Press Release: Liebert Delivers USP for small, business critical systems

My spin: Power loss, although it’s never happened to me (unless I kicked out a plug..oh and one or two times when the power failed in my office because someone had a powerful frige and microwave one) is not a good thing. It’s not only frustraing as you have to reboot your computers and other systems but a) you might lose your work b) it’s not good for your hardware to be shut down improperly.
News Clip: COLUMBUS, OH, May 14, 2003 РLiebert̠ Corporation today unveiled PowerSure PSA, a compact, full-featured uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system with capacities from 350VA to 1,000VA. Designed to increase the reliability and availability of workstations, point-of-sale systems and network equipment, PowerSure PSA utilizes line interactive technology with automatic voltage regulation to protect against the outages, disturbances and spikes that can damage equipment, paralyze business and destroy critical data.
“At Liebert, we have extensive experience protecting business critical systems – from the highest availability data centers to the smaller, but equally important, systems small businesses, remote offices and retail locations depend upon,” said Tony Marrow, PowerSure product manager at Liebert. “The PowerSure PSA has been shaped by this experience, allowing us to deliver a high level of protection and functionality in a very cost effective package. It is the ideal UPS for almost any small, business-critical computer system.”
With a minimum of five minutes of battery backup time at full load, the PowerSure PSA protects against temporary disturbances and provides automatic, controlled shutdown in the event of extended outages. Its line interactive design with built-in automatic voltage regulation (AVR) provides continuous, efficient power conditioning – eliminating the voltage variations that can affect the performance of sensitive microelectronics.
PowerSure PSA is designed for easy set-up and installation with configurable input voltage; USB and serial communications options; battery-backed and surge-only outlets; and user-replaceable, hot-swappable batteries. It is certified by Microsoft for use with Windows XP and 2000 systems and by Apple Computer, Inc., for its Macintosh OS X (version 10.2 or later).
