Yes, you can monitor many APC UPS devices with PRTG:

In PRTG's web interface, create a device with the host name (IP/DNS) of your UPS device. On this PRTG device, create an SNMP Library sensor, and then select Apc ups.oidlib from the library list. PRTG will then query your device via SNMP in order to add sensors.
