Generators and UPS Systems what are they?
Both Generators and UPS (uninterrupted Power Supply) units are back up systems in the event of a electrical power failure. They may be small and just for critical equipment or larger and power a Data Centre or a whole building. UPS system and Generators for larger building work together with the UPS holding the building power until the Generator is up to full speed and takes over the power supply.
Maintenance and Testing
Generators run of fuel and they need to be tested regularly to make sure they run and there is no fuel blockage, plus they need to be maintained (Oil changes Fuel filters etc). UPS systems have batteries as part of their make up which are continually charged again these need testing and regular maintenance to make sure that when they are needed they actually work.
The maintenance and testing all form part of a full facilities maintenance contract from Precise
