AC Power Backup/Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

AC power backup, also known as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), is a cost-effective power protection solution with minimal maintenance needs. The products below are designed to provide intelligent power management that integrates seamlessly into your operations. All AC power backup products sold by HM Cragg are built with efficiency in mind, keeping your operations moving during unexpected power outages or voltage drops.

AC Power Backup Types

There are different types of AC power backup products, and each serves a unique purpose for organizations. From smaller backup solutions that will keep a single computer up and running to more robust systems that are designed to keep large equipment operational for extended time periods, you can find the exact system you need from HM Cragg.

The three main types of AC backup power systems are:

  • Standby: Only becomes active in the event of a primary power failure.
  • Line-interactive: Provides superior power supply filtering compared to standby options. The battery and inverter are always connected to the power output and will change the electrical flow in the event of an outage.
  • Double conversion: Seamless, always online so no transfer or switching in power output is necessary during disruptions.

Uninterruptible Power Supply Advantages

Any industry that depends on a continuous supply of power to keep computer systems, appliances and mission-critical equipment up and running will benefit from a capable AC power backup. Not only can a power backup product protect against outages, it can also account for voltage fluctuations. Energy surges, spikes and dips can lead to equipment damage that’s even more costly than downtime. The world depends on continuous power more than ever before, so UPS systems add predictability for avoidable disruptions.

Some of the most commonly cited reasons for using UPS equipment include:

  • Continuity: Protecting essential equipment against power disruptions
  • Protection: Protecting against power fluctuations that can lead to costly damage
  • Refinement: Serving as a filter that refines the power before it reaches electronic systems

At HM Cragg, we’re by your side to help you maximize continuity, no matter your industry. Get in touch to see how we can help you make the future a little less uncertain.
