  6. What is a Generator?

    If you're here, then you're wondering, what is a generator? And why do I need one for my business? First of all, what is a diesel generator? A diesel generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. In the event of a power failure, the generator is there to support your essential systems, for up to 72 hours. But how do you know if a generator is right for you? The main purpose of a diesel generator is to supply long-term backup power. If you have systems that you can't afford to down for a long period of time, then a generator is right for you. Different size generators can be provided depending on how much power your business needs.

  10. The 9 Reasons for Backup Power

    You may be looking at a UPS system to protect you from a power failure but did you realise this is only 1 of 9 different power problems that can bring your business to a halt.

    1. Power Sags - That flicker of lights, that's a power sag and that's caused by the business down the road turning on that heavy bit of industrial kit. This can cause data errors, memory loss and equipment shutdowns. Most people think that changing a lightbulb will resolve that flickering light, but a UPS system will do that for you.
    2. Power Surge - What happens when the people down the road turn off that big heavy equipment, even though this is the opposite of a power sag it can cause the same problems, including data errors, memory loss and equipment shutdowns.
    3. Undervoltage - Is when the voltage is under what it should be. Basically, this is a stead lower voltage state right across the national grid. What this can mean to you are data loss, data corruption and premature hardware failure. You may think a power surge protector is an answer, but in fact, a UPS can cover you for this and for power failure.
    4. Overvoltage - This is when there is a rapid increase of up to 6000 volts to
