It's Emergency Preparedness Month - Make Sure You Celebrate with Reliable Power Protection

September 27, 2012

  By Allison Boccamazzo, Director of Brand Strategy

Although Emergency Preparedness Month is almost over, that doesn’t stop us from needing to educate ourselves on reliable and efficient power protection solutions, and while there are still a few days left, it seems like the perfect time to go over some dependable options to secure power efficiency. While fall and winter notably bring darkness earlier in the day, that doesn’t mean you have to be kept in the dark when it comes to power protection products and solutions; after all, hurricane season isn’t even over yet.

One thing to keep in mind when considering power protection is where you live. Potential emergency situations – and reflectively, power protection needs – can drastically vary depending on geographic dispersal. Take, for example, if you live on the West Coast, where Californians often suffer from earthquakes. Or, perhaps, take those who live in the heavy-hitting Tornado regions, or areas located near bodies of water that need to take flooding into consideration. Your power protection solutions should be just as unique as the specific region you’re shacked up in.

For everyday citizens and businesses alike, power protection continues to remain critical, especially in today’s modern and digital age. “As our world grows increasingly interconnected and our dependence on technology grows, power reliability becomes increasingly critical,” notes Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum in a statement.

Minuteman UPS/Para Systems (News - Alert), a provider of power protection and management products, continues to see excellence with its ground-breaking and innovative solutions, including the Minuteman line of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) for everything ranging from computers to servers to voice and data communication systems.

Offering three distinct types of UPS solutions, Minuteman covers all of the bases to make sure that your specific business needs are met.

For example, its Endeavor Online UPS, a true on-line rack/wall/tower UPS, is ideal for sensitive electronic equipment and critical servers, network devices, and phone systems, as it combines double-conversion technology and extended runtime capability in a versatile case design. Boasting extended runtime using external battery packs, Minuteman SentryPlus UPS monitoring and control software, output receptacle control for non-critical load shedding capability and a three-year warranty, this flexible solution can be installed in a variety of formats and environments for optimum efficiency and increased productivity.
