The APC Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is designed to prevent blackouts, brownouts, sags, and surges from reaching your computer and other valuable electronic equipment. The UPS filters small utility line fluctuations and isolates your equipment from large disturbances by internally disconnecting from the utility line. The UPS provides continuous power from its internal battery until the utility line returns to safe levels or the battery is discharged.
Read the Safety Instruction sheet before installing the UPS.
Inspect the UPS upon receipt. APC designed robust packaging for your product. However, accidents and damage may occur during shipment. Notify the carrier and dealer if there is damage.
The packaging is recyclable; save it for reuse or dispose of it properly.
Check the package contents. The package contains the UPS, the front bezel, a literature kit containing one CD, one serial cable, one USB cable, product documentation and Safety Information. The package also includes rails, brackets, and a hardware packet, (necessary for rack mounting the UPS).
