A UPS - or uninterruptible power supply - is a piece of electrical equipment that provides essential emergency backup power to a building or other load source when the incoming power supply or mains power fails. Every city in the world is susceptible to power outage, and many businesses and organisations have an imperative reliance on their electricity supply to ensure their critical equipment and technologies remain in constant 24 hour operation. Hospitals, banks, computer server centres, data holding facilities, military operations and defense head quarters are just a few examples of customers who cannot afford for their electricity supply to be compromised.

Cover While Your Generator Engages

The sometimes little known fact that a stand-by generator can take up to three minutes to engage, synchronise frequency and switch to primary power source can have severe consequences! This is where the UPS comes into service. Its primary purpose is to provide full incoming power to the building or load source in less than 1/10th of a second and remain in use until the stand-by emergency generator takes lead as the primary power supply. The UPS is in essence a battery or bank of batteries - also known as super-capacitors - with incredibly high capacities that can sustain a supply of power long enough for critical equipment to either safely shut down or switch to an auxiliary resource until the generator is in full operation.

A UPS can prove vital in protecting electrical equipment where there is an unexpected power outage that could lead to serious business disruption, the loss of important data or even cause injury. These units range in size from small banks designed to protect a single computer, to large units powering an entire data center or building.
