In both residential and commercial environments, UPS is a must-have. It is one of the most effective means of temporary power and it can only be used when the performance is high. To determine whether upgrading to a smart UPS system is worth it for your company, compare the benefits against the cost, deployment time, and return on investment. These systems are available in a range of versions, but you can consider the one which will help with backup power management; manufacturers now provide more than just extra voltage.
What are the advantages of UPS systems?
Data Loss Can Be Avoided: UPS will keep the device running so you have enough time to store or save your data before safely shutting it down.
Power Supply in an Emergency: UPS serves as a stable backup power supply in a power spike or blackout event.
Safeguards the Voltage Sensitive Device from Damaging Electricity: By monitoring power fluctuations, the UPS ensures a consistent output.
Protects from surges: Prevents equipment from being damaged because of power supply interruptions.
Longevity of the battery: Allows continue operating in operational mode even though there is a power outage, as it ensures constant charging once you connect a UPS to a battery.
What are the additional features of the Smart-UPS?
Predictive warnings: Smart UPSes track device failure or failure potential so that defective or aging components can be replaced before they fail. In the event of a battery failure, emergency maintenance can be performed to replace the defective battery and prevent the device from switching to a weak, overcharged, or unavailable backup power supply.
• Scheduled shutdowns
• Error notifications
• Energy usage reporting
• Energy costing
• CO2 emissions monitoring
• Data and event logging
• Analytics Gain insight into how well your data center runs - receive recommendations and data-driven intelligence.
• Mobile insights - Stay connected to your data center with live data and alarms on your smartphone app.
Smart battery: With advanced charging capabilities, this feature helps improve your battery's life and maximum performance. To extend battery life, it can modify the charge voltage depending on battery temperature.
Smart paralleling: This functionality enhances performance at a partial load automatically. It adjusts device energy consumption based on load demand. A minor change like this does not seem to be game-changing, but if implemented throughout the power infrastructure, this could result in superior cost savings as compared to the earlier units.
Remote service: A smart UPS can connect to your network and allow you to access your power remotely. This allows you to integrate UPS management into the data center infrastructure management system, allowing you to manage it from a centralized site.
• View the user interface with a browser for quick access from anywhere on a secure network.
• Enable remote device management of your UPS by connecting it directly to the network.
• Get real-time error event notifications to quickly respond to critical situations, reduce repair time, and maximize uptime.
• Eliminate the need to dispatch technicians to remote locations by rebooting equipment remotely
Futuristic Power conditioning: Most UPSes have a layer of power conditioning, but a smart UPS will guarantee that every load received is optimally configured and balanced current supply. Anything from unexpected outages and spikes to minute surges and power disturbances can be protected from your equipment.
Modular Architecture: There are many varieties of battery modules, but a modular UPS system will guard against isolated failures. This, in turn, leads to higher availability and increased redundancy, all of which are critical to the stable operation of a UPS. A modular power system is also easier to scale if you need to integrate batteries or capacity without extending the UPS volume.
Millions of IT professionals around the world depend on Smart-UPS to secure equipment and sensitive data from expensive outages by reliably and efficiently delivering network-grade electricity. There is a model for practically every application and budget, available in a variety of form factors and classes (entry-level, normal, and extended run). Standard versions are the most popular UPS for enterprise servers, storage, and network equipment around the world, and they've long been the gold standard for reliability and manageability.
Small and medium enterprises looking to secure small networking systems, point-of-sale (POS) equipment, and entry-level servers should consider entry-level Smart-UPS models. External battery packs can be used with the extended run models to provide long runtime for sensitive servers, security, and communication systems during outages that could last several hours.
