Simply put, what are uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)?
In layman’s terms, uninterruptible power supplies offer backup power for a certain amount of time when your primary power source fails or the voltage drops below the required level. UPS are critical in some industries, as it allows you to safely shutdown connected equipment and systems. Not only this, but it provides valuable time so that important equipment such as life support machines can remain operational.
What size of UPS should I be looking at?
There are a number of uninterruptible power supplies on the market, which range in size and all boast unique features. With this in mind, it is not always clear what size you need in relation to your requirements. As a general rule, uninterruptible power supplies should have an output watt capacity 20-25% higher than the total power drawn by any attached equipment. This quick calculation will help you find a UPS that aligns with your requirements.
How do you use uninterruptible power supplies?
Although they may look intimidating, uninterruptible power supplies tend to be extremely user friendly. Most uninterruptible power supplies have a range of ports at the back of the unit that are compatible with a range of equipment and systems. Simply connect your electrical equipment to your UPS, ensure your UPS is plugged in and turned on and you are good to go.
On average, what is the lifespan of uninterruptible power supplies?
The lifespan of your UPS will be dependent on a few factors. When determining the general lifespan of uninterruptible power supplies, you need to consider the working environment, how well it has been maintained and the size of the unit. Large floor standing UPS, for example, have an estimated lifespan of 10-15 years. A small low voltage UPS, on the other hand, may only last for 5 years. In addition to this, individual UPS components may fail earlier. Features like fans and batteries may need to be replaced more frequently.
