A UPS or uninterruptible power supply is a device that immediately provides backup power in the event of a power failure.
UPS is usually used for computers or other devices such as network equipment. This will allow users to save everything to avoid data loss and properly shut down the computer.
Having a UPS in a company is a must. Based on our experience, it is really a must to have a UPS for companies to prevent downtime. This is also used to prevent damage to equipment and devices, especially during fluctuations in electricity.
You can never be sure of these small fluctuations because sometimes it can still affect your devices.
In the past, one UPS was not enough to accommodate all the IT equipment. Some routers are only plugged into direct contact. There was this time when fluctuations were present from time to time. It is becoming a big problem, when said routers have to be restarted again due to power outage. This has also caused business to slow down.
Having a UPS in a company has become a non-negotiable business necessity. The emergency power depends on the size of the UPS and its current load. If you have a small UPS, it can give you 5 – 15 minutes backup power. If you want more minutes, we would recommend you get a larger capacity UPS as it can hold more charge compared to a small size UPS. Although a UPS may come at a price, this is an imperative investment for a company.
To maximize the use of the UPS, connect only the important or critical pieces of equipment, such as servers and other related equipment. Do not connect devices that do not require immediate power or emergency power, such as photocopiers and coffee machines!< /p>
Some of you may ask if a UPS and a generator have the same functions. The answer is no. A UPS differs from a generator because a UPS immediately provides emergency power during a power outage. A generator only acts as a backup power supply, meaning that devices will continue to be powered off for some time during a power outage and resume only if the generator is already on.
