Residential / SME

The residential and SMEs (Small and medium-sized enterprises) sectors experience the same power challenges as large corporations. Disruption to routine, production delays and losses, increased expenses, security issues, limited access to the internet and entertain and not being able to charge devices, to name a few.

Due to their size the typical home and SME only requires a single-phase power supply. This single-phase power supply will support electronic devices such as security systems, routers, laptops/personal computers, lighting, televisions and to charge mobile phones. We offer an extensive range of products designed to support small domestic appliances as well as IT equipment for prolonged periods. With load shedding many of our enquiries are for battery run times of 2 to 4 hours, however, we can provide solutions for even longer periods if required.

The two key elements in emergency power products are:

  • The ability to run for extended periods on batteries without over-heating
  • The ability to rapidly recharge batteries.

Our products offer extended battery run times and charging capabilities of 8 – 20 Amps (product dependent).

Location of UPS

To ensure adequate cooling of the UPS systems, the internal fan runs during the discharge and recharge cycles of the batteries. Some clients find the fan noise disturbing.

We recommend that the UPS system is installed in either a garage or low traffic area in the home/office. Extension cords may be used to power devices in case of power interruptions.

Installation

These UPS systems are “plug and play” units, plugging into a standard 15Amp wall socket, with the devices plugged into the UPS system.

As the units are not designed for electrical installation into a distribution board any damage arising from such installations voids the warranty.
