NEW BEST POWER TECHNOLOGY CHECKUPS(R) FOR MACINTOSH(R) SOFTWARE WORKS WITH ITS BACKUP POWER HARDWARE, SO MACS AREN'T POWERLESS OR SPEECHLESS

 NECEDAH, Wis., June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Best Power Technology, Inc. (Necedah, Wis.) introduces a new Macintosh(R) software utility that works with its backup power systems to help manage and respond to AC power problems or interruptions. It automatically handles safe shut- downs during extended outages, and even announces aloud what it is doing. New CheckUPS(R) for Macintosh is available for $109 (all prices suggested U.S. resale at participating resellers).
 CheckUPS for Mac monitors a Best FERRUPS(R), Fortress(R) or Patriot(R) power system through a Macintosh serial (modem, printer or auxiliary) port. When power fails, the Mac displays an on-screen message and a recorded female voice says, "AC power has failed; your Macintosh is now on battery backup." Similar messages announce the start-up and shutdown of the CheckUPS application, the return of failed power, or the beginning of a system shutdown procedure. CheckUPS also maintains a log which indicates when the system operated on inverter and when it was shut down. A Broadcast Receiver application (included) alerts connected Macs to power outages or an impending shutdown on protected Macintosh file servers.
 CheckUPS for Macintosh requires 2 MB memory plus System 7.0 or later, or system 6.0.3 with MultiFinder. It includes all necessary cables.
 Best Power Technology, Inc., is a long-standing leader in power protection systems and equipment, and operates the National Power Laboratory.
