UPS maintenance contracts
Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and standby power systems have consumable parts that will age with use. At some time during the life of the device, a service issue will arise – the batteries may need replacing, a cooling fan may have failed, or the system develops a PCB fault. Any of these circumstances could result in the UPS not being able to provide battery run-time when the mains fails or the level of protection from mains related power problems, such as spikes and electrical noise, sags and surges.
The more you rely on your power system, the more you need it maintained. A UPS maintenance plan provides a guaranteed time response rather than best endeavours. Maintenance plan customers have priority call on service resources.
