Uninterruptible Power Solutions are often solved
at the facility level with unnecessarily large,
inefficient, expensive and complex AC UPS
systems. While this provides an easy demarcation
line between the facility and end equipment, with
each focusing on a different part of the problem,
it also results in overall operating efficiency and
total cost of ownership being difficult to ascertain
and optimize. Initial and operating costs can
generally be reduced and system reliability
increased by incorporating a relatively simple DC
UPS as an integral part of the data processing or
communication equipment.
