Power Protection for critical systems. Power Protection for computer networks and security systems for complete power continuity. When mains electrical power fails these Power problems cause voice and data processing errors, hardware server damage and expensive downtime. Without Power Protection systems your computer networks will crash.
Power protection systems for computer networks and security systems for complete Power Continuity installed and maintained by PowerContinuity. Keep running when the Grid supply fails. And the Grid will fail on you soon.
Our engineering team can completely design, supply, install and maintain a state of the art Power Protection 24-7 system for your site. Each design and build can be viewed as a 3D model utilising the most cost effective space for UPS power systems and Emergency Standby power generators.

Power Protection System
Power Protection Systems will provide an active Disaster Recovery System. For this you will require:-
- Standby Generators with on-board fuel tank as well as a 24 hour additional tanks
- Centralised UPS system combo – for short term seamless power protection while the generator starts up and provides total power to replace the mains failed supply.
- Automatic Mains Fail power transfer panel (AMF) to switch the power from mains to auxiliary automatically
- Self-contained Air Con System
- The DR room in a part of the building away from potential risks. Solid brick walls and a concrete ceiling
- Keypad entry via solid fire-rated door
This allows your Critical Kit to have a full power protection system, whatever happens to the mains supply your covered.
Then you seriously need to look at an N+1 installation
What’s N+1 Power Protection?
N+1 is a UPS in parallel with a same size and model UPS.
For example a 10kVA UPS with 20 minutes battery backup and a second 10 kVA for with 20 minutes battery backup.
N+1 Power Protection Configuration Explanation
The reason why?
A UPS is built to withstand the ravines and fluctuations of the dirty power from the National Grid. Being full of complex parts, of course failure of a part can happen. When this occurs the UPS would go into internal bypass or at worst could turn itself off. Although rare, components can fail. If your system is mission critical then in an N+1 situation the second parallel UPS would seamless take over and continue to protection your power.
What if the power outage were to last longer than the battery time of my UPS?
Your system will require an automatic Standby Generator with 12 hour fuel tank as well as an optional 24 hour external tank.
Is having a Standby Generator an N+1 power protection solution?
No. Again N+1 would require a parallel Standby Generator system of two equal size and model generators, in the event of one of the generators failing to start. This could happen due to vandalism, component failure, lack of fuel, etc. N+1 would require two standby generators of the same size and model fully synchronised so that, in the event of an issue which one of them, the second continues to support the load without failure.
That’s fine but I need even Greater Protection for our Mission Critical System. What can I do that will make our Systems virtually impossible to fail?
The next step after installing an N+1 UPS and Generator Power Protection system to upgrade to a 100% Disaster Recovery system would be to have a second remote location at least 10 miles away.
This would be mirrored with your main Disaster Recovery Site
Located at least 10-20 miles away from your existing DR site
Total Resilience for the ultimate power protection
PowerContinuity can provide N+1 , N+2 , N+3 or even N+4 total resilience into any DR system. We design, supply, install and maintain Disaster Recovery Systems throughout the UK.
