Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)

SPS provides a complete range of both 1-phase and 3-phase UPS products to ensure a constant supply of clean and reliable power for mission critical and industrial applications. In addition to the wide range of UPS systems, SPS offers project management, planning services for end-customers and consultants, and comprehensive UPS support services.

An uninterruptible power supply or uninterruptible power source (UPS) is an electrical apparatus that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source or mains power fails. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying
energy stored in batteries, supercapacitors, or flywheels. The on-battery run-time of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment. It is a type of continual power system.

A UPS is typically used to protect hardware such as computers, data centres,
telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor to large
units powering entire data centres or buildings.

Modern industrial and commercial businesses require more and more high technology, both in equipment and in control functions. This consequently, means high investment and the increasing importance of continuous operation guaranteed by uninterrupted power.
