How many of us know that option B is necessary even if you have an excellent plan A. It is because everything around us had some percent of uncertainty and nobody wants to lag due to the uncertainty. This is one reason why we have power backup systems as well. The power backup systems provide power to the computer and other electrical devices that have blacked out due to technical issues.
What is UPS and its function:
Anuninterruptible power supply (UPS) (เครื่องสำรองไฟ ups, which is the term in Thai) is used to keep the computer running at all times. The battery charger continuously produces DC power, which the inverter continuously turns back into 120-volt AC power. Depending upon the size of the device it is providing power to the UPS lasts from a few minutes to a few hours.
About its components:
The UPS has four main components: rectifier, battery, inverter and bypass switch. The rectifier converts the incoming Alternative Current (AC) power to Direct Current (DC) electricity. The rectifier is quite important as it handles all the wide power fluctuations. Without engaging the UPS batteries during a power event.
Battery set up:
Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) uses rechargeable batteries and can be installed in any orientation. As it does not produce any hazardous gases, etc. The use is inverter is to take DC from the DC bus under normal operation or battery during a power outrage and convert it back to AC.
What is the static bypass switch?
Static Bypass switch automatically closed the circuit when the internal system fails. Thus, diverting the incoming AC power around the rectifier, batteries and the inverter to provide continuous power to the equipment. The server power supply (เครื่องสำรองไฟ server, term in Thai) continues to the target electronic devices, keeping them working while the UPS can be repaired or replaced.
While the server power supply is used to convert AC power to DC power that can be distributed to various components in a server. Many people choose to have UPS to handle the potential demand peaks.
Having 2power supplies for your server is a way to reduce the cost caused due to power loss. The power loss can cause harm to the electronic devices. Another reason is that you can run the circuit with one source. So, if something breaks one circuit your server would still be running.
Also, the server power supply provides cooling for the computer. The power supply’s fan circulates air throughout the computer. It does the work of air ventilation much needed for computers as it produces extreme heat at times of higher load.
