Computer UPS Protectors? You are in the Right Place! Trust Your Computer Services To The Pros!
Electricity is powerful and yet invisible. You see the plug and it looks like just metal. You touch the metal and you will find that 240 volts is a lively experience!
Your IT gear runs with extremely low voltages. Check out your modem, router, printer, notebook and you will see a transformer is stepping down the voltage to under 24 volts in most cases.
The reality is that we all suffer from dirty power. What is this? This is a statement referring to the fact that a pure 240 volts AC supply is a rare find. Most often, our power is cycling higher and lower, depending on contention rates in the street, power drain by high consumption devices such as massive air-conditioners and the like and actual power failures and inconsistencies.
Allow me to share with you just two real life stories that may help you to understand the issues.
Many years ago, a lady who lived by a beautiful lake near Robertson in the Southern Highlands bought a brand new computer from us and I offered, as we always do, to come and deliver and set it up at no cost. When I arrived I tested the old pc and remarked, This computer has hardly been used, it seems to run like new! Oh no, the lady replied, That PC is several years old and has been used full-time everyday. As I reached down to unplug the system, I realized she had a particularly high quality UPS installed, which had been there from day one. This UPS had regulated the voltage to near perfection for the duration of the PCs life and herein lies the secret! The fact of the matter is that electrical surges cause stress on components and lack of voltage causes weak data writing and also failures in data handling due to component inefficiencies. If you want to keep your treasured computer in top condition, feed it clean power for its entire life and the quality of the UPS is the key! This is a wise choice.
Another time, I was invited by several very well established Australian figures to set up their home offices in Joadja, on an iron ore ridge in the same Southern Highlands, which is where we started this business in Australia, in Bowral, NSW. The old PCs were completely fried by lightning damage and being uneconomical to repair, they had to be replaced. One farmer there replaced his system three times within 6 months and I noticed that, although his insurance company kindly honoured their contract each time, these could have been avoided.
At the same time, I assisted a lawyer who was a neighbor and he and his wife described to me their recent lightning storm. In his own words he stated, It was like a Spielberg movie. The lightning hit the telephone pole at the rear of the garden, at about 200 feet distance and the telephone cable ripped up through the earth in flames and finally melted the plastic phone on our kitchen bench top. Standing right besides the telephone in the kitchen was my wife.
Look, these are extremes, but the message is two fold and very clear!
