TRipp Lite announces industry’s first Full-Feature UPS management software
for the macintosh platform
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (August 30, 1999)*Tripp Lite, a leading manufacturer of power
protection products, introduces the first UPS management software developed
exclusively to provide full-feature UPS management and control for Apple
Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert Software for Macintosh will allow users to view
operating conditions, load, capacity and other vital UPS information in an
easy-to-read graphical interface. Users can respond to such warnings as
temperature and battery drain to maximize protection of their systems.
PowerAlert Software allows users to set a shutdown delay in order to work
through the majority of brownouts and blackouts without having to shut down
PowerAlert Software also performs a self-test of the UPS and allows users
to automatically reboot the UPS or turn on or off AC receptacles when
connected to a Macintosh computer.
Prior to Tripp Lite’s introduction of PowerAlert Software for Macintosh,
existing UPS management software programs for Macintosh computers delivered
only contact-closure “dumb” management. This management allowed for
automatic shutdown only, whereas PowerAlert Software will now offer
full-feature UPS management and control.
Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert Software has been recognized throughout the
industry for its flexible UPS management capabilities. It has earned
accolades from such industry publications as VAR Business, Computer
Reseller News and Internet Week. PowerAlert Software is included with all
Tripp Lite line-interactive and on-line UPS systems and most of the
manufacturer’s standby systems. Tripp Lite customers can also download the
software at the company’s website, www.tripplite.com.
Enhanced service and innovative products have been Tripp Lite standards for
over 75 years. Tripp Lite has built a reputation as the leader in power
protection solutions, including UPS systems, AC and dataline surge
suppressors, line conditioners and network management accessories. Tripp
Lite commits itself to serving the global marketplace and maintains fully
