HID-compliant USB interface enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. Built-in single-line RJ-45 jacks offer protection for equipment with single-line tel/DSL or network Ethernet connection. Built-in audible alarm and large LCD front panel voltage display indicates line power status, battery power status, battery low/replace status and voltage boost operation. The LCD display includes a dimmer switch and can be rotated for easy viewing in any application. 1500VA/900W power-handling capacity supports entry-level PCs, home entertainment systems, network workstations and audio/video components.

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro LCD 120V 1.5kVA 900W Line-Interactive UPS 2U Rack/Tower LCD Display USB DB9 Serial:

This is one of those great products that you don't think about, works silently in the background, and simply works. I only wish I had purchased one years ago. My internet provider and computer used to annoyingly croak at the most inopportune times with less than fun results. Now all I hear is the occasional "chirp" in the background telling me that Tripp-Lite is doing its job. The form factor and digital display are an added plus.

I purchased the Smart LCD 1500VA

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartPro LCD 120V 1.5kVA 900W Line-Interactive UPS 2U Rack/Tower LCD Display USB DB9 Serial:

After purchasing this product in store, I installed it the same day. I found the product quite heavy and well manufactured as far as cosmetics. All hardware was provided and seems to provide an accurate reading of incoming voltages. I immediate after installing this unit to a series of rack mount Tripp Lite power strips, performed a test. Everything worked perfectly. My only wish is that the alarm was a bit louder. There was little documentation about the in-line fuse with a lot of assumption that the installer would know about regarding loads. Especially the various on screen signs. Over all I rate this product so far as a 4 out of 5.
