Preventative Maintenance of UPS units is often overlooked or not considered an essential facet of an organisation's disaster contingency efforts.

A sound preventative maintenance program typically includes the following:
Typically these services are scheduled to be conducted at fixed times throughout the year, the frequency of which is determined by the type of unit and the nature of the business operation involved.
Routine preventative maintenance services can extend the life of your UPS while mitigating the chances of unplanned downtime.
Physical preventative maintenance checks are complemented by the introduction of remote monitoring of your UPS infrastructure. Remote Monitoring involves the equipping of your UPS with the necessary communication components to allow the vital operational parameters to be shared over a dedicated connection to a command center. Once all the pieces are in place, UPS parameters such as voltage, temperature, battery levels etc., can be monitored and tracked.
The benefits of remote monitoring include:
This service is further complemented by the use of Environmental Monitoring Devices (EMDs). EMDs allow the person or team monitoring the infrastructure to also have information on the environment surrounding the UPS; Temperature, Humidity & Smoke, are all examples of conditions which can be monitored remotely.
