APC SC1500 UPS and ML330

Hi,

Can i use a APC SC1500 UPS together with a ML 330 server?

Is the waveform type "Stepped approximation to a sinewave" the wrong type?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
I think it should work, But please ask APC for confirmation.

I've consulted APC, they say it's not ok.

But is this because they wanna sell or is it based on facts?

You can consider ML330 server as big PC with better power supply and system BUS.

However invest in a Pure Sine Wave UPS if money is not an issue

TarunJain,

Thanks, especially the pchuide website helped me a lot!

Now i'm even more convinced that the man i spoke at APC was trying to solve the economical crisis by himself.... :-)
