PRO-RT Overview

PRO-RT rackmount UPS LCD displayPerfect Protection For Rack-Mount Systems

The PRO-RT Series is a value-priced, yet feature-rich UPS incorporating line-interactive technology that preserves battery power by providing voltage regulation during brownouts or voltage sags. The PRO-RT Series can be used to support servers, telecom or VoIP systems, security systems, plus many other applications.

The PRO-RT UPSs include many useful features such as load-shedding with two load banks, independent battery bypass, plus auto-re-start when power is restored after an extended power outage.

Versatile Communications
Each PRO-RT model is compatible with Minuteman’s free downloadable SentryHD™ power management and diagnostic software. When installed on a workstation or server, the user gains complete control over monitoring and managing the UPS using a convenient web browser-based interface. The SentryHD software communicates via a built-in USB port on the UPS. In addition, managing the UPS within a Network Management System (NMS) is easy with the installation of an optional SNMP card.

Designed for versatility, the PRO-RT models can be mounted in a standard rack using the attached rackmount ears. All units can also be installed as a tower using the included feet. An optional kit is available for mounting the unit to a wall.
