Product Overview

The line-interactive AVR550U UPS system with AVR protection provides reliable battery backup and AC power protection against blackouts, brownouts, overvoltages, surges and line noise that can damage valuable electronics or destroy data. The eight-outlet 120V battery backup is ideal protection for your home office, media center or commerce components, including computers, routers, printers, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, ATMs, security systems and digital signage equipment.

Backup support allows you to work through short power failures and gives you enough time to safely save files and shut down your system in case of a prolonged blackout. Backup time varies according to load, but the line-interactive UPS system should keep an energy-efficient desktop computer with small LCD monitor powered as long as 32 minutes. During normal operation, incoming utility power keeps the replaceable internal battery fully charged, so backup power will always be available.

Four 5-15R outlets provide battery backup, surge protection and voltage regulation for your computer, monitor and other crucial components. The other four 5-15R outlets provide surge suppression only for printers, speakers and other desktop equipment regarded as non-essential during a blackout. A high >95% line mode efficiency rating reduces BTU emissions, energy consumption and, ultimately, your energy costs.

AVR protects your equipment from incremental hardware damage, data loss and performance problems caused by brownouts and overvoltages. The AVR550U can correct brownouts as low as 89V and overvoltages as high as 145V back to nominal 120V power continuously, all while keeping the battery fully charged and ready to take over in case of power failure.

A 316-joule surge suppression rating protects connected components from the harmful effects of power surges.

Various electromagnetic and radio sources found in virtually every home and business can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. Known as EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference), this line noise is a common cause of performance problems and can lead to incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video transmission problems. The AVR550U incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise so that it won't affect your equipment.

The UPS remains silent in both line and battery backup modes. The alarm sounds only to report low battery, battery replace, overload and fault condition. Dual front-panel LEDs report line and battery mode operation.

This USB port connects the AVR550U to a computer running Tripp Lite's free downloadable PowerAlert software to enable safe unattended file saves and system shutdown in case of a prolonged power failure. USB cable is included. Battery independent restart ensures automatic UPS power-up without user interaction after lengthy power outages, even when batteries are expired and require replacement.

The space-saving ABS housing fits on a desktop, shelf or anywhere else convenient to your workstation or home theater. Keyhole mounting tabs on the rear allow easy wall-mount installation. The five-foot power cord with NEMA 5-15P plug connects to any compatible AC outlet.

Tripp Lite AVR AVR550U is rated4.86 out of5 by36.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 550U saved my system on 2-occasionsI've used Tripplite products for several years. (surge protectors, Isobars, USB hub, and 550U UPS#. On 2 occasions I experienced massive power failure's at my former home . The first rendered the UPS unusable #which Tripplite replaced# and the second stopped the surge. In both cases my computer and attachments were left undamaged. Another time I required new software for the UPS and the technician worked with me until we got it to work #well past his quitting time). I can't say enough about Tripplite.

I recommended this product to anyone looks this kind of features. Also is my first time to buy this brand and I enjoy it a lot. I use also an APC UPS System and I used years ago a CyberPower Surge Protection. The Tripp-Lite is a trusted and one of the best brands in the UPS Systems segment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the $$The AVR550U offers longer battery protection and allows more voltage than say a 350va UPS unit. While the 350va unit is less expensive, it not really made for desktop PC's. The battery also tends to need replacement a lot faster. The 550va UPS by Tripp Lite gives just enough protection and battery backup that your desktop PC is well protected. Tripp Lite makes a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice!I purchased my first device, and work ok but then had a problem. Looking for warranty I found a nearby store that took it in with few questions asked and replaced my unit in 1 week. The new device is working even better, and I can say this is a quality purchase if you are looking to protect core devices (without going the energy usage). Great product, great choice, totally recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked the first day it was installed!Shortly after I installed the Tripp unit--on the same day it was delivered, our power went out and the unit did its job. We feel more protected having this connected to our computers. Also like that it is small and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Battery Back up works Great!Occaisionally we have power flucuations and outages here at our plant that can and have caused expensive damage to our High Tech. Lab Instruments. After installing the AVR550U's on our $40,000 Densitometers we've had no electrical damage to any of our instruments. The battery back up feature also allows us to control the shut down of the instruments which allows a better restart after power is restored.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Productthis is great product for the price; it has saved my system from several power outages; the only thing i dont like is that it makes an annoying beep when its just on the battery back up; i wish it only beeped when the battery was about to die vs it beeping every minute or whatever; other than that this is a great product especially for the price and recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tripplite Quality at a great priceThis is the fourth identical unit that I have purchased in the last 18 months for our customer installations supporting high performance PC's. Our environment suffers from severe storms and multiple blackouts during the winter season. By experience I have found that the Tripplite AVR circuits regulate fluctuations easily and that the UPS function switches on nearly instantly with enough stamina to keep our computers running and when necessary the automatic shutdown circuit interface with Microsoft Windows works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All I needOwned the ups for about 6 months and have had a few power flucuations with one outage. I have the internet modem, router, internet phone and main wireless phone base plugged into the battery. Surge protection has TV, Tivo and a few other components. When the outage occurred, all the battery connected components remained live, without interruption for over an hour. I feel much better knowing that all the expensive electronics will survive the power outages and flucuations. The only feature I wish the unit had would be a way to disable the beeping when the power is out. Overall, I am very pleased with the purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent support and timelinessTripp Lite provided excellent support when the product I purchased stopped functioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value in a brand name productModern computers and flat panel monitors no longer require large UPS backups due to their lower power requirements. A 550VA/300W unit is more than sufficient to support the above configuration. The Tripp-Lite reputation and a great price make these units a winning combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant after market service!A brief loss of power and surge in an instant power return killed the battery in our AVR550U. Of course, that meant that none of the equipment plugged into it was damaged. Tripplite was 100% terrific in providing a new unit. It was easy to install and has our Audio/Visual equipment is protected again. Thank you Tripplite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent products for small office applications.I use this product for power backup to my router and cable modem and it works extremely well in this application. I would recommend the AVR550U for home office users looking to meet power backup needs for their existing equipment needs. It has worked very well in both brown out and power outages. I am more concerned in my location about power flucuations rather than actual power outages although I experiance both. The accurance of bown outs is much more frequent in my area especially during the summer months. I also use the BCPRO600 for the power backup needs of my PC/Server. Using both products togeather supplies me with the backup needs I require. I use my BCPRO600 UPS for the same reasons as my AVR550U and I highly recommend both products for the home office needs.
