Apc surge protector and battery backups

Can you use these battery backups with other products besides computers? For example, my father has a bariatric bed (a special bed that needs to be plugged in to stay inflated), and I am worried about what will happen if the electricity goes off. Can I plug the bed into the APC Surge Protector and Battery Backup (series 350)?

    Thanks. That's what I thought. I'm trying to locate and speak to the manufacturer because I cannot believe they wouldn't have some kind of solution to that situation; not that the electricity goes off that often...but...

You have to have the power rating rated in amps of the bed...if the rating of your bed and the system are same or even less than that..(i.e. the rating of television is less than that of computer monitor,so u can connect tv for long time than monitor when power goes off ) then u can surely use it.....but it ll provide the supply only till the back up is stored in the battery,when the power goes off

My apc surge protector back up ES 650 has a high pitch sustained high ring for the past day.

1st I see you posted this question in the Printers area. You should not plug printers, particularly Laser Printers, into a UPS. Surge suppressor is fine just not the battery backup. Depending on the age of the APC, you may need to replace the batteries. You may also try turning off the entire unit then pressing the reset and turning it back on.

Grinding noise

I just chatted with Dell support about this since I have the same problem of the grinding noise on my C1760NW Dell printer. I have it plugged into an APC backup battery which acts like surge protector (unless power goes out then battery kicks in). He said the printer needs more power and that surge protectors and battery backups are not good for this printer since they restrict the power which sends less power to the motor and fuser than what it was designed for. So with less power from the APC backup/surge protector, the motor moves very slow and may not fuser the toner to the page correctly and can cause permanent damage over time. So I plugged into the wall directly instead and the grinding noise went away immediately even when printing 10-15 pages right after plugging into wall, but then the noise came back when I printed a bigger job. So for now I'm letting it cool down for a couple hours and crossing my fingers that the damage is not permanent. So... answer is plug it into the wall directly for maximum power and hope that your printer is not permanently damaged. By the well, Dell support chat was awesome.

It is probably a bad battery. They usually don't last much longer than 2-3 years. You could try replacing the battery, but I would suggest just replacing the whole UPS with a new model.

I want to use the apc 650 pro to run on my 900 watt generator.I will be pulling about 400 watts,will this smooth out the voltage from my generator to my radio? Is there anything I must do to use the apc in...

the battery back-up will smooth out the voltage, You will definitely need a battery in or else it will beep nonstop and drive you batty! the APC should have surge protected outlets already built into it. And since you will be using it outside of a computer environment, im guessing on a worksite, there will be nothing extra you need to do besides plugging it in. I would suggest plugging it into a stable voltage for the first hour or so to allow it to charge the battery.

Surge protector, minimizes voltage spikes or burst that could damage your electronics. You may not see it doing anything but it does. It clips those voltages to the right rating befrore letting them in to your system.

I hope this helps.
