Why use a UPS:

Load shedding is currently part of our reality in South Africa, your computer & Point of Sales equipment is subject to numerous power disturbances, from surges, which can cause hardware damage and blackouts, which can cause data loss.

An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a necessary part of your computer system, because you never know when power disturbances will occur. In such an event, UPS devices will automatically switch your computer to battery back-up power, allowing you to work through brief disturbances or shut down your system during prolonged cuts.

In case you need back-up power for more than one computer and are unsure what size UPS to acquire, apply this simple formula: divide the UPS capacity in VAs with 350 for each system with 14" monitor. Thus, a 1000-5000 VA UPS will provide back-up for: 1000 divided by 350 = two to three computers with 14" monitors. (There is no allowance for printers, scanners and other "extras" in this formula!)

Since monitors devour power, every extra inch of monitor size will significantly increase your UPS capacity needs!

The 1000 UPS is a backup power system for handling larger loads. The range is an advanced line interactive uninterruptible power system which is designed to prevent any spikes, sags and blackouts from reaching your sensitive equipment, ranging from computers and telecommunication systems to computerized instruments. Under normal power conditions the UPS filters out all small fluctuations.
