Power is the basic need for every business everywhere. You need power in your home, at work, on the roads, in our schools and all of our public works. And increasingly we have needs that are 24/7 – particularly in the industrial world. To counter any downtime, we invented backup power supply sources like generators, inverters and of course – UPS.
As industrial businesses use the most power they therefore consume the most power supply. They need significant punching power when it comes to operating at all times – and their backup needs to pack a similar wallop.
That being said, you do need to thread more of a needle when it comes to purchasing an industrial UPS system other than just getting something with a ton of power. You need to make sure there aren’t large power fluctuations because they may damage the machines in your shop. So if the power went out, not only are you looking at cost in terms of downtime, but you’re also looking at repair costs associated with damaged machinery. As such, scrimping or trying to compromise too much with your backup solution isn’t something that’s going to be in the cards.
Here’s a quick checklist of things we recommend every industrial business owner take into account when choosing their industrial UPS:
- Calculate all power backup time and load
- Research a best in class product provider
- Do your homework and ask questions – lean on your service professional
You know what you know and you don’t know what you don’t know – and taking the time to research what your industry’s best practices are and who might be able to best meet your needs is going to be important. Second, we implore you to listen to your service professionals. Especially when it comes to industrial UPS – there’s a lot to lose – so make sure that you’re leaning back on the expertise of the professionals you seek out.
