Quicklinx: 7GWDWS00 Mfr#: SMT1500RMI2U


APC award-winning Smart-UPS is the most popular UPS in the world for servers, storage and networks.

Trusted to protect critical data and equipment from power problems by supplying clean and reliable network-grade power. In addition to legendary reliability and manageability, Smart-UPS have extremely high efficiency at low, medium and high load levels making them ideal for today's multi-core or virtualized servers that have varying load consumption.

Rack mounted Smart-UPS are ideal for powering blade or density optimized servers in a distributed power protection environment as the primary or redundant protection. Smart-UPS features a 16-segment LED display, extended range automatic voltage regulation (AVR), and pure sine wave output on battery.

  1. Alphanumeric LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) Intuitive interface provides detailed and accurate information with the ability to configure locally.

  2. Communication Ports: Serial, USB, and SmartSlot™ for accessory cards.

  3. 4 IEC320 C13 Outlets

  4. Push Button Circuit Breaker enables quick recovery from overloads.

  5. Network-grade Power: Provides most stable power conditions by filtering noise, automatic voltage regulation (AVR), and surge protection.

  6. High Efficiency Green Mode: Saves utility costs and reduces heat promoting longer component life.

  7. Advanced Battery Management: Temperature-compensated charging extends life and advanced algorithms recommend replacement date
