    Default Simulated Sine Wave Output and APFC

    Simulated Sine Wave Output
    This UPS uses simulated sine wave output to generate a stepped, approximated sine wave to supply cost-effective battery backup power to equipment that does not have Active PFC power supplies.

    Given that most modern PC power supplies have APFC, maybe the days of non sine-wave UPS units are numbered?

    Very, very, few PSUs have issue with simulated sine wave input.

    I've run into one. And it was so long ago, I forget what PSU it was.
