1300VA and AV equip

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/18/2009


Is there any reason I can't or shouldn't use a 1300VA ups on AV equipment? I am looking at purchsing a home theater system and have an extra APC 1300VA. It has the electronic noise filter, so why is it just for a computer and seems that using it for a home theater would be a no no? The powerload for all the equipment can be handled by the aforementioned APC product.

is it the BX1300LCD? if so, this UPS outputs a step approximated sine wave while on battery. this can cause problems with some high end equipment if they cant handle the step approximated sine wave (versus a pure sinewave). also, in general, more sensitive equipment may turn off or reboot because of the step approximated sinewave as well as the transfer time to battery (which is 4-6ms).
