One thing is for certain -- you can avoid a major electrical blackout with a temporary emergency power system. Your business should have an industrial generator designed to assist you in a time of emergency. But if the quality of the generator is poor, then you could be in trouble.
During a power outage, there is a lag of several seconds while a generator boots up. If the generator isn’t of high quality, it may not even turn on at all. You must make sure that your emergency power generation system can provide long-term power protection and not take the term “temporary” too literal.
In comes a UPS, an on-line uninterruptible power system that adds an essential extra layer of protection to your emergency power generator. When utility power isn’t present, the on-line UPS uses a no-break battery back-up. This produces an input power factor correction that reduces any harm that may come to the generator’s operating equipment.
