Using Appropriate Safety Procedures: UPS & Surge Protectors

Another important safety measure is the use of uninterrupted power supplies protectors (USP) and surge protectors.

These components help to mitigate brown outs and black outs, and controls the flow of power to the target device as if it were the power source.

UPS devices have a specific run time that allows what’s called a Graceful Shutdown; you’ll learn what that is and how it works.

Surge protectors are also rated, the preferred is the UL1449 for 330v and you learn what the parameters stands for and what the ideal capacity/failure rate is and why that should be the benchmark.

We’ll diagram what happens in both these occurrence and how the UPS and surge protecting device works to prevent a catastrophic device failure.
