The worries generated by the heavy rains of summer – possibility of floods, falls and failures in the electric power supply – are once again part of the lives of millions of people some time ever year, mainly in regions, where rains tend to be more intense.
Part of these problems, especially in large cities, could be reduced by investing in energy supply solutions such as generators and the use of uninterruptible power supply (เครื่องสำรองไฟ, which is the term in Thai) has proven to be an efficient, cost-effective investment compared to other systems on the market for most residential, commercial and industrial applications.
The use of UPS in residential and commercial places, besides guaranteeing the continuity of the services, preserves the physical and patrimonial security. Managers of building access control, for example, are constantly seeking solutions that offer greater security for their users. But they are automated systems that depend solely and exclusively on energy to function.
That is alarms, electronic porters, access turnstiles, gates, security cameras electronic gates, and so many other technologies involved in physical security and patrimonial like electric fences, infrared sensors or even fire detection systems, need the energy to operate.
Similarly, a blackout can cause unrecoverable losses to a company, such as data compromise, as well as significant losses in activities whose operation can not be interrupted.
However, the UPS should not only be seen as a guarantor of uninterrupted operation, but above all as a provider of clean and vibration-free power, which are very common in commercial networks and which damage equipment or significantly shorten the service life of other electronic devices.
Hospitals and emergency services are also among the mission-critical activities that require uninterrupted power. Absences or sudden drops in power can put dozens of lives at risk, as well as damaging equipment and reducing the life of electronic components, causing even greater damage.
