On-Site UPS Upgrades & Replacements

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.

       

 

   

Why Replace Your UPS

 

  • It has reached the end of its lifecycle. Mitsubishi Electric UPS have a life expectancy of 15-20 years. However, even with a consistent and thorough maintenance schedule, over time, uninterruptible power supplies will begin to wear down. Exposure to dust, heat and moisture can also impact the lifetime.
  • More efficient options are available on the market. Over the past few years, several technological advancements have been made to enhance the efficiency and performance of UPS and UPS batteries. A UPS upgrade or retrofit may be able to provide greater efficiency and reduce expenses in a smaller footprint.
  • It is at capacity. This could make you a candidate for UPS expansion. If you're at load capacity and concerned with overloading your UPS, it could be time to add on to ensure you have full coverage if power goes down.

UPS Upgrade or Expansion vs. Replacement

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 –

  • You want to accommodate an advancement in technology
  • We need to come in and replace a part nearing the end of its lifecycle, or
  • You need an updated battery cabinet (Interested in increasing the size of your batteries or transitioning from an alternative battery solution to traditional lead acid batteries?)

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.

When to Replace Your UPS

 

While a UPS can last up to 20 years, we recommend evaluating a UPS replacement every 10 years. We can access performance and determine what's needed to maintain or improve your UPS.

 

Don't wait until your system fails to consider a new one. 

Keep your critical power infrastructure performing efficiently and prepared for emergencies.

 

We consider a number of factors:

 

  • What is your current load capacity? If loaded between 25-80%, you're probably OK - over 80%, it's trying to carry too much and may run out of capacity or overload the system (A UPS expansion could help solve this problem).
  • What is your efficiency rating against newer models? Have you already replaced batteries but are still under-performing?
  • Does it leverage obsolete parts that can no longer be repaired or replaced?
  • Can we recommend a product with technological advancements that will better meet the needs of your company?
