Inverters and Uninterruptible Power Supply

When downtime costs you time and profits you simply cannot afford to LOSE. We have a solution.


What is a UPS?

An Uninterruptible Power Supply uses special inverter technology and power supplies that sits between the main power supply (e.g. a wall outlet or DB board) and a device (e.g. a computer) to prevent undesired features of the power source (outages, sags, surges, bad harmonics, etc.) from the supply from adversely affecting the performance of the device.

How does an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) work and what it protects against.

Power Surges

A sudden increase in power flowing through to your device is typically caused by something like a lightning strike. This leads to a sudden increase in power followed by a drop which causes damage to equipment.

Overvoltage

Overvoltage is when the power being supplied is greater than the power required and can cause overheating and damage. Unlike with a power surge, this power is over a sustained period and causes different problems.

Undervoltage

Also known as a brown-out, Undervoltage is what occurs when the power supplied is less than is required. This could be from a sudden demand for power in other areas or a problem with the grid, the lack of flow leads to damage and active data loss.

Power Outage

A complete disruption of power, either short or long term. There can be a number of reasons that you might be subject to a power outage but the results can be severe with data loss and system downtime being the major contributors.

By providing a constant flow of power, a UPS allows you to handle these problems as they arise. UPS systems moderate the flow of power and jump in with charged batteries in the event of total disruption.
