What is UPS?
UPS is the English abbreviation of Uninterruptible Power Supply.
UPS came into being with the birth of computers and communication equipment. As the peripheral equipment of electronic information system, UPS is an important external equipment with energy storage device, inverter as the main component, voltage and frequency stabilization output, and can provide continuous, stable and uninterrupted power supply.
In principle, UPS is a power electronic equipment integrating digital and analog circuits, automatic control inverter and maintenance free energy storage device.
In terms of function, UPS can effectively purify the mains power when the mains power is abnormal; It can also supply power to computers and other equipment for a certain period of time when the mains power is suddenly interrupted, so that you can have plenty of time to cope.
UPS can solve the power failure, low voltage, high voltage, surge, noise and other phenomena of existing power. It is usually used as the backup power supply system for computers, servers, computer network systems and various high-precision electronic and electrical equipment, so as to ensure the normal operation of the system in case of power failure. UPS is called the "lifeline of computer". Therefore, with the popularization and development of electronic information technology and application, UPS will occupy an important position in our production, work and life.
Do you know?
American enterprises lose 50 billion dollars every year due to power failure accidents. In addition, computers need a stable power supply to work properly, and problems such as surges or voltage drops can also cause computer system crashes.
