UPS Monitoring

Superior UPS and Monitoring Solutions by the PacB Group

During periods when a national electricity supplier experiences problems in providing an adequate amount of power to an area, region, or the entire country, words such as “generator”, “backup systems”, “batteries”. “inverters”, “emergency power”, and “uninterruptable power supply” (UPS) are frequently used by those in the know and others, who may be somewhat confused by these technologies and their functions.

Domestic and industrial electricity users – who are connected to the national grid – rely increasingly on generators to keep the lights on. The former installs compact petrol generators, whilst the latter utilise industrial diesel-powered units.

Both types of electricity consumers require a UPS to facilitate the seamless switchover from mains to generator and storage batteries. Smooth transition prevents problems occurring when sensitive equipment is in use. Monitoring the UPS’s function ensures that an alert is received, should any glitch occur.


Address and Avoid

Nevertheless, an unreliable electricity supply is not solely to blame. Power fluctuations and surges are also cause for concern when they occur, generally unexpectedly. However, UPS monitoring goes a long way to address and avoid such events.


Sensitive Technology

If or when vital processes are interrupted, resources, valuable time, and money are wasted. Essential equipment and technologies may break down or be damaged, possibly beyond repaid. In this era, when humans rely so extensively on precise, delicate technologies like electronic devices that are very sensitive to electricity fluctuations, measures should be put in place to allow essential processes and industrial scale production to continue without pause.


State-of-the-Art Solutions

The PacB Group offers sensible, state-of-the-art solutions to such challenges, which occur globally. Power interruptions, irrespective of causes, are by no means exclusive to the South-African landscape.
