If you are like most businesses in London, United Kingdom, you have uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems that keep your computers running in case of a power outage. Unfortunately, most businesses do not maintain the UPS system on their equipment, which leads to a breakdown of the system at the worst possible time – when your business needs it the most!

What’s inside an APC Smart-UPS?
The Smart-Ups is an uninterruptible power supply that provides protection from power spikes, surges, brownouts, blackouts, and sags. It has a battery that can last up to 15 minutes in the event of a power outage so you can shut down your system safely.

We offer professional installation services with years of experience. If you’re looking for UPS support or need any other type of help with this type of equipment, don’t hesitate to contact us today! There are many things to consider when purchasing a UPS including How long does the backup power last? What will happen if my system draws more power than the backup power supplies? Will it continue running even if I am using all of my devices at once? What happens if there is not enough air circulation? Can it accommodate new technology as needed?
Having a UPS installed in your business is just one of the many things that can be done to protect against power outages. The most important part of your UPS installation is having a properly trained technician install it. This technician should be able to evaluate what’s best for the needs of your business, based on factors such as: What will happen when the power goes out? How long will it take for you to reboot? What are your company’s policies about data retention? A technician will then be able to build you a customized plan for this equipment, which may include generators or standby power. Depending on where you are located, you could have several types of backup systems installed. If you have an office building with retail stores inside, different backups may be needed than if the only function was manufacturing facilities. For those clients who need help deciding what type of generator system would work best for them, we offer free assessments!
With our knowledge and expertise, we are confident that we can find a solution for all our clients’ needs. We want to make sure that all businesses stay up and running so they don’t miss deadlines, get behind on orders, or lose any valuable customer information during these critical times.
Testing and inspection
Before installation, a UPS needs to be tested for any potential problems. There are a number of tests that can be run, but the most important one is the load test. This simulates how much power your equipment will require from the UPS. It’s also helpful to check for voltage fluctuations in order to make sure your equipment is safe from power spikes. Once you’ve determined that all is well with your new UPS installation, it’s time for routine maintenance. This ensures that your business stays up and running no matter what happens. However, there are many different factors that could disrupt the stability of your system- everything from tripped circuits and faulty circuit breakers to wind storms and lightning strikes. That’s why we offer emergency services to our customers who need them. We come when they call us- day or night- no matter where they’re located- so they can get back on track as soon as possible. We’ll evaluate the situation and fix whatever went wrong right away so your business isn’t impacted too much by the problem.
Replacing batteries when needed
Batteries in a UPS are designed to last for 5 to 7 years. When the batteries start to show signs of wear, they should be replaced as soon as possible. If you wait too long, the battery life will be significantly reduced and there may not be enough time left before your next power outage.
How often should I replace my UPS batteries?
The standard lifespan for a UPS battery is five to seven years. A good rule of thumb is that if a battery has been in service for over seven years, it should be replaced regardless of its condition or output levels. We recommend that every five years you ask your vendor about new replacement options. Newer lithium-ion technology can potentially provide more power for longer periods than lead acid, nickel-cadmium (NiCd), nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH), or valve-regulated lead acid (VRLA).
What does the state of charge mean on a UPS display panel?
The state of charge indicates how much charge is remaining in the battery bank at any given time. Generally speaking, 100% means full charge and 0% means no charge at all. Some batteries have only two states of charge: 100% and 0%. Some have four: fully charged, 75%, 50%, and 25%. Others use 10 levels such as 100%, 90%, 70%, 40%.
In our opinion, when a battery reaches 30%-40% of capacity, this would typically be considered a low state of charge and should prompt an evaluation for further testing. Keep in mind that some units may display different percentages depending on their make and model so always consult your owner’s manual first.
How do I know when my UPS needs to be serviced?
One way to tell is by reading the alarms. They will indicate whether a system failure has occurred. An alarm could also indicate that maintenance might be needed. For example, warnings of high temperatures inside the enclosure might indicate a cooling fan issue while other alarms could point to something as simple as a loose connection requiring re-treatment.
