Selecting and designing a Uninterruptible Power Supply UPS
Determine the general need for an Uninterruptible Power Supply UPS: Determining the need for an UPS is mainly a matter of
evaluating the way in which a facility is used, as well as knowing whether local, state, or federal
laws mandate the incorporation of an UPS. The number of regulations mandating an alternate
power source to ensure safety of personnel and to prevent pollution of the environment continues
to increase. Consequently, enforcement agencies should be consulted to determine if an Uninterruptible Power Supply UPS is mandated. They should also be consulted during design and installation to make sure that the UPS is designed and installed in accordance with current applicable regulations.
