Safe power for
YOU WOULDN’T DREAM of filling a sports car with dirty gasoline, but many
people plug their high-performance computers and audio/video components
into unprotected outlets without considering the consequences. The electricity
in your home was designed to run light bulbs, not sophisticated modern electronics. At best, unfiltered power is dirty, reducing performance and increasing wear and tear. At worst, it can damage electronics beyond repair.
The Electric Power Research Institute estimates that power problems
cost American consumers up to $188 billion per year, but you can defeat that
statistic with one simple, affordable solution. An uninterruptible power supply
(UPS) system with automatic voltage regulation (AVR) protects your electronics with clean, safe, reliable power. Here are a few cases in point.
Problem: Surge/spike (short-term voltage increase from lightning, etc.) causes
catastrophic equipment failure, data corruption and incremental damage.
Solution: UPS that provides built-in surge suppression for all outlets
Problem: Sag or brownout (low voltage caused by local or grid overload)
causes malfunctions and incremental damage.
Solution: UPS with AVR that adjusts voltage to safe levels
Problem: EMI/RFI (electromagnetic and radio frequency interference) noise
from local appliances and other sources causes data corruption and degrades
performance, including sound, picture and stability.
Solution: UPS that filters EMI/RFI noise
Problem: Blackout (complete loss of power) causes reduced productivity, system
corruption and lost data, settings and recordings. Can destroy projection bulbs
due to sudden loss of cooling fans.
Solution: UPS that provides battery backup to support equipment and cooling
fans until power is restored or systems are safely shut down
Clean, safe, reliable power from a UPS system with AVR offers you peace
of mind and peak performance at a reasonable price, allowing your home
computer and electronics investment to pay off for years to come. A
