Uninterruptible Power Supply, UPS, is an electric device that supplies power when the primary source is cut off or interrupted. It, therefore, protects users from losing crucial documents they are still working on. With a UPS system, you can save your work, shut down your device correctly and then continue as normal once power is restored.
Below are types UPS and benefits of using each type of Uninterruptible Power Supply (GE UPS System).
This type typically consists of a DC/AC and AC/DC inverter, a static switch, battery, a surge suppressor (TVSS or SPD Device), and a low pass filter that reduces switching frequency of the output voltage. It remains on standby, only starting when there is a power failure. Immediately the power is interrupted, the transfer switch spontaneously transfers the electrical load to the backup power.
Standby UPS systems come in convenient sizes, are highly efficient and relatively more affordable than other types. Check out our GE IT Series, VH Series and GT Series UPS System.
2. Line Interactive
In GE Line Interactive UPS Systems, the AC power inverter and the battery are continually connected to the Uninterruptible Power Source output. Whenever electric power is cut-off, the transfer switch shifts the flow of electricity from the battery to the output load. Since the inverter connected to the load at all times, the UPS offers additional filtering and voltage regulation should there be power surge in the line. Check out our GE IT Series, VH Series and GT Series UPS System. Our GE Systems range in size from 500VA, 750VA, 1000VA, 1500VA, 2000VA, 3000VA up to 10KVA. These systems are either rack mounted UPS Systems or free standing UPS Systems.
3. Double Conversion
Double conversion ups electrics are mostly used for high voltage applications. A UPS electric under this category typically features a configuration same as that of standby ups, except that it has a primary power path focused on the inverter as opposed to the AC main. This type takes the shortest time to transfer from one mode to another since input AC power interruption does not activate the transfer switch. The input AC, instead, charges the backup electric storage, which in turn, supplies power to the output inverter. Check out our GE Lp33 series, SG Series, TLE Series and other ranging from 10KVA, 20KVA, 30KVA, 40KVA, 50KVA, 80KVA, 100KVA, 150KVA, 200KVA, 225KVA, 300KVA, 400KVA, 500KVA, 750KVA, 1000KVA and 1500KVA UPS Systems rated at 208V or 480V 3 Phase.
- UPS electrics output a regulated output voltage that has low harmonic distortions.
- It has a low level of acoustic noise and electromagnetic interference.
- It features least transition times between backup and normal operations
- Has a high degree of efficiency and reliability
- Its output is unaffected by load changes or input voltage.
- There are different types of UPS electric system suitable for various applications.
Some are ideal for low voltage while others are appropriate for high energy applications. Benefits of using UPS are very many, including protecting your electronics from power failures. They also provide additional benefits such as filtering and voltage regulations.
