An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a type of device that powers equipment, nearly instantaneously, in the event of grid power failure, protecting the equipment from damage. UPS systems vary significantly in their design and functionality, affecting the amount of time they can power equipment, their ability to improve power quality, and their cost
Data servers, computer systems, industrial settings, and laboratories commonly use UPS systems. Because a UPS protects equipment, it is appropriate for any situation where electrical loads may be sensitive to power loss or other power quality issues. For example, UPS systems are commonly used for computers and servers because power loss to these loads may result in loss of data or component damage.
Our range of UPS systems have been manufactured to provide a flexible, reliable and effective solution to ensure your business remains fully protected at all times.
An Uninterruptible Power Supply system is an essential piece of hardware that:
- Provides backup power when utility power fails, either long enough to enable a controlled shutdown of critical equipment, bridge the gap between mains failure and an emergency standby generator starting, or provide an element of business continuity through additional battery packs / cabinets.
- Conditions incoming utility mains supplies against common forms of power disturbances and fluctuations, removing risk of damage to sensitive electronic equipment.
Uninterruptible Power Supply systems provide several different benefits such as:
- Removing the risk of power outage to critical services enabling business continuity and/or the ability to perform controlled shutdown of essential loads.
- Protection against habitual power disturbances such as brownouts, power spikes, voltage dips and fluctuations.
- Improvement to business competence through protection against costly downtime to essential services.
- Protection against loss of crucial data increasing business productivity.
- Bridging the gap between a utility mains failure and a standby emergency generator set starting and transferring.
