CHICAGO, Dec. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection and connectivity solutions, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named its SmartPro® line of UPS systems a winner for Customer Demand in the Power Management Software and Tools category of CRN's 2019 Product of the Year Awards.
For the fourth consecutive year, winners were determined using a combination of editorial selection and a survey of solution providers who are currently selling the product to capture real-world satisfaction among partners and their customers. This year's survey garnered over 5,000 responses. To be named a winner for Customer Demand, products must meet a market or customer demand and create new customer relationships or improve existing ones.
Tripp Lite's SmartPro UPS product line includes tower and rack-mount models in a range of capacities from 500 to 5000 VA. All of these UPS systems feature reliable battery backup and line-interactive operation with automatic voltage regulation (AVR). Select models have lithium iron phosphate batteries for extended service life. Communication features include serial and/or USB ports, and select models can be managed via a network card. Tripp Lite's PowerAlert® network management software, available as a free download, provides an interface for monitoring and control.
The newest SmartPro UPS systems for small networks have a feature-set usually found in larger, more expensive units. Each compact unit has a high power factor for its size, an LCD touchscreen, battery-independent restart, a home-friendly alarm and a high efficiency rating.

It inspires us to continue expanding our offering to provide the best solutions available for our partners and their customers."
