What are the Types of UPS Systems?

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems provide critical backup power to keep your business running during a power outage, brownout or any other situation that may cause an interruption in power supply and impact the operation of your critical systems. The size and design of a UPS System determines how long it will supply power.

What are the types of UPS Systems?

  1. Standby UPS System – A standby UPS System switches to battery backup power when it detects a problem with the power supply such as a mains failure or voltage surge. When incoming power from the mains supply drops below or surges above safe voltage levels, the UPS System switches to DC battery power and then inverts it to AC power to run connected equipment.
  2. Line Interactive UPS System – Line interactive UPS systems provide power protection from both surges and outages, as well as filtering out power fluctuations. Line interactive UPS systems are typically used in applications where power quality is a critical concern, such as servers, networking equipment, and medical equipment.
  3. Online Double Conversion – An online double-conversion UPS System provides consistent and clean power regardless of the condition of incoming power. Double Conversion UPS Systems provide a stable source of power as they operate on isolated DC power 100 percent of the time and have zero switch-over time.
