UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SYSTEMS
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
- 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
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
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
- 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
When choosing a UPS System always keep your specific requirements in mind.
