What is Uninterruptible Power?

Every business should have a plan in place to protect its operations from power outages, spikes, and surges – installing an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) System can help prevent costly downtime, lost data or damaged equipment in the event of a power failure.

Uninterruptible power supplies provide an alternate source of energy when electrical systems fail or experience interruptions. It is designed to protect against sudden changes in voltage, called spikes and surges, which can damage computers and other electronic equipment. The most common type of UPS systems are battery backup units, which allow you to continue working during brief outages without interruption. For longer outages, you may want to consider pairing your UPS System with a generator.
