Overview

Do you need to protect small- to medium-size servers, networking equipment and telecom systems against data loss, downtime and equipment damage due to power outages, voltage fluctuations and transient surges? Tripp Lite’s SU1500XLCD SmartOnline® Tower UPS System is the solution! Featuring a 1500VA/1350W capacity and true on-line operation with pure sine wave output and zero transfer time to battery, it provides the highest level of power protection for mission-critical equipment. The SU1500XLCD’s large internal battery set supports connected equipment during blackouts, and runtime is expandable with optional external battery packs BP48V60RT-3U and BP48V27-2US, sold separately. The SU1500XLCD has 6 5-15R outlets, including 2 load banks of 3 outlets each that are individually controllable to reboot select equipment on demand or maximize battery runtime for mission-critical equipment. USB and DB9 communication ports support messaging of detailed UPS operational parameters and line power status. PowerAlert UPS management software is available via free download. The SU1500XLCD also accepts an optional network management card. It comes backed by $250,000 of Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico only).

Features

Ideal for Protection of Mission-Critical Equipment
The SU1500XLCD provides true on-line operation, reliable battery backup and comprehensive power management capability in a compact tower form factor. Featuring a 1500VA/1350W capacity, 6 5-15R outlets, a 10-ft. cord with standard 5-15P plug, USB/DB9 ports and a slot for an optional network management card, SU1500XLCD offers a complete power protection solution for small- to medium-size servers, storage devices, telecom systems and other mission-critical equipment.
True On-Line Operation with Pure Sine Wave Output and Zero Transfer Time
The SU1500XLCD provides the highest level of protection available for mission-critical equipment. It actively converts raw incoming AC power to DC, then re-converts it back to regulated, filtered AC output with a pure sine wave, completely isolating connected components from all power problems. Zero transfer time between AC and battery operation maintains continuous output and further protects connected equipment from the disruptive effects of blackouts and severe low-voltage conditions. Sine wave output guarantees compatibility with all equipment types.
Individually Controllable Outlets
The SU1500XLCD includes 2 load banks of 3 outlets each that are individually controllable via a software interface for remote reboot of locked-up equipment or load shedding to maximize battery backup time for mission-critical equipment.
Reliable, Expandable Battery Backup
UPS battery backup keeps connected equipment operational through short power failures, and provides time to save data and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The SU1500XLCD features a large internal battery set that provides 14 minutes of battery support for a half load (675 watts) and 4.5 minutes for a full load (1350 watts). Intelligent battery management system extends battery life. During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the UPS battery fully charged so that backup power will always be available if needed. For mission-critical applications demanding continuous uptime, the fully scalable SU1500XLCD can provide expandable runtime with optional external battery packs BP48V60RT-3U and BP48V27-2US, sold separately.
High Power Factor and Highly Efficient Operation Reduces BTU Output
The SU1500XLCD features a high 0.9 power factor and an optional, highly efficient economy mode setting that can significantly reduce a facility’s energy costs. In economy mode, the UPS operates with 97% efficiency, minimizing heat output, reducing cooling requirements and consuming less electricity.
AC Line and Tel/Ethernet Surge Suppression
A sudden power surge or spike can damage or destroy electronic components and wipe out irreplaceable data. The SU1500XLCD features a 570-joule surge suppression rating to protect connected components and data from the harmful effects of power surges. One set of tel/Ethernet (RJ45) jacks provides surge protection for a standard phone or network connection (cable not included).
EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering
Various electrical and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The SU1500XLCD incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment.
LCD Screen and Audible Alarm
The SU1500XLCD features a front-panel LCD screen that enables IT personnel to monitor line power, on-line mode, bypass mode, on-battery, overload, battery low, replace battery and fault status information. It is supplemented by an audible alarm that signals UPS startup, power failure, low battery, overload, UPS fault and remote shutdown conditions.
USB/DB9 Ports, SNMP Capability and Included PowerAlert Software
SU1500XLCD includes HID-compliant USB interface that enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. USB and DB9 ports enable data-saving unattended shutdown when used with Tripp Lite's PowerAlert software, available via FREE download from www.tripplite.com/poweralert. Compatible with Tripp Lite UPS management card options TLNETCARD, WEBCARDLX, SNMPWEBCARD, MODBUSCARD and RELAYIOCARD.
Emergency Power Off (EPO) Capability
The SU1500XLCD features an EPO interface port that supports emergency shutoff in large facilities (cable included).
Peace of Mind
The SU1500XLCD comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico only) for connected equipment.
