UPS Surge Protectors? You are in the Right Place! Trust Your Computer Services To The Pros!
Rarely do we give attention to the notebook,server,desktop, modem power supply or its correct voltage and immunity against electrical damage. UPS stands for an Uninterruptable Power Supply.
This is an imperative area to get right on day one and here is a brief overview of how and why w need to address the power source. Firstly, most places on planet earth occasionally experience large electrical storms with lightning and as far as Sydney, NSW is concerned, we not only have a healthy lightning season, which ranges from approximately mid-end of September through to late February, but we have some of the most devastating lightning damage history in the world. I mean you ask around how often your overseas friends have seen 68 cows die instantly from one lightning strike, but in Dorrigo, NSW on the 31st October 2005, this historically occurred when lightning struck a tree on a dairy farm which travelled through the earth and only three cows survived! Our computers and communications equipment has RAM that runs at 1.25volts and most components are on a 5volt or 12volt rail, so lightning is a recipe for disaster. Can we reduce the possibility and cost of damage? Absolutely, if we use one of the USA type quick blow surge protectors with lifetime warranty and UNLIMITED insurance from the manufacturer for life. These cost less than a couple of hundred dollars at the time of writing.
Here are some questions and answers for you.
Q1. Will the electrical cut out system on my houses electricity box stop lightning?
Answer. Absolutely NOT. Too slow. Must have a fuse that blows in less than 8 nanoseconds.
Q2. Will a Surge Protector keep the correct voltage to my system?
Answer. It may be better than a cheap overseas manufactured one, which may not handle 10AMPS or can melt internally after just a couple of years, but you need a UPS for perfect voltage regulation.
Q3. Once I have got my UPS and Surge protection, is this absolutely failsafe?
Answer. No, a direct lightning strike on an iron ore ridge or similar will melt the lot.
Q4. Does turning my system off at the wall guarantee safety?
Answer. Not at all, lightning will jump and still damage everything.
Q5. Does unplugging everything entirely from the wall make my system safe?
Q6. Surely mains voltage is quite safe and regulated?
Answer. Not necessarily. In the purest part of the city, your voltage supply is 250 volts AC. This will run from as low as 190volts to as high as 290volts. In the country and also parts of the city, we can get blackouts, brown outs and major spikes.
So, the message is to protect the power line from day one and you will see far less electrical failures with your gear. Ever had a hard disk drive fail or motherboard or modem? Quite likely this is not a manufacturer fault at all, but a power interruption and these can be handled and managed professionally from day one. This is inexpensive to do and will add life to your components and therefore money to your pocket. We can also do very large versions for bigger enterprises if required.
