The UPS topology

Why does only online UPS topology provides mission critical load protection? Modern, static UPS systems are broadly classified into three design architectures: on-line, off-line and line interactive. This post describes and compares the three types and explains why – for truly critical loads – online ups topology is the only acceptable approach. Facility executives today […]

Uninterruptible Power Supply ups

How to select Your industrial uninterruptible power supply UPS? Many building construction projects begin with dignitaries shoveling a ceremonial first blade of dirt and end with those same individuals cutting a giant ribbon. But for the design engineers, builders and facility managers involved in the project, it’s the work that takes place between those two […]

lead acid battery

The lead acid battery was invented in 1859 by French physicist Gaston Planté and is the earliest type of rechargeable battery. Despite having a very low energy-to-weight ratio and a low energy-to-volume ratio, its ability to supply high surge currents means that the cells have a relatively large power-to-weight ratio. These features, along with their […]

Online UPS

Uninterruptible power source (UPS) is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. Online UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries, supercapacitors, […]

What is an Offline UPS?

December 3, 2019 Blog

Standby or Offline UPS is one of the three main types of the static UPS. It is the simplest and least expensive uninterruptible power supply system. Actually, some don’t even consider it as a UPS, because of the presence of a momentary break during transfer or switching. Due to that, an offline UPS is sometimes […]

Why Do I Need a UPS?

November 26, 2019 Blog

There are a number of reasons you may want to invest in a UPS system but generally it is to protect your critical systems from the effects of power failures, voltage dips and power anomalies. Common power problems The primary role of any uninterruptible power supply is to provide short-term power when the input power […]

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

What is a UPS device? During power surges and failures, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) devices keep computer systems and IT equipment safe and operational. An UPS provides battery backup power when the flow of electricity drops to an inadequate voltage, or if it stops. An uninterrupted power source is vital for the mission-critical environment. Depending […]

uninterruptible power supply

What your computer expects to get from the power grid is 120/127/208/220/230/240-volt AC power oscillating at 50/60 Hertz. A computer can tolerate slight differences from this specification, but a significant deviation will cause the computer’s power supply to fail. An uninterruptible power supply generally protects a computer against four different power problems: 1- Voltage surges […]
