically starts up the connected equipment upon the return of utility power.
  • Automatic self-test
    Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging
    Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
  • Power conditioning
    Protects connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances.
  • Intelligent battery management
    Maximises battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • Boost and Trim Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
    Gives higher application availability by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery.

High efficiency and intelligent battery management

The patented green operating mode achieves efficiencies over 97%. Smart-UPS was the first network UPS to be Energy Star certified. Intelligent battery management, pioneered by APC, maximises battery performance and life through intelligent, precision temperature compensated charging. Dynamic battery replacement date indicator and automatic self tests ensure battery reliability and warn in advance of needing replacement.
