Smart battery backup and highperformance surge suppression
for Windows 95 and NT PCs
Back-UPS Pro
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.
An APC Back-UPS Pro instantly switches your computer to emergency battery backup power and allows you
to work through brief power outages without data loss or downtime. The APC Back-UPS Pro uses PowerChute
plus software with WorkSafe™ 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.
Complete System Protection and
Enterprise-wide manageability for
Network Clients
APC Back-UPS Pro 280 offers premium power
protection for network nodes and home PCs at a
very affordable cost. You’ll get 7 to 10 minutes
of runtime for your CPU and monitor, and the
network/dataline protection you need to guard all
paths to your system. Plus you’ll enjoy advanced
data saving and power management software tools
offered by APC Back-UPS Pro.
Performance Workstation/System
If you use Windows NT or Windows 95 on a high
performance workstation, you need an APC BackUPS Pro 420 or APC Back-UPS Pro 650. Because
advanced operating sytems multitask, APC gives
you both the runtime you need and the ability to
have your computer shutdown safely if you’re
away from your desk. You’ll also have the peace of
mind knowing that every path to your system and
your peripherals is protected.
Multiple Workstation Protection
If you need 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.
“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. If you don’t
have enough power, your computer will crash
before safe shutdown, and crashes mean lost data.
The only way to eliminate that worry without
doing hours of research is to depend on APC’s
“Best in Class” Longest Runtime guarantee.
APC’s Lifetime Equipment Protection guarantees
your equipment will be safe from all power surges,
including lightning (see policy for details). This
premium protection starts as soon as you plug in
your UPS.
“2112% growth over last 5 years demanded an
integral use of APC UPS devices as part of our
strategic vision to stabilize network services,
regardless of volatile environmental conditions.”
says Michael Mullicane, CIO for America II
Group, one of the fastest growing companies in
America according to Inc. Magazine’s list.
“We’ve installed nearly 500 Back-UPS Pro plug and
play units to shield the workstations in our global
network. In our environment, we may add 20 salespeople in a week. APC UPSs are key to providing
reliable information access to our employees.
Michael Mullicane, Chief Information Officer
America II Group, Inc., St. Petersburg, Florida
“Worth the money? The year before we installed
APC products, our average downtime across all
revenue generating workstations was 17 hours.
At $1000 per minute (network wide), it doesn’t
take a heck of a lot of math to figure out that we
made a good call in choosing APC.”

“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 Pro 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 Pro have a quick, easy pushbutton 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 Pro 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
Pro 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.
Additional Safety and Reliability Features
Multipath Protection
APC Back-UPS Pro has enough outlets to
protect your entire computer system. With
dedicated outlets for computer, monitor and
all peripherals such as laser printers, Zip
drives, scanners, fax machines, and with
fax/modem protection, everything is safe
from the threat of bad power. Surge-only
outlets are always on for convenience.
BlockSafe™ cord extensions accommodate
even the largest transformer blocks without
covering other outlets. Eliminate the threat
of power problems by plugging your entire
system into APC Back-UPS Pro.
Internet Ready: Protection for
Fax/Modem/Network Connection
Universal Hardware
Connecting to the Internet
and on-line services via
modem or to the local area
network (LAN) doubles your computer’s
exposure to damage. The Internet/LAN ready
APC Back-UPS Pro protects internal and
external modems, your motherboard and
other system components with fax, modem
or network line surge protection.
APC Back-UPS Pro provides complete protection for Apple, IBM compatible or Unix
computers, using any operating system.
Replace Battery Indicator
This indicator lights when a battery is worn
and needs replacement–long before actual
battery failure. You have ample time to contact APC for a Battery Replacement Cartridge
(available at www.apcc.com, or see your local
“On Battery” Indicator
This LED indicates when connected
equipment is running on battery
power, alerting you to save data and
close valuable files.
Overload Indicator
An overloaded UPS may not provide
adequate runtime for you to save your
files and data in the event of a power failure. This indicator alerts you to correct the
overload to ensure you receive the runtime
you need.
