UPS & Generators

Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) & Standby Generator Installation is an area that most business don’t consider until it is too late. We pride ourselves in discussing such options with our clients. We know that these occurrences in the UK are rare on a national basis but there is always the local and building outages that can not be predicted and there are some business’ i.e. financial business that need such systems to satisfy their internal disaster recovery plans.

UPS

An uninterruptible power supply, also uninterruptible power source, UPS, is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source, typically mains power, fails. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries or a flywheel. The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to run a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment.

A UPS is typically used to protect hardware such as computers, data centres, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor (around 200 VA rating) to large units powering entire data centres or buildings. The world’s largest UPS, the 46-megawatt, Battery Electric Storage System (BESS), in Fairbanks, AK, powers the entire city and nearby rural communities during outages.

Generator

The UPS monitors the electricity supply and manages any ups and downs of the incoming electricity supply, by charging internal batteries sized for the job required; the UPS can also be set up to manage the shut down procedure to maintain critical equipment for a longer period and raise the alarm when such an event occurs.

A back up generator is installed to be triggered in the event of an electricity failure to maintain the power to the designated building circuits until such time as normal electricity supply is reinstated.
