Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) Overview
The uninterrupted power supply is an integral part of all businesses but sadly forgotten down the bottom of the server cabinet. Like all things built today, it tends to fail at the worst time possible. But this is generally due to lack of maintenance and basic checks that should be performed on a regular basis.
Your server, and business, relies on a well maintained Uninterrupted Power Supply
The lifespan of UPS batteries is typically three-five years, depending on conditions and maintenance. At that time, technicians must replace them to ensure the unit operates properly. Keeping tabs on indicators of problems can ensure uninterrupted service to the equipment and facility operations, and, in many cases, a healthier bottom line.
Fortunately, many newer UPS have advanced monitoring systems that provide system status for such items as system voltage, battery back-up time, and battery test schedule. Other information the system monitors includes whether the UPS operates on batteries, utility power or maintenance bypass. Technicians also must test physical equipment quarterly, semi-annually, or annually using a specific checklist of items to cover.
ATTS have the expertise and the equipment to perform the required tests and ensure your day to day operations run as smoothly as possible. Don’t wait to find out the hard way especially when during the summer months the power demand sometimes exceeds the supply and power companies have scheduled forced shutdowns to cope.
How can ATTS help?
- Conducting visual inspections for wear and deterioration of battery and insulation components
- Cleaning and vacuuming the enclosure
- Monitoring the enclosure's temperature and humidity
- Performing thermal heat scans, which can indicate hot spots that often are the first sign of component failure
- Testing other electrical-system components, such as transfer switches, circuit breakers, and maintenance bypasses
