We speak to Murrelektronik’s Craig Cookson to learn more about their Emparro ACCUcontrol UPS system and the many advantages it offers.
What is a UPS system used for?
An uninterruptible power supply system or UPS system is a battery that provides backup when electrical power fails. In any manufacturing plant, avoiding system downtime is essential. Investing in an effective UPS system, such as Murrelektronik’s Emparro ACCUcontrol, can ensure a seamless switch to battery power, keeping your machines working without delay or interruption.
Murrelektronik’s Application Engineer, Craig Cookson, talks us through the advantages of installing a good UPS system.
