APC Smart-UPS Lithium-ion short-depth UPS 120V

APC certainty with total cost of ownership in mind

The world’s most popular network and server UPS now with Lithium-ion batteries

APC™ award-winning Smart-UPS™ is the most popular UPS in the world for servers, storage and network power protection. Smart-UPS provides availability and manageability to your network allowing you to focus on business growth instead of business downtime. Trusted to protect critical data and equipment from power problems by supplying clean and reliable network-grade power. Smart-UPS’s patented green mode provides high efficiency at low, medium and high load levels. This makes them ideal for multi-core or virtualized servers that have varying load consumption all while saving utility costs. Managed outlet groups allow segmented load control to power on or off your equipment in series, as well as load shedding to preserve battery power for critical connected equipment or reboot a hung device without impacting other equipment. Lithium-ion batteries provides 2X in battery life, better performance at higher temperatures and Total Cost of Ownership savings compared to valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries.
