Spare and replacement UPS components
The inventory of spare parts ensures systems remain operational. The components are listed under three major categories:
- Start-up spares: recommended fuses and parts during commissioning
- Critical spares: suitable for stock, repairs and troubleshooting
- Consumables: parts with a limited service life and must be regularly replaced
UPS maintenance for reliability
Schneider Electric’s maintenance services are designed to guarantee continued safe and reliable operation of UPS systems.
The company performs visual and functional checks on the system and battery, and determines whether replacement parts are required.
Installation of batteries and UPS systems
Gutor UPS and batteries are correctly installed and working properly. The main tasks include visual inspection of UPS systems and batteries, a functional check of the UPS and a battery discharge test.
Tailored training programmes for UPS engineers
A customised training is created for technical staff for the individual handling of the UPS systems. These programmes are based on the specific requirements, depending on the facilities installed on-site.
