Protect your business from blackouts with Eaton’s top-rated UPS solutions. header image

During these winter months the risk of blackouts is higher than ever, putting your business at risk.

The power outages caused by blackouts can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. This could leave hours of idle time where employees cannot continue their work, data being corrupted, or files lost before they had a chance to be saved.

This can have a very significant impact on the business, with ITIC 2021 Global Server Hardware, Server OS Reliability Report stating that even a single hour of server downtime can cost businesses more than €300,000.

With energy demands rising, atmospheric phenomena, and less stable renewable energy sources being used, all key factors for potential blackouts, you may feel like these problems are inevitable, but there is still hope!

Eaton has a range of uninterruptible power supplies (USP) that will keep your business running despite the odds. For the peace of mind that your business is protected, and the reliability that comes with their UPS lines, this is an invaluable investment for any business.

With a UPS in your arsenal, you will be able to continue business as usual even in a blackout. Electrical equipment will continue to run, devices will remain connected to the network, and your employees can continue working. By switching from the mains supply to batteries, the UPS can ensure businesses are always supplied with the high-quality, reliable backup power they need to thrive.

Whilst Eaton have many impressive lines of UPS products on offer, there are two that we think will be great UPS choices to get you started!
