Features

Energy-Saving 550VA/300W/120V Battery Backup for PCs, Home Theater and Digital Signage
The standby ECO550UPS UPS system provides reliable battery backup and AC power protection against blackouts, brownouts, overvoltages, surges and line noise that can damage valuable electronics or destroy data. The 10-outlet 120V battery backup is ideal protection for your home office, media center or professional kiosk, security and small-business phone applications, including computers, routers, printers, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, ATMs, security systems and digital signage equipment.

Allows Time to Back Up Critical Files During a Blackout 
Backup support allows you to work through short power failures and gives you enough time to safely save files and shut down your system in case of a prolonged blackout. Backup time varies according to load, but the ECO550UPS should keep an energy-efficient desktop computer with small LCD monitor powered as long as 16 minutes. During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the replaceable internal battery fully charged, so backup power will always be available.

10 NEMA 5-15R Outlets Protect Your Connected Components
Five 5-15R outlets provide battery backup and surge protection for your computer, monitor and other crucial components. The other five 5-15R outlets provide surge suppression only for printers, speakers and other desktop equipment regarded as non-essential during a blackout.

ENERGY STAR-Certified to Help You Save Money and Protect the Environment
By meeting strict EPA efficiency guidelines, this ENERGY STAR-certified UPS system helps you save money and energy. An ECO power-saving option features three switched ECO outlets (two surge-only, one surge- and battery-protected) that turn off automatically when the device connected to the Battery Backup Master Outlet is powered down or in sleep mode. These outlets are recommended for printers, desk lamps and other non-essential peripherals that don’t need to be operational all the time.

316 Joules Fight Back Against Unexpected Power Surges
A 316-joule surge suppression rating protects connected components from the harmful effects of power surges.

HID-Compliant USB Port Allows for Automatic Saves and Shutdowns
This USB port connects the ECO550UPS to a computer running Tripp Lite’s free downloadable PowerAlert® software to enable safe unattended file saves and system shutdown in case of a prolonged power failure. USB cable is included.

Combats Electromagnetic Interference That Can Harm Equipment
Various electromagnetic and radio sources found in virtually every home and business can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. Known as EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference), this line noise is a common cause of performance problems and can lead to incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video transmission problems. The ECO550UPS incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise so that it won’t affect your equipment.

Home-Friendly Alarm and Diagnostic LEDs Keep You Informed 24/7
The UPS remains silent in both line and battery backup modes. The alarm sounds only to warn you of a low battery, overload or fault condition. A front-panel green LED indicates operating mode, ECO mode and fault status.

Compact Housing Compatible with Easy Desktop or Wall-Mount Installation
The space-saving ABS housing fits on a desktop, shelf or anywhere else convenient to your workstation or home theater. Keyhole mounting tabs on the rear allow easy wall-mount installation. The five-foot power cord with NEMA 5-15P plug connects to any compatible AC outlet.

Typical Applications

  • Protect your PC and other sensitive electronics against power surges, line noise, brownouts, overvoltages and blackouts
  • Operate essential equipment during short-term power outages using battery backup power
  • Shut down desktop PCs and other equipment without data loss during long-term power outages 
  • Turn off outlets connected to printers, desk lamps and other non-essential devices when not in use to save energy
