EV vs UPS

Thursday, October 12th, 2017 in Blog

Why does EV remove the need for a UPS?

Unlike EV, a UPS backup system operates only during unexpected power loss. Some customers experience UPS’s that have not performed as anticipated, usually due to prolonged power outages. However, this may not be the case for everyone. Some people are quite happy to operate fully with a UPS, encountering no issues.

What the EV does is allow you to be in control from the beginning. The device can operate off-grid, and then charge when required from your chosen source. Over all, the system provides power continuity throughout the day, instead of just during a power outage.

What are the technical differences?

We understand that it’s easy for us to just sit here and state that the EV is more efficient than the UPS! So, we want to show you how the device compares and just how beneficial it is in regards to charging, maintenance and run time. Take a look at the image below and see for yourself!

The concern is that the UPS provides only a 10-minute backup in the case of power failure. We cannot ignore the potentiality of a situation occuring in which all devices lose power for long periods of time. QED’s own tests have proven that the EV can supply 96 cameras for 19 hours; then fully charge back to 100% capacity within 5 hours. All whilst requiring 60% less rack space and no maintenance requirements. When charging the device, you can benefit from the best electricity tarrifs within the 12am-7am off-peak time slot.
