hey phoenix i already have 30 mins Backup Ups...Can u help me out on the inverter Part ... i have no idea about them....phoenix007 said:Instead of buying a UPS with 2 hour backup time why don't you buy an UPS with say 30 min. backup and an inverter which can provide power backup for 5 hours or so and connect them.This setup will cost you much less.
Ya that's right.Now all you need to do for that is to install the software that comes with it.vinyas said:finally decided on ... APC 1.5 kVA ....
now i heard that APC ups can shut down windows of battery is low.... is that true ?
Having a 400W SMPS doesn't mean the system is drawing 400W of power. It means that the SMPS can cater/supply to a load of 400W. Typically, a regular desktop system (P4 3gig / 512MB / one hDD / on ODD) consumes about 150W~200 in idle. just FYI.anirudh said:700w will be sufficient for a PC. (400w SMPS+100w monitor+200w for modems/speakers)
