Because Life Always Needs to be On.
Provide an emergency power supply for your electrical equipment to protect your investment from unexpected power disruption, including spikes, surges and voltage dips.
Power Surge Protection: Stabilises the main electrical line voltage to your devices.
Refined Power Supply: Protects connected devices from dips and spikes caused by lightning.
Instant Power: Power to your equipment the exact moment the power goes out, protecting you from data loss or unexpected interruption.
Ensure reliable uptime and clean power for your critical devices.

Safeguard Your Hardware and Data

If the power goes out, you’ll stay connected to your critical devices. By connecting your modem/WiFi router, smart home devices, television/streaming devices and smartphones to a UPS you can give yourself the time to save documents and gracefully shutdown your computer and network-attached storage without the harsh impact of a sudden power loss.

Gaming & Professionals

Protect professional equipment including high-end desktops, gaming PCs, workstations and network-attached storage.

Home Entertainment

Protect Home Entertainment devices including TVs, set-top boxes, media players and speaker systems.

Smart Home

Protect Smart Home devices including smart speakers, home security and surveillance cameras.

Best-In-Class Runtime

The new Back-UPS Pro models have longer runtime capabilities. During a power disturbance, keep your devices connected longer.

Additional Features

1Gb Network Protection

Safeguards your equipment and valuable files from “back door” surges traveling along data lines without sacrificing internet speed.

LCD Interface

A quick and easy to read screen that provides information about the utility and UPS conditions.

Automatic Voltage Regulation with Boost and Trim

The BR1600MI UPS protects connected devices from dangerous surges or spikes in voltage. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) technology consistently maintains safe voltage conditions, while saving backup runtime for power outages.

Visibility and Manageability Software

In the event of an extended power outage, prevent potential data loss or corruption with PowerChute Personal Edition Software.
