    Is it possible to plug 10-15 NUC using power extension cables (10-20m) and terminals  to a single UPS?

    Since NUCs draw very low watt (6-10) it would not need high capacity PSU.

    Would there be any consequences?

    Using a single UPS to each device is not very cost effective in the long run, especially when we have to replace the batteries. Ugh

    Hi Deny,


    I am unsure what is meant by an NUC? This is an acronym I am unaware of.

    A UPS is normally happy to supply multiple devices, as long as the total load does not exceed the specified output of the UPS. The UPS is predominantly designed to supply an IT load.

    You need to observe local electrical installation guidelines to ensure the installation is safe.

    If you navigate to apc.com

    Support > Resources & tools > Tools & Selectors

    Here you can find a tool to size your UPS.


    Kindest Regards,

    NUC = next unit computing, the model i'm after only consumes 10 watt each.

    But nevermind, looks like it's not coming to my country after all :(
