What are the differences between the Back-UPS RS and the Back-UPS XS models (Does not Include BX/BR LCD Models)

Issue:

What are the primary differences between the Back-UPS RS and the Back-UPS XS models (Does not Include BX/BR "LCD" or BX/BR "G" Models)


Product Line:

BACK-UPS NS/XS/RS


Environment: 

BX1000, BX1500, BR1000, BR1500, BR1500BP, BT1500 


Cause / Resolution:

There are basically 2 differences between the Back-UPS RS and the Back-UPS XS models besides their names.

1. The Back-UPS RS models have both 1-line 2-wire phone/fax/modem data-line protection and 10/100base-T ethernet protection, where as the Back-UPS XS models only has 1-line 2-wire phone/fax/modem protection.

2. The Back-UPS RS models have both Boost* and Trim** as features of Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), where as the Back-UPS XS only has Boost. When the input voltage increases above the high transfer point of a Back-UPS XS model it will only go to battery.


*AVR Boost: The UPS is compensating for a low utility voltage. While the UPS can run in this mode indefinitely without any negative impact on the UPS, the circuit should be checked by a qualified electrician if the utility voltage is consistently low.

**AVR Trim: The UPS is compensating for a high utility voltage. While the UPS can run in this mode indefinitely without any negative impact on the UPS, the circuit should be checked by a qualified electrician if the utility voltage is consistently high.
