Which Technology is right for you?
As stated above there are a wide variety of UPS topologies, but deciding which technology is right can be a difficult task.
It’s interesting that sales globally are falling for the more basic technologies, i.e. off-line and line interactive as many desk top users are now benefiting from advances in Lap Top computers which don’t require any additional battery support, however sales for single and three phase On-Line UPS technology is growing at about 8% per annum, why?
On-Line UPS technology is better suited to the server and data centre environment, offering regulated sine wave output, efficiency almost comparable with Line-Interactive, tightly regulated output, low reflected input harmonics; and because of advances in power switch devices, much better pricing! In fact On-Line UPS are now reaching price parity with most Line-Interactive alternatives but offering much higher performance levels.
Applications for Off-Line and Line Interactive UPS have slowly been changing, for server applications these technologies are falling out of favour mainly because of the transfer time, typically 10m/s and poor mains regulation which for modern computer applications is an unnecessary risk. But for applications where a small break in power is not so much of a problem, such as tills, electric doors, lighting, CCTV, alarms, routers etc., these more basic UPS can offer a low cost solution.
Line Interactive and Off Line UPS have a very real role to play in the Uninterruptible Power Supply market, offering low cost, data connectivity and often with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) for a regulated output.
The technology of the B50 and B100 UPS is better suited to market sectors where an On-Line UPS might be considered overkill, this would include work stations and standalone PC’s, electronic tills, electric doors, CCTV, access control, ticket machines and other similar applications.
Online Double Conversion
A UPS System using true online double conversion technology provides the highest level of power protection available. The UPS converts the 230V input AC mains supply to DC power which is then used to charge the battery. The DC voltage is then fed through an inverter stage which reconstructs the 230V AC mains output. This results in a supply that will be completely free from any mains born interference such as spikes and voltage variations.
Online UPS are able to withstand large fluctuations on the input voltage before transferring to battery power thus eliminating unnecessary battery discharges. Upon mains failure transfer to battery power is seamless with no break to your power supply.
