APC 1500 overview

  • 1Description

The Smart-UPS X 1500VA Rack/Tower LCD 230V from APC provides a continuous supply of battery power for connected items in the event of an AC power loss. It also safeguards devices from surges, spikes, lightning, and electrical disturbances. An Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) ensures clean and uninterrupted AC power by correcting low and high voltage conditions without using the battery. This UPS features a USB connection that enables configuration and control from a PC. It also features a SmartSlot for integrating it into a network for remote accessibility. Maintenance and servicing can be done from the front of the unit for easy installation and better space management.

This UPS features an intelligent battery management that prolongs battery life by using a charging method based on the battery's age, capacity, temperature, and other factors. An automatic self-test function periodically checks the efficiency of the battery and provides notification when the battery is nearing the end of its usefulness. The system will also notify you if the battery is disconnected. An LED indicator lets you see at a glance power and battery status. The UPS also features an automatic restart function which will automatically power up devices after AC is restored.

    APC 1500 reviews

    Smart-UPS X 1500VA Rack/Tower LCD 230V is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad From The Start A recurring issue. AVR Relay Weld An automatic voltage regulator (AVR) relay fault exists This occurred when the unit was very new. The fix from APC was a firmware update. This worked...(maybe) until the unit was out of warranty. Now it occurs again, except this time my research indicates this will happen everytime there is low inout voltage. Unit works great for a power outage, but falls on its face for low voltage. I'm betting the issue is a hardware issue firmware cannot fix, but only mask until the unit is out of warranty

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Smart UPS 1500 VA Rac/tower I traded my UPS 1000 for the 1500 VA to consolidated all my UPSs in one "box." I also had two UPS 800s. Pros: it works, it's quiet (unless it encounters a spike, then it makes a "bonk" noise) good documentation, good customer support for the first few days after you buy it Cons: If you have more than one computer, you've got to buy the network card; pricesfor the 1500 and the card are a bit high for a pro-sumer user; I discovered that it's cheaper to buy the system from your local computer store

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS My growing medical practice has had great success with the APC. We purchase them from Network Doctor in Englewood Cliffs NJ. They provide great support and really help us maximize the productivity. We have used them to run the EMR servers and Network Doctor really makes the process easy to order APC equipment, get them installed and get new servers up and running. I recommend the Network Doctor to install APC UPS equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The One Product You Should Consider I believe this product is *the* most useful product of everything APC manufactures, within limits. It has that sweet spot of value and features, divided by the cost, that probably no other product, particularly other UPSes, offers. You should definitely consider this UPS if you're looking for the biggest bang for your buck, at least with 120V input connection. You will like it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, sturdy product Purchased 2 of these and as with any APC product, works great, sturdy, and easy to install. My only issue (which is minor) is that I wish the front bezel snapped a little more snugly, or had a release lever. It's too loose and feels like you can bump into it and it will fall off. But it won't stop me from purchasing more of these units.
    Date published: 2011-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well The UPS functions flawlessly, just like all other APC UPS's that I have bought. It does look different from the picture however. The one in the picture has a front cover. The one I got did not. Mine looks much more industrial.
    Date published: 2011-07-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Solid Performer! I have deployed a number of SMX1500RM2U's in my customer's network and have never had one issue with deployment and service. As long as you maintain your UPS with timely battery replacements, you won't have any issues at all.
    Date published: 2017-04-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great UPS I chose this UPS for a small business w/ 2 servers & rack w/ minimal load currently but wanted ability to expand as the company grows again. Works like a charm! Does everything I wanted and then some.
