Rated 4.7 out of 5�by 211 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5�by BE550G network compatibility I use APC to protect my computer and TVs here in Florida and never had problems. I do have a question on the BE550G data protection. The documentation says RJ45 10/100 Base-T Ethernet protection, does this include CAT6 gigabit? Thanks June 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by APC 550 great product! Our small business has 8 of these for our PC workstations and they work great when the power goes out. It gives us plenty of time to save our work before shutting down if the power stays out for an extended period. I also like the fact that APC gives you a return shipping label so you can ship an old unit that you're replacing back to them for free, and they gave us a discount for the new unit. The units are guaranteed for 3 years. Very happy with this product. May 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by APC Back Up Works great. East to install. Lots of plug ins. April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5�by This is a replacement for an earlier produsct. Very satisfied with both. March 29, 2015

Answer:�
Thank you for your inquiry. Although we do not manufacture UPS units specifically for pellet stoves, we recommend using a Smart-UPS with these stoves instead of a Back-UPS. Smart-UPS provide a pure sine wave while on battery power, which is something typically required by non-computer type loads.

Answer:�
Hello. Thank you for your question. Runtime will depend on how much electricity the computer is using during the outage. For example, if your computer draws 200W, you'll get around nine minutes of runtime.

Because it is being used. It beeps to tell you that its backup battery is in use and so you can get started with shutting things down before the backup goes completely empty.

Answer:�
Van,

When there is a power outage the BE550G will switch to battery power. When the unit switches to battery power it starts to beep to warn you that it in fact is using the internal battery to power your equipment. This serves as a warning to users in case it is not obvious that the power has gone out.

The beeping serves as a way to warn and remind users that the unit is on battery so they can safely save and shutdown anything that they may be working on.

Thank You.

We have only had the battery backup for a few months and it's hardly making that beeping sound which means it's time a for a new one. On the box it says 3 year warranty so what exactly does this mean? Do we need someone to come look at it? Do we go to the nearest Office Depot and have it checked out?

We currently have several of these battery backups in our office, however, some only have two outlets that our computer equipment will plug into even though there are eight outlets. Can you advise which product we should purchase that will have all eight outlets with the larger prong openings that will accommodate computer equipment?

PowerChute monitors and displays energy usage and reduces costs via customized energy management planning. Connect the included USB cable to your computer to easily use the software.
