An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) maintains a continuous supply of electricity to connected equipment by supplying power from a separate source when there is a power outage.
Power outages can cause real problems for businesses. Even minor power fluctuations can cause computers to freeze or shut down, resulting in lost time and data. As most businesses store information on a computer or file server it is advisable that there is a system in place to prevent data loss. A UPS system can offer peace of mind.
There are two different types of UPS device: off-line UPS and on-line UPS.
An Off-line UPS remains idle until a power failure occurs, and then switches from utility power to its own power using a Central Battery System in which the batteries and charger are housed in one location together with monitoring of the mains supply and, if required, sub-circuits. Can supply total or part loads as required.
On-line UPS continuously powers the protected load from its batteries, while simultaneously replenishing the reserves from the AC power using a static inverter which runs conventional mains lighting at full brightness during both normal conditions and power outage situations. Does not require installation of special fittings.
As UPS systems range in size and voltage, Technical Alarm Systems will be happy to advise you on the best system for your company.
