May I add, if someone would like to bid for this can they make it known.

That way, we wont be bidding against each other.

If you dont want to be known publicly, a PM to Richard or one of the mods so they can let the rest of us know that someone is bidding for it.

Hi Richard - is there anything else that you require that maybe some of us could club together to purchase.  I am sure there are others like myself who just need pointing in the right direction.

Bestest

Kind Regards

Geoff,

It's an uninteruptable power supply. Think of it as a bit like your boat batteries and invertor, which provide 240V.

A nearline UPS takes in mains voltage and passes it through to the output side to power up critical equipment, it also charges a set of batteries. In the event of a mains failure, the UPS quickly starts an invertor from the batteries, and produces mains voltage to continue powering up the equipment. A very minute delay in switching over to battery power, can cause some sensitive equipment to hiccup.

The more expensive online UPS, takes in mains voltage and is used to charge the batteries. The betteries supply an invertor, which is always running and provides the output voltage to the critical equipment. In the event of a mains failure, there is absolutetly no interruption to power output, the only thing that happens is that the batteries stop being charged. At some point the batteries will go dead if the power isn't restored and then of course the power will still fail, but it buys you some time until the power is restored.

On both types the higher the KVA figure, the more load, or longer it will run the load. Of course as the number of batteries needs to be increased, then so does the weight dramatically. Both types also clean up the mains supply, although the online generally does a better job of this.
