Leading distributor, Ingram Micro, has signed a distribution agreement with global manufacturer of power protection and UPS products, CyberPower Systems.
A strong performer in the SME and home user markets, CyberPower Systems manufactures professional power management and computer battery backup solutions, power management applications, and power accessories for desktop, workstation, and network equipment.
In a statement, Ingram Micro senior director, Volume Technology Group for Ingram Micro, Julian Phua, that power protection and management is a growing product category as customers look to protect expensive equipment from power spikes and brownouts and to ensure continuity of power supply for critical systems in the event of power outages.
“CyberPower Systems has an extensive range of products that suit a wide range of customer requirements from large enterprises and datacentres to SOHO offices to consumers looking to provide protection for their home theatre, home networking and high-end audio equipment,” he said.
CyberPower national sales manager A/NZ, Brad Andrews, said globally CyberPower’s success in the SME and home user market had been driven by being able to offer products with enterprise-level reliability, at a price that SME and home users could afford, and by making them easy to understand and use.
He said Ingram Micro will distribute the full range of CyberPower Systems products in Australia including:
- The BRIC LCD UPS: A compact, power-board style UPS solution for home and small office use, with a built-in LCD screen giving instant access to power and battery information. Available in 650va and 850va models.

CyberPower’s SME UPS products come with PowerPanel software free of charge. PowerPanel is compatible with Windows, Mac, VMware and Linux and provides control and monitoring of the UPS and enables the safe and orderly shutdown of computer equipment in the event of a complete power-outage.
Alongside its SME and consumer UPS solutions, CyberPower Systems also offers a broad range of tower and rack-mountable UPS products for enterprise and data-centre use.
Phua said the new distribution agreement takes place immediately, and Ingram Micro will have CyberPower stock available from the end of April.
