APC SMC1500 overview

  • 1Description

The Smart-UPS C 1500VA with LCD (120V) by APC is a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) with a 120V output and input, and 8x NEMA 5-15R battery-powered outlets. It features pure sine wave output on battery which simulates utility power for servers and sensitive electronics, an LCD status display for quick status updates at a glance, and is cold-start capable, which means the outlets provide AC battery power when the utility power goes out.

It is also an efficient unit, with a patent-pending operating mode that bypasses electrical components in good condition in order to provide a high operating efficiency to the rest of the load. Because it generates less heat, it also reduces utility costs, and it prolongs battery life by regulating the charge voltage according to battery temperature.

A host of other features are included in the Smart-UPS line, including but not limited to, remote network management, hot-swappable user replaceable batteries, and predictive failure notification.

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 utility 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.

    APC SMC1500 reviews

    SMC1500 Smart-UPS C 1500VA with LCD (120V) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice LCD display The Smart-UPS by APC have a pure sine wave which is important if you work in pro audio. I've been using APC for years and been happy with their equipment and customer support. This unit had a strange random noise you could hear every 3 seconds, I contacted APC and they are shipping me a new replacement unit and paying for the shipping to return this unit to them. These problems are rare with their equipment, but they take good care of you. This unit uses microlink which isn't fully supported by apcupsd if you are running this on a server for Mac, Windows or Linux. But it still works to handle a proper shutdown in the event of a power outage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind My husband and I have a monthly publication. Our old, powerful (fourteen year old) UPS finally died-- We live rurally and have frequent brown outs as well as outright power failures in almost every storm. Panic. The customer service agent at APC was extremely helpful in recommending the size UPS's that we needed, and we ended up buying two. Extremely easy to set up, completely quiet, I don't even know it's there...except now I have peace of mind that my work will not be lost, and my computers are safe from surges. I have not had to test them in a power outage yet, but I'm not worried. Thank you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm happy When I buy a product such as a UPS, I'm basically deciding whether a higher price is worth it based on the company's reputation and my prior experience. That was the choice I faced when my over 10 year old UPS finally died recently. I bought this unit rather than a competitor's unit because I did not want to take a chance on another company I had no experience with. A few extra dollars for a UPS was worth it compared to the cost of replacing all the gear it's protecting. But it was a close decision because of the price differential between this unit and a similar one from a competitor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant product, performs as promised Secures a small network or mission critical work stations. I have never lost data or a computer do to line surge or power failure since I have invested in APC Smart UPS. Solid Performance where you need it. My experience is batteries need to be replaced approx every five years or you can return the unit for an upgrade. Our business currently has seven Smart UPS units including a large rack unit. We have used them for years. All have performed as promised.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the doctor ordered. I bought this product to protect my high-end PC and to preserve the integrity of the stored data. A pure sinewave was a must for my application. The utility power in my area has been less than ideal lately so now I have peace of mind during periods of brownouts and power fluctuations. The LCD Status display has already registered 10 Hits in just 2 months. This unit has performed wonderfully. I would highly recommend this UPS to a friend.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fickle Mac support After wading through the plethora of UPS options for a desktop, I decided to go with this unit to replace an almost identical 1000VA that died. That unit worked great, but had many problems interfacing with Mountain Lion on a Mac. I was assured this unit works fine. It does not. It does not show up in the System Preferences. I've done the Mountain Lion update (twice), repaired permissions, and all other system utilities. Nothing wrong with my hard drive or my system, yet the unit does not show up. So the shutdown features are no longer available, and no Knowledge Base articles (or tech support) for fixing this issue. The unit is probably 5 stars, as was the previous. The 3 stars is for the total lack of Macintosh support by APC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for small business Perfect size for a single server with networking equipment and VOIP phone switches without a rack. With USB and serial communications, works well with PowerChute for controlled shutdown.
