How much capacity UPS should I use for AltaLink C8035

Product Name: Xerox AltaLink C8035
Operating System: Not Applicable

I am confused about how much power (watt) does AltaLink C8035 needs to operate. In the datasheet, it says it consumes about 700 watts while in operation. But technician from our local Xerox partner says it can consume up to 2000 to 2600 watts when starting and suggested us to get a UPS of 3KVA. However, our electrician contradicts that this machine should not use that much power.

I am now confused about what capacity UPS to buy. I don't want to buy way more powerful UPS than I need.

Any suggestion is much appreciated.

Have a nice day.

Thank you.

I'd take the technicians word over an electricians unless the electrician backed it up with data, which any electrician should be able to do very quickly. You can do it yourself pretty cheap.

But these printers are like toasters, they take a lot of juice to start up.

A 1000W would certainly keep one running, but it might get cooked on a cold start

Thank you for the reply Joe. 

In your opinion is APC Smart-UPS 2200 good enough to handle the load of Xerox AltaLink C8035?

Thank you for your response.

The back of the machine there is a plate showing power consumption. I believe its up to 12 amps at 120 V.

I would invest in a line conditioner over a ups and save a couple of thousand dollars. Unless you have ground faults on the circuit, then still use the line conditioner and have the electrician fix the GF
