Brownouts, blackouts, surges, sags and spikes-that's what your
office equipment can look forward to for the rest of the year.
Surge suppressors alone won't cut it for mission-critical PC
data; you need a true uninterruptible power supply like the
Regulator PRO Gold. It not only smooths out jolts, but also
increases the juice to acceptable levels during under-voltage
episodes. A backup battery automatically kicks in during a true
catastrophe-say, when the lights go out then on again (nothing is
as destructive to a hard drive)-giving you up to 45 minutes to
safely shut down attached equipment. A fast USB connection to
Regulator PRO Gold's management software on your PC saves
scarce serial ports.
