UPS Systems Gauteng

Invest in a reliable Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS)

The loss of data on top of the damage done to valuable computer systems when the power dips or cuts out completely can set back any growing company and cause more than just a few grey hairs. But Volts Electrical has your back by offering you a selection of some of the industry’s very best UPS systems.

Our UPS devices cater to a range of requirements, making them suitable for companies of all sizes as well as residential homes. With all of our UPS systems, your data will be protected and you will have enough time to safely shut down your computer systems before data is lost or damage is done.

The UPS will help to ensure that your computer has a longer lifespan, by ensuring that the internal components remain working. We can easily meet your needs and help you get set up, so that the stress of a damaging power failure will become a thing of the past.

When uninterruptible power supply is paired with other systems, such as solar power and other power backups, you will be well on your way towards becoming more energy sustainable. In a country like South Africa, where power failures are an ever present threat, having a reliable UPS device for your PC is the first step towards protecting your business.

How does UPS work?

The Uninterruptable Power Supply is fully reliant on having a battery powered energy backup. The system is designed to kick in when there is a sudden blackout, a drop in the voltage or a sudden electrical surge. When any of these three things happens, the UPS will convert to DC battery power and it will then invert to AC power, which is what will keep whatever is attached to the UPS running.

It is an ingenious way to keep things going and certain UPS systems will provide an energy source for longer than others. What is important to be aware of is that the UPS might not be able to power your hardware throughout long periods of downtime.

Often the entire purpose of a UPS is to supply short periods of power to just get you through the saving and shut down process. The size and the design of the UPS will determine just how long its power will last.

The actual device, when it is supplied by the best known UPS manufacturers, can have a really long lifespan. Some of the best can function, without issue, for 13 years or more, so long as they are kept in a good condition. The UPS might need to be replaced sooner than the 13 year mark should you be using it more often than you otherwise would.

Also, it is good to note that a UPS is not necessarily limited to just PC’s and other computer related products. They can be used to power most electrical things, including fans. But since the power capacity is limited, it is not considered the best all-round permanent energy replacement.

If you are keen on adding a UPS to a replacement energy set up, you can quite easily pair a UPS with an inverter, a generator, or a solar energy system. In fact, the more alternative energy solutions you have, the more protected you will be from South Africa’s unsteady national power grid.

The Benefits of having a UPS

Whether it is in the home or the office, having a UPS in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Randburg, Midrand, Sandton, Centurion, or any of the other parts of Gauteng is important and it comes with numerous benefits.

These fantastic sources of energy are generally well priced, which means they can be easily budgeted for. They are also easy to use. Once they are properly connected and charged, they will kick in the moment they are needed.

The other benefits of having a UPS include:

Emergency Power

In those critical moments when the power is cut off, having a UPS can truly make a world of difference, not to mention the fact that it will take the weight of worry off of your shoulders. With your UPS in place, you can continue working for a specific period of time, or you can use the energy that you have to save and shut down while you wait for power to come back on.

Protect Sensitive Components

All hardware systems are designed to have sensitive internal components that will keep things working. But when a fluctuation in energy takes place, these sensitive parts can quickly become damaged. The damage might not be enough to completely destroy the components, but it can be enough to deteriorate the sensitive inner workings to the point that when the next voltage dip or power cut happens, the part will break.

A UPS can protect the sensitive parts of the hardware and ensure the longevity of the system.

Multiple Industry Applications

Just about every company in every industry, as well as private residential homes, lodges, hotels, and hospitals, can make use of a UPS (or several, depending on the amount needed). It can be ideal to rather allow professionals to set up it up for you, if you have any hesitancy.
