Have just purchased and fitted 1200 va 720w UPS.All working according to info.on ups screen. I am now getting paranoid by to much reading!!
22" screen ,windows 7 ultimate, 500gb memory 4 gb hard drive ,broadband phone ,skype and usual cards etc Would you suggest that 720 w is ample.I have set it for close down after 8minutes and manufacturer says 8 -20 minutes
I am not technically minded and live up in the mountains in Spain and receive broadband and phone line by radio signal and often get power cuts
I have an APC Back-UPS XS 1300 with the APC PowerChute Personal Edition utility installed.
What I have connected and running on this UPS is a 30" Samsung SyncMaster 305T Plus LCD monitor, my PC which has an overclocked Intel Q9550 CPU with 8GB RAM, 2 x nVidia 8800GTS 512 video cards in SLI, 4 Hard Disk Drives, DVD drive, external Altec Lansing powered speakers, DSL modem, and a router.
The APC PowerChute Personal Edition utility is reporting a load on the battery backup of 382 Watts and an estimated battery time of 11 minutes.
Since your configuration has a lighter electrical load than mine I think you should be fine.
Thankyou ,very much appreciated and you have put my mind at rest.
We have literally had a power cut a few seconds ago and PC and bits and bobs did not trip but turned it tv,s etc off and had to be re set but pc was perfect ok
