Keep Your Building Management Systems on Track with UPS Battery Backup

January 27, 2020 Kavita Manral

Today, it is almost impossible to operate our daily lives without electricity. Even little things such as watches, or earphones depend on electricity. A world lacking the functions of electricity would present itself as a scary thought as pretty much everything depends on electricity, but yearly, a vast number of the industries are negatively affected by losses which are coaxed by instantaneous power variations. A substantial amount of resources is lost due to abrupt and unforeseen power cuts around the world, and the most impacted countries that hurt from these disruptions are the developing ones, which do not have streamlined systems in place to curb these problems.

Commercial and manufacturing industries are widespread in a developing country, but most companies are unwilling to enter these markets due to lack of proper infrastructure and inadequate building management systems and building automation. Power backups have been around for a while, but they would often fail to function on time, and sometimes fail to handle the load.

With technological advancements, power distribution networks have also grown in functionality and modern forms of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) are becoming increasingly useful and popular in the market.

To elucidate on this point further, the newest model of UPS battery backup is Smart-UPS, which is currently available the market and serves different purposes. It can solve power cut issues faced by industries. Smart-UPS are created to save data and information in case of a power cut and regulate the power distribution in these situations.

Smart-UPS are quite unique in terms of their performance, and they do not simply perform as a backup. They have a contemporary and technologically-driven electric relays that ensure the supply of the electric current is consistent. These Back UPS perform functions that common UPS devices are not capable of. They can adjust voltage levels and sustain a stable flow during voltage fluctuation—commonly referred to as Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR). They have alarms, which go off when batteries are close to running out of power or in case of a power cut.

Smart-UPS are also linked and connected to a network or cloud in a smart building through which they can be used and controlled. Devices are linked to the server to make sure they do not suffer from power cuts and other disturbances. It is vital that they are linked to an electrical switchboard, which is connected to the UPS. Companies across the industry also have a myriad of products in this segment, and most of them are trusted and eminent brands. Schneider Electric is an example of such a brand. Installing a Smart-UPS is the solution to the problem of inevitable outages and disruptions, especially in the environment of a developing country like India.
