Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

Advantages and Disadvantages Of Having An Uninterruptible Power Supply

Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) are devices that provide emergency power when the main power supply fails.

In contrast to a backup generator which takes a short while to start and take over the supply, an Uninterruptible Power Supply is able to supply power instantly (or almost instantly), so is the essential choice where PCs, servers or other critical equipment are being operated.

A UPS will also filter mains transients – this will enhance the reliability of the power supply within your equipment.
