UPS Systems – What to Know

You are ready to get a new UPS system to help protect your business. Great! But where do you start? Well, our team is here to walk you through every step of the process. We know that many businesses do not have the technical staff needed to manage the UPS system. We are here to make sure you have the protection you need and to answer any questions you may have.

Here are a few topics/talking points that we will need to figure out in order to determine which Uninterruptible Power Supply system is right for you.


Input/Output voltage

It helps if we know the incoming voltage your equipment is receiving and the amount it will need to deliver safely to your equipment.

Hard Wired in or line corded/Hard Wired out or receptacles  

This refers to how the equipment is attached to the power supply, think plug or wired more securely.  

Run time needed

We will want to figure out how long it will take for your emergency backup power to kick in or for you to safely power down your equipment without losing data in the event of a power outage.

Domestic or International applications

Knowing which country the UPS system is going to be used helps us to narrow down the options available to you.

Specialty configurations for medical uses

Will the UPS system be used for medical uses; if so, there may be specialty configurations needed.


Don’t worry if you don’t know the answers to these questions, we will help you figure this out. For people replacing a UPS system or in-the-know, you may already have the specs lined out; if not, our techs will walk you through figuring out the answer. Once we have this nailed down, we can determine which UPS system you will need.
