New APC by Schneider Electric Back-UPS

Innovative UPS design offers hours of runtime for critical network devices, providing internet access during outages and emergencies.

Schneider Electric has introduced a new line of APC™ by Schneider Electric Back-UPS battery backup solutions designed to deliver reliable and secure power protection for wireless networks, computers, and other home and business electronics to help customers stay connected. Schneider Electric’s line of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) provide battery backup to valuable electronic devices during power outages and unsafe voltage fluctuations, as well as protection from damaging surges and spikes.

Additionally, the new models include up to two USB charging ports to make recharging mobile devices simple and convenient during power emergencies.

To keep customers connected longer and protect critical equipment and data, UPS runtime has been maximized for heavy power-consuming loads such as multiple PCs and AV equipment powering up to 480 watts. The new models have also been optimized to run low-powered loads like routers and modems, allowing internet access during an extended power outage for up to 5.9 hours, depending on the model.

Considering these improvements over previous models, Schneider Electric is still able to deliver these enhanced models at no additional cost to customers.

“Consumers’ dependency on connectivity continues to grow as electronics, smart devices and the home network become increasingly important for both entertainment and work. Defending the digital experience through reliable backup power is essential to everyday life,” said Colin Campbell, Vice President, Home & Business Networks, Schneider Electric. “Based on direct feedback from our customers, we’ve redesigned our Back-UPS line to deliver the most reliable backup power protection to ensure customers can stay connected to the technologies that power their lives at all times.”

The new Back-UPS models are now available. For more information on Schneider Electric’s APC Back-UPS product line, visit the APC Back-UPS web page.
