The Smart-UPS is a series of enterprise-level uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) made by American Power Conversion (APC).[1] The units have a Smart Slot which accepts an optional interface card providing features ranging from network connectivity to temperature and humidity monitoring.[2] With the exception of the RT series, Smart-UPS units are line-interactive UPS systems, only running their inverters when grid power is unavailable.

All Smart-UPS units work with APC's PowerChute software which is available for a variety of OS'. Legacy Smart=UPS (Not SMX, SMT, or SURTD series) can also work with Network UPS Tools (NUT), a third party application, under Linux.[3] The software is designed to safely and automatically shut down any connected computers before the batteries are depleted.

[edit] Models

There are a few different variations in the Smart-UPS lineup.
Model Characteristics
Smart-UPS The standard model, supporting true sine-wave power.
Smart-UPS SC A simplified version of the Smart-UPS, with modified square wave output (and thus incompatible with many active PFC PC power supplies.[4])
Smart-UPS XL An "extended run" series, with an Anderson DC connector allowing up to 10 external battery packs to be daisy-chained to the main unit.
Smart-UPS RT A double-conversion / online variant providing no switchover delay during a power loss.
Smart-UPS VT Three-phase power for larger installations.

Most Smart-UPS units have at least one Smart Slot, with the larger (and in many cases older) models supporting two. Installing an add-on card into the Smart Slot will provide the UPS with additional features, beyond the default serial or USB connectivity.[2] The base AP9617 card provides fairly advanced features, such as e-mail notification and SNMP monitoring, as well as allowing remote control of the UPS via a web browser or telnet (to remotely switch off the load, for example.)[5] The Smart Slot is powered by the battery even when the UPS is switched off, allowing the UPS to be remotely cold-started even in a power loss situation (providing the network infrastructure is still powered up and functioning.) The card will also continue to work for a short while after the UPS has switched off due to a low battery condition.[citation needed]
