It’s rare to find a successful business that can function seamlessly without electricity. In case of loss of power, not only will the lights go out, but all the computer screens will go dark and the machinery will stop, bringing productivity to a screeching halt. This can result in loss of data, productivity and can also compromise the safety of the people working on your property.
In worst case scenarios, power losses can potentially result in severe injuries and fatalities as well. Businesses across the country collectively lose literally billions of dollars on account of power failure annually. This is why, if you are a commercial property owner or the manager of a large-scale manufacturing or industrial unit, you need a fail-safe back up plan. Read on to learn how to avoid power disruptions with a UPS.
The Impact of Power Loss
Whether the power outage just lasts a few minutes or several days, no business can afford disruptions in its operations. They need to function consistently and continuously. When there is a power loss in any commercial or industrial setting the primary concerns are related to how projects will be completed on time and within the set budget. As mentioned at the outset, without power, loss, damage, injury, and decreased revenue are some of the unwelcome realities business owners have to deal with.
But when you have a UPS system installed on your property, it will keep all the equipment and computers etc. running safely and smoothly through any short-term power outage. In case the outage is lengthier, it allows sufficient time for businesses to switch to an alternate power source.
Understanding What A UPS Is
UPS is an acronym for uninterruptible power supply and it helps provide interim power supply in case there is an outage. Today, there is a significant advancement in this technology as maintaining power to various essential operations & systems becomes increasingly critical. The world continues to become more and more data-driven and that has altered the overall power needs of the world.
Big Data and the Internet continue driving up the demand for more reliable and clean power. Energy spikes, dips or surges cause irregularities & fluctuations that can have an adverse impact on your data and your equipment. UPS systems provide consistent, clean and uninterrupted power flow which helps protect against these problems.
Backup power is essentially a backup plan and a good UPS system is a crucial aspect of it. The UPS you opt for might be of a single-phase/ triple-phase configuration. It could be powered by a flywheel component or an array of batteries. UPS systems are available in a range of sizes and capacities – from the little black boxes that provide backup power for personal computers to the megawatt, mega-ton systems that provide power to massive businesses and industrial settings.
- Protect against all types of power interruptions.
- Provides adequate power when there are short-term interruptions as well as some “ride-through” time in order to convert to the backup supply.
- Refines the power quality as it reaches your equipment, office or building.
- Includes a backup source such as generators for long-term outages.
Battery-based systems are typically found in smaller operations while flywheel configurations are for powering large facilities. The latter can replace or augment batteries and deliver instantaneous, plenty and continuous power during outages while switching to an alternate power source.
