What is a UPS and how can it help your business?
As a business owner, do you know why a UPS is good for offices or retails spaces? Think of your own business, for example. What do you do to protect your hardware in case of an unexpected power outage? Read this week’s blog and power up your business with a UPS today!
What is a UPS and how does it work?
The first thing that probably comes to mind is ‘package delivery’ and we don’t want to create any false expectations. But we’d like to invite you to a ‘tech talk’ instead: how a UPS can protect your technical equipment and other commercial electrical devices, more exactly.
First and foremost, UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. Basically, this electrical device generates emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. Plus, a UPS also provides protection 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. Then, you would 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?
To demonstrate what a well-functioning UPS can do for you, we’ve put together some of the main benefits:
- It protects employees’ work so they can securely save it, then safely shut down the computer
- It keeps hardware and computers safe
- It can maintain online sales and transactions
- It minimises downtimes, too
So why do businesses prefer to use an Uninterruptible Power Supply after all? For that little extra time your employers need to save any work on their computer during a power outage. All these while giving you the peace of mind of having valuable data and electrical equipment protected.
