Tripp Lite's Online UPS Systems Certified for Crestron Electronics, Inc's Integrated Partner Program

Home theater resellers and installers can now seamlessly integrate Tripp Lite's online double-conversion UPS systems into their customers' Crestron installations and offer comprehensive management capabilities direct to any touchpad.

Chicago, IL (July 5, 2005) -Tripp Lite, a world -leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, is proud to announce that its complete line of Online UPS Systems (from 1kVA to 10kVA) has been certified for Crestron Electronics, Inc.'s Integrated Partner Program. Home theater resellers and installers can now seamlessly integrate Tripp Lite's world -class, on -line double -conversion UPS systems into their customers' Crestron installations and offer comprehensive management capabilities direct to any touchpad. "Power conditioning products are an extremely important part of any integrated system," said Chris Wildfoerster, Director, Market Development for Crestron Electronics. "We have seen a huge increase in demand from our dealers to control and monitor devices designed to insulate their clients' investments from electrical anomalies."

"Tripp Lite Online UPS Systems provide the highest quality power (as well as reliable battery backup and surge protection) for high -end audio and video equipment," said Joe Valha, Tripp Lite Executive Vice President of Strategic Accounts. "Most 'power conditioning' systems today just can't offer the superior power and protection of a true on -line UPS. Tripp Lite True On -Line UPS Systems simply deliver a better home theater experience: removing harmonic distortion, fast electrical impulses and frequency fluctuations while providing pure sine wave output with zero transfer time to battery in the event of blackouts, while providing IP -addressable control. We are proud to be a partner with Crestron, the industry leader in home theater and systems integration."

Crestron resellers and installers benefit from Tripp Lite's Integrated Partner certification because they can now access complete module descriptions of Tripp Lite Online UPS Systems, including help files describing the module and its functionality as well as sample programs and a touchpad layout. Crestron systems users benefit from Tripp Lite's certification because they can now have complete control and monitoring capabilities over the power coming into their systems.
