Comms Room Maintenance will highlight issues before problems occurr. Let’s help you with preventative maintenance
For example what about the UPS System:-
UPS Batteries are the heart of any UPS Power System.
Care for the batteries and you eliminate one potential point of failure.
With any UPS system we would recommend having an N+1 UPS power system installed.
This allows for any potential battery weakness to only effect one of the UPS systems and allowing the other to hold and protect the load.If your site is critical then an N+1 UPS power system is the only sure way to prevent power loss.
Any UPS can fail and so can any battery. N+1 allows resilience and an N+2 system has even more resilience.

Here’s a quick check list:-
When was the Emergency Generator system checked?
When was the UPS Power System last checked and maintained?
When was the last time you had your UPS batteries checked?
Why do we even carry out regular UPS Battery Maintenance?
The reason — Batteries have a fixed working life.
They may be 5 or 10-year design life, although working conditions vary so much that, in reality, they never achieve this length of life. Sometimes they can be much shorter working life.
Reasons for a shortened Battery Life?:-
- High Incoming voltage
- Frequent Brown Outs
- Frequent Spikes
- Over Heating of the Battery Environment
- Lack of efficient AC
- No working AC
- Damp Environment
- Over loading of the UPS
- Imbalance of the UPS load across the phases
UPS Battery Replacement is inevitable
PowerContinuity can safely dispose of your existing batteries and replace them with brand new 5 or 10 year design life batteries with a 12 or 24 month or even 36 month replacement guarantee.
Emergency Generator Systems- Twice yearly inspection and maintenance
UPS Power Systems – Twice yearly inspection and maintenance
AC Systems- These need regular checks for bacteria as well as power efficiency
Fire Suppression Systems- Legal checks and inspections for your insurance policy
This is how the transformers inside a large UPS look like with an evenly balanced load.
