UPS Systems: Does Your Business Need Uninterruptible Power?

An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system supplies a steady supply of emergency power to systems to safely power them down, or switch to a stable supply of power when there is a disruption to the mains power.

Does your business need a UPS system?

A UPS system should form part of your business continuity plan as it ensures that your business can continue to run when the power is down. Relying on mains power alone puts your business at risk of losing access to critical equipment, systems, and income.

Not having a UPS System in place can affect your business activities including:

  • Sales
  • Productivity
  • Damage to stock and/or loss of perishables
  • Damage to critical equipment
  • Data loss and corruption
  • Decreased employee productivity

A UPS system can help protect:

  • Comms rooms
  • Data centres
  • Server rooms
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical devices and facilities
  • Transport infrastructure and more

UPS Systems:

  • Provide continuous power – UPS systems provide a continuous supply of power in the event of a mains failure. It also maintains power between mains failure and generator start up. So as the battery kicks in, all your business devices that are attached will remain up and running. You will avoid any kind of data loss while working.
  • Provide surge protection – UPS systems monitor the incoming voltage and identifies spikes and surges with outages. When it detects a problem, the UPS system switches to AC power to prevent the spike from reaching the devices connected to it. When the spike is gone, the UPS reconnects the output to the mains power.
  • Are a predictable expense – Power outages can affect business activities across a variety of channels. Investing in a UPS system can minimise these impacts and provides a predictable expense that you are able to budget for.
