Protects Mission-Critical Rack-Mounted Equipment against Damage, Downtime and Data Loss
Tripp Lite's SmartOnline® SU5KRT3UTFMB Unity Power Factor UPS system with Maintenance Bypass Switch and Detachable PDU protects connected equipment against damage, downtime and data loss due to power outages, voltage fluctuations and transient surges. Unity Power Factor design enables full 5000VA / 5000W output capacity when used with hardwire 208V input power (output de-rates to 4800W with included L6-30P cord option). In double-conversion mode, this UPS system maintains perfect output by continuously converting AC input to DC, then reconverting UPS output to fully regulated sine wave AC with ±1% voltage regulation and zero transfer time between online and battery modes. Featuring true on-line, double-conversion operation, Tripp Lite's SU5KRT3UTFMB provides the highest level of UPS power protection for critical server, network and telecom equipment.
High Availability Configuration Offers Reliable, Expandable Battery Backup
Included Maintenance Bypass Switch is mounted on a detachable Bypass PDU that securely mounts to the rear-rails of a 4 post rack enclosure and remains safely in-place powering your equipment during UPS maintenance. The UPS connects to the Bypass PDU using a sophisticated blind-mate connector set with self-aligning guide-pins to ensure safe and reliable whole-UPS replacement with zero downtime for connected equipment. UPS battery backup keeps connected equipment operational through short power failures, and provides time to save data and perform an orderly system shutdown in case of a prolonged blackout. The internal battery set provides 14 minutes of support at half load and 5 minutes at full load. During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the battery fully charged so backup power will be available when needed. Advanced temperature-controlled battery charge management system provides efficient recharge and enhanced battery lifespan. For mission critical applications demanding continuous uptime, the 5kVA UPS can provide expandable runtime with optional BP192V12RT3US external battery pack (sold separately). Battery-independent restart ensures automatic UPS power-up after lengthy power outages, even with expired batteries.
Economy Mode Helps the Environment and Your Cash Flow
Operates with >98% full-load efficiency in optional economy mode significantly reducing BTU heat output and operating energy costs.
Intuitive Front-Panel Interface offers Convenient Monitoring
Front-panel LEDs indicate line power, AC output, On-battery mode, and Fault conditions. The LCD readout with scroll controls supports visual monitoring of a variety of control options to support advanced UPS settings and configurations. The panel rotates for comfortable viewing in rack-mount or tower configuration.
Pre-installed WEBCARDLXMINI Network Interface Offers 24/7 Access
Pre-installed Java-free HTML5-based WEBCARDLXMINI interface enables full remote access for site power and UPS status monitoring, configuration, control and email notifications via secure web browser, SNMP, telnet or SSH. It supports 10/100 Mbps auto-sensing for optimum communication with an Ethernet network. Automated alerts help prevent accidental overloads, power loss and downtime. Advanced Communications Ports USB and DB9 ports with included cabling enable data-saving unattended shutdown of connected systems when used with Tripp Lite’s free downloadable PowerAlert® software. Capabilities include detailed monitoring of load levels, self-test data and utility power conditions. DB9 ports also support basic contact-closure monitoring to report On-battery and Low-battery status for legacy systems. 
Versatile Installation Options
Hardware is included for mounting the complete 5kVA UPS system with internal batteries in 3U of space in an EIA-standard 19-inch 4-post rack. Use the optional 2POSTRMKITHD for 2-post rack mounting or the optional 2-9USTAND for mounting in an upright tower position. 
2-Year Warranty, $250K Ultimate Lifetime Insurance and Environmentally Responsible Design
The SU5KRT3UTFMB comes with a 2-year warranty and $250,000 of Ultimate Lifetime Insurance for any connected components damaged by a power surge (U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico only). It’s manufactured in compliance with strict RoHS specifications, reflecting Tripp Lite’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
