About American Power Conversion (APC) APC Smart-UPS C 1500VA

The APC Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD is a 900 W out, 120 V in UPS (uninterruptible power supply) with an USB interface port, multifunction LCD status and control console and 8x battery-powered outlets. It uses NEMA 5-15R connections for output and a NEMA 5-15P input connection. Its maintenance-free sealed lead-acid battery has a typical recharge time of 3 hours and you can purchase backup batteries for the unit separately.

At a full load of 900 W, the backup time is 5 minutes. At half load of 450 W, the backup time is 14 minutes. It has a surge energy rating of 455 joules, so it is well protected against brown outs, shutdowns and surges. It also provides battery-powered AC from its outlets. The Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD (120 V) also bypasses unused electrical components in good power condition in certain power modes to help stay green by using less power without sacrificing protection.

It also uses pure sine wave output to simulate utility power as close to the original as possible to protect servers and sensitive electronics. The Smart-UPS C 1500 VA with LCD (120 V) is a smart investment for end users looking to protect their equipment from sudden power loss.

American Power Conversion (APC) APC Smart-UPS C 1500VA Features

  • Green Mode: Patent-pending operating mode that bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high operating efficiency without sacrificing any protection
  • Pure Sine Wave Output on Battery: Simulates utility power to provide the highest degree of compatibility for active PFC (power factor corrected) servers and sensitive electronics
  • LCD Status Display: Provides key UPS status at a glance. Multiple status indicators with load and battery bar graphs
  • High Online Efficiency: Reduces utility costs, generates less heat
  • Cold-Start Capable: Provides temporary battery power when the utility power is out
  • Temperature-Compensated Battery Charging: Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature

APC great products and exchange program

I really appreciate APC's exchange program. Our previous unit was 9 years old and only replaced the batteries once. It was time for the batteries to be replaced again so I took advantage of the exchange program to get a new unit. The whole process was painless and worked perfectly.

Fickle Mac support

After wading through the plethora of UPS options for a desktop, I decided to go with this unit to replace an almost identical 1000VA that died.

So the shutdown features are no longer available, and no Knowledge Base articles (or tech support) for fixing this issue. The unit is probably 5 stars, as was the previous. The 3 stars is for the total lack of Macintosh support by APC.

I'm happy

By

from Undisclosed

When I buy a product such as a UPS, I'm basically deciding whether a higher price is worth it based on the company's reputation and my prior experience. That was the choice I faced when my over 10 year old UPS finally died recently. I bought this unit rather than a competitor's unit because I did not want to take a chance on another company I had no experience with. A few extra dollars for a UPS was worth it compared to the cost of replacing all the gear it's protecting. But it was a close decision because of the price differential between this unit and a similar one from a competitor.

UPS good, policies bad

By

from Ohio

I bought this to replace an older APC UPS that had failed. At fitst I could not program it to do what I need, but APC support was very helpful and solved the problem. BUT: 1. APC recommended that I replace the old unit with one that is twice as large, which I do not need and did not buy. 2. The trade-in policy is nice, but it includes only the UPS and NOT the external extra capacity batteries. This leaves me stuck with those batteries and no good way to dispose of them.

Most cost effective

By

from Massachusetts

We needed to replace a very old failing unit but as a non-profit we could not afford a top-of-the-line solution. This unit was cost-effective and is performing superbly. Best of all, the upgrade/exchange program offered by APC is excellent. That, as well as the quality of the products, keeps us coming back.
