Power solutions

Today many of us find ourselves working from home or in a hybrid format, with video conferencing sessions or collaboration applications such as Teams, Skype or Webex, among others, and we cannot expose our work to an intermittent power supply.

Today our internet connection and our computers have become Critical Infrastructure!

A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) allows to back up any equipment that needs power to operate, from a home or small office equipment, to a large Data Center.

Thanks to its batteries or other energy storage components, it can provide electrical power for a limited time and during an "electrical blackout" to any connected devices.

UPSs provide electrical power to equipment known as critical loads, such as medical, industrial or computer devices, which always require power supply and quality, as they need to be operational and flawless at all times.
