Motor on a UPS

This question was originally posted by Tony on APC forums on 4/30/2010


I have gotten different answers depending on who I talk to.

Can I put a motor load on an APC UPS? I heard it is possible if the UPS is sized based on the Locked Rotor current of the motor, which is huge! Is there a rule of thumb for sizing a UPS for this application?

Thanks for the help.
