The basic function of a UPS is to provide short-term power when the input power source fails. The UPS will also provide protection from power surges and voltage spikes. The three main types of UPS systems are off-line, line-interactive, and on-line.
A UPS is typically used to protect computer systems, data centers, telecommunication equipment, or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power outage could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption, or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor to large units powering entire data centers.
ETS can test your UPS to check the input voltage and frequency. The UPS should be connected to a power source that can provide the correct voltage and frequency. If the input voltage is too low or too high, the UPS will not work correctly.
A UPS's batteries should be inspected regularly too. The batteries should be charged and in good condition. If the batteries are not charged, the UPS will not be able to provide power for very long.
Power surges and voltage spikes can damage electronic equipment. The UPS will absorb the energy from the power surge or voltage spike and protect the equipment.
A UPS is a critical piece of equipment for any business that relies on electronic equipment. A UPS will provide power during a power outage, protect equipment from power surges and voltage spikes, and provide a backup power source.
