Mecer uninterruptible power supply (UPS) Dealers, Suppliers, Resellers in Kenya

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) ranges from 9V all the way to extremely costly and large battery systems. The UPS is sandwiched between a device like a computer and a wall outlet to prevent undesired features that can occur within the power source such as surges, sags, outages and bad harmonics from the power supply to avoid negative impact on the device. The standby UPS is a battery backup to fill in the void of power loss, while the Ferro resonant stand by couples the battery backup with the power supply by a transformer, where the transformer acts as a buffer from the power supply to the stand by supply. The MECER line interactive UPS uses an inverter converter only, with a power supply the stand by battery is charged up, and with a loss of the primary power supply, the inverter converter switches over to the battery backup with a much quicker switching time that the stand by UPS.

A UPS is a necessary asset in any organization especially when the power goes off. There are several bad things that will happen; you can lose important data. Disk logical structure could suffer damage especially when the system is writing data to the disk. Even a brief power interruption (a few milliseconds) can cause problems. Longer interruptions mean more trouble. If your servers are affected, you could lose both business from customers and productivity from employees.

According to current studies, a workstation has greater than 120 problems related to power per month . Power surges or failures account for 45> of all data loss. These conditions can be prevented by a good UPS with an appropriate rating for your network equipment and computer. This will ensure clean power by correcting electrical noise, surges, spikes and brownouts.


Run time: The length of time a UPS can provide its rated power while running on its batteries. The longer the run time, the longer PCs and servers can remain in use before they need to be shut down.

VA: Voltage Amperes is a measure of the power load that a UPS can support. To determine an individual VA rating, multiply voltage times amperage, or, to convert from AC watts, multiply wattage by 1.35.

Surge protection: The vendor’s measurement, usually in amperes, for how big a surge the UPS can handle. A UPS handling surges up to 6,500 amperes is adequate for workstations.

Power factor: The ratio of real power to apparent power or load. This value ranges between 0 and 1. A power factor of 1.0 indicates the current is in phase with the voltage and reactive power is zero. An efficient UPS is rated close to 1.0, such as .95 PF.

Joule rating: The amount of energy delivered by one watt of power for one second; also, the rating for the amount of surge a UPS can handle. A rating of 480 joules will suit a rack-mounted sever.

When a blackout occurs a Mecer UPS can page you and automatically shut down the equipment. The transition time ensure that data is not lost even that cached in the memory.

What Kind of MECER UPS Should I buy in Kenya?

Mecer UPS are in three diverse types; choosing the right one can provide the data centres and workstations with clean power while supporting load during outages.

Standby power supply 

These are perfectly suited for a workstation. This is an off-line UPS and normaly takes power from the wall sockets and it through. It converts the power from AC to DC through a single conversion, charging the battery. An inverter operating in a standby mode converts the battery DC to AC when power fails to support the load for a short time.

Line-interactive UPS

This type of UPS(s) is meant for important hardware, inserts an inductor in series between the load and outlet. This inductor allows the UPS inverter to accept the incoming power and regulates low and high voltage to the load.  Just like the standby Power supply, the line interactive can be efficient and inexpensive because it supports the whole critical load only when there are power disturbances. Howbeit, it can isolate the critical load from the input when running on its battery.

Double-conversion online UPS

This type offers a double conditioning process. The incoming AC is purified by the rectifier to DC to supply the UPS’s DC bus. The output inverter likewise takes the DC power and produces regulated AC that supports the critical load. During normal operation, batteries are charged. The batteries supports the load and the inverter whenever the input power is out of spec. This design protects the data centres, networking equipment and servers. Double conversion has a low power factor and extensive power switching during normal operations which could ultimately generate harmonic currents back upstream. This distortion disturbs the quality of the voltage on the powerline potentially causing computer multifunction to fires. In the same regard lower power factor is inefficient and thus you will need an oversized UPS.

Rackmount UPS

A mecer rackmount is designed for use within a 19 inch Tracks enclosures. A RM ups system are designed to provide maximum power in every compact packages that are inclusive of built in batteries and typically need from 1U-12U of vertical rack space. Most rack UPS employ either line interactive or online power topologies. Each technology has its benefits and may be necessary for configuring cost effective power protection. The choice is dependent on factors including the criticality of the protected equipment. The choice depends on factors including the criticality of the protected equipment, load size, location and budgetary considerations.

Rack mountable servers are the pivot for today’s network computing systems. These systems need reliable and compact power protection that will go hand in hand with their growing needs. Designed for servers and networking equipment used in rackmount environments, rack UPS systems are ideally suited for mission critical applications and systems, network workstations, servers, IDF/network closets, large network peripherals, VoIP and workstations.

 Smart UPS

What are the advantages of a smart UPS?

A traditional Mecer UPS prevents downtime across data center’s power infrastructure and thus you might wonder why a smart UPS is necessary. Smart UPS provides standard units and legacy functions that simplifies UPS management and deliver a lower mean time to recover.

A Mecer smart UPS integrates with the network and thus provides real time status updates giving you better visibility into performance and health. If a battery need to be replaced, the system sends a notification so you can swap it and keep the power supply at maximum length.

Smart UPS provides more precise charging controls as well as voltage and frequency regulations. This intelligent management control system extends battery performance and life and can save on total energy costs. You need not worry about overcharged batteries.

What to Look for in a smart UPS

There are various factor to be considered when selecting a Smart UPS such as how to properly size, battery type, voltage requirement, maintenance requirement and backup power duration.

  • Predictive alerts. Many UPS monitors component failure potential or component degradation so the systems sends an early warning notification.
  • Remote power management. A smart UPS can connect to the network and enable remote power management. Everything is controlled from a central location.
  • Intelligent battery. This feature extend the life and performance from your battery with more precise charging capabilities.
  • Advanced power conditioning. A smart UPS ensure matched and balanced current supply to any load. Equipment will receive protection against from unexpected spikes and outages.
  • Modular design. Battery modules come in a few types, but a modular UPS design can protect against isolated failures.

Considerations for the switch to smart power systems

A smart UPS can help with power load matching and management, but making the leap to this technology depends on current backup power and infrastructure needs. You may have a centralized battery bank to support the entire power infrastructure, it will take investment and time to transition the whole grid to a smart UPS.


No one want their hard work to be wasted because of a small mistakes. Thus the PC needs to be in the best state. To ensure that your device is in its ideal best state and no voltage or signal problems could harm the computer, get your hands on the MECER UPS right now.
