A mini-tower UPS with line interactive topology, the CyberPower Intelligent LCD CST1300ALU provides battery backup (using simulated sine wave output) and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems. The CST1300ALU uses Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, which extends battery life. AVR is essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently.
Two USB charge ports (2.1 Amp shared) rapidly power portable devices such as mobile phones, MP3 players, and cameras. The CST1300ALU comes with a three-year warranty (including coverage of batteries) and a $500,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee.
- Battery Backup
Supplies power long enough for equipment to properly shut down when utility power fails. Helps prevent loss of data and minimizes the component stress caused by a hard shutdown.
- Surge Protection
Diverts excess voltage away from sensitive electronic equipment during an AC power surge or power spike to prevent damage.
- Data Line Protection
Prevents power surges that travel through telephone, coaxial, and Ethernet lines from causing damage to electronics.
- Line Interactive Topology
Exists when a line interactive UPS has an autotransformer that regulates low voltages (e.g., brownouts) and over voltages (e.g., spikes) without having to switch to battery.
- Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
Provides clean, consistent AC power by automatically regulating low voltages and over voltages, within defined tolerances, when incoming utility power has minor fluctuations.
- Simulated Sine Wave Output
Uses pulse wave modulation to generate a stepped, approximated sine wave to supply cost-effective battery backup power for equipment that does not require sine wave output.
- USB Charge Ports
Rapidly charge and power USB devices such as tablets (including iPad), smartphones, MP3 players, and other mobile accessories.
- GreenPower UPS™ Bypass
Is a patented design that allows utility power to bypass the UPS transformer, when AC power is stable, which reduces energy consumption, noise, and heat buildup.
- Multifunction LCD Panel
Displays immediate, detailed information on the battery backup and power conditions, alerting users to potential problems before they can affect critical equipment and cause downtime.
- Ultra Quiet Design
Minimizes noise during operation for a quieter work environment.
- PowerPanel® Personal Edition Software
Provides a user-friendly dashboard interface for controlling and monitoring the UPS. Free software download available. See the Resources tab.
- ENERGY STAR
This model is an ENERGY STAR® certified Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system. ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy-efficient products and practices that help save money and protect the environment.
- Three-Year Warranty
CyberPower will repair or replace a defective UPS system (including batteries) within three years of the purchase date.
- Connected Equipment Guarantee
CyberPower will repair or replace properly connected equipment if it is damaged by a power surge.
