When Uninterruptible Power Systems (UPS) are discussed, most people think of the little box they purchased to provide backup power to their home or office computers. They do not think of industrial-grade power protection. However, its role in protecting critical engineering, prototyping, testing and sensitive computer equipment is a necessary security element. As with other types of security systems, the UPS is available in different grades that provide differing levels of protection.
