UPS Systems for Backup Power



Building a Cost-Effective Power Protection Strategy for your Data Center

UPS is an acronym for Uninterruptible Power Supply. A UPS is defined as a back-up power system used to ensure uninterrupted power for various electronic devices.  All but the most basic UPS systems also condition incoming power to level out sags and surges, helping to prevent damage to today's sensitive electronic gear.

A UPS has it's own rechargeable battery which provides emergency power for your system immediately when the main supply is cut, thereby preventing data loss. In the event of a sustained power failure, the UPS will provide sufficient battery power for your files to be saved and for the whole system to be shut down in an orderly manner. If an alternative power source such as a generator is available, the battery will provide sufficient power to keep your system running until the secondary supply is brought online.
