With the near constant flow of information as the basis of your business, it’s hard to justify leaving your organization without the support of a reliable battery backup. Blackouts and other electrical failures can wreak havoc on the unprepared, disrupting data collections and security systems. When you deal with confidential data collected from your clients, your company cannot afford a shutdown in electricity. More still, if you work in an industrial setting then power interruptions to safety measures can put your employees in life-threatening situations. To protect your staff and the work that they do, you need a sophisticated Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS).
A UPS acts as a failsafe should your place of business experience an interruption in power. It’s designed to switch on as soon as there is any disruption to the flow of electricity. Should your office, building site, or other location see a dip or spike in power, a reliable UPS will turn on and compensate for any fluctuations. A powerful UPS can support a variety of organizations, regardless of their size and power intake. Hospitals, data collection agencies, telecommunication power centres, military installations, and any number of power-draining locations can rely on a UPS, as these battery backups come in a variety of sizes and strengths to accommodate your business’ particular needs.
The most common use a UPS system will see is for small power outages that occur during large storms in the area. These outages may only last for a few seconds, but without a UPS these seconds can cause mayhem to your systems. The ensuing loss of data and time spent re-booting systems translates in a serious loss in capital for your enterprise. Less frequently it will encounter prolonged interruptions to power, but a reliable UPS is no less qualified to handle such a situation. UPS systems should cover a large span of input voltages (anywhere between +10 and 30%), and they should provide a frequency window of 45 to 56 Hz. This means any size business, regardless of scope in power usage, can expect continuous and regulated power output.
Superior UPS systems will include additional features to further protect your operations. Many will come with automatic bypasses that redirect power when its levels are high enough that they could overload internal inverters. They also run on “hot swappable” batteries so that you can replace its batteries without having to turn off the machines it’s regulating. As a result, your business will save money and time, as you won’t have to shut down and reboot machines after you’ve switched out batteries. But truly remarkable UPS systems will offer more, like the ability to remotely check-in to survey its operations. The battery backup products made by Toshiba offer a web-enabled diagnostic system that allows access to the system anywhere and anytime you have connection to a secure network. In addition to the additional features, Toshiba’s diagnostic systems make it possible to monitor power fluctuations, interruptions, and the UPS’ proper operation.
When costly computer breakdowns are caused by power outages, the need for a reliable and consistent access to power becomes clear. Without one, in the event of an outage, your business will lose valuable, confidential data. As a result, you’ll waste time and money recovering lost data. So turn to an Uninterrupted Power Supply to keep your machines supported through any power fluctuation, and save your business.
