  • Q: which product can I use to power my sump pump Want to have 4-8 hours of run time for my 1/3 HP pump.  (10 Answers)

    By Wild1Irishman 

    • Best answerThis would be controlled by the amount of times your pump kicks on during that period. That would vary based upon the water table in your area and rainfall. There are DC sump pumps available that will run on a wet cell (car 12volt) battery. That would be a more efficient way to handle your requirement. The pump would always run off the battery and you would use a car battery charger to keep the battery "topped off" and to recharge it fairly quickly if you do run from the battery for a long period of time. If you are subject to frequent, extended outages you might want to consider a deep cycle, marine battery.

  • Q: Does this back up us float charging to prevent over charging?  (10 Answers)

    By 7ft Monkey 

    • Best answerThis UPS has a feature called 'AVR' (Automatic Voltage Regulation). AVR is a feature of Line Interactive Topology. With AVR Technology, instead of going to battery during high or low input voltages, the unit will increase (BOOST) or reduce (TRIM) the voltage to a safe operating range. This is achieved by re-routing the input voltage through the internal Automatic Voltage Regulating transformer, all without running off of the internal battery. The main advantage of this is that it helps to prolong the life of the battery and extends the operating range in which the UPS can operate online.

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerThank you for your inquiry. Yes, the BN1080G will work with an active PFC power supply. However, we just need to be sure the solution is sized correctly. If the power supply is rated for 500 watts or higher, we would recommend using one of our Smart-UPS instead.

    • Best answerThank you for your inquiry. As a general policy, APC does not recommend the use of any of its products in life support applications.
