The CEN-UPS1250 is a 1250 Watt, 120 Volt uninterruptible power supply and
power conditioner Engineered by APC® specifically for Crestron. Designed to
protect Crestron® control systems, media servers, video displays and other
devices, the CEN-UPS1250 employs pure sine wave battery backup to maintain
continuous operation of critical components whenever power is disrupted. Remote
monitoring and control through Crestron’s award-winning RoomView® software,
and full 2-Series control system integration, deliver a comprehensive power
management and protection solution that’s an integral part of the complete
Crestron control network.
performance. Using automatic voltage regulation, the CEN-UPS1250 can correct
for many high and low voltage fluctuations without having to switch to battery
operation, preserving battery fuel for more serious situations.
Surge Protection—The CEN-UPS1250 provides thorough protection against
surges, spikes, and lightning. In addition to power line protection on all 12
outlets, there is also built-in surge protection for two separate coax lines and one
telephone line, delivering a complete solution for protecting TVs, cable and
satellite receivers, modems, and conferencing devices.
Noise Filtering—Built-in EMI and RFI noise filtering eliminates the
electromagnetic and radio frequency interference that can negatively impact
sound and video quality. Each of the four outlet banks provides filtering
protection specialized for a specific type of device: DIGITAL, DISPLAY, ANALOG,
and HI-CURRENT. Each bank is electrically isolated to prevent any noise present
on one bank from reaching the devices connected to any other bank.
Environmental Monitoring—Using the external probe included, ambient
temperature and relative humidity levels can be measured and recorded, and
even reported to the control system or central help desk. Using this feature, safe
operating limits can be specified for all of the equipment within a room or rack
so that whenever the limits are exceeded, the user is notified, climate control is
adjusted, and if necessary the equipment can be powered down safely.
Pure Sine Wave Battery Backup—Any unexpected shutdown due to the sudden
loss of power will certainly disrupt workflow and stop a presentation dead in its
tracks, but it can also cause the loss of precious data and system settings, and can
even damage hard drives and other vulnerable components. The CEN-UPS1250
constantly monitors the incoming power line and instantly transfers power to
battery backup in the event of such a power loss, ensuring the connected
components continue to operate unhampered. It may also be configured to transfer
to battery in the case of an over or under voltage condition, or if excessive line
noise or distortion is detected, ensuring optimum performance of sensitive video
and audio equipment during momentary power glitches.
RoomView® and Control System Integration—Monitoring and operation of the
CEN-UPS1250 extends beyond its front panel, providing direct communication
with Crestron’s RoomView Remote Asset Management Software as well as with
Ethernet-enabled 2-Series control systems. The CEN-UPS1250 notifies
RoomView whenever it switches to battery backup, and warns if the battery is
low or overloaded. It also reports which outlet banks are on, as well as the line
voltage, output voltage, frequency, voltage regulation status, system load,
internal temperature, ambient temperature and humidity, and battery condition.
Centralized monitoring and logging via RoomView provides an invaluable
resource for quickly resolving power line problems and maintaining batteries.
When running on battery backup, the CEN-UPS1250 can power a rack full of
equipment for several minutes without interruption. In the event of a prolonged
power outage, a properly managed shutdown of the equipment can be performed
automatically. Configurable “load-shedding” allows only certain components to be
shut down, preserving battery fuel and extending runtime for more vital
components. The CEN-UPS1250 will also ensure a smooth changeover from
primary power to a backup generator.
Built-in Logging—In addition to RoomView, the CEN-UPS1250 also supports
onboard timestamp logging. Data can be set to log every 1 to 60 minutes with
sufficient memory for at least 30 days of history, recording the load, battery
condition, line voltage, outlet on/off status, and environmental conditions.
Instantaneous events such as switching to battery, low battery warnings, and
self-tests are also logged.
Managed Power Control—The CEN-UPS1250 provides twelve 120V power outlets
organized in 4 banks. Each of the four banks of outlets is independently switchable,
with fully managed power-up and shutdown available at the press of a single
button or control system command. Up to 10 seconds of delay adjustment on
banks 3 and 4 enables customized sequential switching capability. Sequential
switching ensures that all the components of a complete system are powered up
and down in proper order, avoiding dangerous transients that can damage delicate
components and trip the main circuit breaker. Components such as video
projectors and media servers that require systematic shutdown and restart can be
managed seamlessly through integration with a control system.
Automatic Voltage Regulation—Keeping the voltage within a safe operating range
helps prevent equipment malfunctions and can even improve audio and video | 800.237.2041
Rack-mountable—A heavy duty rackmount hardware kit is provided to mount
the unit into any EIA standard 4-post 19" equipment rack up to 28" deep. The feet
on the bottom of the unit can be unscrewed and removed to save space when
the unit is rack-mounted.
