In our fast-moving modern world, the success of our business relies on efficient power with no disruptions. Unfortunately, power spikes, fluctuations or power outages are a given, and there is no way of knowing when they will hit. However, planning for the worst and investing in a backup plan with a UPS system will prevent your computers, medical equipment or security systems from shutting down due to power disruptions.
In this article, we will be defining what a UPS system is and covering what you need to know to get started with UPS installation and maintenance for efficient workflow all day, every day,
What is UPS, and Why Does it Matter?
A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), is a DC power system that provides vital battery backup power to your critical electronic equipment when unexpected power problems occur to your primary power source. When the success of your business relies on POS systems, computers or machinery, the last thing you want is a brownout, power fluctuation or power outage to bring productivity to a screeching halt.
A reliable UPS can protect your home and business from the following detrimental side effects:
- Loss of productivity and revenue
- Data loss
- Disruption to customer service
- Damage to reputation
- Critical machinery shutting down
- Unmet quotas
- Delayed production schedules
How Does UPS Work?
There are three main types of UPS systems, these include:
Line Interactive UPS system
A Line Interactive UPS system continually monitors incoming voltage from the primary power source to your connected electrical equipment. When your UPS detects a minor power fluctuation, it will correct it immediately, protecting your home office computer or critical hospital equipment from expensive damage.
Online UPS system
An Online UPS system continuously draws power from one of the most crucial UPS parts, the battery, giving your electronic equipment the highest level of protection whilst you’re using it.
Offline UPS system
Unlike an Online UPS system, an Offline UPS system doesn’t use the battery until the voltage powering your critical equipment falls below a certain level. When your primary power source becomes completely unreliable, your offline UPS system will start providing backup power.
