    CHICAGO, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Lite, a world leader in the
 manufacture of power protection equipment, announces it has included an
 updated custom installation feature on its newly released version 10.1
 PowerAlert Software.
     PowerAlert Software's new customizable installation will allow IS managers
 and other users to create repeatable installation configurations for their
 enterprise-wide UPS systems running Windows NT.  Rather than install and
 configure 100 units to the same specifications, a PowerAlert version 10.1 user
 will have the ability to create a custom installation that will auto-configure
 all the delay times, COM ports and actions of their UPS systems.
     PowerAlert version 10.1 will build on previous versions' success as the
 leading universal network UPS management software.  PowerAlert Software
 provides universal application shutdown, actively saving data files first
 before shutting down the operating system.  Most other manufacturers' UPS
 software only shuts down the operating system, resulting in lost data and
 consequently time and money.  PowerAlert Software controls virtually all
 legacy systems from any manufacturer, upgrading their usability and
 performance.  In addition, PowerAlert software provides outstanding monitoring
 of network power conditions allowing users to proactively address power
 concerns.  PowerAlert is fully Year 2000 Compliant.
     Tripp Lite has built a reputation as a world leader in power protection
 solutions by providing enhanced service and innovative products for more than
 75 years.  Tripp Lite is headquartered in Chicago, Ill., and maintains a
 global presence with fully staffed offices worldwide.
     Tripp Lite manufactures more than 300 different power products, including
 SmartPro(R), DataCenter(TM), Unison(R), Internet Office(TM), OmniSmart(TM), BC
 Personal(R) and BC Pro(R) UPS lines; PowerAlert(R) Advanced Network Monitoring
 Software; Isobar(R) Premium Surge Suppressors; Network Dataline Protectors;
 SmartRack Rack Enclosures and Line Conditioners.
