Product Description

LX1500GU | PC Battery Backup
Protect desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems

Product Overview


A mini-tower Battery Backup/ UPS (uninterruptible power supply) with line interactive topology, the CyberPower Intelligent LCD LX1500GU provides battery power and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems. The LX1500GU 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 2.1A charging ports provide charging power for portable devices such as tablets, mobile phones, MP3 players, and cameras. The LX1500GU comes with a three-year limited warranty 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.
  • 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.
  • USB Charger
    Two (2) 5Vdc USB charging ports with 2.1A support located on the front panel for convenient access to charge portable electronic devices such as tablets, mobile phones, MP3 players, and cameras.
  • PowerPanel® Personal Software
    Provides a user-friendly dashboard interface for controlling and monitoring the UPS. Free software download available here.
  • 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.

Automatic Voltage Regulation

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) in line interactive UPS systems stabilizes the incoming AC signal to maintain output power at a nominal 120 volts by controlling high and low voltages without resorting to battery power. This significantly increases battery life and lessens the likelihood of data loss, memory freezes, and system crashes.

How AVR Works in a Line Interactive UPS

A line interactive UPS includes an AVR autotransformer a special type of transformer designed to switch between powered coils of wire in response to variances in utility power input, thereby increasing or decreasing the magnetic field and the resulting output voltage to connected equipment.

This type of UPS tolerates undervoltage brownouts and overvoltage surges without consuming backup battery power by automatically selecting different power taps on the AVR autotransformer. During normal operation, incoming AC power bypasses the autotransformer (where voltage highs and lows are controlled) while also charging the battery. When the incoming voltage falls below the AVR range, the UPS switches to battery backup, and the DC-AC inverter circuitry is engaged. Power will continue to be supplied by the battery-inverter circuit until incoming voltage returns to the range manageable by the AVR.


Transformers and Transformer Outlets

A transformer converts alternating current line voltage to a higher value or a lower value. Transformers rely upon electromagnetic induction, the process which occurs when the alternating current within a circuit generates current in a nearby circuit.

Transformers vary in design and size, as well as using different amounts of current. Small transformers plug into a wall outlet and create low direct current voltages which are used by common electronic devices. Transformer outlets are more widely spaced than other outlets to accommodate transformer block adapters or other adapters that are large in size. Transformer outlets can be used to connect any appropriate device to a surge protector.
