APC Symmetra – What is it?

APC keeps the power on, and the data flowing. The name APC is synonymous with high-quality UPS products. And the breadth of the APC line is impressive – with the Smart UPS uninterruptible, network-grade power backups leading the way. APC Symmetra is part of the APC-Smart UPS line. It’s a highly available single phase UPS that features redundant and scalable double-conversion on-line power protection.

APC SmartConnect

One feature that stands out on the APC Smart UPS series is APC’s SmartConnect technology. This allows cloud-enablement for your UPS. That means you can login via a secure portal via any internet-connected device. Then you can view the status of your UPS, receive notifications, get firmware updates and more. So for those who don’t have time to monitor the UPS, this can be quite valuable. In addition, the UPS also has both line interactive topology (via an automatic voltage regulator), and uses a clean pure sine wave form for output. This makes it compatible with most any computer or audio gear.

More about APC Symmetra

The Symmetra line is engineered to deliver the highest level of business continuity possible. This is pretty much enterprise-grade UPS. Big stuff, with tons of features. It’s modular, redundant architecture can scale power and run time as demand increases. Or, when higher levels of availability are a must.

Symmetra’s integrated network manageability provides real time status updates of UPS health and environmental conditions. Its hot-swappable, user replaceable power, battery, and intelligence modules mean they’re easy to service. Symmetra’s modular design provides redundant power in a single chassis for business-critical applications in server rooms and network closets.

APC Symmetra’s batteries and intelligence modules provide clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment during Intelligence Module replacement. It’s modular design provides reduced maintenance via self-diagnosing, field-replaceable modules. And battery modules are connected in parallel, which delivers higher availability through redundant batteries.

Not only that, Symmetra will automatically restart loads after UPS shutdown. This includes the connected equipment, upon the return of utility power. And it supplies utility power to the connected loads in the event of a UPS power overload or fault. And it reduces preventative maintenance needs by monitoring the health and status of the external batteries and their expected runtime.

Save money with Symmetra

With APC Symmetra, you can avoid costly power problems by keeping your equipment and data protected and available. It’s power conditioning protects from damaging surges and disruptive noise. The double conversion architecture provides tight voltage regulation, frequency regulation ,and zero transfer time to battery during power events.

You’ll save time with easy and convenient remote accessibility. An you can manage networks via serial, USB or optional Ethernet. Powerchute® Network Shutdown Software is included for convenient monitoring and control, safe operating system shutdown, and innovative energy management capabilities.

Way too many features to explain

So we’ll just list a few. Hot-swappable batteries and modules, Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown, Intelligent battery management, and SmartSlot (with which you can customize UPS capabilities with management cards). There’s also easy and convenient remote accessibility, frequency and voltage regulation, power conditioning, and resettable circuit breakers, which enable a quick recovery from overload events.

Symmetra also has scalable power capacity which reduces UPS over-sizing costs today by allowing quick power upgrades, within the same footprint, later. And there’s also programmable frequency, that ensures compatibility with different input frequencies. And field-replaceable power distribution panels ensure compatibility with equipment that has different plug types.

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the complete compatibility and reliability of a market leader. APC is safety agency tested and approved. That means that you can deploy Symmetra with confidence that they meet or exceed the industry’s most rigorous standards.
