Uninterruptible Power Supply

What is an Uninterruptible Power Supply?

An uninterruptible power supply is an innovative solution that allows a computer to keep running for a short time. It contains a battery that automatically kicks in when the computer’s source of power is cut. PCs are packed with valued and high-tech hardware but are too delicate when a sudden loss of power occurs. Furthermore, there’s also a lot of memory-based tech software that becomes at risk when such events happen.

Uptime Systems knows how the instances mentioned can provide damage to your computer and applications. Fortunately, an uninterruptible power supply protects both hardware and software that is susceptible to damage from power surges. These include home and work personal computers and networks, telephones and other IT equipment. Additionally, UPS units offer peace of mind and an extra level of safety. This has resulted in increasing popularity and demand for add-on peripherals for many hardware-critical electronic devices.

Types of Uninterruptible Power Supply

In today’s market, there are various types of uninterruptible power supply. They vary in configurations such as connectivity interfaces, built-in display screens, software management and so on. To give you a better understanding, here are the three types of UPS in the market:

1. Online UPS

An online UPS is not related to internet connectivity but rather how it operates. It’s typically the most expensive because it offers the greatest security features against sudden electrical fluctuation. It constantly filters, stores and delivers electrical flow to your PC even when everything is normal.

2. Standby UPS

Contrary to the above-mentioned type, standby UPS remains idle until needed. It’s more cost-effective for most PC owners.

3. Hybrid or Line-Interactive UPS

Hybrid UPS is a middle-ground solution yet has an efficient balance between security, performance and cost. It offers varying operating modes such as double conversion, economy and active filter mode.
