What Are Uninterrupted Power Supplies?
Uninterrupted power supplies (UPS) are just that! They are power sources providing uninterrupted power when there is a main power or primary power source failure and before the diesel, gasoline or propane generator backup power kick on. Remember that backup power takes several seconds to get started and to get connected to the load. It is great to always have the best of uninterrupted power supplies so you always have ZERO power interruption!
These UPS power sources are your best buddy when you wish to supply continuous power to certain equipment. These power supplies are equipped with a sensing circuit that tells the system that the main source of power has stopped. The UPS automatically kicks on and there is no power interruption whatsoever.
Remember that your UPS will not be part of a transfer switch. It will be directly connected to the equipment when the primary power source fails. This is the major difference between a backup power system and a UPS sytem.
