Top 3 APC UPS categories and advantages
What is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS)?
An uninterruptible power supply or UPS secures and protects the power supply for connected electronic systems in the event of a power failure. Power fluctuations and power failures become a problem when it comes to the 100% availability of PCs, NAS or home entertainment systems. Not only can important data be lost due to a power failure; In addition, dangerous voltage peaks can occur which are harmful to any electrical device. For this reason, a UPS is particularly important in many areas.
How does a UPS work?
IT has become very important not only in the commercial sector, but also in the private sector. The ever increasing digitization also requires a higher electricity demand. For this reason, the use of UPS is not only more important but also increasingly complex, because power fluctuations or even a complete power failure not only means that important data is lost, but errors on data media or hard drives can also occur.
However, the higher the devices are developed in the IT area, the more sensitive and sensitive they become to power fluctuations and power failures. As soon as there is a short circuit, the UPS jumps in within a few milliseconds and supplies all devices connected to it with the help of the high-performance battery. As soon as the power is available again, the UPS ends its power supply and then recharges the integrated battery. In this way, the UPS can not only be the rescuer in the event of a complete power failure, but also in the event of power fluctuations and even the effects of lightning strikes.
About APC UPS
American Power Conversion Corporation (APC) is the leading national and international manufacturer of state-of-the-art uninterruptible power supplies, redundant switches, power management software, and related equipment. APC products protect hardware, software, and data from the threat of power disturbances in business and government offices throughout the world.
The APC Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is designed to prevent blackouts, brownouts, sags,
and surges from reaching your computer and other valuable electronic equipment. The UPS filters
out small utility line fluctuations and isolates your equipment from large disturbances by internally
disconnecting from the utility line. The UPS provides continuous power from its internal battery until
the utility line returns to safe levels.
In addition to racks, cooling solutions, storage products and power generators, APC also offers UPS devices in various categories in its extensive product range. The UPS category consists of the Back-UPS series for computers and workstations as well as the Smart-UPS products for servers and network solutions. In addition, APC also offers the Symmetra product range. This is suitable for everyone who is looking for UPS solutions with a high level of redundancy.
Depending on the selected series, you can choose from several models with different VA. APC offers a list on its website from which the desired workload can be selected. This list specifies both the nominal power in watts and the apparent power in VA. With comprehensive software, the APC UPS can also be managed and operated easily and conveniently via a network.
Battery Backup & Surge Protector for Electronics and Computers: The Back-UPS battery backup offers guaranteed power and surge protection for wireless networks, computers, gaming consoles and other electronics in your home or business. Models supply battery backup during outages and unsafe voltage fluctuations, as well as provide protection from damaging surges and spikes. They’re available in ‘tower’ or ‘floor’ styles, and together with a variety of standard features, they are the perfect choice to protect your data and keep you connected.
Intelligent and efficient network power protection from entry level to scaleable runtime. Ideal UPS for servers, point-of-sale, routers, switches, hubs and other network devices: Smart-UPS™ are trusted by millions of IT professionals throughout the world to protect equipment and critical data from costly interruptions by supplying reliable, network-grade power reliably and efficiently.
Available in a variety of forms factors and classes (entry level, standard and extended run), there is a model for nearly every application and budget. Standard models are the most popular UPS in the world for business servers, storage and network devices and have long been considered the benchmark for reliability and manageability. Entry level Smart-UPS models are an economical choice for small and medium businesses looking to protect small networking devices, point-of-sale (POS) equipment and entry level servers. The extended run models accept external battery packs for long runtime to power critical servers, security and communication systems through outages that could last hours.
Highly available single phase UPS features redundant and scalable double-conversion on-line power protection: Engineered to deliver the highest level of business continuity possible, Symmetra’s modular, redundant architecture can scale power and run time as demand increases or when higher levels of availability are required. Integrated network manageability provides real time status updates of UPS health and environmental conditions. Hot-swappable, user replaceable power, battery, and intelligence modules enables low MTTR and ease of service. Symmetra’s modular design provides redundant power in a single chassis for business-critical applications in server rooms and network closets.
