This UPS is a sturdy performer in load handling, passing at 100 percent of its rated load. It gives a good backup of 13
minutes at 80 percent of its rated load. Cold starting load isn’t a problem with it either. 

It comes with optional control software for automatic unattended shutdown of a PC. This is extremely useful in situations where a PC remains on for 24 hours, such as a server. The UPS also has a telephone-line surge-protection port. It has the maximum number of power outputs, a total of eight. One place where it loses points is its output voltage regulation, giving a maximum voltage of 263 V to the load. Ideally, this should not exceed 256 Volts. 


APC BackUPS Pro
  Type: 1000 VA line-interactive  Price: Rs 15,000
Backup: 12.7 min
Switchover voltage (max, min)
: 285 V, 176 V
Switchover time

At Rs 15,000, this is priced on the higher side. However, it is one the few UPSs that come with a two-year warranty on both the UPS and the batteries.
