What is a UPS System?
UPS is key to running a business, and we aren’t talking about the United Parcel Service! A UPS or Uninterruptable Power Supply is a device meant to allow you no downtime in the event of a power outage. This device provides emergency power when the input source or main power fails.
Is it a generator?
UPS systems differ from emergency power supplies and standby generators in that they provide near-immediate protection from input power interruptions by supplying energy that is stored in batteries. The runtime for most UPS systems is no more than a few minutes, but it is sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down equipment to prevent losing any data or having to waste valuable time with upstart procedures.
Protect what’s valuable!
The uninterruptible power supply system 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.
Uninterrupted power supply systems come in a variety of sizes depending on the load you are needing to protect. There are UPS systems fit for your home office and ones so big they provide backup for entire towns. One thing they have in common, they are an integral part of providing protection for your work.
