Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) generator systems can be installed in
residential and commercial properties. They provides instant power to
your electrical systems when the primary power source is interrupted.
When the power goes out, having a UPS generator system in place can help
prevent serious issues with your electrical appliances, lights, and electronic
Understanding the Difference Between UPS Systems & Generators
A UPS system senses when the main power supply to your home or business
has been interrupted, and automatically kicks in so there is a continuous
steam of electricity. However, it runs on batteries, so it only functions
for a limited amount of time. UPS systems are designed to provide a few
minutes of power so you can turn off necessary appliances and electrical
equipment to save your data. Once the battery in the system runs out,
the power will shut off.
Standard backup generators provide a consistent power supply to your building
in the case of a power outage. Because the majority of power interruptions
last only a few seconds, having a UPS generator system of 5-10 minutes
often provides enough time to ride out the power outage and shut down
everything you need to. However, having a standby generator is also important
to provide a consistent power source for a longer outage. Thus, UPS generator
systems provide a short amount of uninterrupted power so you can close
out necessary electronics and equipment, while standard generators act
as a power source to keep your home or business running for a longer amount of time.
Benefits of a UPS Generator System
Going without power is very inconvenient. However, with a UPS generator
system, you will have enough time to turn off computers, appliances, and
other electronics to prevent data loss. With a UPS generator in place,
you can have peace of mind knowing you are protected in case of a power outage.
