American Power Conversion Corp. has expanded its Smart-UPS line with the addition of a series of 1U rack-mount UPS with capacities of 750VA and 1kVA. These devices answer the need for protecting rack-mounted servers such as appliance and blade servers, as well as Itanium 2-based servers in a distributed power protection architecture.

The new line features USB and serial connectivity to the company's PowerChute Business Edition software, which enables IT administrators to provide safe system shutdown and UPS management for servers and workstations.

They also have a built-in expansion slot that is able to integrate with APC's SmartSlot power management accessories including the Network Management Card product line, which gives users the ability to configure, control, and monitor their UPS devices via standards-based management such as Web, SNMP, WAP, Telnet, DHCP, and Syslog.

The company has also simplified the battery removal and replacement process by integrating the batteries in a chassis tray with an easy accessible connector, enabling users to disconnect and replace the batteries without disturbing the connected load.

Additionally, when the battery is being disconnected for replacement, the testing feature is automatically disabled in the unit and notifications are broadcast via in- and out-of-band notifications.
