Small business and home users alike will soon discover that the new line of power protection products from Opti-UPS are not only cost-effective, but are also ripped with the kind of muscle that can handle most power problems. It offers special features such as a user-replaceable battery and user-friendly Opti-Extreme software. The PowerES-C is a line-interactive UPS, therefore it employs automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) technology to fight off fluctuating voltages. The circuit breaker on the back of the UPS is simply popped back in after a surge of power occurs, thus avoiding the hassle of having to replace a blown fuse. With 6-8 battery backup outlets available, along with Internet and phone line outlets, the PowerES-C unit is capable of protecting even more equipment from only one system. The Web-based Opti-Extreme software that is packaged with the PowerES-C units is able to support a wide range of operating systems and is equipped with multi-language capability covering nine languages. PowerES-C series will be available in Australia in August.
