UPS Maintenance - 5 Pillars

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

Your UPS system is simple enough to operate. Once it’s hooked up to your building properly, it is ready to go. The moment you lose power from your utility, the transition is seamless. However, thorough UPS maintenance is crucial to getting that kind of “always ready” service.

Let’s take a closer look at the five pillars of UPS maintenance:

1. Make a UPS Maintenance Schedule (And Use It!)

You have plenty of things to do, and UPS maintenance may be near the bottom of your list. To keep your emergency power system going strong, take a proactive approach. Key components of your system, like the rectifier, inverter, and batteries, should be inspected regularly. Contracting with a trusted UPS maintenance team is ideal, as they’ll help keep you on schedule.

UPS batteries work together in multiple strings to supply emergency power to your building in the event of a power outage. Many UPS systems can also compensate for line voltage issues that don’t take your power offline, but might otherwise damage sensitive electrical equipment.

Consumer-grade UPS systems often use lithium ion batteries that are very safe. These batteries have increased in capacity over the years while staying at a manageable size. For example, they are used in today’s electric cars. However, they’re not widely used in business-class systems.

Battery backup systems use more complex nickel-cadmium or lead-acid batteries. Lead-acid batteries, in particular, introduce significant safety risks into the work environment.

Reliable battery backup equipment is a great investment for your enterprise. Still, it’s vital to update your employee safety policies around the equipment that you introduce.
