ENERGY: UPS a Continuous Power Supply
Recent Gauteng Business News
An uninterruptible power system (UPS) provides instantaneous protection from power interruptions. Liebenberg explains, “A UPS is the first line of defence against surges and power outages and is a reliable solution for businesses, factories, offices and even home use.” A UPS is an ideal power solution to electrical equipment that on failure may result in injuries, fatalities, significant business disruption or data loss.
Ranging in size and capabilities a UPS is frequently used to maintain power to computers, data centres and telecommunication equipment. “A UPS can provide power to a computer, an entire building or even cities. This variety of application means that when choosing a UPS solution customers should assess the requirements of the power supply unit inside their IT equipment as this will influence UPS selection, performance and reliability,” says Liebenberg.
Many companies in South Africa have installed or investigated installing generators to combat power loss, however this route can be very costly especially for smaller operations, installation of a UPS can provide a quality solution at an affordable price, explains Liebenberg.
“By providing a continuous supply of power to all devices connected to the UPS, customers are able to avoid malfunction, damage and downtime that can result from the inevitable power cuts and surges,” concludes Liebenberg.
