If you're looking to buy a CSB battery in Australia, it's important to familiarise yourself with the key features and benefits of CSB UPS batteries. UPS stands for Uninterruptible Power Supply. These batteries are designed to help you avoid or mitigate electrical issues caused by unexpected power outages, sags or surges. A sudden hard shut down due to power issues can damage sensitive electronic equipment, leading to performance degradation or even immediate hardware failure. In extreme cases, critical data can be lost forever.
The first thing to do is to figure out the total amount of power your electronic devices use, which is known as the load. Determine the load by identifying the wattage requirements for each device you plan to connect to the UPS, then adding them all up.
For example, a basic home office setup for which you might want a CSB battery in Canberra could include a desktop PC that needs 120 watts to run correctly, an external hard drive that needs 30 watts and a wireless router that needs 20 watts. In this case, you need a UPS battery that supports a minimum of 170 watts. A business office with multiple servers and switches needs a considerably higher capacity. You also need to ensure that your UPS system has enough outlets to support all those devices.
In the short term, run time is the most important metric for how long a UPS battery lasts. Run time refers to the number of minutes the UPS battery can power its attached devices during a complete loss of other electricity. The higher the wattage load on the battery, the shorter the run time. The minimum run time is defined as the amount of time required to safely shut down all of the connected equipment.
While you don't necessarily need a UPS battery with a lengthy run time that allows you to keep working for hours after primary power is lost, it's critically important that you identify your minimum required run time by testing to see how long it takes to perform a proper shutdown on the relevant devices. If the UPS battery's run time is shorter than your minimum run time, you run the risk of suffering the very equipment damage a UPS setup is designed to avoid.
The battery in a CSB USB system recharges automatically when primary power is online. Over time, you can expect battery life to degrade, therefore requiring a replacement.
You can find a CSB battery for sale through UPS Solutions. The long-term life of a CSB UPS battery varies widely by model. For example, the lightweight CSB Battery HR Series is rated for up to 5 years in standby, while the TPL Series is rated for up to 12 years. Battery life is affected by the amount of usage and environmental factors, including ambient temperature and humidity. As a best practice, periodically test your UPS battery to make sure it's operating correctly, and replace it a year or two before its maximum lifespan is up.
