UPS Battery Backups
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) battery backup allows you to save your data, avoid downtime, and protect your electronic equipment during a power outage. Since they provide consistent power to your electronic devices, battery backups are the best way to protect your business from unexpected blackouts and brownouts. Learn more about how Tie National can protect your business with a UPS battery backup.
Use a Battery Backup for Computers
Most modern businesses rely heavily on computers and other electronics. However, without a battery backup for computers, your business could lose important data if there’s a sudden power outage. You could lose all of your unsaved information in a flash, and it could take hours to recover or recreate that information, which is time that could be better spent working on different tasks.
Luckily, you can avoid that situation by using a UPS battery backup for your computers. These backups can provide you with some peace of mind knowing that your sensitive data will remain protected in the event of a power disruption. The battery backup acts as an additional power supply, providing enough energy to keep your computers running during an outage. Depending on your needs, these backup batteries can provide a few minutes of additional power or can keep your power running until the power outage is fixed. This gives you time to save your data and safely shut off electronic devices that might be damaged by sudden power surges.
At Tie National, our UPS battery backups will provide your business with a reliable backup power source that is designed to protect both your data and your equipment. Our selection of battery backups can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your business, regardless of its size, so you can rest assured that you’ll always be protected from sudden power outages.
Brownout vs Blackout
It’s important to note the difference between a brownout and a blackout. A brownout is when the voltage drops so low that electrical devices are affected, but power remains on. This could result in computers crashing or other devices malfunctioning. In contrast, a blackout occurs when there is no power at all. This can be devastating for businesses that don’t have a battery backup, as all of their data and equipment will be at risk.
A brownout is caused by a utility company lowering the electricity supply to certain areas to prevent a blackout. This happens when the demand for electricity is nearing the power system’s capacity. The lower voltage levels from a brownout can damage electronic equipment, but using a UPS battery backup will stop that effect.
A blackout happens when all electrical power is shut off in a large area, usually caused by a storm or equipment failure. A smaller-scale event is called a power outage, which occurs when there’s an issue with the transformer. These interruptions can be catastrophic for businesses that use electricity, especially those that manage big data sets or have production lines. A UPS battery backup is essential to protecting your electronics and data in the event of a blackout or power outage.

Keep Your Business Running Smoothly With a UPS Backup Battery
Your business and business needs are unique, so your UPS battery backup and loss prevention needs are also unique. Here’s how to decide what type of UPS system your network needs:
Make sure to buy a UPS with sufficient capacity to handle the wattage of the devices you’ll plug into it, as well as enough battery runtime for safe shutdowns. Also account for how many plugs your UPS can accommodate.
To find the UPS capacity you need, simply multiply the wattage of every device by 1.25 (this is your load). Your load should never surpass 75%-80% of your UPS system’s capacity so that you have enough room for peaks in power usage. After finding out your capacity thresholds, make sure that your UPS battery backup has enough plugs for every device that needs a backup power source.
Keep in mind that a UPS system can never support its full capacity. The closer you get to the max limit, the shorter the battery runtime becomes. Consider how long it takes to safely shut down your devices when planning what capacity you need for this system. Some manufacturers also offer extended battery modules (EBMs) to extend total runtime if needed.
