-> Protection Against Power Outages
In most businesses today, there is no alternative to using the computer. If your computer goes down, you can't work at all. If there is a power outage and you do not have adequate protection, your hard drive may become physically damaged. Because the hard drive is made of moving parts, if the power is cut while the hard drive is writing data, there is a good chance the read and write heads will collide, thus damaging the disk and causing data loss.
An Uninterruptable Power Supply or UPS is a battery-based power supply that connects to your computer and protects your hard drive in the event of a power outage. When your computer is connected to a UPS, the computer will automatically switch over to the UPS battery whenever there is a power outage. In addition, you can plug accessories such as lights and phones into the UPS so that they will also be available to you.
How It Works
|(1) Connect The Computer's Power Supply to the UPS||(2) Connect The UPS into the Wall Outlet||(3) If the power fails, the UPS detects an outage and switches over to the battery power supply.|
How Is A UPS Rated?
UPS Systems are rated by VA (Volts and Amps). The higher the VA, the longer a UPS will remain on in a power outage. Most UPS systems come with digarams for how long they will stay on with different configurations.
