CyberPower LX1500GU3-FC 1500VA Battery Backup – Reliable Backup Power and Protection for Your Equipments

A mini-tower UPS with line interactive topology, the CyberPower LX1500GU3-FC provides battery backup (using simulated sine wave output) and surge protection for desktop computers, workstations, networking equipment, smart home devices, and home entertainment systems.

The LX1500GU3-FC uses Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to correct minor power fluctuations without switching to battery power, which extends battery life. AVR is essential in areas where power fluctuations occur frequently. The LX1500GU3-FC features an advanced multifunction control panel with a color LCD to quickly confirm status and alerts at-a-glance. Two USB charge ports (one Type-A and one Type-C) power portable devices such as mobile phones and tablets, even during a utility power failure.

The LX1500GU3-FC comes with a three-year warranty (including coverage of batteries) and a $500,000 Connected Equipment Guarantee.

  • Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
  • Multi-function color LCD display panel
  • 10 x NEMA 5-15R (Battery Backup)
  • USB charge ports
  • Data line protection
  • ENERGY STAR® certified


  • Battery Backup
    Supplies power long enough for equipment to properly shut down when utility power fails. Helps prevent loss of data and minimizes the component stress caused by a hard shutdown.
  • Surge Protection
    Diverts excess voltage away from sensitive electronic equipment during an AC power surge or power spike to prevent damage.
  • Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
    Increases the AC power and maintains a safe voltage level without switching to battery mode and conserves battery life.
  • USB Charge Ports
    Rapidly charge and power USB devices whether the UPS is providing utility or battery backup power.
  • Multifunction Color LCD
    Displays immediate, detailed information on the UPS battery and power conditions. The color display quickly alerts users to potential problems before they can affect critical equipment and cause downtime.
  • Data Line Protection
    Prevents power surges that travel through coaxial and Ethernet lines from causing damage to electronics.
  • Widely Spaced Outlet
    Allows you to conveniently add transformer-sized plugs without blocking other outlets.
  • Line Interactive Topology
    Exists when a line interactive UPS has an autotransformer that regulates low voltages (e.g., brownouts) and over voltages (e.g., spikes) without having to switch to battery.
  • Simulated Sine Wave Output
    Provides a manufactured waveform output to supply cost-effective battery backup power for equipment that does not require sine wave output.
    This model is an ENERGY STAR® certified Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system. ENERGY STAR is the trusted, government-backed symbol for energy-efficient products and practices that help save money and protect the environment.
  • GreenPower UPS™ Bypass Design
    A patented design that allows utility power to bypass the UPS transformer, when AC power is stable, which reduces energy consumption, noise, and heat buildup.
  • Ultra Quiet Design
    Minimizes noise during operation for a quieter environment.
  • PowerPanel® Personal Software
    Provides a user-friendly dashboard interface for controlling and monitoring the UPS. Free software download available.
  • Three-Year Warranty
    CyberPower will repair or replace a defective UPS system (including batteries) within three years of the purchase date. See warranty for details.
  • Connected Equipment Guarantee
    CyberPower will repair or replace properly connected equipment if it is damaged by a power surge.

Automatic Voltage Regulation

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) in line interactive UPS systems stabilizes the incoming AC signal to maintain output power at a nominal 120 volts by controlling high and low voltages without resorting to battery power. This significantly increases battery life and lessens the likelihood of data loss, memory freezes, and system crashes.

How AVR Works in a Line Interactive UPS - A line interactive UPS includes an AVR autotransformer a special type of transformer designed to switch between powered coils of wire in response to variances in utility power input, thereby increasing or decreasing the magnetic field and the resulting output voltage to connected equipment.
This type of UPS tolerates undervoltage brownouts and overvoltage surges without consuming backup battery power by automatically selecting different power taps on the AVR autotransformer. During normal operation, incoming AC power bypasses the autotransformer (where voltage highs and lows are controlled) while also charging the battery. When the incoming voltage falls below the AVR range, the UPS switches to battery backup, and the DC-AC inverter circuitry is engaged. Power will continue to be supplied by the battery-inverter circuit until incoming voltage returns to the range manageable by the AVR.

GreenPower UPS Technology: Bypass Design

GreenPower UPS™ Technology from CyberPower improves operating efficiency, reduce heat generation, and consume less power than conventional UPS models. Our patented Bypass Design allows current to bypass the transformer and automatic voltage regulation (AVR) when utility power is normal, thus reducing energy consumption and associated costs. Because utility power functions normally most of the time, the bypass design allows for substantial energy savings. This technology also reduces heat generation, an important factor in decreasing operating costs.

Transformers and Transformer Outlets

A transformer converts alternating current line voltage to a higher value or a lower value. Transformers rely upon electromagnetic induction, the process which occurs when the alternating current within a circuit generates current in a nearby circuit.

Transformers vary in design and size, as well as using different amounts of current. Small transformers plug into a wall outlet and create low direct current voltages which are used by common electronic devices. Transformer outlets are more widely spaced than other outlets to accommodate transformer block adapters or other adapters that are large in size. Transformer outlets can be used to connect any appropriate device to a surge protector.
