Default ups question

does a ups cause emi frequency since it doesn't have what tripplite calls "isobanks?" Isobanks are said to reduce interference from outlet to outlet and I don't ever see any ups's specs saying it has isobanks/isobars.

No, the last UPS driver I saw had on a lead vest, no EMI emissions at all. To be totaly safe a tin foil hat will give keep you 100% safe.

It's probably just a marketing gimmic. I bet that triplite surge protector doesn't cover nearly as much equipment as a UPS does. My APC covers a couple hundred thousand if for some reason the devices connected to it get zapped.
