UPS systems have been in general use across main industries for well over a decade now. Despite this, they are still rather unknown devices. Today we are going to look behind the curtain, by answering some of the most common questions that get asked. 1. What is a UPS? A UPS, also known as […]
UPS failure can result from many factors. When this happens, there is unfortunately no shortage of potential mishaps. Whether you are operating aging infrastructure or looking to optimize the lifespan of newer equipment, consider some of the most common UPS components that are susceptible to failure: 1. Batteries. As the heart of any UPS system, […]
Like all electronic and electrical equipment, A UPS needs sufficient maintenance in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure optimal reliability. However, a UPS located in harsh environmental conditions can fail even if it is well-maintained. The number one way to keep your UPS up and running is to schedule regular maintenance checks. Here are […]
Because the banking and the financial sectors play a pivotal role in economic growth and stability, the industry requires an uncompromised level of reliability and uptime — and a high-quality power protection solution is an investment that yields huge dividends. In fact, an uninterruptible power system (UPS) is one of the most cost-effective means of safeguarding critical equipment, protecting highly sensitive data, and ensuring consumers maintain continuous access to funds.
A study by the Electric Power Research Institute found that businesses lose between $104 billion and $164 billion per year due to power interruptions, and another $15 billion to $24 billion in from other power quality problems. It’s not hard to see how the numbers add up. Just consider what an outage of a day […]
An isolation transformer is made of two copper coils that are wound around each other and are each supplied by their own power source. While the term “isolation transformer” technically refers to any transformer, it is specifically a transformer that isolates a circuit from an alternating current. An isolation transformer does this by separating two […]
There are three (3) main UPS topology and each offers specific advantages which tend to be application-driven-in order to match customers’ present and future needs.

With its widest input frequency range (40 – 70 Hz) and true double version, digital signal processors technology, wide input voltage range (110 -300V) amongst several amazing features, the PowerPack SE Series 6 – 10kVA is unarguably the most rugged UPS. This was a major discovery at the workshop/training for Power Engineers. During the interactive session, […]
The common components of a UPS include; The Main Board; The Central board is the main heart of the UPS. Like the brain, it controls the whole signals. The Rectifier; The rectifier converts D.C to A.C. The rectifier has two main functions. One is to charge the batteries (like an alternator in a car) so your […]
