Standby UPS protect against AC blackouts, Power Sags & Voltage Surges. The Standby UPS keeps connected equipment connected to commercial power. In the event of power loss, the UPS’ internal battery will engage supplying electrical power to connected equipment. This low cost UPS provides basic protection and will reduce equipment downtime. Standby UPS are most commonly used to protect ATM/Kiosk, IP telephony, and POS terminals.
Standby UPS Process
- During regular operation electrical power routes directly to the spike and surge filter and then to connected equipment.
- The Control-Alarm Circuits will monitor the battery charge status and will send power to the battery charger when required.
- The Control/Alarm circuit also monitors incoming line power. If the power fails, battery backup power is instantaneously engaged.
