Considering a UPS replacement or expansion? It's the perfect time to rethink your uninterruptible power supply. Mitsubishi Electric provides project planning and installation support when you need to replace your UPS.
Regular maintenance and battery replacement will extend the life and performance of your uninterruptible power supply. However, even the best constructed and maintained UPS will reach the end of its lifecycle eventually.
Read on to learn more about why and when you may need to update your UPS and how Mitsubishi Electric can help.

If you're not sure whether you need a UPS upgrade, expansion or replacement, Mitsubishi Electric can help! Our project planning and management team can review your company's needs while our engineers consider your current UPS specs. We'll pull all of this together to make a recommendation for you as to whether or not we feel we can upgrade your UPS with a retrofit or expansion, or if it's time for a new system.
For the first 3-5 years, proper UPS maintenance is all you should need to keep things running smoothly - unless you're running up against capacity concerns.
Additionally, you may need a battery replacement around years 5, 10, and 15.
There are three main reasons for a retrofit –
If capacity is your main concern, you may be able to add on rather than replace your UPS.
Many of our UPS products are designed to be modular, so you can add on or disconnect additional power supply units as needed to support your critical load and runtime requirements.
After 10 years, you may be due for a UPS replacement. While Mitsubishi Electric UPS have a life expectancy of 15-20 years, it’s wise to have a thorough check completed at 10 (10-15 years is the approximate end of the UPS product lifecycle, though well maintained systems may be able to last longer).
You’ll also likely discover a number of advancements since you last evaluated a UPS – we can help you sort through the changes and pick the best UPS replacement for your company’s requirements.
