  • This Smart-UPS® solution from APC® offers intelligent and highly 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. Additionally, it simulates utility power to provide the highest degree of compatibility for active PFC (power factor-corrected) servers and sensitive electronics.

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

    The flexibility of the SMX1000:
    Ideal for powering servers, routers, switches, and other networking devices, the SMX1000 is a 2U-high 1000-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 SMX1000 provides 800 W/1000 VA of output power capacity on eight NEMA 5-15R sockets. It features a multifunction LCD status and control console for clear, accurate information readout. Configure it locally with its easy-to-use navigation keys. You can also control it from a connected console via its RS-232 or USB port. It supports Emergency Power Off (EPO). You can even remotely manage it over a network and control it via the APC InfraStruXure Manager® platform.

    The SMX1000 also has energy-efficient features and is designed to reduced utility costs and generate less heat. Operating in Green mode, it bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions. This way, it achieves very high operating efficiency without sacrificing protection.

    What's more, the Smart-UPS has a built-in energy meter, which provides you with actual kilowatt hours of usage.

    The protection offered by the SMX1000:
    The SMX1000 boasts a surge energy rating of 600 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.

    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. The UPS recognizes when external battery packs are attached and automatically adjusts 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.
