Performance power protection
for servers and networks
Complete Power Protection
Reliability—Availability—Manageability: The three essential requirements when choosing power protection for your systems.
Reliability—The UPS design consistently delivers dependable performance through a combination of form,
function and features. Your hardware is protected and your system life extended through features like
full-time multi-stage surge suppression and noise filtering, network-grade line conditioning, proactive notification of problems and automatic shutdown during extended outages.
Availability—The UPS provides reliable power minimizing downtime. Availability increases
when: the unit can operate through a greater range of input voltage; the batteries are easily
accessible and user-serviceable and the unit provides information concerning problems and
automatically takes action to keep systems available. Availability is increased by adding accessories which enhance network performance by rebooting hung devices, initiating shutdowns
in the event of abnormal environmental conditions and provides notification of these actions.
Manageability—The UPS’s control and status are available both in-band and out-of-band,
allowing as much control as desired. The degree of manageability is directly related to users’
customized parameters and notifications, through hardware and software features.
Manageability is critical to the overall performance of the network and attached equipment.
Requiring Reliability, Availability and Manageability ensures that your power protection
solution is dependable, accessible and flexible, minimizing downtime, saving time and money and increasing overall customer satisfaction.
Line-interactive design delivers unmatched performance
and reliability
Innovative line-interactive design uses the DC to AC power inverter “in
reverse,” like a battery charger, during normal operation providing
greater performance and efficiency.
Sine-wave output
APC Smart-UPS sine-wave output provides assurance of compatibility
with all loads.
(Does not apply to SU420INET/SU620INET models)
Network-grade line conditioning prevents glitches
Full time EMI/RFI filters prevent line noise from causing data errors.
Smart-UPS meets Novell and Microsoft’s approval for network protection, without the need for additional external conditioners.
Lightning and surge protection shields hardware
When measured via ANSI/IEEE 587 Category “A” and “B” tests, the
suppression performance of the APC Smart-UPS is superior to virtually
all separate surge suppressors.
Pre-failure diagnostics
Smart-UPS continuously monitors its health and proactively informs you
of the results via Web, SNMP, E-mail or paging.
Automatic self-test
All APC Smart-UPS initiate a self-test at power-on and every 2 weeks, at the
push of a button, or pre-determined times using software. This ensures that
you will be alerted to degraded batteries before they wear out.

Graceful, unattended shutdown
In the event of an extended power outage, an APC Smart-UPS will interface with PowerChute plus via the serial port to perform automatic safe
shutdown of the attached system. Power failures can occur at night, on
weekends, or while the system administrator is out of the building,
which makes automatic safe shutdown critical. Smart-UPS provides
extensive unattended safe shutdown of many operating systems when
the UPS runs out of battery power, including Microsoft Windows 95/98,
Windows NT/2000, Novell NetWare, SCO Unix, Red Hat, SuSE, Caldera,
and TurboLinux (other OSs available separately). By using PowerChute
plus software you can manage and diagnose power problems.
•Safely shutdown a single server via serial cable
The Smart-UPS communications port provides the coordination of
a safe shutdown with most popular operating systems by
Microsoft, Novell, HP, IBM, Sun, SCO, Linux, and others.
• Safely shut down multiple servers via serial cable
APC has several solutions to shut down multiple servers. The
2-Port Interface Expander Card (AP9607) provides two additional ports. The 8-Port Interface Expander (AP9207) provides a total
of eight ports and can be daisy-chained to provide 15 ports. Both
accessories facilitate graceful system shutdown via dependable
hardwire connections and allow advanced UPS management.
The units are ideal for “server farms” or multiple operating
system environments.
•Safely shutdown multiple servers via network connection
APC PowerChute network shutdown software communicates
across the network with Smart-UPS equipped with APC
Web/SNMP card to provide reliable, graceful unattended shutdown of multiple computer systems over the network.

Take Action
The built-in SmartSlot bay gives Smart-UPS the ability to take necessary
actions to reboot “hung” devices, giving you availability when you
need it most.
•Reboot hung servers and networking equipment remotely using
modem (out-of-band) with the Out-of-Band Management card (AP9608).
•Reboot hung servers via Web, SNMP, or Telnet (in band) using
the Web/SNMP Management card (AP9606 or AP9603).
Intelligent Battery Management
•Reboot hung servers and networking equipment in and out-ofband using the MasterSwitch Plus (AP9255 or AP9225EXP).
CellGuard means longer battery life
Improved reliability results from a precision battery charging system,
and automatic true-load battery tests. Redundant overcharge protection
contributes to longer battery life. AVR Boost and AVR Trim regulate
under- and overvoltages without switching to battery.
Battery Replacement Warning prevents downtime
APC Smart-UPS battery changing system
is microprocessor controlled to precisely
charge batteries in less time than legacy
UPS systems. This makes your system
available more quickly for subsequent
power disturbances.
Typical UPS battery recharge
time of 8-16 hours
Faster Recharge Time
APC Smart-UPS cut battery
recharge time by 75%
APC Smart-UPS battery
recharge time of 2-3 hours
APC Smart-UPS automatically performs a
self-test every two weeks. This ensures
you will be alerted to degraded batteries
before they wear out. Through software, or
the push of a button, you may perform selftests anytime.
Accessories Increase Availability
By adding APC accessory cards into the built-in SmartSlot™, you can monitor
power conditions and take action. The addition of the accessory cards
increases overall system availability by proactively notifying you of conditions
that could affect uptime. (Accessories sold separately and detailed on p. 15.)
Redundant Switch
Redundant Switch continuously monitors two AC circuits and automatically switches from the primary to the redundant power source,
increasing overall system availability. (See p. 16 for more information.)
ProtectNet increases the availability of your systems by protecting your
wiring and cabling from “back-door” surges and spikes, which cause
system downtime and equipment damage.
The 60 second, user friendly, hot-swappable
battery replacement system
Saves the time and expense of returning
the UPS to the factory for battery service,
and allows safe and easy replacement of
batteries while your system is up and running. Replacement battery kits ship in a
reusable box for convenient return of
exhausted batteries to a recycling center
or to APC.
