In general, a UPS protects IT equipment and other electrical loads from problems that plague our electrical supply.
UPS stands for uninterruptible power supply. And with a complete system, you can remove “power outage” from your list of worries. The technology continues to improve as the importance of maintaining power to essential systems and operations becomes more and more critical.
Many people don’t realize how much the data-driven world has changed overall power needs, as the Internet and big data in general keep driving up demand for cleaner and more reliable power supply. Energy surges, spikes or dips cause fluctuations and irregularities that can adversely affect your equipment and your data, so the systems provide a clean, consistent and uninterrupted power flow that protects against those effects.
Many refer to the concept of backup power as a “backup plan,” and a UPS(uninterruptible power supply) plays a big part of it. A UPS system might be a single phase or three phase configuration and could be powered by battery.
A UPS performs the following three basic functions:
1. It prevents hardware damage typically caused by surges and spikes. Many UPS models continually condition incoming power as well.
2. It prevents data loss and corruption. Without a UPS, data stored on devices that are subjected to a hard system shutdown may become corrupted or even lost completely. In conjunction with power management software, a UPS can facilitate a graceful system shutdown.
3. It provides availability for networks and other applications while preventing downtime. UPS can also be paired with generators in order to give the generators sufficient time to power up in the event of a power cut.
