APC's Smart-UPS Rack-Mount (RM) XL is designed for mission-critical applications where long run-times are essential, including PBXs, order entry database servers, computers supporting manufacturing or service operations and critical data communication links. According to the vendor, the XL enables businesses to survive a prolonged power outage. Run-time can be added by simply plugging in additional battery packs. The new rack-optimised and scalable 3kVA extended run puts 2400W of power into 3U (5.25 inches) of rack space. Suited for fully loaded racks, its black colour matches new higher-powered rack servers. Anixta, Express Data, Ingram Micro and Tech Pacific distribute the XL in Australia. Pricing starts from $1080 (including GST).
