UPS Battery Cabinet Replacement

Options to consider when retrofitting an existing data center.

End of Life Equipment Replacement Considerations

As a general rule, the life expectancy for an uninterruptible power supply is between 15 and 20 years.  When it is time to replace your UPS, you may want to consider replacing your backup energy storage equipment as well, as it may make sense to upgrade other areas when conducting a retrofit.  Some thought should be given to the following

  • Is the retrofit project intended to be a replacement, expansion, or new solution?
  • What is your budget for the project? Note that in addition to CapEx, maintenance costs for the life of the product should be considered. 
  • What space is available?
  • Are there existing problems you are trying to solve?  Insufficient runtimes and insufficient power are two common concerns, and increasing either will likely require more floorspace.

Upsizing Batteries

The primary reason for upsizing batteries is to gain additional runtime.  This will likely necessitate purchasing batteries possessing larger dimensions, so the availability of physical space will need to be addressed immediately.  Additional considerations include compatibility of connectors, the possibility of re-wiring, and necessary cable size.
