I would like to thank Sanyo Denki for supplying the review sample.
A few months ago I reviewed an "off-line" uninterruptible power supply here. An off-line UPS is one that switches over to the battery backup after the power is lost, ideally in such a short time that there is no disruption in power for the attached components. Another type is an "on-line" UPS, which runs from the battery all the time, charging the battery as it is needed. The unit I will be showing you today is a true on-line UPS solution. To quote CSE Magazine:
These days, however, sensitive electronic loads often can't tolerate a power outage of even one cycle and should be protected by an online UPS that provides power to the load continuously and can switch to backup power without interruption. By cleaning the normal power, online UPS systems also provide power free of interruptions, voltage or frequency variations and transients.Features:
