Uninterruptible Power Supply Testing
AC Electronic Loads for UPS Testing
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS), also called an uninterruptible power source, is a type of power supply that uses a main power source, but can also maintain power to hardware being powered when the main source fails or is interrupted. UPS are used in applications where maintaining power is of the utmost importance and the continuity of power is crucial.
UPS testing is critical as UPS are typically used to protect hardware such as computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss.
NH Research, Inc. (NHR) AC Electronic Loads (Model 4600) have changed the way small to mid-range UPS are now tested. In this market sector, NHR has provided load instruments to major UPS and inverter manufacturers for integration into their own test stations. For other UPS manufacturers, NHR has provided complete turnkey test systems.
