Determining the right UPS size?

Choose a UPS based on device power consumption and desired backup duration; higher capacity models offer longer backup times, detailed on product pages.

The Efficiency Ratio

In UPS systems, VA exceeds wattage, indicating the 'efficiency ratio' (e.g., 0.8 or 80%). Select a UPS with Output Watt Capacity 20-25% above your devices' total power consumption for optimal performance.

UPS Runtime: Matching Load and Duration

For UPS selection, consider backup duration, which decreases with higher device power usage. Opt for a higher capacity UPS for longer needs and check product pages for estimated backup times.

Frequently Asked Questions

A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) provides guaranteed power protection for connected electronics. In case of power interruptions or fluctuations, it offers clean battery backup power and surge protection for sensitive equipment.

UPS systems safeguard electronic devices like computers, networking equipment, TVs, and gaming consoles against damage from blackouts, voltage fluctuations, and other power disruptions.

Consider the maximum watt and VA (volt-ampere) ratings of your devices. The UPS capacity should not be exceeded by these ratings. Watts measure actual power usage, while VA represents potential power.

For UPS and computers, watt and VA ratings can significantly differ. The power factor, the ratio of watts to VA, is crucial in UPS sizing. Typically, choose a UPS with an Output Watt Capacity 20-25% higher than the total power drawn by attached equipment.

Runtime varies based on the equipment's power consumption. More connected devices mean less runtime, so it's important to provide backup power only to essential equipment.

Features vary from basic (like user-replaceable batteries and surge-only outlets) to advanced (such as adjustable voltage transfer points and intelligent battery management). Choose based on your specific power protection needs.

UPS systems protect against issues from the commercial power grid, including weather-related damage like lightning, snow, and flooding, as well as equipment failure and accidents.
