 User-friendly, multi-lingual (15 language), informative interface

Silcon Display Panel
The Silcon offers a powerful, informative user interface. The unit provides audible alarms for 38 different monitored functions.

Through the APC Silcon display panel, you can quickly and easily access key measurements. The information covers utility power, battery status, output volume, and percent of capacity. When an alarm condition occurs, an audible alarm sounds, the red alarm light goes on, and the display shows the cause of the alarm. The Silcon monitors 38 separate functional values, each of which can activate an alarm.

The Silcon also maintains a time-stamped log of all important power and UPS events. The log is accessible from the keypad for easy diagnostics.

Extended power outages can sometimes outlast your UPS battery power. If no one is there to shut your system down, you may end up with corrupted or lost data. Silcon offers unattended, safe, automatic shutdown as a standard part of your power protection solution. Two built-in RS232 ports and a relay port make connecting the unit to a monitoring station a breeze.
