Industrial Uninterrupted Power Supply

Industrial Uninterrupted Power Supply

If you run a factory, industrial manufacturing or engineering business, you know exactly how damaging downtime caused by a loss of power can be.  Your deadlines are never going to be met if you can’t use your equipment and no production means no income.  Industrial uninterrupted power supply systems can be exactly what you need to ensure that those sudden power failures and outages don’t affect your business by curbing the halt or slowing down the output caused by power issues.  Even if it’s not power cuts you’re facing but power quality problems, an industrial uninterrupted power supply can help there too.

What is an Industrial Uninterrupted Power Supply?

Industrial uninterrupted power supply units work in very much the same way as home and standard uninterrupted power supply units.  They work by making use of a lead acid battery and a specially designed circuit called an inverter that takes DC power and simulates AC power by creating a sine wave type output.  This allows your attached device or machinery to function normally in the event of a power cut.  By using a power throw switch and a circuit designed to detect changes in the power source, the industrial uninterrupted power supply will switch to battery power in milliseconds in the event of a power output or several other reasons.

There are three different types of industrial uninterrupted power supply units – offline, that relies on the battery for all protection including from power surges, spikes and sags, line-interactive that uses a special coil system to protect against most power irregularities and the battery only for power cuts, and online – the most expensive and reliable, which constantly feeds the device clean, correct power regardless of the input voltage and frequency because the battery is never disconnected from the inverter.

Purchasing an Industrial Uninterrupted Power Supply

  • Insight offer Industrial uninterrupted power supply units from their three locations in Sheffield, London and Manchester.  They offer credit in case your installation needs are too expensive for a cash payment.
  • Ballicom International offer collection from their offices in Coventry or national delivery on a range of industrial uninterrupted power supply systems.

Estimated Costs of an Industrial Uninterrupted Power Supply

Industrial uninterrupted power supply systems can be expensive due to their high power requirements.  For a basic system, you can expect to pay anything from about £100.  For the larger installations and needs, your best bet is to contact the suppliers of these systems for a quotation.

If your power goes down in the middle of a huge job with a tight deadline, you know you’d love to continue working while the power is restored.  Even if all you need is protection from a fluctuating power source like a generator or even the power source itself, you’ll benefit from this type of device.  An industrial uninterrupted power supply can be a lifesaver in any of these cases and can save you from a loss in productivity and help make sure you never miss your deadlines.
