Just imagine the chaos that a power failure would cause to your London business or household! You would lose heating, lighting, internet which at best would be an annoyance and at worst a security issue. With an uninterruptible power supply power cuts are a thing of the past.

Just as bad are power surges. These immediately burn out sensitive electronics. In business, this could mean loss of data, lost sales and the hassle of replacing expensive assets. An uninterruptible power supply takes care of these too!

You really need one!

sub-title: What is an uninterruptible power supply?

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a system installed to protect electrical equipment from power surges and failures. In simplest terms, a UPS system is a self-contained battery back-up to provide ancillary power to sensitive electronic equipment like computers, fax machines, modems etc ensuring they remain operational during power failures.

There are several different types of UPS available that can run from a few minutes to enable you to save data on a computer to systems that can power whole buildings for however long the power failure lasts. To find out which would be the most appropriate for you, talk to South London Electricians on 020 3199 8930

Sub-title: How does an uninterruptible power supply work?

Whilst the mains electricity flows, a basic UPS charges its internal batteries. At the moment of power failure, it links the batteries to an inverter and stabiliser which produces mains voltage electricity from the batteries. Switching occurs within a few milliseconds and so the devices connected to the UPS are unaffected. The output sockets are connected to the voltage stabiliser to protect from surges.

The more complex UPS systems run from their own generator which automatically kicks in when required and can power an entire building for as long as is required.
