APC introduces protection for desktops

Leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, APC by Schneider Electric, has announced the introduction of its high performance protection for desktop computers, namely APC Back-UPS RS 650VA and 1100VA.

These new units, the company said, offer four power outlets in proven product design with 390 or 660 watts of power, extensive runtime and Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) technology.

Manager, English Speaking Area and Service Centre West and Central Africa and Indian Ocean at APC, Mr. Paul-Marie Dable, said that the firm would continue to make great strides in the advancement of APC’s Back-UPS family to meet the evolving needs of power customers.

Today’s business desktops, he said, are highly configured with several peripherals and higher power and runtime requirements, thus users are looking out for cost-effective, reliable solutions for protecting their hardware and more importantly their data on their desktops.

He said that the Back-UPS RS 650 and 1100 offer high performance protection for home and business computer systems.

“These new units provide abundant battery backup power, allowing users to work through medium and extended power outages with runtimes of up to 46 minutes (BR650CI) and 84 minutes (BR1100CI), depending on the units’ load. The units’ AVR feature enables users to work through just about any power condition by supplying safe, consistent power to the computer in case of over-voltage or brownout conditions, without running on battery,” he said.

Dable outlined four outlets, three with battery backup and surge and one with surge protection only, the Back-UPS RS also safeguards equipment from damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility and phone lines.

“APC’s new Back-UPS RS 650 and 1100 units are currently available through all distribution channels including retail, catalogues, resellers and online,” he said.
