Maintaining UPS safely
As a preventive or curative measure, the maintenance of UPS is a delicate phase in the lifecycle of a data centre installation, especially because the operator has to balance speed of execution with the complexity of maintenance operations.
It is essential to ensure the continuity of supply of critical loads.
After diagnosing the problem, it should be isolated and resolved safely for the rest of the installation.
The risk of error, with sometimes dramatic consequences, is greatly increased when access to certain components is particularly tricky, or if any dismantling has to be carried out inside the UPS.
Carry out work safely
To carry out maintenance work, it is recommended to use equipment with the following characteristics:
Extracting the module for maintenance outside the UPS.
Intervention on the remote module separate from the system to eliminate any risk of affecting the critical chain.
Access to all components to make maintenance work easier and more reliable.
