  • This Smart-UPS® solution from APC® offers intelligent and efficient power backup for your networking environment. Cold-start capable, it provides temporary battery power when your utility power goes out.

    By supplying clean and reliable network-grade power, the Smart-UPS enables you to keep critical data and equipment running during blackouts, brownouts, or other power anomalies. It takes over, providing reliable power and extended runtime to keep your systems on-line. When power returns, the Smart-UPS restarts the connected equipment automatically.

    Power conditioning protects connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances.

    Even better, it offers extended range automatic voltage regulation (AVR), and pure sine wave output on battery. AVR corrects both high- and low-voltage conditions without using the battery, so you have much higher application availability.

    With adjustable voltage sensitivity, the Smart-UPS can adapt itself to optimal performance in specific power environments or generator applications.

    The flexibility of the SMX1500RM2U:
    Ideal for powering servers, routers, switches, hubs and other networking devices, the SMX1500RM2U is a 2U-high 1500-VA rack/tower UPS—an excellent choice for blade or density-optimized servers. Mount it horizontally in a rack or stand it upright in a tower configuration.

    The SMX1500RM2U provides 1200 W/1500 VA of output power capacity on eight NEMA 5-15R sockets. It features a multi-function LCD status and control console and 16-segment LED display for clear, accurate information readout. Configure it locally with its easy-to-use navigation keys.

    In addition, it features front-panel RS-232 and USB ports for monitor and control from a connected console, and supports Emergency Power Off (EPO). You can even remotely manage it over a network and control it via the APC InfraStruXure Manager® platform.

    The protection offered by the SMX1500RM2U:
    The SMX1500RM2U boasts a surge energy rating of 645 joules, offers full-time multipole noise filtering (with 5% IEEE surge let-through and zero clamping response time), and meets UL® 1449 ratings. Resettable circuit breakers provide quick recovery from overload events. Audible alarms notify you of changing utility power and UPS conditions.

    It's extremely efficient at low, medium, and high load levels, making it particularly ideal for multicore or virtualized servers with varying load consumption. Control multiple outlet groups separately from the Smart-UPS and perform sequenced on/off and non-critical load shedding.

    An internal Smart-Slot interface enables you to install various accessory cards depending on your needs. In addition, you can install an external APC battery pack to support extra runtime.

    Batteries are hot-swappable, so you can ensure uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced. A periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced, and audible alarms alert you when a battery is running low.

    What's more, the Smart-UPS features intelligent, precision charging and temperature-compensated battery charging, which helps to prolong battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
