Where to use a Back-UPS 600VA APC UPS
At your Desk
Give yourself the time to save documents and gracefully shut down your computer without the harsh impact on your electronics of a sudden power loss.
Wireless Router & IOT Devices
Stay connected via the internet when your power goes out. That wifi signal can still be available if your router is connected to a UPS.
Consoles, Gaming PC’s, connected hard-drives and your Twitch stream all stay on when the lights go out.
Television and Cablebox/DVR
Don’t lose your DVR recordings when the power flickers. A connected cable/satellite box will continue recording, even when the house is dark.
Can you adjust the alarm settings or totally disable the alarm?
Yes, UPS’s that are connected to computers can have their sensitivity settings adjusted in the PowerChute software; also you can specify what hours you want to disable the alarm, if desired. The alarm ‘mode’ can be set via the power button.
Does BE600M1 have a replaceable battery?
When it’s time to refresh the battery, APC offers a User-replaceable battery for model BE600M1 under part # APCRBC154 (sold separately). Depending on usage, a UPS battery typically lasts for 3-5 years before needing to be replaced.
How do you turn off the alarm?
You can temporarily mute some alarms with a 1-2 second press of the Power button, which mutes an alarm until the condition that caused the alarm is reset. Critical events (i.e. Battery replacement) require unit to be turned off.
How long will this UPS power my system when the power goes out?
The runtime of any UPS will vary based on the amount of power required by your the devices plugged into the battery backup outlets. In the PowerChute Software, you can see ‘Estimated Battery Time’ based on the power-draw of your connected devices.
Can I plug a printer into a UPS?
Due to the large amount of power used by printers, APC does not recommend connecting them to a UPS below 1500VA. If printers are connected, it may cause the UPS to transfer to battery repeatedly, exhausting the battery unnecessarily.
