What is uninterruptible power supply (UPS)?

In a simple way to explain, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows a computer to keep running for at least a short time when the primary power source goes off. It also provides protection from power surges and allows you to shutdown your computer system safely.

How to choose UPS?

When choosing your POS system, there are several things you must consider before making a final decision. One particular aspect of the POS system you should pay special attention to is the power wattage needs of the UPS. At the bare minimum you need enough juice in your UPS unit to give your computer system adequate time to shut down properly. That’s the absolute acceptable minimum. If your UPS unit doesn’t have enough juice to provide for the system from the moment the power cuts out until the moment it has successfully shut down, you’re risking damage to the machine and data loss. Always make sure that the power wattage of UPS need to exceed the total amount of wattage from the input devices like your computers, scanners or priniters.
