UPS Electrical Services

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

Your uninterruptible power supply is an important part of your electrical infrastructure. Getting the UPS electrical features you need depends on choosing the right UPS architecture. UPS electrical devices vary in several ways, not just in size and overall battery capacity.

Because there are so many options to choose from, it’s often helpful to get information directly from a team of UPS electrical experts. Let’s take a closer look at some of the major variations and which might be right for you:

Standby UPS

A standby UPS is the most basic type. Versions of this UPS are used in both commercial and consumer settings. During a blackout, voltage sag, or another utility failure, the standby UPS switches to DC battery power – then converts that power to AC to run attached equipment.

Standby UPS is the most common and the least expensive. However, it is also the most limited in terms of its capacity and features. It is appropriate for POS systems, security systems, and entry-level computers, but won’t be sufficient for your critical equipment.

San Jose UPS Backup Battery Service & Installation

A UPS backup battery system is an essential part of protecting your San Jose business from the impact  of electrical problems. But getting your UPS backup battery running doesn’t end with choosing the right product for you. A quality installation is indispensable to your long-term success.

A commercial UPS backup battery can accomplish many things depending on its size. You might choose a system that can keep your major building systems, like light and air conditioning, running for the full duration of an emergency. Or you might attach a smaller system to servers or other critical equipment.

Paired with an emergency generator, a large UPS backup battery may allow you to operate indefinitely at a time when other businesses on your block have to close their doors. But no matter your strategy, a backup solution must be installed with the utmost care to deliver the service you expect.

3 Phase UPS for Commercial Buildings

Written by Nite and Day Power on .

Are you considering a 3-phase UPS for your commercial building? The 3 phase UPS provides an even more reliable approach to delivering battery backup power. To understand just why a 3-phase UPS is superior in many cases, you need to know a little bit about how electricity is delivered.

Understanding Phase in Electrical Delivery

The phase describes the current or voltage as mapped out over time. Under ideal operating conditions, a phase graph would show a gently curving wave going up and down, then up again. In technical terms, this is a sine wave. It represents a safe and steady transfer of power to equipment.

Having high-quality energy transfer makes a substantial difference when you’re working with sensitive equipment. Voltage spikes and sags can damage electronic components and shorten the lifespan of mission-critical equipment like high-end servers.

Single-phase power distribution uses a dual-wire alternating current power circuit, which entails just one power wire and one neutral wire. This is also referred to as residential power, because it is used almost exclusively for domestic power consumption needs from lighting, heating, and small appliances.

Since the flow of one-phase electricity comes through a single wire, there are many more situations that disrupt the current between the electrical utility and the endpoint in your building. Conversely, a three-phase power connection consists of three separate conductors.
