We also advise you to acquire an UPS together with your CT.

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS), also known as a battery backup, provides backup power when your regular power source fails, or the voltage drops to an unacceptable level. A UPS allows for secure, orderly shutdown of a computer and connected equipment.

When is there a particular need for UPS?

  • When you are in doubt about your power supply / power quality
  • When you are experiencing power outages
  • When you live in an area with poor power supply
