which product is best for location audio recording?

This was originally posted on APC forums on 3/11/2008


hi. this is my first post here. i'm attempting to find an appropriate solution for location music recording. often in these situations you're working in a venue such as a church that has older wiring and overcurrent voltage (most of Manhattan runs around 122V). i'm looking for a UPS that can run silently, and offers voltage regulation. this does not have to be in one single unit.

additionally, i understand there are two main types of UPS': those that run offline, passing AC line voltage around the battery until needed and those that run online, passing voltage through the battery at all times. here's where it gets complicated and more questions come in! the advantage to online UPS is that all of the voltage going through the battery is conditioned, or better put, regulated within a tight voltage tolerance. a disadvantage to an online UPS is that it re-creates an AC sine wave based on an analog waveform. this waveform could never be perfect and i understand this is bad for audio as it could cause noise and unpredictable behavior from recording gear. on the other hand, offline units must produce some kind of negative effect when switching between wall power and the battery, right? what's a recording engineer to do?

Hi Charlie,

the best thing to do would be to take a look at our A/V specific line. This product line is designed by the same APC Engineers that have developed the other APC UPS systems.


The A/V line has power conditioners with or without battery backup.

The product line can be viewed at the following APC website: Link : [A/V Products|http://apc.com/products/category.cfm?id=15&subid=80]
