Order High Quality Apc Battery Replacements In The UK

UPS Battery Shop has a wide selection of battery replacements for APC (American Power Conversion) by Schneider Electric.

One of the most well-known brands of uninterruptible power supplies, APC has been around since the 1980s. It was founded by three MIT Lincoln Lab electronic power engineers and initially focused on solar power research and development.

In 1984, the company’s focus shifted to power protection. In particular, focusing more on reliable power supplies for computer systems. 

Over the years, they’ve produced many innovative solutions, including their first UPS (the 450AT+) designed to protect computers from power disturbances. This marked the beginning of APC’s prominence in the UPS market.

During the 1990s, APC expanded its products to include more advanced UPS systems with enhanced battery technology. 

The batteries used in UPS systems were primarily lead-acid batteries, known for their reliability and cost-effectiveness.

Smart-UPS series

In 1991, they launched the Smart-UPS series, which became one of the most popular and trusted UPS products in the industry. These UPS systems featured hot-swappable batteries, allowing users to replace batteries without shutting down the system.

A few years later, they introduced the Back-UPS Pro series, which offered advanced battery management and monitoring features.

In the 2000s, they continued to focus on improving battery technology, in particular their monitoring and management systems. In 2007 Schneider Electric, a global leader in energy management and automation, acquired APC. This acquisition led to further integration of advanced battery technologies and expanded the range of products and solutions offered.

In the 2010s,  APC (under Schneider Electric) introduced lithium-ion battery technology in some of its UPS systems. Lithium-ion batteries offer higher energy density, longer life, and faster recharge times compared to traditional lead-acid batteries.

In 2015, they released the Smart-UPS On-Line series with lithium-ion batteries, targeting applications that require long battery life and high reliability.

APC’s UPS systems now support a wide range of battery types and configurations, helping to meet various power protection needs.

APC’s UPS systems

Key features and innovations in APC Batteries include automatic battery self-testing. This ensures the reliability of your batteries by performing regular self-tests. 

They also come with temperature-compensated charging. This can extend your battery life by adjusting the charging voltage based on temperature.

APC Battery Management Systems (BMS) provides real-time monitoring and management of battery health and performance. Their lithium-Ion technology offers a longer battery life, higher energy density, and faster recharge times compared to traditional lead-acid batteries.

The typical lifespan of an APC UPS battery ranges from 3 to 5 years.

However, this depends on how much they’re used, environmental conditions, and maintenance. Regular testing and proper environmental conditions can extend the battery life.

Many APC UPS models have what’s known as hot-swappable batteries; this means they can be replaced without shutting down the connected equipment. This makes them highly useful for maintaining power during the battery replacement process. 

Fortunately, knowing when to replace APC batteries is quite easy. 

Their UPS systems include advanced battery management features such as automatic self-tests, temperature-compensated charging, and battery replacement indicators. These features help data centres to enjoy reliable batteries with an optimal performance. 

This brand provides Replaceable Battery Cartridges (RBCs) that are pre-assembled and designed for easy installation. This makes the battery replacement process much easier and ensures compatibility with specific UPS models.

Did you know that APC prioritises eco-friendly practices in their battery designs?

That’s also that case at UPS Battery Shop. We offer an efficient recycling service for those looking to replace their batteries. 

APC UPS systems often come with software and network management cards that allow for remote monitoring and management. Users can receive alerts about battery status, charge levels, and potential issues, ensuring proactive maintenance.

The backup duration provided by an APC UPS battery depends on the model and the load it supports. Typically, UPS systems are designed to provide sufficient power to allow for safe shutdown of equipment or to keep critical systems running for a specified period.

APC by Schneider Electric offers warranties on their UPS batteries, often ranging from 2 to 3 years. They also provide support and resources for troubleshooting and maintenance.

UPS Battery Shop make it easier to find batteries compatible with your system. 

We appreciate that APC offers a wide range of UPS systems, with various capacities. It’s vital to order the correct batteries for your requirements.
