APC's Back-UPS provides enough battery backup power so you can work through short and medium length power outages. It also safeguards your equipment against damaging surges and spikes that travel along utility, phone and networks lines. Along with the rest of its standard features, like compatibility with our auto-shutdown software, the Back-UPS 550 is the perfect unit to protect your productivity from the constant threat of bad power and lost data.

Battery Backup & Surge Protected Outlets keep a computer, monitor and other critical devices running when the power goes out or fluctuates outside safe levels.

Surge Only Outlets protect printers, faxes or other non-critical devices without reducing battery capacity.
