Why choose UPS

UPS Systems

If like most people, you frequently leave your computer or other critical electrical equipment powered on, you may need a UPS system. If like many businesses, you need to leave computers or servers on 24/7, you need to protect your power supply with a UPS. These little magic boxes, known as universal (and sometimes uninterruptible) power supplies, protect your critical equipment from power surges and provide backup power in the event of a power outage.

To protect computers and other equipment

PCs, servers, and telecommunication systems operate on a specific voltage and can tolerate minor variations in mains voltage. However, any significant change in the power supply can cause equipment to malfunction, become unstable, lose data, or simply shut down. For businesses that rely on always-on systems, this can become a nightmare, causing you to lose customers, opportunities, security, and money. But this is completely avoidable, just get the right UPS system and you are well protected.

Continuous power supply

Unlike a generator, the right UPS system guarantees a continuous power supply. During a power failure, the power supply to your computer is not interrupted. The computer doesn’t even notice the change in power source, so power problems don’t affect it at all. Don’t risk a power outage negatively affecting your business; the UPS is a simple and reliable solution.

UPS at a reasonable price

UPS systems used to be very expensive, but now there is a type of UPS to suit every budget. It’s no surprise that UPS systems are now manufactured by many large IT companies such as Dell, Belkin, APC, and HP. These folks understand the need for continuous power and have designed UPS systems to fit the task.

To meet the different needs

Each universal power supply is designed to meet the different needs of a range of customers. UPS systems can range from localized units to large units for an entire building. Small, localized units can be connected to a computer via a serial or USB port; it couldn’t be easier. If you need to protect your computer systems from potential power outages, you need a UPS.

Your hard drive will explode

For most people, this is their worst computer nightmare. You wake up in the morning, turn on your computer, and it won’t boot. Sometimes the problem makes itself known with a horrible popping noise. In other cases, you simply get a read error.

Data losses

This is the moment when most people panic. Their first concern is whether the data can be recovered or not. There is no universal answer to this question. In some cases, a simple scan with data recovery software is enough to recover the contents of the drive. In other cases, if you really need it, you will have to spend thousands of dollars and send the drive to a clean lab to have the disks removed for access.

To avoid this situation

Now you are probably wondering if there is a way to prevent this from happening. Well, you’re in luck. Purchasing a UPS is the best and most effective way to prevent your data from being lost.

It’s not foolproof, but having a device that regulates the power to your computer can reduce the risk of hard drive failure by 70%. That figure increases to about 90% if the computer is used during a thunderstorm (my computer repair business always gets a boost after a thunderstorm, as lightning destroys people’s hard drives).

Buy a smart UPS

Don’t be in a hurry to buy a UPS. You need a smart UPS. “Smart” inverters regulate power without having to touch the battery every time the voltage drops, which greatly extends battery life. You also have the option of connecting the PSU to your computer via a serial or USB port so you can monitor the PSU’s operation. This also allows you to gently turn off the system when the power goes out and you are not present.
