An uninterruptible power supply is a machine that provides emergency power to a load when the main power source fails. UPS systems provide uninterruptible protection from input power interruptions. A UPS is used to protect valuable hardware including computer systems, data centers, telecom equipment and other critical power components.

Tech Connect provides equipment and service for a complete line of UPS systems. As an industry leader in the Utah area, we provide a range of cutting-edge power solutions for data centers, manufacturing plants, hospitals and more. Our solutions range from 1kVA to over 1 MegaWatt and can provide any desired runtime. We can provide the correct UPS solution for any situation. We do this by helping each customer know their critical power needs through site surveys, power presentations and personalized site One-Lines. By doing so, we help eliminate single points of failure, overlooked equipment and provide complete site solutions.

We not only help you create the perfect solution for your company but support you after it has been installed. To keep your UPS running optimally, routine preventative maintenance from an experienced technician is necessary. During every preventative maintenance visit, a technician will check input and output loads, examine individual battery readings, and provide recommendations to ensure uptime. This provides you trackable data and updated reccommendations before emergencies occur.

A device that provides battery backup when the electrical power fails or drops to an unacceptable voltage level. Small UPS systems provide power for a few minutes; enough to power down the computer in an orderly manner, while larger systems might have enough battery for several hours for data centers, call centers and hospital or factory equipment.

The UPS is used to protect critical loads from power problems, including spikes, voltage dips, fluctuations and complete power failures using a dedicated battery. If you can’t afford to lose time or power, you can't afford not to have a UPS.

In order to keep your Uninterruptible Power Supply in optimal shape, you need to care for it as you would anything else of value. Critical power equipment needs routine maintenance inspections to ensure all components are operating at full capacity, especially the batteries! Routine inspections can ensure reliability and extend the life of your UPS equipment.

A Maintenance Bypass Switch allows you to bypass your UPS in an emergency or for maintenance. Many companies hate to be down for even 1 min and request to put in solutions that will avoid downtime. The X-Switch is a make-before-break solution that ensures safety and a way to bypass the UPS correctly. Please contact one of our sales engineers to find out more information.

Most large UPS systems are designed to replace the Fans and Capacitors around 10 years of use. Small UPS systems are usually replaced before this timeframe. Please contact one of our sales engineers to find out more information.

When a battery has failed “open cell,” it has failed in way that it will no longer allow electrical current to flow through it. There are typically ~40 batteries installed with a UPS. These batteries are connected in series and not for redundancy. One open cell battery will leave the entire battery bank useless and will drop your critical load. Please contact one of our sales engineers to find out more information.

Most customers require at least twice a year, and some prefer 4 times a year. Many things can happen quickly to a UPS and batteries if they are ignored. Scheduled preventative maintenance visits help solve problems long before they become emergencies. Often a small problem going unchecked can become an emergency down the road.
