  • Questions about UPS

    Posted by:

    Questions:

    For the UPS’s, are there any specific requirements for runtime in the event of a power outage?  And, will St. Mary Parish School Board only be plugging in the switches being requested in the RFP to the UPS’ or will additional equipment be plugged into the UPS’s in addition to the switches being requested?  If additional equipment will be plugged in, can you provide a listing of the additional items to include manufacturer name and model number that will be plugged into the UPS’ please?

    Response:

    We currently use the APC SMART UPS X 1500VA RACK/TOWER LCD 120V in our school racks

    Only “erateable” switches will be in the school racks, we use Brocade/Ruckus switches.

     

    Questions:

    Do you have a model number for the current UPS that are standardized in your school?  

    Response:

    We currently use the APC SMART UPS X 1500VA RACK/TOWER LCD 120V in our school IDFs.
