    • Features

      PowerChute Business Edition software provides UPS management, safe system shutdown and innovative energy management capabilities. In the event of an extended power outage, graceful unattended shutdown ensures no information is lost and time to recovery is minimized. Energy cost and CO2 reporting provides greater understanding of the energy consumed by IT equipment enabling improved energy efficiency. Highly valued risk assessment reports detect potential threats to availability while advanced analysis features help to identify the causes of potential UPS and power related problems before they occur, ensuring the health of your system.



      • Power Analysis Graph - Graph power and UPS events by time of day or week to easily identify periodic, recurring power disturbances.
      • Power event summary - Analyze power by pinpointing frequent or extended under and over voltages. Alerts you to unusual or chronic power situations that require attention.
      • Risk assessment summary - Maximize uptime by identifying potential threats to the availability of your equipment such as aging batteries or insufficient runtime.
      • Voltage analysis - Monitors input line voltage over time to ensure it is within high and low transfer parameters.


      • Discovery - Speed deployment by specifying remote networks segments or an IP address range to discover APC UPSs
      • Initial Set-Up Wizard - Enables ease of configuration and ensures IT equipment is protected as quickly as possible
      • Password Security - User-selectable password protection prevents unauthorized access, authorized against LDAP and Active Directory servers.
      • Secure communications - Secured web access via HTTPS, as the default, ensures that communication between the device and the client interfaces cannot be interpreted.
      • SMTP Authentication - Secure Mail Transfer Protocol support to authenticate e-mail
