Riello iPlug and England Fans Guaranteed Power During World Cup

Published by Jason Koffler on 02 June 2010

83% of the UK plan to watch the World Cup on TV this summer*; and with the traditional surge in half-time demand combined with the increasing use of air conditioning units, the resulting drain on the mains supply may well see an increase in damaging power disruptions. To ensure England fans catch every minute of the action, Riello UPS has introduced the new iPlug 600-800VA range of uninterruptible power supplies; specifically designed for domestic and small home office use.

Aside from sudden power cuts at key moments of a match, other issues such as surges, sags, transients and spikes can cause critical damage to increasingly sophisticated TV, IT and other AV equipment. So if you’re one of the many people who have bought new home cinema systems to watch the big games – there’s never been a better time to think about power protection!

Critical Power Supplies supply a range of Riello uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) ideal for protecting IT and AV equipment including TVs, Digiboxes, DVD players, Games Consoles, PCs, Scanners, Printers, Modems, Hi-fis, Phones and Fax machines in domestic and small home-office environments.

A part of the Riello UPS ECO Line of energy efficient UPS, the iPlug is a compact, versatile, and user-friendly ‘plug and play’ UPS; providing surge protection and up to 5 minutes of battery backup time to enable safe shut down of equipment.

The iPlug is packed with end-user features including an LED status panel, user-replaceable batteries, a built-in cable-tidy, and is also compatible with Riello UPS Powershield3 monitoring and control software (available as a free download).
