Emergency battery backup and surge
suppression for your entire system
Computer users fall into two groups: those who have lost data due to power problems and those
who are going to. The more you use your computer, the sooner you’ll have to pay for that loss.
Power problems wreak havoc on today’s multitasking networked or stand-alone PCs. The more
you do with your PC, the more you stand to lose.
According to a study by IBM, your system is subject to an average of 128 power disturbances per month; these range from surges and spikes, which can cause hardware damage, to sags, brownouts, and complete blackouts, which can cause data loss. In fact
48.5% of all instances of data loss is attributed to power events.
The effects of power problems include keyboard lockup, complete data loss, hardware
degradation, damaged motherboards, and more, making downtime inevitable. An
APC Back-UPS instantly switches your computer to emergency battery backup power
and allows you to work through brief power outages without data loss or downtime.
APC UPS units also give you the time to save files and shut down your computer safely in the event of an
extended power failure. High-performance surge suppression protects your computer from electrical noise
and damaging power surges - even lightning.

Value Power Protection for Network
Clients and Home Systems
APC Back-UPS 200 and APC Back-UPS 300 are
the most reliable and cost-effective way to increase
your system’s lifespan and productivity. You get
plenty of runtime to ride through momentary outages or to shut down your system in the event of an
extended outage. You’ll get outlets for your computer and monitor and a compact design to conserve
valuable work space. One switch controls power to
all connected equipment, for easy system control.
Complete System Protection for
Network Clients and Home Systems
If you need more runtime and more advanced
features, try the more powerful APC Back-UPS 500
or APC Back-UPS 650. Both models come with a
FREE mail-in offer for PowerChute plus, APC’s
award-winning data-saving, automatic system
shutdown software. They also include Multipath
protection: enough outlets to protect your entire
system, plus fax/modem line protection to stop
surges on datalines.
Multiple Workstation Protection
If you want to protect more than one workstation
or PC with a single UPS, APC Back-UPS Pro 1000
or APC Back-UPS Pro 1400 will meet your needs.
Six battery power outlets let you protect up to
three workstations or PCs.
Windows NT and Windows 95
Performance System Protection
High-performance Windows 95 and Windows
NT computer systems create, store and transmit
data at ever-increasing rates. With this increase in
speed comes a parallel increase in the value of
both hardware and data. Cutting edge technology
demands the highest level of protection. APC’s
innovative CellGuard™ intelligent battery management, PowerChute plus advanced power management software, and Automatic Voltage Regulation,
make APC Back-UPS Pro the ideal choice for perfomance workstations or PCs. Visit www.apcc.com

“Best-In-Class” Longest Runtime
and Guaranteed Lightning
Protection
Although many measurements are used to determine UPS power and output, the best and clearest
way to size a UPS is with runtime. Runtime measures how long a UPS provides power during an
outage. If you don’t have enough power, your
computer will crash before safe shutdown, and
crashes mean lost data. If you don’t pay close
attention to runtime when choosing a UPS, you
won’t know you’re vulnerable until it’s too late.
The only way to eliminate the worry without
doing hours of homework is to depend on APC’s
“Best in Class” Longest Runtime guarantee.
APC also guarantees your equipment will be
safe from all power surges, including lightning.
This premium protection starts as soon as you
plug in your UPS. It tells you immediately if the
outlet is properly wired and gives you the peace
of mind of knowing that even if your equipment
suffers a direct lightning strike, you’re covered.
APC provides $25,000 in equipment protection
insurance for life (see ploicy for details).

“Must Have” Safety and Reliability Features
In order for a UPS to give you the peace of
mind and security you need, it must provide
certain fundamental features. Without these
the performance of your connected equipment could be seriously compromised. If
you depend on your computer, don’t go
without the following:
Site Wiring Fault Indicator
Your unit must be able to tell you if it is
going to provide the protection you need
based on existing building wiring. That’s
why every APC Back-UPS includes a Site
Wiring Fault Indicator which automatically
and immediately warns you of wiring problems like improper grounds that could cause
shocks or prevent the UPS from adequately
suppressing surges.
Easy Overload Recovery
UPS units are by definition designed to take
punishment. Like your fuse box at home, all
APC Back-UPS have a quick, easy push-button recovery circuit breaker instead of a
standard fuse, so there is no need to return
the unit to the factory for service! Whether
you’re hit by an overload or a short circuit,
with APC you’re quickly back in business.
Audible Alarms
Your UPS must actively let you know whenever there’s a problem. Because a UPS won’t
run forever on battery power, you need to
know when to save files and shut down. If
the unit is on battery, or if the battery is
low, or even if there is an overload condition, APC Back-UPS will let you know with
an audible alarm. If a UPS doesn’t tell you
what it’s doing, you may as well not have a
UPS at all.
“On Battery” Alarm
An intermittent Alarm signals when connected
equipment is running on battery power, alerting you to save data and close valuable files.
“Low Battery” Alarm
A continuous tone alarm signals low battery, reminding you to save data prior to
impending shutdown.
Overload Alarm
An overloaded UPS may not provide adequate runtime for you to save your files and
data in the event of a power failure. This
feature allows you to correct the overload to
ensure you receive the runtime you need.
User-renewable UPS System
Your UPS must be renewable. With normal
use, a UPS battery will last three to six
years. At the end of the battery’s life, the
APC Back-UPS renewable UPS system eliminates the need for factory service and loss
of protection by letting you replace batteries
for a fraction of the cost of a whole new
UPS. Battery Replacement Cartridges (available at www.apcc.com or see your local
dealer/distributor) provide eco-friendly recycling of your battery, meet all state and federal regulations for battery disposal and
provide a postage-paid container for you to
ship the used battery to APC.
