Dynamic UPS Technology
In the 1950s, HITEC engineers leveraged kinetic energy to invent the first uninterruptible power supply that didn’t use chemical storage, and the Dynamic UPS industry was born. There has been an ongoing debate ever since as to which is really the better method for storing energy in UPS applications, batteries or kinetic energy?
Batteries established a firm foothold for many decades because they offered a shorter time to market and higher production volume. Used in Static UPS systems, batteries are often selected over their kinetic counterparts due to a perception that they provide cost-effective protection at all load levels. Many companies therefore often put their stamp of approval on procuring a Static UPS system without fully considering the total cost of ownership and the tangible benefits that a Dynamic UPS system can bring to their business.
As pioneers in this industry, we have seen numerous power storage approaches come and go, and over the last 60 years our hands-on experience and technology knowledge has created a UPS system that offers far superior power conditioning and power protection over battery based UPS systems.
