Cyberpower Systems Signs On With Ingram Micro

Cyberpower Systems Signs On With Ingram Micro

Brings wide range of new power protection and UPS products to market

Auckland, New Zealand, 29 January, 2013. Ingram Micro, New Zealand’s largest distributor of technology products, announced today it has signed a distribution agreement with CyberPower Systems, a leading global manufacturer of professional power management and computer battery backup solutions, power management applications, and power accessories for desktop, workstation, and network equipment.

Melanie Wrann, General Manager, Volume Vendor Management for Ingram Micro, says power protection and management is a strong category with customers looking to protect expensive equipment from power spikes and brownouts and ensure continuity of power supply for critical systems in the event of power cuts.

“CyberPower Systems has a suite of products to suit a wide range of customer requirements from large enterprises and data-centres to SOHO offices to consumers looking to provide protection for their home theatre, home networking and high-end audio equipment,” Wrann says.

Brad Andrews, CyberPower’s National Sales Manager for Australia and New Zealand, says globally CyberPower’s success in the SME and home user market has been driven by being able to offer products with enterprise-level reliability, at a price that SME and home users can afford and making them easy to understand and use.

“Both consumer and SME customers appreciate the design of products such as our BRIC LCD UPS – which is as simple to use as a multi-way power box but offers sophisticated power conditioning, power and network protection and battery backup functionality combined with a simple, easy to understand LCD display,” he says.

Andrews says Ingram Micro will be distributing the full range of CyberPower Systems products in New Zealand, and expects CyberPower’s range of SME and Consumer UPS solutions to be particularly popular in this market, including:

The BRIC LCD UPS – a compact, power-box style UPS solution for home and small office use, with a built-in LCD screen giving instant access to power and battery information. Available in 650va and 850va models.

PFC Sinewave Series UPS – a pure sine-wave UPS for protecting mid to high-end computer and network equipment. Available in 1300va and 1500va models.

The Value Series UPS range - offering home and small office users clean and stable battery backup and surge protection for computer and networking equipment. Available in 600va, 800va, 1000va, 1200va, 1500va and 2200va models.

CyberPower’s SME UPS products come with PowerPanel® software. PowerPanel is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux and provides control and monitoring of the UPS and enables the safe and orderly shutdown of computer equipment in the event of a complete power-outage.

Alongside its SME and consumer UPS solutions, CyberPower Systems also offers a broad range of tower and rack-mountable UPS products for enterprise and data-centre use.

Wrann says that the new distribution agreement takes place immediately, and Ingram Micro has CyberPower stock available from the end of this month.
