The problem of power blacks outs can be partially solved by the use of UPS battery backups .UPS batteries are electrical equipment that provides seamless backup power when the main power fails. It is identified as uninterrupted power supply (UPS) because it helps prevent activity failure at your site when the main power fails. A UPS protects electrical equipments from power disruptions which can cause data loss, fatalities or injuries. The battery backup consists of a battery, control mechanism, outputs and inputs to charge the backup. Batteries are usually reliable in case of abrupt blackout.

How to make sure the UPS battery backup works
To avoid losing data, ensure that the UPS battery backup is fully monitored. UPS battery backup monitoring is a system used to monitor the UPS battery. Most backup batteries have monitoring systems but they too can fail to work. To avoid such incidents, you need to have an external backup system. This backup system is the use of small remote telemetry (RTU) which measures the voltages of the battery by setting threshold alarms for each battery in the backup. Do not employ a monitoring system for the battery backups only but for all the equipments at your website. Configure the unit after the connection of the monitoring system to the UPS to send you notifications when the alarm of a battery goes off. You can also use the alarm master to send notifications using your UPS battery backup monitoring system.
