Protect Your Data

Your audio technology experts at Sweetwater can't say it enough: PROTECT YOUR DATA! If you want to make absolutely sure the data on your computer is never damaged by power outages, you need a Back-UPS!

Unlike power "regulators," which keep your voltage levels from fluctuating, a Back-UPS actually keeps your Mac or PC running in the event of complete power failure! Back-UPS protects all power paths leading to your computer, keeping all your investments safe from power events including surges, overvoltages, brownouts, and blackouts-and keeping you safe from the downtime that power problems inevitably produce. Back-UPS also provides high-performance workstation protection, preventing data loss, increasing your system's life-span, and improving productivity.

This high performance desktop battery backup features maximum protection in a versatile design. The fully featured APC Back-UPS RS can be placed on the floor, or on a rack shelf.

Even if you used the full capacity of the Back-UPS RS 1500VA (865 Watts) you'd still have 4 minutes of power - PLENTY of time to save your projects and safely shut down your computer! The Back-UPS RS 1500VA offers six outlets that are provided battery backup in case of power failure. For printers and other devices that do not store or process information, two additional outlets provide surge protection. Both Ethernet 10/100BaseT and telephone dataline surge protection safeguards against surges entering via network connections.

APC Back-UPS RS 1500VA Features:
  • Adjustable voltage sensitivity
  • Adjustable voltage-transfer points
  • Audible alarms
  • Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown
  • Automatic self-test
  • Battery replacement without tools

It was easy to hook up and it's doing its job

Excellent. Always.

The solid, dependable products from APC are lifesavers. I would NOT work without them!

Exceeds my expectations.

I live in an area with spotty power, so I needed this to keep my setup running for a few minutes to power down when the lights go out. (which is frequently) I'm running three keyboards, a mixer & monitors from the battery backup side, and a laptop from the surge protector panel, and this unit registers a 30% load. That leaves me with around 35-40 minutes of battery run time, much more than I had expected and plenty of time to save a project and power off everything. This unit has also got rid of the annoying ground hum that sometimes happened to plague recordings, and keeps the voltage steady going to the keyboards. The switchover from mains power to battery backup is instant, no dropouts or pops & clicks through speakers, and it emits a loud beep a few times to let you know it's on the battery, loud enough to hear when playing through headphones. I can't comment on the included software as it doesn't seem to work on a MacBook, but it's not essential to the running of the unit and all the necessary settings can be controlled from the front panel. As a bonus, the battery was fully charged when it arrived. An essential piece of kit if you have power issues and well worth it for the peace of mind it brings.

I;ve been buying APC's from my celebrated SST, Jeff Law for -gulp-decades! They've all worked tremendous. I've still got 20yr old units in service (just keep replacing the lead/acid batteries). Bought this for our churches Rodgers organ, saved its life several times over (we have spotty power here on the island) Just got a new one for our home network system. You can try others, but APC is the industry leader for a reason.

So far, so good, so what?

UPS fixed voltage swings and my digital equipment works fine. Quiet, simple.
