APC explains Back-UPS

APC by Schneider Electric, a global critical power and cooling services provider to industry leading product, software and systems for home, office, data centre and factory floor applications, has explained its offer of Back- Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

The regional director for Africa at APC by Schneider Electric, Mr. Carl Kleynhans, said that the product was introduced for those who would like to follow up on the Paralympics taking off this month of September.

As said by him, sports lovers should not allow themselves to be disqualified by power challenges.

“Don’t get disqualified by power problems! With the APC Back-UPS, you’ll get the gold medal from your friends and family,” he advised.

He said it is unthinkable to discover that one could be sitting comfortably with friends, family, drinks and snacks conveniently at hand and only a few minutes to go, as well as your favourite athlete looks like he’s going to make it to the podium against the odds, then the light goes off.

“At best, the time taken to reset your reception box and your high definition or plasma screen means it could all be over by the time service is restored. At worst, the effects of power outages or unreliable power quality could leave your sophisticated electronic equipment stretcher off for longer than the post-match celebrations,” he said.

Adding that the aforementioned incidence of power outages or diminished power quality is not unusual these days, and it is unfortunately more likely at times when lots of other people may be sitting on their sofa following the game as well.

“If you don’t trust Nigeria’s creaking power grid to get you to the land of the rising sun this August, then trust APC’s new generation of Back-UPS solutions. A UPS cuts in when the grid fails to deliver the quantity or quality of power needed to run your equipment.

APC, he pointed out, provides the most trusted range of home and small office UPSes in the world and the easy to use range includes options for all types of Kleynhans noted that the APC Back-UPS range has received accolades from influential consumer IT publications for its reliability, its ease of use, its versatility across many types of equipment and its value for money.

“The HS range has been developed to cater for the specific needs of home technology and the RS range for equipment operating in poor power areas, or which requires extended back-up periods,” he explained.
