The need for effective UPS maintenance is imperative in this ever changing critical infrastructure.
An industry whitepaper has been published which details a number of effective ways to prolong the lifespan of a single-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Aside from offering sound advice for the technically minded, we at Power Control Ltd believe that the article further outlines the importance of UPS maintenance packages for power protected businesses.
The advice offered in the article, written by Justin Solis, explains the numerous factors that help determine the lifespan of a UPS system. It also describes how a proper maintenance program should go much further than simply checking that UPS batteries are functioning and outlined the need for rigorous inspection of vital components on a regular basis.
"The tips talked about in the industry article are nothing new for those in the business," said Mark Trolley, managing director here at Power Control. "What it does though is outline the range of considerations that need to be taken to effectively maintain a UPS system and in many cases experience counts for everything."
The environment that the uninterruptible power supply is housed in is also an important consideration of UPS maintenance. If the temperature is too high then the service life of sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries will be shortened. High temperatures also mean cooling fans will be in operation permanently thus shortening the service life of this vital component.
