In today's always-on culture, connectivity to smartphones, wearable tech, smart devices and the internet has become essential to our everyday lives. Without a reliable and continuous supply of power, technology can't function, leaving consumers disconnected from the digital world. APC by Schneider Electric's line of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) provide battery backup to valuable electronic devices during power outages and unsafe voltage fluctuations, as well as protection from damaging surges and spikes.
New functionality designed with customers in mind
Up to 22% smaller in size and nearly 30% lighter in weight the Back-UPS has a new compact design which delivers more battery backup outlets in less space allowing customers to power as many as 6 devices during a power outage, compared to 4 devices as with previous models. In addition, the new models include up to 2 USB charging ports enabling simple and convenient recharging of mobile devices during power emergencies.
UPS runtime has been maximised for heavy power-consuming loads such as multiple PCs and AV equipment powering up to 480 watts and the new models have also been optimised to run low-powered loads like routers and modems, allowing internet access during an extended power outage for up to 5.9 hours, depending on the model.
"Consumers' dependency on connectivity continues to grow as electronics, smart devices and the home network become increasingly important for both entertainment and work. Defending the digital experience through reliable backup power is essential to everyday life," said Colin Campbell, Vice President, Home & Business Networks, Schneider Electric. "Based on direct feedback from our customers, we've redesigned our Back-UPS line to deliver the most reliable backup power protection to ensure customers can stay connected to the technologies that power their lives at all times."
