What is a UPS?
UPS stands for uninterruptible power supply or uninterruptible power system. It is electrical equipment that provides emergency power to something when the power source or mains power fails or is not available. For example, a device that allows a laptop or computer to keep running even though the charging cable has been taken out or lost. Also, a UPS protects from power surges. Power surges occur when a flow of electricity is interrupted, then started again. Or it can occur when something sends electricity back into the system. So a UPS installation prevents this from happening and protects your equipment and devices.
Why install a UPS?
If you own a busy company and there is a short term power outage, a UPS installation can keep everything running smoothly. Even though it will not last indefinitely, a UPS provides you with time to find a solution or convert to an alternative power source. Nowadays everyone relies on electricity being a constant, so it is vital to have a plan in place if something goes wrong.
Power surges and dips can cause irregularities which can both affect the apparatus being used and any data that is stored. So it is worthwhile to have a UPS installation carried out, to ensure a consistent and uninterrupted power supply so those effects do not take place.
Who uses a UPS?
Definitely common in the workplace, a UPS installation is typically used to protect hardware. For example, equipment such as computers, data centres etc. There are many different UPS units to choose from depending on the purpose. There are many industries that use a UPS. This type of power back up is essential for places like hospitals and medical centres. With other places like universities and banks benefiting from a UPS installation.
