A power UPS or UPS is an electronic device or circuitry that changes direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).The input voltage, output voltage and frequency and overall power handling depend on the design of the specific device or circuitry. The UPS does not produce any power; the power is provided by the DC source.A power UPS can be entirely electronic or may be a combination of mechanical effects (such as a rotary apparatus) and electronic circuitry.
Choosing the right UPS and battery for your homes entirely depends on your power requirement , the VA rating that is required based on the power requirement and battery that is suitable for the UPS. Once you know the total requirement , picking the right product just becomes easier.
Some maintenance tips to ensure proper efficiency of the UPS:
Battery placement: Always use a well ventilated area for UPS installation. The UPS battery gets heated up during charging and operation. An airy place reduces the heating up of the battery.It also reduces the frequent water topping requirement.
Battery usage: After installation use battery on a regular basis. If the power cut does not occur, discharge the battery completely once every month and then recharge it.
Water level check: Check the water level of battery every two months. Ensure that the water level is maintained between the maximum and minimum water limit. Always top up the battery with distilled water. Do not use tap water or rainwater as it contains excess minerals and impurities which affect the life and performance of the battery.
Cleanliness: Always keep the surface and sides of battery clean and dust free. Use cotton cloth to clean these surfaces
