Do you think power problems are no big deal? Think again. Power problems—including blackouts, brownouts, power surges and line noise—threaten your electronic investments every single day. They can damage or destroy PCs and other expensive equipment, wipe out valuable data and files, and degrade component performance. Protect against these all-too-common power threats with Tripp Lite's SMART1500LCDXL Digital UPS System. It provides reliable battery backup that can keep entry-level PC systems operational for up to 75 minutes during blackouts. Battery capacity is also expandable for even greater flexibility and system runtime. Automatic voltage regulation (AVR) corrects 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. A large illuminated LCD screen with dimmer switch shows incoming power conditions and UPS operations in real time. Plus, the SMART1500LCDXL comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment and a 3-year warranty.

Ideal for Protection for Home or Office PCs and Home Theaters

Ideal for Protection for Home or Office PCs and Home Theaters

Featuring reliable battery backup, automatic voltage regulation, surge suppression, line noise filtering, USB and DB9 communication ports, eight AC outlets with a unique outlet design that accommodates two large transformers without blocking other outlets plus tel/Ethernet protection, the SMART1500LCDXL offers a complete power protection solution for PCs, A/V components and all home and office electronics.

Reliable 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 SMART1500LCDXL features a large internal battery that provides 4 min. of battery support for a full load (900 watts), 12 min. for a half-load (450 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.

SMART1500LCDXL Feature Focus
EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering
Rotatable LCD Status Screen

Expandable Runtime for Greater Protection

The SMART1500LCDXL features the ability to attach an external battery pack (one BP24V15RT2U) and extend the time the unit can support loads while on battery. With a greater runtime, you have a longer period in which to shut down sensitive equipment, protect data and finish important functions when a blackout occurs.

Advanced Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)

Advanced AVR protects your equipment from incremental hardware damage, data loss and performance problems that can be caused by low-voltage conditions (brownouts) and overvoltages. The SMART1500LCDXL automatically corrects 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.

Rotatable LCD Status Screen

The SMART1500LCDXL features a large illuminated LCD screen with dimmer switch that alerts you to potential power problems. This screen shows input voltage, 5-bar battery charge level, overload, AVR, on battery and replace battery status at a glance. It can be rotated for easy viewing in both horizontal and vertical UPS installations.

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 SMART1500LCDXL 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, DSL 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 SMART1500LCDXL incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment.

Communication Ports and Free PowerAlert Software

The SMART1500LCDXL features an HID-compliant USB port and a DB9 serial port (cables included). Used with Tripp Lite's free PowerAlert software (available from Tripp Lite as a Web download), these ports enable safe unattended system shutdown and file saves in the event of a prolonged power failure. The USB port also enables integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows® and Mac OS® X.

Versatile Installation Options

The SMART1500LCDXL is easily adaptable to vertical (tower), horizontal or rackmount installations. Its 6-ft. power cord features a space-saving right-angle plug that allows furniture to be placed flush against the wall. Included removable mounting ears are provided to facilitate 2U rackmount installation in standard 2- or 4-post racks.

Environmentally Responsible

The SMART1500LCDXL'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 SMART1500LCDXL comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment insurance (USA/Canada only) and a 3-year product warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than some

Pros: The best thing I've experienced with Tripp-lite is their warranty support. I had one of these go bad after a while in service and I notified Tripp-lite via e-mail and within a couple of days another one was sitting on my porch, and they didn't want the old one back, saving me on shipping. The unit is attractive and I like the voltage display, which I glance at frequently. It was a requirement of mine the unit be rack-mountable.

Cons: The biggest gotcha to this product is that the batteries are not meant to be user replaceable! You have to send the unit in for service! Any enterprising and risk-prone individual could open the unit and replace the batteries, but keep in mind its live until unplugged and batteries disconnected. Those shiny, metal-looking parts inside can hurt you bad if you touch them.

I don't know if Tripp-lite is trying to make large in-roads into the UPS market, and I'd say they are better than some of the lower-end units, but not nearly as good as APC. APC units are designed so the user can replace the batteries, and batteries only last a few years, so this is an important feature. Also APC software is better, LINUX UPS software natively supports APC, and APC seems far more focused on power protection and all that means.

Other Thoughts: For the price its a great unit, but if I had it all to do over again I'd pay much more attention to the battery situation, which the UPS manufacturers seem to largely gloss over. Different units use different types of batteries (they're all non-spill 12v gel types, but different models with different capacities), different quantities of batteries, and these batteries will need replacing at significant cost. Not as much as a new UPS, but still enough that it should be paid attention to.
