WHAT IS A UPS SYSTEM?
An Uninterruptible Power Supply, or more commonly known as a UPS System is essentially a battery back up in the case of a power outage. A UPS System can be relatively small, to back up computers and electronic equipment, or they can be big enough to power an entire town, and everything in between.
The benefits of a UPS System are that there is a virtually seamless interruption of power, meaning if your building has a power surge or outage, you equipment load will switch to rechargeable batteries within the UPS System, giving you uninterrupted power. This allows equipment, machinery, and personnel to continue working, even if the power goes out.
Imagine you have employees operating forklifts, heavy machinery, up on ladders and scaffolding… The power goes out. Think of the potential injuries, damaged goods, trip hazards and heaven forbid, fatalities that could occur. Simply because of a power outage. The benefits of having a back up system are priceless.
