Selecting a UPS for your home or office

  • Protect your computer
  • Add to home security
  • Find a supplier easily

Schneider Electric makes selecting a UPS easy. Most homes and small office in South Africa need to have power running continuously, particularly when it comes to computers, security devices or essential electrical equipment.

When the power goes off, work can be lost, alarms can start beeping and lights are not available. The answer to this can be an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) that allows you to save your work, power down your computer, run a light and charge a phone.

Small UPS systems provide power for a few minutes; enough to power down the computer properly without losing information, while larger systems have enough battery for several hours and can run more than one electrical item. A UPS is also useful as a buffer between the main electrical supply and your computer, protecting it against surges or lightning

APC by Schneider Electric offers many products to power and safeguard the critical electronics at home that keep you and your family connected. Protect your high-speed internet connection to ensure 24/7 network access – especially during storms and extended power outages. This includes access to news and weather updates, important files stored in the cloud, streaming services and your email during an outage.

Schneider Electric is so confident in the performance of its products that it stands behind them with a guarantee. Back-UPS and SurgeArrest models include a lifetime Equipment Protection Policy that ensures customers get the peace of mind that only the market leader can provide.
