Leaving your equipment unprotected risks the possibility of damage and data loss due to power outages, voltage fluctuations and transient surges. Requiring only two rack spaces (2U) in a standard rack enclosure, Tripp Lite's SU1500RTXLCD2U SmartOnline™ UPS System protects connected equipment against data loss, downtime and equipment damage due to these common power problems. Featuring a 1500VA/1350W capacity and a superior .9 power factor, it supports more equipment than comparable models. With true on-line operation with pure sine wave output and zero transfer time to battery, it provides the highest level of power protection for mission-critical equipment. Internal batteries support connected equipment during blackouts, and runtime is expandable with optional external battery packs. The SU1500RTXLCD2U has six outlets, organized in two individually controllable load banks to reboot select equipment on demand or maximize battery runtime for mission-critical equipment. With its easy-to-use LCD interface, the SU1500RTXLCD2U puts you in control of your application by reporting alarms, runtimes, and over nine operating modes and conditions. USB and DB9 communication ports work with the included PowerAlert software to support messaging of detailed operational data, monitoring and unattended shutdown. The SU1500RTXLCD2U comes with a 2-year warranty and $250,000 of Ultimate Lifetime Insurance for connected equipment.

Ideal Protection for Mission-Critical Rackmount Equipment

The SU1500RTXLCD2U provides a 1500VA/1350W load capacity and a .9 power factor to support more equipment. It also features true on-line operation, reliable battery backup and comprehensive power management capability in just 2U of rack space. Featuring six outlets, a 1500VA/1350W load capacity, USB/DB9 ports and a slot for an optional SNMPWEBCARD, the SU1500RTXLCD2U offers a complete power protection solution for servers, storage devices, telecom systems and other mission-critical applications.

True On-Line Operation

The SU1500RTXLCD2U provides the highest level of protection available for mission-critical equipment. It actively converts raw incoming AC power to DC and then re-converts it back to regulated, filtered AC output with a pure sine wave, completely isolating connected components from all power problems.

Reliable, Expandable Battery Backup

UPS battery backup keeps connected equipment operational through short power failures, and provides time to save data and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The SU1500RTXLCD2U's internal battery set provides 4.2 minutes of battery support for a full load (1350 watts) and 14 min. for a half-load (675 watts). During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the UPS battery fully charged so that backup power will always be available if needed. For mission-critical applications demanding continuous uptime, the fully scalable SU1500RTXLCD2U can provide expandable runtime with optional external battery packs, sold separately (Tripp Lite BP24V28-2U and BP24V70-3U).

Highly Efficient Operation Reduces BTU Output and Energy Costs

The SU1500RTXLCD2U features an optional, highly efficient economy mode setting that can significantly reduce a facility's energy costs. In economy mode, the UPS operates with 94% efficiency, minimizing heat output, reducing cooling requirements and consuming less electricity.

LCD Status Display and Audible Alarm

The SU1500RTXLCD2U features a combination front panel LED and LCD screen that allows IT personnel to monitor the unit's operating mode and pertinent data such as load percentages, power factor, input and output volts, battery charge and estimated runtimes. An audible alarm sounds in case of power-failure, low-battery, overload and fault conditions.

USB/DB9 Ports, SNMP Capability and Included PowerAlert Software

The SU1500RTXLCD2U features a USB port and a DB9 port (cables included). Used with Tripp Lite's included PowerAlert software, these communication ports provide comprehensive network power monitoring and control. Capabilities include UPS and line power status messaging (on battery, low-battery, power restored, AC line voltage, DC battery voltage and remaining battery capacity), timed inverter shutoff after unattended shutdown, and UPS output power control for delayed or immediate reboot of connected devices. The SU1500RTXLCD2U also accepts an optional SNMPWEBCARD accessory that enables the UPS to operate as a managed device via the SNMP network.

Individually Controllable Outlets

The SU1500RTXLCD2U's outlets are arranged in two load banks, with three outlets per bank. These load banks are individually controllable via a software interface to reboot locked-up equipment or shed nonessential loads to maximize battery backup time for mission-critical equipment.

Tel/Ethernet Surge Suppression

A sudden power surge or spike on a phone or network line can damage or destroy electronic components and wipe out irreplaceable data. The SU1500RTXLCD2U features one set of tel/Ethernet (RJ45) jacks that provide surge protection for a standard phone or network connection (cable not included). Its 570-joule surge suppression rating protects connected components and data from the harmful effects of power surges.

EMI/RFI Line Noise Filtering

Various electrical and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and performance problems. By providing regulated, filtered, pure sine wave AC output, the SU1500RTXLCD2U completely isolates connected equipment from disruptive line noise.

Versatile Installation Options

The SU1500RTXLCD2U requires only 2U of rack space in a standard 4-post rack enclosure (mounting accessories included). It can also be installed in a 2-post rack using the optional 2POSTRMKITWM accessory, or in an upright tower configuration with the optional 2-9USTAND accessory.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The SU1500RTXLCD2U comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment and a 2-year warranty.
