Schneider Electric has introduced a new line of APC by Schneider Electric Back-UPS battery backup solutions designed to deliver reliable and secure power protection for wireless networks, computers and other home and business electronics to help customers stay connected, productive and entertained.
In today’s always-on culture, connectivity to smartphones, wearable tech, smart devices and the internet has become essential to consumers’ everyday lives. Without a reliable and continuous supply of power, technology can’t function, leaving consumers disconnected from the digital world. 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
The Back-UPS’ new compact design delivers more battery backup outlets in less space – up to 22 per cent smaller in size and nearly 30 per cent lighter in weight – allowing customers to power as many as six devices during a power outage, compared to four devices as with previous models. Additionally, the new models include up to two USB charging ports to make recharging mobile devices simple and convenient during power emergencies.
To keep customers connected longer and protect critical equipment and data, UPS runtime has been maximized for heavy power-consuming loads such as multiple PCs and AV equipment powering up to 480 watts. The new models have also been optimized 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.
Considering these improvements over previous models, Schneider Electric is still able to deliver these enhanced models at no additional cost to customers.
