UPS Power Supplies
Blackouts, brownouts, power surges…no power supply is immune to these unexpected and potentially devastating scourges. If your computers, alarms or other equipment falls victim to an outage, you may experience loss of data, loss of security, or even permanent electrical damage. Don’t let it happen to you. Be prepared for the unexpected, and equip your security camera system, DVR and computer systems with a reliable uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
The Fundamentals of the Uninterruptible Power Supply
A UPS, sometimes referred to as a battery backup, works simply by providing emergency power to your electronics whenever you need it. Your device will typically provide uninterruptible power for between 5 and 15 minutes, which is more than ample time to safely power down any important equipment. If someone cuts off your main power in the hopes of committing a burglary, your UPS will also give your alarm the power it needs to continue functioning.
Is a UPS Right for You?
It’s important to note that the amount of time that a GPS can keep running depends on numerous factors, including the size of the device and the amount of equipment being protected. Uninterruptible power supplies are best suited as a short-term solution. If you need to secure your equipment for several hours, it is recommended that you consider a generator, as opposed to a UPS.
It’s Not Always Optional
For some people, a UPS unit is more than just a good idea. As you may already know (perhaps that’s why you’re here), some manufacturers will recommend or even require the use of a UPS as part of their warranty agreement. In such cases, failure to use a UPS may void your warranty and leave you high and dry in the event of a malfunction.
