Minuteman Launches New EnterprisePlus LCD Battery Backup Systems

New configurations and features add value to the popular UPS lineup

DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Para Systems, Inc. today announced the latest upgrade to its popular Enterprise Series with the new EnterprisePlus LCD UPS products. These updated battery backup systems protect vital networking, security and communications equipment from all power problems. Upgraded features include an LCD status display for monitoring power and system status, separate standard and extended runtime models, additional outlets, ENERGY STAR® certification on select models, and more. All of this adds up to a powerful follow-up to the widely-sold EnterprisePlus UPS series.

The EnterprisePlus LCD provides complete power protection from all electrical problems, including spikes, surges, sags, brownouts, and blackouts, in a versatile rack/tower/wall convertible format. True sine wave electrical output ensures the best power for sensitive electronic equipment. The EnterprisePlus LCD also works with Minuteman's all-new Sentry HD management software, enabling complete control and management of battery back-up system.

"The Minuteman EnterprisePlus LCD series provides managers of information technology systems, security systems, and communications systems fail-safe protection from all power anomalies and allows higher-level management of mission critical applications," stated Bill Allen, director of marketing for Minuteman. "Available in five different power ratings ranging from 750VA to 3000VA, the EnterprisePlus LCD offers unmatched flexibility and value."

Traditionally, all Enterprise Series UPSs have featured the ability to add hours and even days of runtime with XL and EXL battery packs. Each model is now available as a standard runtime version (RT2U), offering cost savings for standard runtime applications, and as an XL version (RTXL2U) which offers the option of adding external battery packs.

"We feel the addition of standard and extended runtime options presents an excellent opportunity to build on the great value the Enterprise Series has always offered," Mr. Allen added.. "With savings up to 13% and the same great protection, it's a win-win for standard runtime users whose applications do not require long battery backup times."

Select models in the new lineup also meet ENERGY STAR standards for efficiency, allowing users to see decreased utility power costs. This, coupled with the ability to smartly manage attached equipment with the included management software, ensures that EnterprisePlus LCD will be a smart choice for both technical and accounting departments.

Along with the upgraded features are some long-standing strengths of the Enterprise line. EnterprisePlus LCD features line interactive automatic voltage regulation (AVR) for efficient protection, an SNMP communications slot for optional network management of the UPS, and Minuteman's industry-leading 3-year warranty that includes non-prorated battery coverage. Five-year extended warranty plans are also available.

The new EnterprisePlus LCD is positioned to provide complete power protection for sensitive electronic equipment including servers, data storage, network devices, security systems, phone systems, and more.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
