Why do you need UPS?

Published by Jason Koffler on 27 September 2017

What is UPS?

A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) is a system that provides emergency power when the input power source or mains power fails. This differs from an emergency power system or standby generator as our devices provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions. Although the battery runtime of some uninterruptible power sources are varied and can be relatively short upto several hours, this normally gives organisations sufficient time to start a standby power source or properly shut down equipment.

Who uses UPS?

cWe work with many different companies and industries to provide uninterruptible power supplies. Whether they are sports stadiums, hospitals, factories, offices or even reservoir pumping stations, most businesses are in possession of vital hardware or software that will be seriously affected by loss of power, even if they do not provide 24 hour services to customers.

Computers, data centres and telecommunications equipment need to be protected by UPS. An unexpected power disruption could cause data loss, serious business disruptions or even injuries and fatalities.

What if I already have a back up power supply in place?

Even if you already have a UPS, leaving the system too long without maintenance or upgrades can seriously affect its capability to deal with interruptions in power supply. We offer maintenance contracts to enable better working systems, as a regular maintenance service ensures that the longer life of the system, as well as welcome peace of mind for the customer.
