Four additional outlets with surge suppression-only are ideal for printers and other accessories not requiring battery support. Single-line, telephone suppression jacks protect modem or other peripherals with a standard dialup or DSL phone line connection. HID-compliant USB interface enables integration with built-in power management and auto-shutdown features of Windows and Mac OS X. Audible alarm and front panel LEDs offer status information regarding line and battery power operation. 550VA/300 watt power handling ability supports entry-level PCs for up to 17 minutes during power failures.
