Inverters challenge UPS in AC back up Power Solutions - Powernet OY believes the inverter market has strong growth potential.
While the inverter market is only a fraction of the size of the UPS market, it is widely believed to have a strong growth potential, especially for devices, which requires long autonomy time and n+1 redundant secured AC supply. The most widely used power backup solution for servers, routers, switches and other telecommunications equipment with high requirements for protection is the UPS. However, the UPS has a downside, which lies in its battery life. This means that a UPS backup that originally had sufficient capacity may become insufficient as the system that it serves grows and because there is a limit to the extent to which a UPS can be expanded. At the same time, the continuous increase of the number of users depending on the UPS systems puts them under further strain.
