Routine maintenance for your UPS system is essential to ensuring that it works when you need it to most. Failure at the wrong time can lead to downtime, data loss and more.
While many UPS systems can remotely detect and report existing problems, that’s not a substitute for regular, physical inspections. Maintenance detects corrosion, enclosure cleanliness, connection issues and other problems before they turn into larger issues.

Batteries — Roughly 70 percent of problems encountered with UPS systems stem from weakened batteries or systems that won’t start. All batteries have a limited lifespan and need regular testing.
Capacitors — A typical UPS has a dozen or more capacitors, of many shapes and sizes. Over time, these can degrade and fail, limiting the lifespan of other capacitors.
Filters — Replacing filters regularly can avoid UPS shutdowns due to excessive dust and overheating.
Fans — Fans may slow or stall as they age, eventually needing replaced to avoid overheating.
