Backup Power Supply
What is the Backup Power Supply?The backup power supply is essentially considered as a part of the uninterruptible power system (UPS). As its name already implies, a backup power supply ensures no power cut during the operation of an important system. The backup power source does not operate until the main power grid outage while the backup power supply switches back up the power source instantly. Furthermore, when the main power source is stable, the backup power supply provides reliable power to your system and charges back up the power source at the same time.
Either way, with the implementation of the backup power supply, the power unit is able to provide a constant and reliable power source. However, a backup power source is not expected to supply power permanently. It only gives you a window to back up data and restore the main power source. ACRO backup power supply comes with an alarm that can update the real-time status of the power source to monitor the system.
Why is it Important?A power outage is unpredictable in any case and an ACRO backup power supply is crucial to prevent this disaster happen to your system. The blackout affects our life in many aspects. Imagine an ICU patient relying on an oxygen concentrator to breathe smoothly but power failure suddenly happens. This may not only worsen the patient’s condition but also put the patient’s life in danger.
Taking another real case from customer: Jeff runs a factory and the product lines are working on multiple batches, but the power was cut and all productions had to hold. This accident left him with enormous financial loss due to the de-commit deadline of delivery. If you want to avoid such circumstances and we believe in most cases you do, the ACRO backup power supply comes in very handy to solve your problem.
How does it Work?
The working principle of the backup power supply is quite simple. The power supply detects the voltage of the power source. When incoming power is below setting voltage, the power supply switches from the main power grid to the backup power source and continues to supply power to the target device. As the stability output from the main power grid is retrieved, the backup power supply switches back to the main power source automatically and replenishes power to back up the battery.
What capacity do I Need?The answer to this question genuinely has to do with the device that attaches to the power system. Generally speaking, the backup unit should be capable of taking the full capacity of the load. Yet, we always recommend that you should choose a unit that has a capacity of at least twenty-five percent higher than the power your device consumes.
How Long does it Last?The lifespan of the backup unit is crucial because we do not want it out of service when we are in need urgently. The condition of the battery, the capacitor, and the cooling system plays key roles in the service life of the backup supply unit. These components need to be maintained/replaced periodically to guarantee the full functionality of the power system.
Usually, these components can last more than five years, or more than a decade with a good storage environment (humidity, temperature, etc.). It is best to consult your system integrator for more information. Contact Acro right now to consult the technical issue of backup power supply and its stock
