ALL ABOUT UPS

What is is an UPS?

It is a device that protects electronic equipment against electrical hazards.

It is a box placed between the electrical network and the materials to be protected. It Works thanks to a battery which is permantly charged and which takes over in the event of a power failure. The battery provides a safe electrical wave (hence the term “inverter”)to your equipment.

What is an UPS used for?

1. It protects your equipment from damage caused by electrical problems: it constantly checks the electrical voltage arriving at your equipment and makes it possible to smooth the electrical voltage by switching to a backup battery during electrical problems such as power cuts, overvoltages or voltage drops.

2. It ensures, in the event of a power failure, the continuity of operation of the connected equipment during the emergency time allowed by its batteries (autonomy)

The difference types of UPS

There are 3 types:

OFFLINE : as soon as a current anomaly is detected, the battery takes over to power your devices.

ONLINE : smarter, they can compensate for a drop or an increase in voltage and only go into battery mode when it is really necessary (in the event of a powercut), thus extending the life of the battery.

INTERACTIVE LINE: they regulate the voltage continuously because the batteries are connected in series between a charger / rectifier and the UPS, so there is no more switching. We obtain almost perfect reactivity, a perfectly pure and regulated signal and optimal protection of your data and applications in the event of a sudden outage.

Characteristics of UPS

The Power:

Before choosing the power of your UPS, you must add up the consumption ofall the devices that will be connected to it. The problem is that in general, the consumption of computer equipment is expressed in Watts. To quickly convert Watts to VA, you can use this approximate formula : 

Number of VA = Number of Watts / 0.6

Connectivity:

USB: some models have a USB socket and are capable of communicating with a computer in order to order it to stop before their battery runs out.

Standard Sockets / IEC 320 sockets : in addition to the standard sockets, the sockets on the UPS, especially on low power models, can be of the IEC 320 C13 type and therefore specific to IT equipment.

Telephone sockets: UPS with telephone input and output are able to protect the modem / router from overvoltages
