Why is power becoming less reliable?

The demand for electricity is unlikely to reduce for as long as the population continues to grow. This means that each year, greater demands are placed on the energy grid and it is increasingly becoming unable to cope! Sungard Availability Services states that buildings across England and Wales have experienced approximately 4.9 million planned and 96 million unplanned power interruptions over the past 5 years. Time to think of implementing an uninterruptable power supply?

What are the costs of power outages to your business?

How will my business potentially be affected? According to National statistics, a single hour of downtime is said to cost a small business an average of £800 and a large commercial organisation £8,500. The effects of a power outage on a business can include:

Imagine if you had loss of power for a day!

What are the different types of UPS?

Be stress free. DCR can supply a range of high efficiency single and 3 – phase UPS systems for
small and medium businesses to protect your PC’s critical IT servers and equipment. Single-phase UPS range from 200VA up to 20kVA to support anything from a single computer to protecting your server rooms or IT networks.

For a higher level of protection, a UPS system using true online double conversion technology is available. Online UPS systems have the ability to withstand large variations in input voltage whilst still maintaining a clean sinusoidal output voltage before restoring to using backup UPS battery power.

Line interactive and off-line UPS systems offer a lower cost solution usually with automatic voltage regulation (AVR) for regulation output.

Fitting the right UPS systems will help reduce damage to electrical equipment extending life and reducing costs in the long run. Whatever your needs, DCR has over 25 years’ experience and will develop a tailored solution, including installation and UPS maintenance, giving you complete peace of mind.
