How to Size a UPS Correctly for Custom Built PC 's
Storm Season Means Dead Workstations
With summer storm season almost upon us, what are you recommending that your customers buy for surge protection? Standard surge suppressors are not much more than extra outlets, even the better surge strips are really only designed to protect for one use. For superior protection use a personal UPS with automatic voltage regulation (AVR). This solution offers runtime in a power outage allowing you to save important work while offering array protection.
How do you determine what the correct power protection product is to recommend to your customers? APC has a really nice interactive power protection selector to help get you the right product.
There are a couple of things to be aware of when using this tool. If you are looking for Nexlink models, they are not listed, you will have to use the Intel product name which is incorporated into the Nexlink model. The next thing to note is the tool tends to suggest more battery than you probably need for a reasonable runtime, so just check and see if you need all that runtime.
