How SMPS can be protected by UPS

When it comes to your business, you want to make sure that you’re protected against all worst-case scenarios. Your systems need to be as secure as possible and when it comes to your existing SMPS, you can add more reliability by adding a UPS system to protect it.

In this article, we will discuss how SMPS is protected by UPS and how it can help protect your business.

What is SMPS? 

 An SMPS, or Switched Mode Power Supply, converts AC to DC power through high-frequency transformers. With an SMPS, no power storage equipment is used and there is also no backup capability.

Whilst an SMPS is typically cheaper and smaller than UPS, you do not have the added peace-of-mind of having the backup capability.  

This means if the worst should happen and a power outage does occur, you could lose vital data or information.

What is UPS? 

UPS provides A.C. supply to devices when power fails, even when there is no incoming power supply. This allows for smooth and reliable power, which can make any unplanned power disruptions that little bit easier to navigate.

Where SMPS uses high-frequency transformers, UPS uses low-frequency transformers and has backup capabilities – meaning you don’t have to worry about losing important data during an unforeseen power disruption.

How they work together

 By adding UPS to your existing SMPS, you are giving yourself the reassurance that you are protected during any unplanned power disruptions. By providing an uninterrupted A.C supply, your SMPS can continue to operate until the disruption is resolved. Meaning minimal downtime for your business, saving you from a loss of productivity and money.

As well as reassurance regarding productivity, you will also have peace of mind when it comes to your customer information or data. Where your SMPS doesn’t have any backup capabilities, your UPS will – meaning you don’t have to worry about the disastrous aftermath of losing important or sensitive data during a power outage.
