These models are used with both automatic data processing machines and telephone equipment. Based upon GRI 6 and GRI 3(c), these models are classified in the subheading which occurs last in numerical order.

The applicable subheading for the uninterruptible power supply systems will be 8504.40.8500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Static converters:[f]or telecommunication apparatus.” The rate of duty will be free.
