How to extending the lifespan of online UPS

Here are some tips to extending the lifespan of online UPS:

  • Appropriate environment: Online UPS should be placed in a dry and well ventilated environment, away from high temperature, humidity, and dust. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or near heat sources.

  • Appropriate load: Online UPS should choose the appropriate load based on its rated capacity and load requirements. Excessive load may cause UPS overload and shorten its service life. At the same time, avoid prolonged operation under low loads, which may cause the UPS to malfunction.

  • Regular maintenance: Regularly maintain and inspect the UPS, including cleaning the UPS casing, checking the battery status, and checking the tightness of wires and connectors. According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, replace the battery regularly to ensure the normal operation of the UPS.

  • Avoid frequent starts and stops: Frequent starts and stops may cause damage to the electronic components of the UPS. Therefore, try to avoid frequently starting and stopping UPS unless necessary.

  • Prevention of overload and voltage fluctuations: Avoid connecting excessive loads to the UPS to avoid overload. In addition, using a stable power supply to avoid frequent voltage fluctuations and power failures helps protect the electronic components of UPS.

  • Timely troubleshooting: If a UPS malfunction or alarm occurs, take appropriate measures to repair or contact professional technical personnel for maintenance. Neglecting the fault may lead to more serious damage.

  • Update firmware and software: According to the manufacturer’s recommendations, regularly update the firmware and software of UPS to ensure it has the latest features and fixes potential vulnerabilities.

  • Regular testing: Conduct regular self inspection and testing of UPS to ensure its normal operation. This can include testing battery life, automatic switching function, and power protection function.
