The role of uninterruptible power supply, or UPS battery backup, in today’s dynamic business environment cannot be undermined. A power failure is an unmitigated disaster not only because of the inconvenience caused but also the great loss of time and money. The UPS has attained the critical role to prevent such power failure-induced downtime and loss of data. Office set-ups today are equipped with all possible infrastructural support to cater to the escalating industry growth, automation and technological advancement. Therefore the UPS battery backup is a vital cog in the wheel for any business, irrespective of the size of the enterprise.
However, there are certain guidelines to consider before you invest in the appropriate UPS system for your business.
Gauge your requirement
You are spoilt for choice with the presence of a wide array of UPS products in the market. It is thus very important for you to gauge and evaluate the scale of power backup that will be required to ensure smooth operations at your workplace. It is a prudent idea to invest in a system commensurate with the electrical infrastructure of your office.
Duration of battery supply
How long you would require the battery backup for is an important criterion for you to choose your UPS system. Some users simply want this backup to save essential work and files before they subsequently switch off their systems. However, some critical businesses require power for the entire duration of the blackout. One must bear in mind that the number of watts supported by the system impacts the battery supply time: the smaller the wattage load connected to the system, the longer the batteries will last.
Types of UPS systems
There are three types of smart UPS systems in vogue – Standby Design, Line Interactive Design and Double Conversion System. Each is designed to combat specific power problems, namely:
Surge – This is caused by a brief and sudden fluctuation of electricity. All the three above-mentioned systems are capable of handling a surge.
Blackout – A blackout is the result of severe weather conditions, utility power shortages, accidents and grid failures. It can be efficiently dealt with by all three UPS models.
Over-voltage – This refers to the incoming voltage exceeding the standard level. Line Interactive and Double Conversion Systems are best equipped to handle this condition.
Frequency variation – This problem is faced when power frequency fluctuates more than usual. You need Double Conversion Systems to combat this condition.
Line noise – Frequency lines have the potential to disturb the performance of a circuit. Once again, a Double Conversion System is required to salvage the situation.
Longevity of a UPS battery
The battery of an UPS will eventually wear out and generally needs replacement every three years or so. Since most of them are lead-acid batteries, they merit safe and supervised disposal.
All of the UPS models mentioned above operate at different scales and capabilities and it’s obvious that a backup UPS catering to a higher scale of power requires larger investments to implement. Therefore, it is imperative to gauge its exact power requirement and opt for the configuration that is suited to the need.
