Given that the average unplanned downtime can cost from well over £15,000 to several millions depending on the size of your organisation, UPS solutions are a necessary addition to your business.

With today’s 24/7 operations, manufacturing businesses need consistent power supplies on a daily basis. Leading independent UK multi-brand supplier, Critical Power Supplies, believes that manufacturers are not investing enough into Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS).

The Annual Manufacturing Report has highlighted that the rising cost of energy and raw materials, as well as the potential cost arising from the uncertainty of Brexit are all key concerns for many manufacturers, however Critical Power Supplies are concerned that not enough manufacturers have thought about their power supplies and the risk of disruption.

Jason Koffler, Managing Director of Critical Power Supplies, warns “Many businesses rely on constant production, whether it’s providing online services or hosting, or fast paced logistics and manufacturing. Any power failure in a single step can cause cost intensive downtime, losing sales, business and increasing costs.”

Just-in-time supply chains are even more at risk from power failures, outages and surges – just a tiny hiccup can affect production dramatically. The large machinery used in industrial processes are also more susceptible to power problems, causing transients, harmonics, brownouts, and electrical distortions.
With this in mind, it’s critical that manufacturing business protect themselves from any interruptions in their power supply.

Investing in UPS Solutions not only evens out voltage and frequency issues, but also provides an excellent way of buying time so businesses can react to a power event. Although the battery runtime of some uninterruptible power sources are varied and can be relatively short (up to several hours), this normally gives organisations sufficient time to start a standby power source or properly shut down equipment. Should there be a dip in supply or even a power surge, UPS gives time to prepare to shut down applications, start a generator or enable machines to get to a safe stage in their process.

Jason Koffler continues “Given that the average unplanned downtime can cost from well over £15,000 to several millions depending on the size of your organisation, UPS solutions are a necessary addition to your business. They will recover the upfront cost and provide essential peace of mind that is hard to put a value on.”

Without this essential contingency, manufacturing processes and IT hardware can be significantly damaged. This can result in what would be a potential small bill from the cost of a UPS, to suddenly becoming an expensive mission critical issue. With the advent of high efficiency solutions, UPS can save manufacturing businesses their investment cost several times over.

Notes
Annual Manufacturing Report 2017 by The Manufacturer http://www.themanufacturer.com

A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) is a system that provides emergency power when the input power source or mains power fails. This differs from an emergency power system or standby generator as the devices provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions.
