Uninterruptible power supply is necessary and vital to managing any reliable communication infrastructure to ensure that no valuable information, function, or data is lost or compromised in the event of an unexpected loss of power.
What is Uninterruptible Power Supply?
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a battery-powered system that initiates as soon as a primary power source to a computer or machine fails, surges, or is lost entirely. These devices also intervene if there is a power surge, and protect the machine from damage.
The common power disturbances such as outages, sags, or swells are typically responsible for IT communication downtime.
Types of Uninterruptible Power Supply in a Data Center
A data center must have a reliable backup system in place, so that the information stored or communicated through their systems and servers maintains its integrity and security if the primary power source wavers or fails.
There are 3 main types of UPS systems commonly used for backing up data centers:
- Voltage and Frequency Independent (VFI)
- Voltage Independent (VI)
- Voltage and Frequency Dependent (VFD)
In every UPS system, a rectifier is used to convert incoming AC power to DC power. The power is converted back through an inverter. Batteries are used to store reserve energy in case of a loss in the main utility power source. A bypass circuit is used to keep power flowing between the inverter and the rectifier to make sure that the current IT load needed is met with either utility or reserve power.
Such systems help the health and integrity of the IT information, and prevent failures or damages in the power supply needed to run them smoothly and seamlessly.
The Important Role of Power Management Services
ABT Power Management supplies battery-powered UPS devices and overpowers and outperforms the competition with an advanced approach to full service power management for both motive and reserve power needs.
This means we not only provide the high quality batteries needed, but we also communicate with them through an innovative IT system that allows expert technicians to monitor the battery health as well as the power output. This helps add an extra layer of preparedness and protection against outages and the resulting downtime it means for companies relying on the systems run through their data center.
Having a reputable, professional power management company such as ABT Power Management manage data center reserve systems and procedures can help a business grow to new dimensions by opening up time for key partners to focus more on their company missions and initiatives.
