Why is maintenance on a UPS necessary?

in FAQ

Experience shows that with structured service maintenance procedures, possible problems and faults can be detected much earlier before they develop into costly repairs or unplanned shutdowns.

While most UPS products are supplied with a standard 12 month parts and labour warranty this does not mean that the equipment does not require routine maintenance to ensure it is maintained at the optimum level of performance and reliability.

With small inexpensive Plug’n’Play solutions the cost of maintenance is usually considered disproportionate against the cost of a new system. It is difficult to argue against this statement, but it is worth considering what your potential TOTAL cost in terms of money, and perhaps more importantly time, if the UPS failed just when you needed it most!
