The 5 biggest mistakes made when ordering a UPS

The 5 biggest mistakes made when ordering a UPS

1.       Not knowing their load- If the load is not known, it’s like buying a Ute and not knowing what payload needs to be carried

2.       Not knowing what battery time is needed- this is determined by the load requirements

3.       What format and weight of UPS- UPS com in rack mounted or floor standing units and are primarily manufactured from copper and lead.

4.       Power to supply UPS- in most cases when one big UPS needs to supply critical equipment, the load needs to come from one adequate supply.

5.       No budget set aside for electrical work- When supplying a UPS that cannot be plugged into a 10A GPO, the UPS need to be wired in by a qualified electrician.
