What is a UPS?

An Uninterruptible Power Supply is a device that sits between a power supply (e.g. a wall outlet) and a device (e.g. a computer) to prevent undesired features of the power source (outages, sags, surges, bad harmonics, etc.) from the supply from adversely affecting the performance of the device.

Can I install the UPS equipment myself?

Many of the smaller “Plug and Play” devices available, which operate in the 650 VA (Volt Amps) to 3000 VA range, can be installed by a computer owner / administrator without the need for a qualified electrician or IT / UPS specialist.  If you have a larger installation, however or need any advice on your UPS installation, then please get in touch.

How long can equipment on a UPS keep running after the power goes?

That depends on how big a UPS do you have and what kind of equipment it protects. For most typical computer workstations, a UPS that is rated to keep the machine alive through a 5 minute power loss is often adequate, just enough time for the critical IT devices to shutdown using the shutdown software.
 
If it is important for a machine to survive hours without power, then a more robust power backup solution, including a generator and other components will be needed.

Why do UPS systems need regular servicing?

The critical nature of UPS systems means that they need to be serviced regularly to ensure that the internal workings of the units and their batteries are functioning correctly.

A carefully structured UPS maintenance programme can safeguard your business against faults and expensive ad hoc repairs, whilst maximising the working life of the UPS.

When does a UPS system generally need replacing?

A UPS system should be replaced when it is at the end of its lifespan and beyond economical repair or when the efficiency savings demonstrated by a new unit outweigh the existing running costs.

The typical lifespan of a UPS unit is 10 years, during which its internal batteries will need to be replaced up to three times. Using comprehensive efficiency reports to highlight the savings a new UPS with up-to-date technology could provide, often it is more economical to change your UPS before its lifespan is reached.

This included an initial site audit, concept design options, followed by orderly shutdown, delivery and commissioning of the new system.

{UPS Power Services have extended the life of our UPS by providing maintenance when APC would not. Bought new batteries from them at a reasonable price which they installed and took away the old ones. Have also had our first annual service check which gave a detailed report on the UPS. Both employees who have been to our offices have been polite and carried out the work cleanly leaving everything as it should be. Only in our first year with them but from our current dealings seem an honest company wishing to give good service with satisfied customers.

The job hasn’t been fed up the ladder (Department/Estates) yet but I can say we are extremely grateful from the professional job received. I’ll be back in touch very soon. Wayne - Feedback sums it up nicely, like wise I’m very grateful for the work that you put into this project, especially the meticulous planning with other contractors to ensure it all went smoothly.

{UPS Power Services supplied our business with a temporary UPS when our ageing old system broke down, the staff attended site to asses the type and size of UPS required with in 4 hrs of my 1st call to them. they then installed the temp system so that we was safe with our back up procedures. We was then quoted for a new system to replace our broken system. Through out the whole procedure UPS POWER SERVICES portrayed them selves in an excellent professional manner from start to finish of the project. I would definitely recommend them.

{We had a very old UPS unit in our server room which urgently needed attention. Ian and the team at UPS Power Services were superb. They did everything they promised, turned up when they said they would and got our UPS back up and running within 24 hrs of the diagnosis. We will happily be using them for all our UPS requirements going forward.
