The Importance of Having Power Protection For Computers

Computers are fragile. When an unexpected power failure occurs your computer shuts down improperly, causing the hard drive, an essential component where data is stored, to become damaged. Your system may no longer be able to detect your hard drive, or your hard drive may not be able to boot properly. If that happens, anything from a temporary outage to data loss or even internal hardware issues can occur. The recovery process for lost data is often impossible to achieve, which leads to time, energy, and money wasted.

Having power fluctuations from the wall outlet can also cause problems. These fluctuations are not uncommon and regularly do occur without you knowing. This can cause premature failure of the power supply powering the computer, leading costly repairs.

Clean power is another big issue facing computers. If you are in an older building or are located in specific area, sometimes the power coming from your wall outlet may not be considered “clean”. Clean power has the right voltage and frequency. Unclean power causes your computer to work harder, producing inefficiencies and the deterioration of its components.

The Solution

Using high quality uninterruptible power supply (UPS) equipment can help protect your hardware against damage from unexpected power failures or unclean power. UPS devices provide power backup to your system, ensuring that there is no interruption between your computer system and the main power supply. This won’t keep your computer up and running forever, but it provides enough time to save your work and properly shut down your computer.

These devices also clean the power before it reaches your computer. Some are able to connect to your computer and send a signal to shut down properly when you are experiencing a power outage.
