Powerware UPS

The Powerware Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) component monitors and configures the proprietary UPS mechanism provided by Powerware.

A UPS provides constant power to a computer system when a power fluctuation or power loss occurs. Built-in electronics constantly monitor line voltages: if the line voltage fluctuates above or below predefined limits, or fails entirely, the UPS supplies power to the computer system from built-in batteries. The UPS converts the direct current (DC) battery voltage into the alternating current (AC) voltage required by the computer system. The change to batteries must take place very rapidly to prevent data loss.
