UPS for ML350e Gen8 (PFC Power supply?)

Hi,

 

I am looking for a suitable low power (<=500w) UPS for a HP ML350e Gen 8 server. I've seen a few offerings from APC that could be suitable however one thing it stopping me from committing. 

 

Does the power supply in the ML350e g8 require a pure sine wave UPS/does the server have a PFC power supply? 

 

I've tried finding the specs on the non hot 460w power supply but cannot seem to find anything which confirms whether or not the power supply is in fact PFC active.

 

Does anyone have any experience with this?

 

Many Thanks, Aaron

i have the cheapest DL360e and it has these fancy "blue cord" power supplies.

I feared the same!!

It was all right with my old SUA2200XL and SMT2200XL (one per power suppy!)

this is the opposite of some DC7900 SFF desktops!!
