In this modern age of IOT, Ai, electronics and let’s not forget “the new normal”. Irregular power supply, power surges can create havoc to say the least!
Intellectual property and communication is so valuable and crucial that it’s worth investing in protection systems for it, so why not protect the equipment that makes it all work.
Large corporations invest vast amounts of capital on backup power systems to protect their investment in equipment and IP and we feel that SME’s & private people need to buy into this. After all if you “fail to plan, you plan to fail”.
So what are we talking about? Well in this article we are talking about Uninterruptible power supply or UPS.
An uninterruptible power supply or uninterruptible power source (UPS) is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries.The on-battery run-time of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment. It is a type of continual power system.
A UPS is typically used to protect hardware such as computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor to large units powering entire data centers or buildings.
- Voltage spike or power surge or sustained overvoltage
- Momentary or sustained reduction in input voltage
- Voltage sag
- Noise, defined as a high frequency transient or oscillation, usually injected into the line by nearby equipment
- Instability of the mains frequency
- Harmonic distortion, defined as a departure from the ideal sinusoidal waveform expected on the line
- Prevented uncertain Data Loss (Desktops Computers etc.)
- Uptime of Servers
- Uptime of Wi -Fi routers, Data Switches, Fiber Network Interface Unit (NIU)
- Emergency Power supply (Critical equipment, lights etc.)
- Protect Voltage Sensitive Device from “Bad Electricity”
- Provides Surge Protection to a certain degree
- Continuous Work output
As you can see, UPS is a major need in both household and commercial organizations. It is one of the best forms of temporary power.
We highly recommend UPS that are of high quality from reputable suppliers that can provide back up, service & parts availability.
