Safely shut down computer systems and guard connected equipment from surges with the Back-UPS Pro BR 1500VA Battery Backup and Surge Protector from APC. The UPS is armed with a total of ten NEMA 5-15R outlets, with six providing surge and backup power and four designed for surge protection only. In the event of a power outage, the UPS comes equipped with an internal battery that delivers up to 900W of power. The battery-powered outlets provide up to 5.4 minutes of use at full load and over 120 minutes at 50W. For electrical spikes, the UPS has a 1080-joule surge energy rating. Other notable connections include coax, USB, and Ethernet ports for safeguarding video and network signals. Included along with the backup UPS is the downloadable PowerChute software program to monitor energy usage and prevent data corruption by automatically saving files and shutting down a computer system.

  • Warns when a battery is not available to provide backup power.
  • Use your PC to access additional power protection and management features for your UPS via a USB Port.
  • Provides key UPS status at a glance. Multiple status indicators with load and battery bar graphs.
  • Provides notification of changing utility power and UPS power conditions.
  • Ensures the product has been tested and approved to work safely with the connected service provider equipment and within the specified environment.
  • Maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • Toggle between pre-determined voltage-transfer points depending on your power quality (high, medium or low sensitivity), maximizing useful battery life and protecting sensitive electronics.
  • Provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries enabling timely preventive maintenance.
  • Provides temporary battery power when the utility power is out.
  • Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
  • Protect equipment with input transformer blocks without blocking access to other receptacles.
  • Gives higher application availability by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery (not available on all models).
  • Energy saving feature automatically power off peripherals when a master device, usually a PC, hibernates or is shut down. Power to peripherals is immediately restored when the master device wakes up or is switched on.
  • Adjust the voltage points (widen or tighten the range) where your UPS transfers to battery to maximize useful battery life and protect sensitive electronics.
  • Patent-pending operating mode that bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high operating efficiency without sacrificing any protection.
  • Increases UPS availability by allowing quick, easy battery replacement.
  • Easy recovery from overloads; no need to replace a fuse.
  • Protect secondary electronics from surges and spikes without reducing battery power used to run primary electronics during an outage.
  • Provides protection of connected equipment from power surges on the data lines.
  • Back up and protect your hardware and data during power outages, surges and spikes.
Additional Features
  • Patent-pending operating mode that bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high operating efficiency without sacrificing any protection.
  • Reserves power capacity and run time for connected equipment that require UPS battery back-up while providing surge only protection for less critical equipment.
  • Provides key UPS status at a glance. Multiple status indicators with load and battery bar graphs.
  • Preserves battery life and maximizes runtime by correcting low voltages without discharging the battery.

Most unopened items sold by Melrose Inc. in new condition and returned within 30 days will receive a refund or exchange. The return window for items sold online begins once the order has been invoiced. Invoicing happens when any part of the order is shipped, delivered by a courier service or made ready for pick up.

Software is not returnable and not refundable. All sales are final. This is generally part of all webcarts selling software. It is buyer beware. The reason for this is once an end-user customer sees a License Code then that code is 'spoiled' because they can use it to gain access to the software.  Once a License Code is registered by a customer that product is available to that customer and therefore the code cannot be returned.
