There are several reasons for loss of power including: fallen trees, vehicle accidents, construction, or weather related issues. Without power, business screeches to a halt, inhabitants of buildings can be injured, and equipment can be damaged. Power outages can last from a few minutes to several days. To protect your business in the event of an outage, you should have a battery backup plan. JKS can engineer a specific battery backup plan for your company.
Having an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) ensures no data loss occurs and keeps your IT systems running seamlessly. A UPS is a power source that ensures equipment can continue to run temporarily if the primary power source is lost as well as protect equipment from power surges.
Outages, power glitches, surges, or dips can cause data and productivity loss to a company, resulting in missed deadlines, damaged equipment, data loss, or corrupt files. Collectively, American businesses lose approximately $50 billion yearly due to power failure.
A UPS can be implemented using a single-phase or triple-phase configuration using an array of batteries or flywheel component. Flywheel components can replace batteries while delivering continuous, ample power throughout an outage or while switching to an alternate power source. The size varies and can power anything from a small battery to power a workstation, to a large model with the capacity to power a large building. UPS can provide power for both short-term and long-term outages. Larger systems generally include a switch gear and power transformer to provide reliable power, guaranteeing absolute minimal downtime yearly.
There are three main types of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and they work in different ways.
A stand-by system, or line-preferred or offline UPS: consists of an inverter, battery, static switch, low-pass filter and surge suppressor. It usually remains on stand-by unless there is a primary power failure.
A line-interactive system: has a battery and inverter that are always connected to the output. In the case of power failure, a switch will change the electrical flow. This continuous connection allows for superior filtering.
A double conversion system: has a backup battery which is charged by the input AC and powers the output inverter, providing a seamless switch.
