UPS Installation and Commissioning
Installing an emergency power supply system into an existing or new building can call for many specialised skills, which are not always available through a conventional electrical contractor. Where a Generator and UPS system are being installed, many technical considerations have to be well thought through and planned. Some of these may include the following.
Where can the switchgear be placed for maximum benefit?
What sort of cooling is required to maintain maximum
UPS System efficiency and prolong battery life?
Where should the UPS System be sited to maximise space?
What sort of access is required for UPS maintenance?
What is the best type of UPS system for the purpose
What is the best type of data coms for the application?

UPS Maintenance Health Check
An uninterruptible power supply is a crucial piece of equipment. It’s essential that you can rely on it to provide critical power protection at all times. But wear and tear over time is inevitable, and without regular check-ups a UPS’s performance can easily become compromised, increasing the likelihood of failure and downtime.Our specialist UPS Health Checks give you the peace of mind that your units are running at peak performance and optimum efficiency.
What’s Included In A UPS Health Check?
- Visual test: thorough inspection of the installed UPS system / battery set
- Physical tests: review of all electrical connections. Thermal imaging included as standard to detect the hardest-to-find heat-related issues
- Mechanical tests: functional checks including recording electrical measurements and the system’s operational state
- Environmental tests: check the surroundings for possible problems such as dust or humidity
- Download and comprehensive review of the UPS history logs
- Firmware upgrades
- Full reporting of any faults found during the PMV
- Our recommendations to improve operational reliability
