Considerations when renting or leasing a uninterruptible power supply (ups)
An uninterruptible power supply, or a UPS, is a type of electrical device that is capable of providing emergency power to a load in the event that the power fails from the mains or the regular input power source. While this sounds very similar to an ancillary power source, or in emergency power source there are differences. The main difference is the UPS is capable of providing protection from power interruptions instantaneously.
It utilizes the energy that has been stored in the batteries, flywheels, or super capacitors. Therefore, it is quickly and easily accessible by the unit that needs the power. Essentially, this is a battery backup. A number of different types of devices can be plugged into one of the UPS systems. In many cases, they are used for computers and monitors, but they can be used for a wide range of other types of electrical devices as well.
