  • Auto recognition of external batteries UPS recognizes when external battery packs are attached and automatically adjusts runtime.
  • Cold-start capable Provides temporary battery power when the utility power is out.
  • Energy meter Provides actual kilowatt hours of usage for energy conscious users.
  • EPO Attach the device to an Emergency Power Off (EPO) system so that power can be turned off in an emergency situation.
  • Green mode Patent-pending operating mode that bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high operating efficiency without sacrificing any protection.
  • High frequency design Reduces or eliminates bulky transformers resulting in lighter units for ease of handling.
  • High online efficiency Reduces utility costs, generates less heat.
  • Intuitive LCD interface Provides clear and accurate information in multiple languages with the ability to configure the UPS locally with easy to use navigation keys.
  • Multiple switched outlet groups Multiple outlet groups that may be controlled separately from the UPS for discrete reboot of hung devices, sequenced on/off and non-critical load shedding.
  • Plug-and-Play external batteries Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to the loads when adding extra runtime to the UPS.
  • Predictive replace battery date Dynamically provides the month and year when battery replacement is recommended to aide in long term maintenance planning.
  • Preinstalled network management card Provides for remote management and control of the UPS over a network out of the box.
  • Pure sine wave output on battery Simulates utility power to provide the highest degree of compatibility for active PFC (power factor corrected) servers and sensitive electronics.
  • Rack/Tower convertible Protects the initial investment in the UPS when migrating from tower to rack-mount environment.
  • Remote UPS management Enable management of your UPS by connecting it directly to the network.
  • Scalable runtime Allows additional run time to be quickly added as needed.
  • SmartSlot Customize UPS capabilities with management cards.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.

Smart-UPS Features & Benefits

  • Boost and Trim Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) Gives higher application availability by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery (not available on all models).
  • Disconnected battery notification Warns when a battery is not available to provide backup power.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
  • Power conditioning Protects connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances.
  • Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown Automatically starts up the connected equipment upon the return of utility power.
  • Intelligent battery management Maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • Automatic self-test Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.


  • Battery failure notification Provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries enabling timely preventive maintenance
  • Predictive failure notification. Provides early-warning fault analysis ensuring proactive component replacement.
  • Hot-swappable batteries Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced
  • User-replaceable batteries Increases availability by allowing a trained user to perform upgrades and replacements of the batteries reducing Mean Time to Repair (MTTR)
  • Resettable circuit breakers Enables a quick recovery from overload events.


  • Adjustable voltage-transfer points Maximizes useful battery life by widening the input voltage window or tightening the output voltage regulation.
  • Adjustable voltage sensitivity Provides the ability to adapt the UPS for optimal performance in specific power environments or generator applications.


  • Safety-agency approved Ensures the product has been tested and approved to work safely with the connected service provider equipment and within the specified environment.
  • Manageability Audible alarms Provides notification of changing utility power and UPS conditions.
  • USB connectivity Provides management of the UPS via a USB port (not available on all models).
  • Serial connectivity Provides management of the UPS via a serial port.
  • Network manageable Provides remote power management of the UPS over the network.
  • LED status indicators Quickly understand unit and power status with visual indicators.

Marketing features

Smarter productivity with ability to tailor to your specific application needs

Intuitive LCD interface provides clear information with the ability to configure the UPS locally with easy to use navigation keys. Over 15 different programmable settings including switched outlet group control allow for application specific settings, thresholds and notifications. Save time with easy and convenient remote accessibility Network manageable via serial, USB or optional ethernet. Includes Powerchute® Business Edition Software for convenient monitoring and control, safe operating system shutdown and innovative energy management capabilities.

Low operating and maintenance costs with high efficiency, proven reliability and intelligent battery management

Patented green operating mode achieves efficiencies over 97%. Smart-ups was the first network UPS to be Energy Star certified. Intelligent battery management, pioneered by APC, maximizes battery performance and life through intelligent, precision temperature compensated charging. Dynamic battery replacement date indicator and automatic self tests insure battery reliability and warn in advance of needing replacement. Convenient, easy to connect, hot-swappable battery modules provide battery replacement without powering down. Designed and manufactured by APC for over 23 years, Smart-UPS is the world’s most trusted network UPS with over 25 million units sold.

Avoids costly power problems by keeping your IT equipment and data safe and available

Network grade power conditioning protects from damaging surges and disruptive noise. Solid state automatic voltage regulation boosts low input voltage up to 30% and trims high voltage up to 12% without battery operation. Reliable battery back-up capacity to power through outages or gracefully shutdown systems

Peace of mind that comes with full equipment compatibility and reliability of a leader

Provides pure sine wave output which is recommended by server manufacturers using active power factor corrected (PFC) power supplies. Safety agency tested and approved means that you can deploy Smart-UPS with confidence that they meet or exceed the industry’s most rigorous standards.
