Why use a UPS?

Electronic and computer-based equipment in industry and the service sector needs a high quality uninterrupted power supply.

Electronic and computer-based equipment in industry and the service sector needs a high quality uninterrupted power supply.

The electrical distribution systems are subject to interference arising from atmospheric and industrial sources. The voltage supplied by electrical power providers is intended to supply a stable 230 volts.

In fact, no electrical installation is free of brown-outs, interference and variations in voltage. Many phenomena cause excess voltages (above 260 volts) or voltage drops (below 180 volts), and jeopardizes the operation of computer systems

SUPs (Stable Uninterruptible Power Supplies) also known as inverters or UPSs (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) are an ideal way of providing vital protection for the operation of computer installations.

Whatever its power level, a UPS is the only way of ensuring a high quality electrical supply.

Moreover, with the use of powerful communications programs, today's UPSs are now able to collect and report on information relevant to the management of UPSs (such as battery charging, remaining operating life, load levels, etc.) and in relation to their environment (raised temperature, f1res, etc.).

Similarly, it can shut down files by automatic remote control, if there is a mains failure.

The larger computer manufacturers now recommend the use of UPSs, and normally provide them as an integral part of their product range.

Main applications : - In the banking, administrative and data processing sectors: 70 %
- Telecommunications, medical environments, all kinds of industry: 25 %
- Some niche markets such as architectural offices, doctors' surgeries, etc.: 5 %
