UPS batteries are used uninterrupted power supply that provides power back up during the loss of Alternative current supply. It is UPS battery that decides total output of the UPS unit. As a matter of personal choice, UPS batteries are of different types, sizes, and depend upon the cost and configuration.
Lets us check out the benefits of UPS batteries:
Choose the size that suite to your budget : When it comes to UPS batteries they are broadly divided into two categories as the long-duration batteries and the short duration batteries. Mostly UPS batteries are configured as the customer demands and every model is designed with specific purposes. Suppose if your city witness 4 hours power cut in day or at a regular stretch then you may look forward to 200 ampere batteries consisting thicker plates. However if you go for thinner plates the same 200 ampere battery will give 15 minutes back up. Thicker plates can sustain battery for a longer time but makes it a little bulkier; alternatively the short- duration batteries are lighter but give a short power supply. As a conscious buyer you must not go with ratings of ampere as they may misguide you. In comparison to other batteries, Nickel cadmium battery gives a high power density along with good commercial returns.
It keeps the power sensitive gadget safe: UPS batteries give the surge protection to power sensitive gadgets. The bad electricity such as line noises, power fluctuation etc. are blocked are by UPS inverter, hence UPS battery only receives good power and nourishes your gadgets like LCD TV, computer at par.
Uninterrupted power supply: As the name suggests UPS gives uninterrupted power supply during the brownouts and black out. So with UPS you are not going to lose the game in between. You can easily finish your task and safely turn off your gadget.
Types of UPS
When it comes to the types of UPS, broadly speaking there are three types of UPS
- Offline standby
- Online UPS
- Line interactive
While reviewing all these three types of UPS, offline standby UPS is powerful and cost effective. The best part of this UPS is that until UPS is connected to the power grid, it gives protection from all bad supply of the power. However, it does not provide line protection and somehow battery often gets activated when there is a power fluctuation. Whereas the online UPS conditions the flow of electricity from battery to the gadget as there is no space between the power outage and UPS start-up. Line interactive lies somewhere between the above two choices as it provides both UPS conditioning as well as protection from the bad power supply.
