With so many makes and models of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to choose from it can be difficult to know exactly which to select. We believe there are four core areas that you need to consider: the environment, power usage, technology type and functionality.
Consider: UPS positioning and its surroundings.
Examine: Temperature, ventilation constraints, weight restrictions and general environment.
Achieve: Optimised battery life, protect critical components, extend UPS lifespan and maximize performance.
Consider: The application the UPS will be used for and the level of power is needed.
Examine: The total power requirements needed today and the future.
Achieve: Greater TCO (total cost of ownership) values and added capacity to support any power surges and redundancy.
UPS TECHNOLOGY TYPES
Consider: Level of protection required – simple battery backup or full protection for critical environments and applications.
SINGLE PHASE UPS
Line interactive and online double conversion.
Ideal for non-critical environments.
THREE PHASE TRADITIONAL
Centralised/tower/static/solid state UPS
THREE PHASE MODULAR
Flexible and scalable
Operating costs reduced
Clean, reliable power supply
Consider: Efficiency, usability and flexibility
Examine: Monitoring, access and operational functionality
Achieve: Reduced energy consumption, remote monitoring management, front access for easy maintenance and leading edge technology.
