Standard UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a combination of converters, switches, and energy storage devices (such as batteries) constituting a power system for maintaining continuity of load power in case of input power failure. None
Modular UPS A UPS comprised of two or more single UPS units, sharing one or more common frames and a common energy storage system, whose outputs, in Normal Mode of operation, are connected to a common output bus contained entirely within the frame(s). The total quantity of single UPS units in a modular UPS equals Òn + rÓ where n is the quantity of single UPS units required to support the load; r is the quantity of redundant UPS units. Modular UPSs may be used to provide redundancy, to scale capacity or both. None
Static UPS UPS where solid-state power electronic components provide the output voltage. None
Rotary UPS without diesel A Rotary UPS is where one or more electrical rotating machines provide the output voltage. A rotary UPS that does not contain an integral diesel engine to supply power to the load during an input power failure. None
Diesel-coupled rotary UPS A Rotary UPS is where one or more electrical rotating machines provide the output voltage. A rotary UPS that contains an integral diesel engine that may be used to supply power to the load during an input power failure. None
Alternating current output UPS UPS that supplies power with a continuous flow of electric charge that periodically reverses direction. None
Direct current output UPS UPS that supplies power with a continuous flow of electric charge that is unidirectional. Includes both individual rectifier units for dc applications and entire Dc-output UPS frames or systems, consisting of rectifier modules, controllers, and any other supporting components. None
Other Other None
