APC expanded its online product offering in the one to 10kVA segment in February with the addition of the 7500 and 10000 to its Smart-UPS RT family of rack/tower convertible, double conversion UPSs. These models offer high power density while requiring only 6U (1U = 1.75 inch) of rack space. APC claims the 7500 and 10000 are ideal for protecting servers, networking equipment, telecommunication systems, industrial and medical equipment and other mission-critical applications. They deliver tight voltage and frequency regulation — zero transfer time to and from battery and input power factor correction embodied by the double conversion online topology. All units have hot swappable and user-replaceable internal batteries and customers have the flexibility to wire the input for either single-phase or three-phase.
RRP: Smart-UPS RT 7500, $10,500; Smart-UPS RT 10000VA, $12,800
