Searching for an UPS that can power control panels (power consumption ranging from 200VA to 800VA). The problem is that the control panels are directly hooked up to the electrical service panel (there are no power outlets).

well at one point, we had din rail UPSs with hardwire out with smaller VA amounts but i think that product line is in phase out/transition so the next smallest UPS with hardware out capability would be [SMT2200|http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SMT2200].

Thank you for your fast answer,
I just realized my question wasn't really clear (or I did not fully understand your answer); I was wondering if i could find an UPS that can be hardwired IN/OUT. This way, I can avoid adding an electrical cord/plug to the control panels and an electrical outlet for the UPS. It would simplify my design and lower the overall cost.

oh yes, i think we have hardwire in/out for that too. with SMT2200, you can use the [SUA031 hardwire I/O kit|http://www.apc.com/resource/include/techspec_index.cfm?base_sku=SUA031&tab=models].
i know thats sort of big VA wise versus what you mentioned though.
