RE: 10 things you should know about deploying a UPS
It is a common myth that UPS units protect against all surges. In fact: Transient voltages are known to reach in upwards of a million volts in micro seconds. These particular spikes are typically caused by internal/external switching of loads (heavy equipment) or external electrical grid fluctuations. Hint: Do you have surge suppression in installed? No, I'm not talking about your $40,000 UPS system or some end user protection device. I am referencing the fact that surge suppression is needed at the electrical switchboard level and on your critical electrical panels. Lightning can travel through the ground right into your branch panel. If your building is not properly grounded in a loop, expect this scenario to happen today and get some surge suppression.
