Voltage surges or unexpected fluctuations in voltage, blackouts, and brownouts can have adverse effects on the life of equipment that runs on electricity; they can short-circuit, burn-out or result in component malfunction and loss of valuable data. An uninterruptible power supply system (UPS) protects electrical equipment from known problems in power supply. It ensures that equipment receives steady voltage, maximising lifespan and operating function.

UPS act as buffers against power disruptions and provide battery backup in the event of the power going out. This is important for all applications whether a home office, business, industrial or critical application such as on mine sites, medical, defence and marine. Fluctuations in voltage can damage equipment and cause disruption to work.

The sudden increase or decrease in voltage levels can cause components in electrical and electronic equipment to fail. In certain equipment, such sensitive components, this can be catastrophic. A UPS system will protect your sensitive equipment through an AVR (automatic voltage regulator).

Backup & Stay Connected

Power outages are a common problem around the world and when there’s a blackout, businesses and homeowners are both affected. Businesses cannot operate, resulting in a loss of revenue and home users cannot continue to work or be connected remotely.

A UPS provides temporary backup power, so that you can continue with your everyday tasks at home, even if it is simply accessing the internet, and businesses can keep operating smoothly and ensure equipment is shut down safely.

A Good Investment

At Power Shield we have UPSs for all applications and for every budget. Compared to the expense of downtime, loss of data and worse – damage to equipment, a UPS is a sound investment that can quickly outweigh the initial cost.
