Uninterruptible power supplies and standby power systems have consumable parts that will age with use. At some point during the period of its life a power protection device will alarm due to a service issue – the batteries may need replacing, the fans may have failed or the system developed a PCB fault.
Any of these circumstances will result in the product not being able to provide battery run time when the mains fails or protection from mains related power problems such as spikes and electrical noise, sags and surges.
Ask yourself some of the following questions:
When did you last check the battery run time on your UPS? How long did they support the load for? When was the last time you arranged for your UPS to have a maintenance visit?
It is recommended that all UPSs are checked and serviced once a year. It’s not just the internal components of a UPS which require checking, the inside of a UPS also needs cleaning. Dust particles that build up inside the unit by air being drawn will need removing.
The more you rely on your power system the more you need it maintained. For a maintenance quotation please get in touch with our data centre experts.
