Protect your Critical Equipment in your Data Centre with a UPS installation!
Data centre applications require reliable power sources.
No Backup Power
One of the most surprising things about such an advanced facility is that it will have no backup power source, no power generator and no batteries. If commercial power to the facility goes out, all data in transit will be lost.
How often should a UPS be serviced?
A strong, comprehensive service plan should cover all of the following: UPS electronic parts and labour coverage: This covers UPS’s basic electrical components, excluding the battery. UPS battery parts and labour coverage: To prevent UPS failure, batteries should be replaced at least every five years.
What is the average lifespan of UPS batteries?
The standard lifespan for VRLA batteries is three to five years; for wet-cell batteries, it is up to 20 years. However, expected life can vary greatly due to environmental conditions, number and depth of discharge cycles, and adequate maintenance.
What is the key to UPS System Maintenance?
Make a Schedule (and Keep to It) This might seem obvious, but given all the demands of day-to-day data centre operations, it’s easy to take things like backup systems for granted.
Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems are a critical component of data centre backup power. Their purpose is to maintain the infrastructure until consistent power returns, or if needed, until longer-term emergency power backup systems kick in. They also suppress power surges, so they don’t damage equipment.
Temperature is the foremost environmental threat to computer equipment. Countless amounts of servers become damaged due to improper thermal management. The air around your servers needs to be maintained in the range of20° to 24°C for optimal reliability. Not only must you consider the heat produced by the servers, but you must also account for outside influences that will have an impact on the room’s temperature. It is always critical to have visibility on the temperature of your server room or data centre.
Finding the right company for your UPS installation and maintenance is key, protect your Data.
