Power Back Up System

Power Back up System are specifically designed for domestic and commercial application to provide standby power in the event of mains power supply failure. They have many advantages including:-

• Instantaneous and automatic change over when mains power fails which is especially beneficial when used with electronic equipment such as Computers, Servers and Fax Machines.

• Totally silent and non-polluting operations which particularly suits enclosed space applications.

• Very low running costs – just power to charge the batteries.

During normal power conditions the Inverter maintains the batteries at full charge while during power failure, the DC battery energy is seamlessly converted to AC power and fed to the supply circuits. Back-up system include two principal components, an inverter with built in battery charger and a battery bank.

The endurance of a power back up system is determined by battery capacity. We offer a selection of capacities depending on back up time required. The inverters supplied provide automatic regulation to prevent over charge and over discharge and batteries are of the deep cycle long life type.
