APC UPS & Emergency Power Selection

by Waheed Ahmad

APC’s industry-leading emergency power solutions help prevent downtime, data loss, and damage to network equipment in the event of a power outage. The UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems provide temporary emergency power so that mission-critical equipment can continue to run or be safely switched off. They also protect against peak voltage and fluctuations in the power grid. An APC UPS is therefore indispensable in any business environment.
