Whether you are planning a new backup power system for your business IT network or your home computer, you can ensure it is correctly installed by following the three steps in this short guide. As professional UPS solution providers, we know exactly how to install a UPS system and would be glad to provide you with the services you need. However, if you plan to go it alone or use another service provider, make sure the steps below are followed in your installation plan.
3 steps to a successful UPS installation
By including these 3 steps in your installation plan, you can maximise your chances of completing the project without a hitch.
Select the right location — Ideally, your UPS system should be located in an area with climate control, where the temperature and humidity can be maintained at constant levels. A room without windows is preferable but if this is not possible, try to site your UPS components well away from any direct sunlight.
Agree on a project timeline — If you have read many guides on how to install a new power supply, you will probably have noticed they include a lot of practical advice on unit placement and safety but do not talk much about the planning of the installation itself. This does not mean that you can forget about planning your installation carefully: one of the most critical stages for all the projects we have completed has been the planning stage. It is important to make sure that all affected parties are aware of the project timeline and are given the opportunity to voice any concerns they may have.
Test your new system — Once your new system has been installed, it is imperative to test it properly. Any comprehensive guide on how to install a power supply should stress the importance of testing, and if it doesn’t, we would not recommend following it. In order to complete an effective test, you will need to simulate a power outage. This should be done under carefully controlled conditions to avoid any unintentional damage to sensitive equipment. Only once the system has passed a thorough test should it be commissioned: you need to have complete confidence in your UPS system, or it will not serve the purpose for which it was designed.
