Lifecycle Management for 3-Phase UPS Equipment:
How to get the most out of your investment
Three-phase UPS equipment has an approximate design life of 10-12 years. The installation environment, maintenance, and services that are performed on your equipment have a direct impact on total cost of ownership and the length of reliable service your UPS equipment can provide. Following best practices for UPS maintenance and service will maximize the useful life of your UPS equipment.
The loss of uptime from a UPS failure costs money and can jeopardize safety, so we advise customers to follow these three guidelines for UPS longevity:
- Replace the batteries every 3-5 years and capacitors or power modules every 5-7 years
- Make sure the UPS is installed in a proper environment with the correct temperature and humidity
- Replace the UPS as soon as it starts to show signs of reaching the end of its useful life
To help you plan for proactive maintenance and minimize the total cost of owning and operating an efficient UPS system, we have put together a whitepaper that reviews the recommended service during each stage of the 3-Phase UPS lifecycle. For more detail regarding managing the lifecycle of your 3-Phase UPS Equipment, download our whitepaper, “3-Phase UPS Service Best Practices” or see the full article on UPS Lifecycle Management.
