uninterruptible power supply ups critical power solutions

UPS and generator can deliver innovative critical power solutions to provide businesses with uninterruptible power and backup power supplies.  A UPS can support its critical load during utility power anomalies and blackouts – but only until its battery autonomy expires. Conversely, an adequately-fuelled generator can support the load indefinitely, but needs time to start up and […]

ups energy efficiency

A modern on-line UPS system has many advantages especially when it comes to UPS energy efficiency. It provides protection against all types of power supply failure, filters a vast range of disturbances found in the mains supply. As such, provides more sensitive loads with a clean backup power supply. With extra storage capacity, it can […]

ups technical glossary

This ups technical glossary is designed to help you to understand the technical terms used within the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) industry. A – ups technical glossary AC ripple Is the residual periodic variation of the DC voltage within a UPS which has been derived from an unwelcome alternating (AC) source. An AC ripple causes internal […]

lithium-ion batteries in data centre ups systems

With the market shifting and demand for greater lifespan, efficiency and reduced footprint becoming more prevalent, battery manufacturers have upped their game with lithium-ion batteries solutions. The data centre sector in particular is welcoming lithium-ion batteries solutions with open arms. When paired with an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) a far more efficient energy storage system […]

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 […]
