Uninterruptible Power Supplies
No matter what your organisation does, or where and when it operates, the one thing we can be sure of is that it needs power!
Regardless of whether your business trades on the stock market or makes ice cream, to maintain the availability of the infrastructure, it depends upon you need a reliable uninterruptible power supply.
There are many different UPS systems to choose from and selecting the right one can be tricky. Understanding the options available and the things you need to be aware of when deciding which is right for you can be a time consuming and baffling task.
Traditional or monobloc UPS systems have a fixed capacity which usually can not be changed if the load increases or the demand for power changes. As a result it is important to understand and predict your load and future load requirements from day one. The advantages of a traditional UPS system, are a lower price per VA than their modular counterparts, and maintenance costs can also be more competitive. If you’re load is unlikely to change traditional – monobloc uninterruptible power supplies offer a cost effective easy to maintain back up power solution.
A modular UPS provides scalable and redundant power protection for the most critical applications. Multiple hot-swap power and battery modules enable the capacity of the UPS and the battery run time to be scaled up as the demand for power increases. Being modular also eliminates the risk of a single point of failure and provides redundancy in the power, battery and intelligence of the UPS. The hot-swap design reduces the mean time to repair and provides the highest levels of uptime.
When we started planning a refresh of our UPS estate, we stumbled upon Source UPS. They are one of those companies you hope you will find. They are true experts in their field and made some great suggestions that have made managing our server rooms much easier.
