The AV550SC Backup Power Block provides the highest level of protection for structured cabling installations (ie. telephone, Internet and coax connections). With reliable battery backup, surge protection and EMI/RFI line noise filtering, the AV550SC provides a complete protection solution for audio/video distribution systems by supporting modems, routers, RF amplifiers, network interfaces, cameras, modulators and other equipment through all power problems. In the event of a power failure, the AV550SC includes an auto-restart feature that eliminates the need to perform an on-site restart. In addition, when a modem or router freeze-up occurs, the AV550SC features a recycle/reset button with sequential outlet startup for proper modem and router rebooting.
Tripp Lite 550VA UPS A/V Backup Power Block for Structured Wiring Closets is rated4.00 out of5 by5.
Rated 5 out of 5 byMacs R We from King of the nicheThere simply aren't many units designed to fit inside a structured wiring cabinet. This is my pick of the tiny set of contenders. It was designed wisely, with all extrusions and connections limited to its top and one edge surface. It's also light enough to be portable and used temporarily outdoors (it's not weatherproof). I knocked off one star because the internal battery is supposedly not customer-replaceable (we'll be attempting that challenge when the time comes).

Rated 5 out of 5 byWill of Texas from Great product that could be improvedThis product fills a niche, I haven't found any other UPS that would fit in the structured wiring cabinet as well as this one. And is does it's job very well too. The problem I have with it is that when the battery goes bad, it shuts down even if line power is available. This makes no sense as the primary purpose is to keep power up.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTerry from Working Good.Using the 550VA ups on our IP phones and switches to keep the systems running when the grid power fails, I have installed four of these ups's without any problems yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 byCapsan5 from Unique product works perfectlyThe Tripp Lite AV550SC fills a niche that most UPSs can't. This product supplies uninterrupted power flow to devices normally found together in home networks, as well as properly managing power-up. Its delayed power-on for the router minimizes logon confusion, and the 12VDC supply to keep such devices going makes a hard-to-find combination. It's also smart enough to communicate with your computer to arrange for smooth shut-downs in long outages. The ability to be wall-mounted helps manage equipment clutter. An excellent choice!

Rated 5 out of 5 byGary from Works well in On-QGood packaging, sufficient power connection for small network (modem, router, switch) and surge suppression for cable. Battery is documented as NON user replaceable. The product is very expensive for what it does but there are few other options.

Rated 5 out of 5 byThe control system engineer from Works great, wish it had more VAThis is a great product. It fits well inside the small spec home wiring cabinets (spec homes are not built with UPS systems). I also use one behind a wall mounted flat screen TV. I would love to buy a product that had more VA and was slightly larger footprint or the same footprint. These systems back up my TV (one 550) and my router/modem (one 550). Longer life would be better. My 55" flat screen (don't have specs in front of me) last about 40 min, and my router/modem lasts about 55 min on power outages.

Rated 5 out of 5 byRandyL999 from When they work they're great!Had to replace a four year old model when the battery failed. Bought the same unit, and it was defective. Tripp Lite replaced it immediately. Second unit was also defective, and again Tripp Lite replaced the unit. Third unit working like a charm. Very solid construction and hopefully this one keeps working!

Rated 5 out of 5 bykasabe from A must have for structured wiring enclosuresBy far the most important component of any residential structured wiring enclosure should be the AV550SC. Compact and designed for perfect fit in most structured wiring enclosures. This beauty allows all components like modems, routers, switches and distribution hubs to get surge protected, filtered, an uninterruptible power. If the power goes out its good to know these systems will still be able to function. Works best in enclosures where the power outlet of the enclosure is to the far right side. Avoid enclosures with the power outlets in the middle at the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 byChris from Worked well for just 1 yearWorked very well for about 1 year, then it stopped working as a backup battery. Power flows through just fine when plugged in, but as soon as the power is out all output is gone.
