What is a Backup Power/UPS?

UPS stands for uninterruptible power supply or uninterruptible power source. It is an electrical component that provides emergency power when the primary power source fails.


What are the Benefits of Backup Power/UPS?

UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or generator because it provides instant protection from power interruptions by supplying energy stored in batteries. The systems may provide sufficient power until the primary power source returns or a back-up source can be supplied.


What is Driving Demand for Backup Power/UPS?

Several factors are causing increased demand for backup power/UPS. First, increased reliance on electricity for everything from life-saving healthcare equipment to critical data in the cloud makes access to electricity more critical than ever. Additionally, new applications such as renewable energy production, distributed generation and load shaving are providing new uses for UPS technology.
