What should be considered when buying a UPS system?
Existing Installations Consider a central back-up system to eliminate expensive re-cabling. Wise to involve a company specialising in power conditioning.
New Installations Access the level of power protection required. Some installations may demand that every
item is supported by UPS, others may only require UPS for a central server and one or two workstations.
Type of Client/Application Emergency services, financial institutions, Industrial etc. This can have an impact on the system specification.
Site Location Inner city areas may be more susceptible to power fluctuations. Rural areas may be affected by weather conditions on power lines. More remote areas may be located at the very end of the power line.
