APC by Schneider Electric has expanded its power conditioning line of products with the release of the J25B and J35B battery backup solutions.
The J25B and J35B combine Electromagnetic Interference/Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI), surge protection, Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) and battery backup in one solution.
“Power surge protection is crucial in maintaining a safe home entertainment system and is a top-of-mind concern for our customers,” said APC senior vice president, Home and Business Networks, Dave Johnson. “The new APC J25B and J35B battery backups address consumers’ needs with an industry-first solution that provides comprehensive power protection in one easy to use product.”
In addition to the offerings incorporated in both J Type models, the APC J35B also features Automatic Voltage Regulation, which stabilizes unsafe voltage levels that can cause premature failure of sensitive components inside AV equipment. According to the company, units without AVR switch to battery power during unsafe voltage fluctuations, which can translate to a shorter battery life.
The APC J35B also provides users with power saving master and controlled outlets that detect when any TV or computer plugged into the master outlet is off or in standby mode—and as a result, shuts down power to connected components or peripherals.
