Uninterruptible power supplies can be purchased at stores like Walmart, Target, and really any store these days. Most of us know that we need a UPS supply to plug our home theater or computer into in order to protect it. The truth of the matter however is that uninterruptible power supplies are usually not as effective as we all think.
These power supply systems often offer some amount of battery backup time. As well as offering backup time these systems can isolate and do some minimal power cleaning. While it’s true that a UPS supply protects from power fluctuations, it causes power fluctuations itself which is horrible on your electronic equipment. modular enclosures
There are newer systems out called UPQ supplies. The advantage to these type of systems is that they offer 5 stages of power isolation to make the power output a perfect, stable sine wave. This is what all electronic equipment is designed to run on, even though facility power never is that clean coming into your home or business.
Not only do these new UPQ devices clean power, but they offer much longer lasting battery backups which seamlessly transition over when the power is cut. This alone reduces fluctuations that go to your electronic equipment.
Technology is always changing, but the days of UPS systems actually being effective is over. Before you go out and buy one, research and see how expensive UPQ units are as they are the only ones that truly work. You will be greatly appreciative of the UPQ technology as you see how much longer your electronic equipment lasts.
