SVEN Power Pro + 400 - UPS line-interactive type

The company introduced the UPS SVEN Power Pro + 400. As the producer, the electrical network in our country - a strong weapon against the foreign electronics. From loss of power for computers die much more frequently than in the West. as claimed 220 in the outlet - this is only an ideal which is rarely achievable. In fact, the voltage can be quite formally from 198 to 242 V, and the frequency of its floats from 49 to 51 Hz. Not every power supply will be glad leaning superfluous ten volts. SVEN Power Pro + 400 deals with the main task of uninterruptible power supply - still works equipment when power is turned on in 220V, 50Hz. Built-in stabilizer allows you to reduce / increase the power supply voltage without switching to battery operation and to allow long continuous work in any network.

If you disable the network, Pro +400 will support the work of equipment to a minimum level of batteries, and when the power is restored - it will automatically connect and recharge their batteries. Approximate retail price is 1,190 rubles.
