American Power Conversion recently unveiled the S20 Power Conditioner with Battery Backup (S20BLK). Based on APC’s award-winning S15 model, the S20 features network manageability, temperature/humidity monitoring and a 28 percent larger power train versus the S15.
As a Crestron Certified Integration Partner and an InConcert Partner for AMX, the S20 can be integrated and managed within these or any other home automation network.
The S20’s built-in web server and RS-232 serial port provide your installer with multiple ways to peek in and monitor the unit and the components plugged into it.
The S20 is currently shipping with a black, anodized aluminum chassis. APC will be showing off the unit at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
