M32 power protection

Does the m32 (and or M32R) have any kind of protection against generators that are producing too much or too little voltage?

​No, I use a UPS with AVR (automatic voltage regulation) to protect my equipment. And it did happen a couple of years ago where the promoters provided a (crappy) generator for our July 1 Canada Day celebration. I had just purchased a rack mounted Cyberpower UPS (with AVR) and it definitely protected all of my gear, but sacrificed itself in doing so. The next time I went to use it, all it gave was a screech and wouldn't provide power.
