UPS systems necessary for businesses – company

Downtime can be costly for any business, especially for growing ones that need to be operational around the clock. Power management company Eaton’s uninterruptable power supply (UPS) systems are renowned for reliability, with a proven track record of providing UPS to critical systems.

With Eaton UPS systems, businesses can be confident that their systems will remain up and running even during power outages.

“Eaton's electrical division is a global leader in power distribution and circuit protection, backup power protection and control and automation,” says the company.

“Businesses prefer the scalability of Eaton UPS systems because it allows them to grow their power infrastructure as demands change. Scalability refers to a UPS system's ability to expand in capacity and performance to suit the evolving needs of a business.”

Eaton UPS systems achieve scalability in part by providing configurable flexibility.

Eaton provides a variety of UPS types with varied capacities that may be integrated into an existing system. This modular method allows organisations to grow their systems without having to replace the entire system, thereby saving time and money.

Certain Eaton UPS types, for instance, can be configured in parallel to improve capacity and redundancy. The parallel setup enables multiple UPS units to work in tandem to sustain the load, offering greater capacity and minimising the risk of downtime in the event of a breakdown.

Wide Range of Form Factors

UPSs are available in a variety of form factors that fall into two broad categories: rack-mounted and freestanding. As the largest UPSs are not available in rack-mounted form factors, businesses with high power demands will employ freestanding units.

For smaller businesses, the choice between rack-mounted and freestanding UPSs is essentially a matter of data centre design philosophy.

Several businesses employ rack-mounted UPSs to consolidate as much gear as possible in its enclosures. Others choose to use standalone UPSs to optimise the amount of rack space available for servers. Technically and financially, neither method is fundamentally superior to the other, says Eaton.

Reliable and Efficient Solutions

Eaton's reliable and energy-efficient solutions lower energy costs and improve operations.

Its products and services reduce downtime, increase productivity, and improve efficiency and sustainability. Companies spend vast amounts of money on information technology infrastructure and the power that keeps it running.

“They anticipate that this investment will keep them be productive and competitive. It's a bad idea to leave that infrastructure vulnerable to electrical dips, surges and outages.”

A well-designed power protection solution that includes high-quality, high-efficiency UPS gear will help keep business applications running, power bills under control, and data safe, says Eaton.

Data centre operators can ensure that mission-critical systems always have the clean, stable electricity required to achieve long-term success by being familiar with the basics of what a UPS accomplishes and how to choose the proper power supply for demanded needs.

Remote Management

Businesses enjoy Eaton UPS systems' remote management feature because it enables them to monitor and manage power infrastructure from a central place.

This allows organisations to monitor UPS systems and respond quickly to concerns, decreasing the chance of downtime and enhancing system performance overall.

Eaton provides a variety of remote management alternatives for its UPS systems, including Web-based interfaces, Simple Network Management Protocol, and power management software.

These solutions enable organisations to monitor UPS systems in real-time, view performance data and receive alerts when problems develop. Additionally, businesses can use these tools to remotely perform diagnostics, execute tests, and modify settings, minimising the need for onsite visits.

A fundamental benefit of remote management is that it enables businesses to respond swiftly to problems even when they are not physically present at the site with Eaton's Intelligent Power Manager (IPM).

It serves as a centralised control point for power infrastructure, enabling the management of multiple devices through a single interface.

“IPM can be used to monitor the status of power devices, such as UPSs, Power Distribution Units, and environmental sensors, in real-time. Automated alerts can be used for events like power outages, battery failures, or high-temperature readings, enabling responses to potential problems quickly.”

Energy Efficiency

Eaton UPS systems are highly regarded by businesses owing to its energy efficiency, which allows the company to lessen its environmental impact and save money on utility bills.

Eaton's UPS systems incorporate a number of algorithms for the monitoring, testing, and charging of batteries in order to maximise battery performance and life.

Eaton UPS systems reduce the amount of waste produced and the number of carbon footprints left behind by increasing the lifespan of batteries and the amount of time that passes between battery replacements, says Eaton.

Energy efficiency is a critical feature of Eaton UPS systems that enables businesses to reduce energy consumption, operating costs and environmental impact.

Using advanced technology, energy-saving features, and battery management technology, Eaton UPS systems deliver maximum power protection while using the least energy possible.

Additionally, by providing administrators with real-time performance data and energy-saving recommendations, Eaton UPS systems enable businesses to optimise energy efficiency quickly and effectively.
