EQUIP YOURSELF WITH AN UPS BEFORE THE STORM COMES

More frequent and more severe storms mean that you definitely need to get a UPS device, from home users to huge industries.

We often hear meteorologists terms such as precipitation, snowfall, thunderstorms, blizzards, low pressure systems, hurricanes, typhoons, upheavals, thunderstorms, cyclones, etc. These are all atmospheric disturbances that distribute heat and produce some combination of extreme wind combined with precipitation. Storms feed on heat, which is actually why scientists think global warming is affecting both the frequency and intensity of storms. The more heat, the more vigorously the weather system can be dispersed.
Scientists have determined that Atlantic hurricanes are about 60% more powerful than in the past. Storms now last longer and their peak wind speeds have increased by about 25%. Rainfall totals from tropical cyclones in the North Atlantic have increased at a rate of 24% over a decade.

Precautions
Home and even business users had a lot to think about when the weather forecast turned nasty. More wind means broken or uprooted trees, which in turn can mean damaged power lines and blown power transformers. More water means an increased risk of flooding. And the lightning that accompanies rainstorms can cause damage to the electricity or lead to frequent surges that cause problems or permanent damage to electrical appliances or the installation. Tens of thousands of volts created by a lightning strike through power lines can reach your power grid and cause damage.

Regardless of the cause (wind, water or power surges), power outages expose the power grid to frustrating interruptions that result in interrupted access to online content and services or potential damage to the computer, tablet or mobile phone being charged.

Fortunately for them, home and business users can take steps to prevent these threats and limit the damage or inconvenience caused by storm-related chaos. Such devices are uninterruptible power supplies known as UPS. These are devices equipped with high intelligence and a battery that offers protection against lightning strikes, power drops and shutdowns, protecting your investment in computer and network equipment. The battery in the UPS provides uptime when the power to your house is out.

Today, UPSs have also developed as important enablers for home network remote control and availability. In fact, some UPS devices are capable of monitoring the network connection and automatically monitoring the power until a smart reboot of the modem or router. This means you don't need to be at home to physically turn off or reboot the "frozen" device. Additionally, smart plugs can be configured to provide surge only or battery backup and surge protection, extending battery backup only to the devices that need it (for example, if your cell phone battery is dead and you have no power, then you have the option to charge the phone through the UPS).

Preparing for storms doesn't have to be expensive or complicated. A wide range of available UPS solutions provide safe, reliable power, electrical equipment and data protection. For example, the APC Back-UPS® Pro family offers a power protection warranty for high-performance computer systems, routers/modems, external storage devices, game consoles and other electronics. Back-UPS Pro devices offer a high-efficiency charging system and automatic voltage regulator to help reduce energy consumption, ideal for professionals. For users who want security in the connected world, these types of products represent innovation, flexibility, security and energy efficiency, all rolled into one.
Апликациите може да бидат уникатни, на пример како уред кој делува како резервна копија за системи за видео надзор, па дури и за одржување на електричната енергија на електрична ограда во некој имот.
