Tripp Lite by Eaton has introduced the SmartOnline online double-conversion UPS systems that occupy 1U of space in a rack, leaving room for other equipment in small- to medium-sized computer rooms and network closets.
The new 120V UPS systems deliver 1500VA or 2000VA of reliable online backup power. Online double-conversion technology maintains output by converting AC input to DC, then reconverting UPS output to fully regulated sine wave AC power. Zero transfer time to battery mode assures protection for even the most sensitive electronics.
“Previously, this level of power protection was available only with larger UPS systems that take up two or more rack units, limiting available space for critical equipment,” says Sami Hussaini, product manager, online UPS products. “These new 1U solutions give IT managers attractive options for critical site applications in smaller network closets, such as those frequently found in businesses and schools.”
These new 1U UPS systems contain a host of other features that make them robust backup solutions for servers and switches, phone systems, kiosks, high-end engineering systems, and professional AV computer systems.
Five outlets split into two switchable load banks allow for load shedding or rebooting of select components. A front-panel LCD details site power, UPS status, and operating data. RS-232 and HID-compliant USB ports connect to a computer running power management software, such as PowerAlert, which is available as a free download from tripplite.com. A network card slot accepts an optional HTML5-based WEBCARDLX (sold separately) that enables full remote access. These two new UPS systems are also ENERGY STAR certified, with an economy mode for enhanced efficiency and reduced BTU output when utility power is of high quality.
