WHAT IS A UPS?
UPS is an acronym for Uninterruptible Power Supply.
A UPS can help fix most power problems. What many people do not realise is that the power provided to their home or office is at times irregular and not necessarily continuous 230v supply.
The ideal voltage supply is 230v. However, even in residential areas, this can often be over 260v, or under 200v. It can get even worse in industrial areas if you live near or work in these zones due to machinery being used and the drop in power that is drawing from these zones.
A basic standby UPS can sense the voltage is not good enough, and will automatically go to battery power until normal power returns. Other units can adjust the voltage for the connected equipment to keep it at safe levels. Other common power problem can be surges and spikes. This is where the incoming voltage jumps rapidly.
