Eaton UPS’s protecting and keeping you on air

Eaton UPS’s protecting and keeping you on air

High-performance systems are rarely equipped to handle surges or outages on their own. For this reason, it’s vital that you have a viable source of back-up power to support your network in the event that their mains power supply is compromised.

Eaton is a world-leading provider of uninterruptible power systems, or UPS. Through the development of innovative products and services as well as strategic acquisitions of other companies, the organisation strives for continued success in leveraging technical innovation to develop next-generation solutions. Their range of back-up power systems cover everything from at-home network closets and small-scale server rooms through to enterprise and co-location data centres.

With a vast range of products there’s an Eaton UPS to suit your power requirements and budget. Talk to us today and we can devise a safety plan to protect your station.

Some of the most popular Eaton UPS’s our customers have purchased recently include:

  • I’m not sure which UPS to purchase?  If you aren’t sure which UPS to pick, contact us to discuss what equipment you are needing to protect and we can quote you a suitable solution.
  • Where is the best place for your equipment? Slide in alongside your IT equipment off the floor, keeping everything away from water leaks and spills. When mounting in a rack it is best to position it at the bottom, particularly if you have external battery packs, as it is quite heavy.
  • Mounting hardware included? It is important to ensure that the proper 2 or 4-post mounting hardware is included with the UPS battery back-up or you will need to purchase it separately.
