Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS)

UPS provide continuation of power for energy consumers. These systems are typically deployed in data centres, telecommunications companies, hospitals and other emergency services sectors where power outages or a dip in power can have detrimental and/or costly consequences.

UPS provide continuation of power for energy consumers. These systems are typically deployed in data centres, telecommunications companies, hospitals and other emergency services sectors where power outages or a dip in power can have detrimental and/or costly consequences. In service critical environments, back-up power sources are usually connected to the grid and electrical generators that will automatically start in the event of a power cut.

In all these systems, there will be a short interruption of power that could cause significant damage to systems. The on-battery run-time of most UPS sources is relatively short but sufficient enough to start up a backup generator to bridge the gap in power supply, or properly shut down electrical equipment that requires protection.

For 2-hour load shedding power outages, UPS with enhanced battery charging capabilities are required as well as large battery banks. While traditional UPS batteries were not designed for frequent cycling, solar batteries are more suitable in such a case.

Rentech offers a range of UPS and batteries for UPS. This includes lead-acid batteries from 7.2Ah up to a range of lead-carbon batteries from 100 Ah up to 250 Ah. These batteries have a long cycle of life and excellent deep cycle ability. They also provide an impressive charge acceptance ability and reliable performance under both hot and cold conditions. Rentech also provides traditional high rate (HR) AGM and GEL UPS batteries and front terminal batteries for larger UPS and data centres, as well as custom lithium-ion battery systems for high voltage and high power UPS.
