    Tripp Lite SmartPro Line Interactive UPS with enhanced LCD interface offers network-grade power protection for critical server, network and telecommunications equipment. Line Interactive Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) with built-in Auto-Voltage Regulation (AVR) actively corrects brownouts and overvoltages back to usable levels while maintaining a full battery charge in case of power failure. Tripp Lite's unique configuration excels in exceptionally poor-power environments with two separate levels of voltage boost to correct both slight undervoltages and severe brownout conditions. Interactive LCD interface reports UPS operating mode, detailed UPS and site-power data, plus enables a variety of UPS setup and configuration options. Super-fast switchover from line to battery power occurs within milliseconds to maintain operation of connected equipment without interruption or reboot. 96% line-mode efficiency offers reduced heat emissions and operating costs. Network management interfaces support communications via USB, RS-232 and optional SNMPWEBCARD network interface. HID-compliant USB interface enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. Network communications ports enable detailed monitoring of equipment load levels, self-test data and utility power conditions. Includes PowerAlert monitoring software and complete cabling. Switched output load banks enable scheduled and real-time remote reboot and load shedding of select outlets. Emergency Power Off (EPO) interface. LCD display panel easily rotates for viewing in rackmount or tower configurations. Audible alarm with push-button momentary alarm-cancel and silent-mode configuration options. Programmable self-test. Field-replaceable, hot-swappable battery modules.

    Working great since december April, 2012 This one is great and haven't had any problem since the installation. There have been power outages in the server room, but this guy handled it fine. Bought additional warranty, just in case ;) But now I wonder why I bought it ,lol. September 5, 2013
    Reliable, easy to install I have no issues with this unit. I bought two of them and they're running perfectly fine. I have yet to install the SNMPWEBCARD in each of them but with the ease of use and simple interface, I'm sure this will go smoothly as well. I opted for TrippLite over APC mostly due to the value provided. APC costs more and does the same job. May 27, 2013
    have 4 total, 2 in each rack for RPS. works good and has not failed during generator testing. like a option for hot swap of batteries. would like the option to monitor via URL March 5, 2013
    Unbelievably loud These are totally unusable for any sound level sensitive applications. I measured the decibel level directly in front of this unit at 86dB, which falls somewhere between a vacuum cleaner and a truck engine! Even working near this thing in a server room would be brutal and probably require earplugs. Buyer beware. I give it two stars only because I'm sure it works fine, but not for my or any other situation that requires quiet operation. August 29, 2012

    What is the actual maximum power consumption for the PSU itself? I am putting together a max power consumption list for a bunch of hardware and need to know how many watts or amps the PSU uses when charging on 120v.
