Eaton’s Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) helps companies protect their critical data equipment from the various power failure, sags, and surges that can occur.  These issues not only lead to down time but can also adversely affect your Data Equipment.

According to Eaton there are 3 reasons companies need power protection:

Reason #1: Utility companies

Utility power isn’t clean. By law, it can vary widely enough to cause significant problems for your equipment.

Utility power isn’t 100% reliable. In the U.S., it’s 99.9 percent reliable, which translates into a likely nine hours of total downtime every year. Just from issues at the power company.

Reason #2: The problems and risks are intensifying

High-tech equipment is highly sensitive. Computing and networking components are more vulnerable than ever to power problems. As technology improves, high-density servers are doing more, which puts more at risk.

Downtime is costly. Some industry estimates believe the U.S. economy loses between $200 billion and $570 billion a year as a result of outages and other disturbances.

Reason #3: Generators and surge suppressors are not enough

Generators only work when the power’s off. Backup generators address outages but provide no protection from the other power disturbances.

You need more than a surge protector. Surge suppressors take care of power surges but provide no protection from under-voltage, variance conditions and other power problems.

Whiles these problems can cause headaches and cost your business money UPS systems perform three primary functions to keep your systems up and running despite power issues: 

First, a line-interactive or Double-conversion UPS conditions the incoming dirty power from the utility company. It filters out the irregularities and gives you clean, uninterruptible power.

Second, it provides ride-through power to cover for sags or short-term outages (3 minutes to several hours, depending on what you need),

Finally, it enables seamless system shutdown during a complete power outage.
