[Bye-Bye Drop Penalties] First Esports-Certified UPS Designed for Gaming Gear is Here
Last month — Schneider Electric announced the October 2020 launch of its all-new, APC Back-UPS™ Pro Gaming UPS. Today, as a newly announced D&H Certified Esports Provider, Schneider Electric shares the direct benefits that their new uninterruptible power supply (UPS) offers competitive gamers.
Professional players are sought after for their skills, but also their reliability and reputation. Unfortunately, tens of millions of gamers a year are disconnected unexpectedly due to power outages — and resulting penalties are the same whether you lost power or just quit.
Now, thanks to the upcoming APC Back-UPS™ Pro Gaming UPS, esports enthusiasts and pros alike can play with peace of mind, knowing their reputation won’t be tarnished over something outside their control. That’s because this brand-new UPS features sine wave battery backup power, delivering the smooth electrical current required by sensitive electronics and AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) to help protect against power irregularities and resulting glitches during an outage.
As esports teams invest in new equipment and spend more time competing in a remote environment, protecting their livelihood is critical. It’s about staying in the game. From surge protection and battery backup power, to the patented new reactor circle design that gives vital information at a mere glance, the APC Back-UPS™ Pro Gaming is made to keep players stay focused on your game. Adding the APC Back-UPS™ Pro Gaming UPS to their battlestations/entertainment centers allows athletes to be confident that they will remain:
- Protected: A gaming battery backup protects valuable gaming systems from more than seven different types of power interruptions
- Connected: After shutting down a game, the system continues to provide power to a router and/or modem
- In the Game: If the power is interrupted or lost during play, backup power allows gamers to finish a match and reap the rewards that would have otherwise been lost
The all-new APC Back-UPS™ Pro Gaming UPS features for competitive play:
- Reactor Circle: When the Gaming UPS is on battery backup power, the reactor circle ticks down so you can see how much time is left at a glance
- 160 Degree Slant: APC made sure the reactor circle is titled at 160 degrees, so it’s visible from nearly every angle
- Functional Lighting: When the Gaming UPS detects a power anomaly — like surges, dips, and even wiring faults — it notifies you with pulsing lights
