Backup Power Supply

UPS’s supply back up battery power to PC’s, servers, network equipment, tills, scales and any other equipment that requires a stable electrical current. A UPS can supply power in the event of a complete power failure or supply protection in the event of a power surge or dip. When there is a power failure in the UPS will automatically take over and keep the equipment functioning thus preventing hardware damage, software corruption and down time.

Small UPS’s provide power for a few minutes to allow the equipment to be shut down correctly. Larger UPS’s have battery power for a few hours. Where it is essential for equipment to be operating constantly, a generator will be needed to supply power to the UPS to extend the Data Centre backup time indefinitely.

UPS Categories

On-line UPS (Parallel)

This is the highest level of battery backup protection available. Power is reconstructed by the inverter which is online 100% of the time, there is no transfer switching time and all variations in voltage are eliminated.

Line interactive UPS

Interacts with the AC power line to smooth out the waveforms and correct the rise and fall of voltage. When there is a power failure an inverter switches on and converts battery power into a simulated sine wave output. When power returns the inverter switches off and the battery is recharged.

Off-Line UPS

Draws current from an AC outlet and switches to battery instantly on detecting a power failure. When power returns the UPS switches back to AC power and the battery is recharged.


Generators guarantee that when the main power supply is interrupted, power is still available to run your business. They can be used independently, or combined with a UPS to ensure an uninterrupted power supply. This means financial loss can be kept to a minimum.

We supply a range of top quality makes at reasonable prices including: Volvo, Perkins, Cummins and others, depending on your requirements.

We also do all sizes from 5kva to over 700kva, whether they are for residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural use etc.

We can provide a full service and maintenance plan for the generator, to ensure maximum performance and longevity of the unit.

Our, in house developed, Axil monitoring unit can be installed to detect problems such as low fuel, faulty panels and many others, it can also be used to remotely start or stop the generator via sms. The notification sms’s can be sent to multiple personnel, however our company also receives all messages which allows us to monitor any problems and act accordingly.
