Tripp Lite's SMART5000TEL3U intelligent, line interactive UPS protects server, networking and telecommunications equipment from blackouts, voltage fluctuations and surges in a compact rackmount housing. Completely self-contained UPS system occupies only 3 rack spaces (3U) in a standard 19 inch rack, making this model one of the smallest 5kVA UPS systems available. Included accessories support mounting 4 post rack enclosures. Large capacity 5000 VA/3750 watt UPS system accepts raw AC input, adjusting output to regulated 208V levels. One pair of 120V outlets support up to 600VA monitors and other low voltage accessories. Includes slot for internal Network Management Card option. Includes USB and 2 DB9 monitoring ports for unattended shutdown, remote control and monitoring of UPS system and power data. Five outlets (two L6-20R, one L6-30R and two 5-15R) allow the connection of high current 20 and 30 amp 208V connectors and up to two 120V devices (max 600VA at 120V).


  • Large 5000VA/3750-watt output capacity accommodates solitary large loads or multiple low-power loads
  • High power density 5kVA power module occupies only 3 rack spaces (3U)
  • 16 minutes half-load runtime (with a continuous load 2500VA; much longer runtime available at smaller loads)
  • Line-interactive voltage regulation corrects severe brownouts and overvoltages without using battery power
  • High voltage output supports 208V server, internetworking and telecom applications
  • Pair of 120V outlets supports up to 600VA for standard 120V monitors, voicemail and other low-power networking devices
