In a modern IT-centric society, data loss due to power-outages is not only a business risk but also a risk for everyday home users. Globally, businesses have lost billions of dollar worth of data due to power outages, and most studies does not even take into account personal lost of priceless data like family pictures and videos. This is why Concepts Computer and Schneider Electric (manufacturer of APC products) will be providing three new, affordable models of UPS from APC – World Leader in Power Protection. The new models are the APC BV650, BV800 and APC BV1000 UPS.

Known for its quality, innovation and industry leading service and support, APC (American Power Conversion) is working diligently to improve the manageability, availability and performance of data-critical systems through innovative solutions, and Concepts Computer is also working hard to provide affordable power-outage solutions from APC for both commercial and, more importantly, personal home-use.

All three of the UPS models are the latest in APC’s line of affordable UPS for SOHO (small office/home office) and personal home-use, and are perfect for those in need of quick and easy solutions for multiple PCs or even just a single home PC. The three models are rated for 375 Watts at 650 VA, 450 Watts at 800VA, and 600Watts at 1100VA respectively, this means that all three models will be able to offer protection for your data and hardware from power-outages, power-surges, power-spikes and even lightning-strikes.

Made as user-friendly as possible, APC has provided them with single-step battery connections, hassle-free cold start function, and the ability to power low and high powered devices. And not to forget keyhole sockets which makes mounting possible for all nooks and crannies of most houses, making them the perfect solution at home.

We understand the importance of our digital memories like family pictures and videos so this is why we focused on providing affordable solutions for them.” Zul also added, “Even if these UPS power solutions only provide an extra 5 minutes of up-time at home, this still means you will have 5 minutes to safely shut down your computers and save all your digital personal memories.”

Also at the press conference, Firdaus bin Abdul Samad, Sales Manager for Schneider Electric in Brunei Darussalam, also added, “As our society evolves and moves forward towards the digital platform for their personal data storage and becoming more open and vulnerable to data-loss due to power outages, this is where APC and Concepts Computer come in and provides affordable UPS solutions, perfect for homes.” He continued, “APC are also very committed to their products and this is reflected in the 2 years warranty we provide even for our most affordable solutions like the APC BV650 and all the way to our more expensive corporate UPS solutions.”
