Eaton Corporation 3S battery protection power/surge device

Eaton says that its 3S battery backup units offer users a simple solution that can protect their important electronics from electrical surges and brown-outs.

The Eaton line of 3S battery backup products are available in either 550VA or 750VA sizes, which is enough juice to keep a typical computer running for as long as 45 minutes to support a user's safe shut down during a power failure.

Most people’s idea of power protection are those $10 plastic power strips that are sold throughout mass-market box-box stores across the country. Very few realize that those inexpensive power strips provide a limited shelf life of protection and once that protection goes their plugged in electronics are susceptible to the dangers of power surges.

Eaton Corporation‘s 3S line of battery backup products offer small office and home office (SOHO) users, as well as standard homeowners a choice of either a 550VA or 750VA products that are designed to protect their electronics, while also providing battery backup insurances.

The 750VA battery backup unit incorporate the company’s EcoControl power outlets, which Eaton says help users to cut as much as 30 percent of their energy consumption, and both units feature Eaton’s Power Protector software, which is engineered to protect plugged in devices from any power disturbances. In the event of a power failure the battery backups provide as much as 45 minutes of backup power to allow users to safely power down their computers, NAS drives, DVRs and projectors.
