MGE Office Protection Systems introduces power-breakthrough: ultra-thin power protection for workstations and servers

New Feature-Rich Ellipse MAX Series from 600 to 1500VA First to Provide Comprehensive Surge Protection.

MGE Office Protection Systems, a world leader in providing end-to-end power protection systems for today's power-hungry computing, IT and industrial applications has announced its new Ellipse MAX Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) family that is the first of its kind to offer sophisticated yet affordable power protection for high-end PCs, workstations and/or entry level servers.

The new Ellipse MAX family includes Advanced Surge Reduction (ASR), a unique function in the UPS market. This surge protection function is certified to the IEC 61643-1 standard.  Protecting telephone, broadband and Ethernet 10/100 MB communications, the built-in ASR capability provides comprehensive cost-effective protection against all types of damaging power surges that can be transmitted through to sensitive workstations and servers. In addition, the AVR automatically corrects power supply voltage without using the UPS battery V thus prolonging the life of the battery.

Specifically designed to meet the demands of small and mid-sized businesses, the Ellipse MAX is an affordable yet full-featured solution for protecting power-hungry workstations and servers. Featuring USB or Serial Port connectivity, Line-Interactive topology, and Advanced Surge Reduction, users now have a feature-rich solution for a myriad of power problems.

"With Ellipse MAX, we give professional users the best service/price ratio with a product that combines for the first time ASR surge protection, Line-Interactive technology and 2U rack installation," emphasizes Christophe Jammes, SoHo and Networks Product Manager at MGE Office Protection Systems.
