What is a UPS and how can it help your business?
How a UPS can protect your hardware from power outages
A UPS, or Uninterruptible Power Supply or Source, is basically an electrical device that generates emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. A UPS also provides protection for your technical equipment and other commercial electrical devices from power surges.
In other words, it acts the same way a laptop battery does. For example, imagine that while you were working on your laptop you lose your mains power connection. The battery would instantly take over. You’d then be able to carry on with your work or shut down the device correctly until the power is restored.
This is what a UPS provides for your desktop computer – a buffer of secure power when you need it most. In other words, it’s a safety measure for your work and computer hardware if you experience a surge, trip or blackout.
What are the benefits of using a UPS in commercial environments?
A well-functioning UPS can:
- Protect your employees’ work so they can securely save it, then safely shut down the computer
- Keep hardware and computers safe
- Maintain online sales and transactions, and
- Minimise downtime.
You can see how using an Uninterruptible Power Supply or UPS can give your employees that little extra time they need to save any work on their computer during a power outage. A UPS can give you the peace-of-mind of having your valuable data and electrical equipment protected.
