When mains power goes off in a black-out scenario or a drop in power (brown-out) orother enviornmental factors that can cause a disturbance, the Standby Power system will operate either from stored power usually within lead-acid UPS batteries installed within an uninterruptible power supply or by generated power from a generator or a combination of both as an integrated hybrid system where the UPS operates until the generator is up to speed.
The Standby Power systems are used to support mainstream IT and communications infrastructures from the home office to the International Data Centre.
A loss of power, even momentarily, will cause IT systems and sensitive equipment to crash, turn off, lose data and can cause damage to components which will cost to be repaired. A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) maintains power by switching instantaneously to batteries in the event of a power failure, or even just a dip in power (a brown-out). They also condition the power supply to reduce unwanted spikes and harmonics. They are designed to correct a variety of power problems.
