APC BE700G-SP or APC BX800CI-GR?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/5/2014


Hello, I'm searching for a UPS to my office; I intend to plug (at least) 2 iMac's, 1 laptop and 1 printer.

APC BE700G-SP or APC BX800CI-GR: what's the main difference in between them? Do they serve the same goals? Which model would be more suitable??

Thanks.

Also, depending on what type of printer you have, it may be unwise to put it on the UPS.  If the printer is a laser printer, it could easily overload the UPS when the fuser, which take a lot of power, warms up.  If it's an ink jet printer or similar it probably would be ok.

Hi,

there are many differences between those UPS. The BE700G-SP has (4) Schuko CEE 7 (Battery Backup)  and (4) Schuko CEE 7 (Surge Protection) outlets.The BX800CI-GR has (4) Schuko CEE 7 (Battery Backup) outlets and automatic voltage regulation.

below are links to the product pages where you can compare the models.

The UPS server the same goal by providing battery back-up during a power failure. The most important thing is to be sure the UPS can handle your load. We recommend that your load not be any greater than 80% of available output. With the BE700G-SP that is 324 watts, with the BX800CI-GR that is 384 watts.
