Questions regarding UPS...

This was originally posted on APC forums on 7/16/2012


I have been using APC hardware products for a while long before APC became a part of Schneider Electric. I currently own four products: an APC Personal SurgeArrest, 7 outlet, phone line protection SKU PER7T, an APC Professional SurgeArrest, 8 outlet, 2 pairs phone line protection SKU PRO8T2 & finally APC Performance SurgeArrest 11 Outlet with Phone (Splitter) and Coax Protection, 120V SKU P11VT3 & APC Back-UPS 350, 230V. Here is the layout & what is connected to each.

I have the APC Personal SurgeArrest, 7 outlet, phone line protection SKU PER7T in the living room, APC Professional SurgeArrest, 8 outlet, 2 pairs phone line protection SKU PRO8T2 & APC Back-UPS 350, 230V on one side of my home office/bedroom with Dell & HP connected and APC Performance SurgeArrest 11 Outlet with Phone (Splitter) and Coax Protection, 120V SKU P11VT3 on the opposite side of home office/bedroom with Macintosh/external HDs/scanner. As most know there are some APC SurgeArrests & computer accessories that have odd shaped/large block style power adapters that either cover some of the power outlets on the SurgeArrest & Back-UPS or are horizontal rather than vertical thus forcing the odd shaped/large block style power adapters to be connected on the end enough outlets to accommodate. Any recommendations would be appreciated?
