BH1500 | AVR UPS Series
Protect SOHO networks, computers, and peripherals

Product Overview


A tower UPS with line interactive topology, the CyberPower BH1500 provides battery backup (using simulated sine wave output) and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking devices, and home entertainment systems. The BH1500 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. The BH1500 comes with a three-year warranty (including coverage of batteries) and a $500,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee.

  • Automatic Voltage Regulation
    AVR boosts the AC power and maintains a safe voltage level without switching to battery-mode, conserving battery life and delivering a cleaner signal to connected equipment.
  • Ultra-Quiet Operation
    Lowest sound emissions of any UPS in its class.
  • EMI/RFI Noise Filter
    Maintains clean power for connected equipment by filtering out electromagnetic and radio frequency interference to improve picture and sound quality.
  • Transformer-Spaced Outlets
    Widely spaced outlets accommodate transformer-based plugs without compromising the access of other outlets.
  • USB Connectivity
    HID compliant USB port enables full integration with built-in power management and auto shutdown features of Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
  • LED Indicators
    LED status lights indicate AC, Output, and Battery conditions.
  • Audible Alarms
    Distinctive tones identify when the model is running on battery power, if it is overloaded, or when the battery is low.
  • Resettable Circuit Breaker
    The user may use this convenient model reset switch in case of an overload.
  • PowerPanel® Personal Edition Software
    Monitors and controls a UPS with a simple dashboard interface. Free software download available. See the Resources tab of the online product page.
  • ISO and Safety Certifications
    All CyberPower manufacturing facilities are state-of-the-art and ISO-9001 Quality Tested. Our products are certified by the FCC, cUL, and UL.
  • Windows Compatibility
    Our PowerPanel® power management software has been fully tested and is compatible with Windows 2000, 2003, XP 32/64, Vista 32/64, 7, and Server 2008.
  • Three-Year Warranty
    CyberPower will repair or replace a defective UPS system (including batteries) within three years of the purchase date. See warranty for details.

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.
