Work details

  • Visually inspect UPS equipment for loose cables and connections, burned insulation and any other signs of wear.
  • UPS filters to be checked and changed as required.
  • UPS equipment and enclosures to be vacuumed and cleaned.
  • Equipment to be infrared (IR) scanned. This will identify if any hot spots exist, and whether any loose connections on buss bars, wire connections and overloaded breakers and relays exist within the equipment.
  • All above maintenance tasks will be none invasive and unless repairs are needed, the UPS  won’t be switched off or placed into battery test. Internal bypass test will still be performed.
