Most businesses rely on digital information to conduct day-to-day business. Even a brief electric outage may costs a company a fortuneevery company something. By turning to power protection products, such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), companies can save lots of money.
When purchasing a UPS system, it is important to think long term. While the purchase price of a traditional UPS system can be 10% to 15% less than an advanced modular UPS system, Total Cost of Ownership should be considered.
The lower purchase price of traditional UPS technology is offset by higher operating costs. In comparison, a modular system reduces operating costs. In addition to reduced costs, the modular approach offers a smaller footprint, greater flexibility and scalability.
The colleagues of Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd. therefore present a convincing model calculation on its website:
“For example, approximately £150,000 (€ 167,000) could be saved over five years by replacing a ten year old 400kVA parallel redundant UPS system, running at half of its rated capacity, with a new Decentralised Parallel Architecture (DPA) 200kVA parallel redundant UPS system. This would also reduce CO2 emissions by over 700 tonnes and cut floor space by 70 percent.”
Conclusion: The higher initial investment in modular UPS systems provide long term cost savings.
