3000VA / 3kVA on-line, double-conversion UPS system for critical server, network and telecommunications equipment. 3U rackmount form factor with an installed depth of 20 inches (50.8cm). Expandable battery runtime with optional external battery packs BP72V15-2U (limit 1), BP72V28RT-3U (multi-pack compatible) and BP72V18-2US (multi-pack compatible). Full time sine wave 200/208/220/240V AC output with +/-2% voltage regulation. Online, double-conversion Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) actively converts raw incoming AC power to DC, then re-converts output back to completely regulated, filtered AC output. Operates continuously without using battery power during brownouts to 130V and overvoltages to 275V. NEMA L6-20P input plug. NEMA 6-15/20R & L6-20R output receptacles. Network-grade AC surge and noise suppression. Zero transfer time between AC and battery operation. Network management interfaces support simultaneous communications via DB9 serial port and SNMPWEBCARD slot. Built-in DB9 port offers both enhanced RS-232 enabled monitoring data, plus contact closure monitoring ability. Supports simultaneous detailed monitoring of equipment load levels, self-test data and mains power conditions via all network interfaces. Includes PowerAlert monitoring software and complete cabling. Integrated two bank PDU switching supports load shedding and remote-reboot of connected equipment. Multi-stage metered current monitoring and battery charge status LEDs. Mains power and voltage regulation LEDs. Audible Alarm. Self-test. Fault-tolerant auto-bypass mode. 4 post rackmount accessories included; 2-9USTAND tower kit and 2POSTRMKITWM 2-post rackmount accessories available.

240V on-line UPS


from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite SmartOnline 3kVA On-Line Double-Conversion UPS 3U Rack/Tower 208/240V NEMA outlets:

This UPS is used outdoors in a covered shed to protect an expensive DC variable voltage fertilizer injector which requires true and reliable 240V single stage power and a copper ion injector system for a commercial orchid nursery in south Florida. Our summers are 9 months long - hot and steamy-humid. I had to protect our equipment from the frequent lightning strikes along with voltage drops and surges from FPL. I built a stand to get the UPS up near the polycarbonate roof, but it is still located above 2 fertilizer tanks holding concentrated fertilizer (salts) and a potassium hydroxide tank. I provide constant airflow using a cheap plastic fan which may prevent some overheating problems. There is some corrosion (humidity, salts, etc) but the unit keeps operating as it should.
