A UPS or Uninterruptable power supply or source are very useful electrical devices that can protect delicate and or mission critical devices from a power surge or power outage.
This kind of devices differs from a backup generator or emergency power system as it will provide almost instant protection and will not trip out sensitive equipment. These items can be used in tandem with backup power sources to provide protection from the extra longevity of initial power outage, and can be combined with software to shut down devices properly within a period should the power fail.
UPS back up devices are typically used to provide power protection to telecommunications, computers and servers in datacenters and offices and increasingly in the home. The kind of set ups these are used to protect are forever growing, from just a single outlet to whole building including critical equipment in hospitals and other places where power disruption could be dangerous or even fatal.
Generally the Primary function of the UPS is to provide protection from Power surges from Electrical supply, and even Lighting Strikes, and then some also have a standby time to continue supplying power, this may just be so the equipment can be automatically shut down via software control or some may be significantly longer with varying levels of protection, redundancy and fluctuationís in supply.
