Power problems—including blackouts, brownouts, power surges and line noise—threaten your investment! They can damage or destroy PCs and other expensive equipment, wipe out valuable data and files, and degrade component performance. Get protected against these all-too-common power threats with Tripp Lite's OMNIVS1500XL UPS System. It provides reliable battery backup that can keep entry-level PC systems operational for up to 75 minutes during blackouts. Runtime is expandable with optional external battery packs. Advanced Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) corrects low-voltage conditions (brownouts) and overvoltages back to safe 120V power without draining the UPS battery. Surge suppression and EMI/RFI line noise filtering prevent hardware damage and performance problems such as poor-quality audio and video output. Plus, the OMNIVS1500XL comes with $200,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment and a 3-year product warranty.

Ideal for Protection for Home or Office PCs and Peripherals

Featuring reliable, expandable battery backup, advanced Automatic Voltage Regulation, surge suppression, line noise filtering, USB communication port and tel/Ethernet line protection, the OMNIVS1500XL offers a complete power protection solution for PCs, peripherals and all home and office electronics. The OMNIVS1500XL features a split-outlet design with eight total AC outlets: six to provide battery backup support and surge protection for computers, monitors and other critical components; two to provide surge protection only for peripherals such as printers and scanners that do not need battery backup.

Ideal for Protection for Home or Office PCs and Peripherals

Reliable, Expandable Battery Backup

UPS battery backup support enables you to work through short power failures, and provides time to save files and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The OMNIVS1500XL features a large internal battery that provides 4.5 min. of battery support for a full load (940 watts), 13 min. for a half-load (470 watts) or 75 min. for a single PC. During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the UPS battery fully charged so that backup power will always be available if needed. Runtime may be expanded by connecting optional external battery packs, sold separately. (Compatible Tripp Lite external battery packs: BP24V15RT2U, BP24V48-2U, BP24V70-3U.)

Advanced Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)

AVR protects your equipment from incremental hardware damage, data loss and performance problems that can be caused by low-voltage conditions, commonly known as brownouts. The OMNIVS1500XL can correct brownouts as low as 75V and overvoltages as high as 147V back to 120V without drawing on battery backup power that may be needed to support your equipment during a blackout.

EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering
Feature Focus

AC Line and Tel/Ethernet Surge Suppression

A sudden power surge or spike on an AC, phone or network line can damage or destroy electronic components and wipe out irreplaceable data. The OMNIVS1500XL features a 480-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.

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 OMNIVS1500XL incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment.

USB Port and Free PowerAlert Software

The OMNIVS1500XL features a USB port (cable included) that works with Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert software (available from Tripp Lite as a Web download) to enable safe unattended system shutdown and file saves in the event of a prolonged power failure.

Small-Footprint Tower Housing

The OMNIVS1500XL features a compact vertical (tower) form factor that fits easily on a desktop or under a workstation. Plus, its 6-ft. power cord reaches distant outlets.

Environmentally Responsible

The OMNIVS1500XL's efficient design conserves electricity, saves money and reduces CO2 emissions. This UPS System is manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS guidelines to minimize the use of hazardous materials, and its replaceable internal battery is 100% recyclable.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The OMNIVS1500XL comes with $200,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment insurance (USA/Canada only) and a 3-year product warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Still works great after 2 years

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: I didn't buy the 4 we have through Newegg. I buy almost all our computer stuff here but they aren't the cheapest for this item

4 out of 5 eggsTripp Lite UPS

Pros: Basic, solid UPS that is well built and handles rated loads for extended periods. Excellent run time can be extended to hours with external battery packs, unusual in this price class. Powers most all computer and AV devices, unlike some of the newfangled competition.

Cons: Fan is loud when USP is on battery power, but quiet when on AC, overall acceptable. Very limited display with no power level indication until batteries are very low. Software is flaky (see other thoughts).

Other Thoughts: The BP24V15RT2U is highly recommended for higher lods. It increases watt-hour capacity to 3x and run time 3-4x or more depending on load. This unit with the external BP has replaced two 1300VA UPS and has longer run time. :)

PowerAlert software has limited features and communication is unreliable on several computers, hence only 4 stars (would be 5 otherwise). Others have reported similar problems if you search...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat customer support

Pros: Worked great until it failed

Cons: Failed almost at the end of warranty.

Other Thoughts: Customer support is excellent. The unit failed, and I called Tripp Lite support. After a few minutes of troubleshooting, they sent out a replacement unit. Did not ask for the old unit, which I'm glad because shipping would have been expensive.

Pros: Not expensive, powerful, has socket for extra battery, convenient shape and socket positions.
