Service Plan

A Service Plan For Your UPS

Implementing a service plan for your UPS is much like completing routine repairs and inspections on your vehicle. Scheduled maintenance is recommended by every vehicle manufacturer and the findings can help detect a wide range of ailments under the bonnet before they become serious issues.

Your UPS supplies the load with continuous, high quality electrical power, regardless of the status of the mains and preventing the risk of system failures. Here, you can see origin and cost of system failures due to electrical supply.

The most common causes of UPS failures are:

  1. Batteries:Studies show that bad batteries are a leading cause of UPS failures, with temperature and cumulative discharges cited as the primary culprits.
  2. Fans:Some fans fail because of their own electrical or mechanical limitations, or when their ball bearings become dried out. Some fans may withstand as much as 10 years of continuous use, while others run for only short periods before locking up for mechanical reasons.
  3. DC caps: Like batteries, electrolytic capacitors degrade over time. When a capacitor fails, there might not be any immediate visible effects.
  4. Transient spikes:The input side of the UPS (filter/rectifier) may be damaged when a transient spike occurs.


Positive preventive maintenance significantly reduces the probability of a load loss event. Without proper maintenance, many UPSs fail prematurely because critical components, such as batteries and capacitors, wear out from normal use.

Eaton is dedicated to ensuring that reliable, efficient and safe power is available when it’s needed most. With unparalleled knowledge of electrical power management across industries, experts at Eaton deliver customised, integrated solutions to solve our customers’ most critical challenges.
