APC by Schneider Electric announced two new series of APC Smart-UPS models designed for use in server rooms and network closets. Based on more than 20 years of design experience, these uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) systems offer time-saving, user-friendly features like an LCD interface with diagnostic capabilities and advanced energy management that delivers clear and timely energy consumption metrics. In addition to providing superior data protection, the Smart-UPS systems’ ‘green’ mode can achieve efficiencies of more than 97-percent, for a utility and cooling savings averaging more than $25 per year versus most line-interactive UPS systems. Built on the same standards as the award-winning Smart-UPS family, the models include an intuitive, customizable LCD interface to provide local and remote configuration capabilities, accurate power status information, diagnostics, tests and activity logs. Information is clear and concise and displays everything from product serial number to APC support information in a multitude of languages. Additionally, APC Smart-UPS are the only units to offer advanced energy management to notify users of a recommended battery replacement date. This technology adjusts a battery’s lifetime based on environmental conditions to provide advanced notification.
