Advice needed to buy an UPS .
« on: February 07, 2013, 05:45:42 am »
I am currently running the following component setup (mentioned in my signature)  with a 650w PSU,
But I think It doesn't need more than 450Ws to run that setup.......
So If I am going to buy a UPS what should I buy?..............
Any advices?........

Your system draws around 450-500W on average (keep in mind that C2Q's draw almost twice the power as a modern Core i5).

So to keep your system running off a UPS, assuming you PSU is 80% efficient,

500W / 80% =  625W + 30W for the monitor = 655W.

Therefore, a 650VA UPS wouldn't hold your PC on load. Get atleast 1KVA or more.

Redline Technologies sell East 1.2KVA UPS for Rs 9,500/=

There are three type of UPS as far as i know

Standby , Line Interactive, online
Standby , Line Interactive UPS just keep you run in the Wall out until a power cut take place. So the issue will come only when you run in batteries..

And Normally UPS give Power in Va not in Watt.
I recommend you use a Wattage meter to get your maximum needed power with in the possibility of loosing power

Get a minimum of 1kva or you will regret it later on, even its pretty dam useful for anything when you dont have power. I used to run a table fan back in the day during those long ass power cuts

Just a correction, the EAST 1.2KVA line interactive UPS sells for just 9.5K with 2 years comprehensive warranty.

EAST is one of the largest UPS manufacturers in the world.

Make sure it deliver AT LEAST 450W (Not Va)
This is only for your CPU and LCD
If you want to run more time on battery you need more power.

Some time i get power cut less than 30sec.. My PC shutdowns in 15sec.. So if i can run my System for 1min in battery that is ok for me and my work.

Your System with Seasonic 650W PSU would be consuming a load of around around 350W. Therefore at peak usage your UPS should support you during power failure or power drop. Most UPS will support you at max 60%.

Zero says your system could go up to 450W at peak, I doubt but if that is the case then your 1200W UPS may give you only 1 - 2 min backup at the start. This will drop down after about 6 - 9 Months with the battery going down. Since these Chinese Batteries used in it cannot last so well. This like doing a stress test on your PC, you are trying to do on the UPS.

A 1KV UPS provides you with 600W, and 60% of 600W is 360W and your system will be taking at peak as per my estimate around that so you may have 40% left, assuming 10% is equal to 1Min you will have 4Min backup. But as per Zero says if its 450 - 500W then you will have just 1 to 1.5Min. This is of no use.

The 1.2KV UPS is the same as 1KV. But its a boost of 1KV. As far as the load is concerned it will not provide you 0.6 Factor which is the standard for the Line Interactive UPS.

Mutant-Guy has explained the 3 type of UPS and Line Interactive is the most common UPS Sold in SL. These UPS work with 0.6 Factor. So your 1200KV may, May give 650-690W and you may go with about 2Min backup max.

I know when you Play a game and power goes you will stop it and the usage too will come down, this is the only advantage you will have. And if your system takes a long time to shut then for about 9 Months you will not notice any issue but after that your UPS can shut down faster than your PC.

All these hoping your system has at least an LCD and not the CRT.

East for your information is a OEM UPS Maker in China. They may UPS and in Sri Lanka their were 4 Dealers who are getting this under their brand - DCP (Debug), Mitech, Power 3 (Before) now they have stopped and moved to even Larger company than EAST, Abans (They were). Then EAST comes as EAST to SL.

The best solution for you is go with a 2KV UPS but every one will say its a crazy idea also the price is to high.

We sell the 2KV with the Japanese Brand Yuasa Battery and you know how Yuasa Batteries are at least Anusha May know.

2KVA is the inverter part. the UPS doesn't draw that much power from the power outlet when charging the batteries. if your PC can work without a UPS from a 230V/5A outlet, then it can work with the UPS.

Actually I don't. Who needs batteries when power never fails. ;)

Well if you dont have the 15Amp wiring then use the 5Amp Plug. But you should make sure that line of 5Amp is not being parallel connection to others. You should not use heavy power consuming units on the same line when your computer is on.

We sell Galleon UPS, we dont do Prolink,

Yes quite true.
