Surge suppression protects against small surges that cause damage over time, shortening equipment life. Your equipment is also protected from catastrophic surges created by lightening. Most products available also provide an add-on with data line protection for equipment’s “back-door”.
Line conditioners provide surge suppression plus automatic correction of sags and over voltages by boosting low voltage and stepping down high voltage to levels that are safe for your system. This helps prevent data loss and keeps your system up and running even through extended brownouts and over voltages.
Off-Line / Standby UPS
Off line or also known as standby UPS provide surge suppression with a low price solution to environments that have non-critical systems. Utility power is provided during normal operation. Utility voltage and frequency changes are not regulated by this type of UPS, and pass through to your equipment. When voltage or frequency changes become too severe, the UPS inverter converts DC battery power to AC power to run your system.
