APC SMC1500 Features:

  • Green mode - Patent-pending operating mode that bypasses unused electrical components in good power conditions to achieve very high operating efficiency without sacrificing any protection.
  • Pure sine wave output on battery - Simulates utility power to provide the highest degree of compatibility for active PFC (power factor corrected) servers and sensitive electronics.
  • LCD Status Display - Provides key UPS status at a glance. Multiple status indicators with load and battery bar graphs.
  • High online efficiency - Reduces utlility costs, generates less heat.
  • Cold-start capable - Provides temporary battery power when the utility power is out.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging - Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.

Smart-UPS Features & Benefits:


  • Boost and Trim Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) - Gives higher application availability by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery (not available on all models).
  • Intelligent battery management - Maximizes battery performance, life, and reliability through intelligent, precision charging.
  • Power conditioning - Protects connected loads from surges, spikes, lightning, and other power disturbances.
  • Temperature-compensated battery charging - Prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.
  • Automatic restart of loads after UPS shutdown - Automatically starts up the connected equipment upon the return of utility power.
  • Automatic self-test - Periodic battery self-test ensures early detection of a battery that needs to be replaced.
  • Disconnected battery notification - Warns when a battery is not available to provide backup power.


  • Network manageable - Provides remote power management of the UPS over the network.
  • Audible alarms - Actively let you know if the unit is on battery, if the battery is low or if there is an overload condition.
  • LED status indicators - Quickly understand unit and power status with visual indicators.
  • Serial Connectivity - Provides management of the UPS via a serial port.
  • USB connectivity - Provides management of the UPS via a USB port (not available on all models).
  • Disconnected battery notification - Warns when a battery is not available to provide backup power.


  • User-replaceable batteries - Increases availability by allowing a trained user to perform upgrades and replacements of the batteries reducing Mean Time to Repair (MTTR)
  • Hot-swappable batteries - Ensures clean, uninterrupted power to protected equipment while batteries are being replaced
  • Predictive failure notification - Provides early-warning fault analysis ensuring proactive component replacement.
  • Resettable circuit breakers - Enables a quick recovery from overload events.
  • Battery failure notification - Provides early-warning fault analysis on batteries enabling timely preventive maintenance


  • Adjustable voltage-transfer points - Maximizes useful battery life by widening the input voltage window or tightening the output voltage regulation.
  • Adjustable voltage sensitivity - Provides the ability to adapt the UPS for optimal performance in specific power environments or generator applications.


  • Safety-agency approved - Ensures the product has been tested and approved to work safely with the connected service provider equipment and within the specified environment.
