Learn More About UPS Systems and the impact of quality of power supply problems

Disturbances to the electrical power supply, such as loss of electrical power (black out) a reduction in the mains voltage (brown out) or electrical 'noise' (surges, spikes or transients) can affect the performance and lifespan of electronic devices, so it is important that the electricity supply is stable and clean.



  • Power problems can cause:
  • Equipment lock-up,
  •  program and system crashes
  • Data corruption
  • Data processing errors
  • Data transmission errors
  • Printing errors, hardware damage


Electrical noise except in its worst cases is typically an ‘unseen’ event but results in the largest threat to the operating capabilities of electronic equipment and contributes to the premature ageing of electronic components.


Power problems can be traced to one or more sources:
Your own network, your electricity supply or the building itself
Other equipment in the building
The weather e.g. lightning









Get Back Up and running – business continuity

Business continuity is the objective and to meet this, Tech-E Solutions UPS systems come with a wealth of features and capabilities that create a communications interface between the UPS system and the load, whilst allowing the user to monitor the UPS and battery performance. User friendly software means that you can customize your UPS system to meet specific requirements, including setting up automatic load shutdown procedures. Built-in advanced battery care will optimize UPS battery performance and maximize operating life.


For those who are not already aware, a UPS System is an “Uninterruptable Power Supply”. This basically means that should the power fail, be cut off or you are experiencing an inconvenient load shedding, your computer and equipment will be supplied with enough power to enable you to perform the proper shut down processes.

Having a UPS system in place ensures that you will not lose important data and cause damage to your equipment.











You'll find two main types of UPS systems available if you are looking for one.
  • Standby Power Systems, which monitor the power line and at the first sign of a problem switch over to battery power. Common problem with this is that there are several milliseconds where your computer will not be receiving power.
  • The Online Power System is different in that it supplies your computer and equipment with continuous power – Making this unit the logical way to go. Unfortunately the online UPS is generally more expensive than the Standby Power UPS.
When choosing a UPS System always keep your specific requirements in mind.
  • What is it that you want your UPS system to do for you? You will need to obtain a UPS System that can carry the power load that you require.
  • Check your equipment to see how much it draws. Try cater for future expansion in case you get more equipment. It would be most unfortunate to invest in a UPS System only to have to replace it in a few months time.
  • Depending on your requirements, you can choose a UPS system that will allow you five minutes back up time – giving you enough time to perform correct shut down procedures, or you can have a UPS System that will keep your equipment up and running for several hours until the power returns. Obviously the longer back up time require, the more costly your UPS system will be.

    In any event, if you are not an expert and unsure of what your power needs actually are – feel free to contact us and we will assist you as best we can.
