UPS Site Surveys and Health Checks Available Nationwide at Short Notice without a Contract
A UPS is permanently connected to the mains and powers essential load equipment 24 hours per day, 365 days per year for its entire lifetime. Unnecessary losses incurred by an incorrectly sized or aged UPS can cost the user thousands in wasted electricity.
A site survey of the current UPS loading along with associated electrical infrastructure will highlight where users could make improvements to the general operation of their system.
A site survey or efficiency audit can be completed onsite by an engineer without interruption or risk to the critical load. A detailed report is then issued to the user for consideration or further discussion.
When planning the electrical installation for a large project or data room installation, it is crucial that communications between the various contractors and the customer are unhindered by self-interest; the prime motive has to be the interests of the client.
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, for example:
- Where can the switchgear be placed for maximum benefit?
- What sort of cooling is required to maintain maximum efficiency and prolong battery life?
- Where should the UPS be sited to maximise space?
- What sort of access is required for maintenance?
- What if any exhaust fume extraction is need for the generator?
- What are the best type of data coms for both the generator and UPS
- What type of UPS is best suited to run with an existing generator?
We provide a wide range of on-site tests and surveys that analyse any power problems you may have and determine the best power protection solution for your organisation. Our expert engineers carry out inspections of electrical wiring and collect device data including power usage, load sizing, mains output, and harmonics. We’ll then produce an in-depth report full of actionable recommendations.
For locations with a UPS already installed, our site surveys provide essential advice on optimising your system. They help determine whether components such as batteries, capacitors, and fans need replacement. And if you’re planning to expand, our power surveys can assist with UPS sizing and efficiency.
While for new UPS installations, a site survey will cover key areas such as logistics, electrical installation, commissioning, training, and ongoing UPS maintenance.
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.
- 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 available.
- Full reporting of any faults found during the PMV
- Our recommendations to improve operational reliability
