Making the most of CertaUPS


CertaUPS is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) vendor, supporting businesses across the UK and Europe. CertaUPS has been tried and tested across all five continents, designed to the highest quality and performance. Offering unparalleled knowledge in the emergency power market.

The CertaUPS proposition beats its competitors across important areas such as unit cost, warranty and service. The products are British-made and stocked in the UK with next-day replacements available as part of their three-year warranties scheme.


When it comes to UPS systems, the emphasis recently has been on remote monitoring and identifying where backup power fits in the advancing cloud landscape. There has been a lot of noise suggesting that because businesses are moving towards cloud data storage, they are also downsizing their need for backup power solutions. However, it is not as clear-cut as it may seem.

Whilst cloud data storage might mitigate the need for onsite hardware, we cannot avoid the fact that today’s businesses are reliant on technology and complex electrical infrastructures. From IT networks, telecom systems and security grids to Wi-Fi, lighting, and life safety equipment; all these electrical devices require a reliable, clean and continuous power source.


A UPS system protects electrical loads and devices from power disturbances and remains an essential piece of equipment.

  • A UPS system conditions power being supplied to electrical equipment.
  • A UPS system prevents damage to hardware caused by power anomalies such as inrush and spikes.
  • A UPS system enables the safe shutdown of networks, minimising downtime.


UPS monitoring has undergone rapid transformation, starting with simple system alerts to now offering sophisticated IoT monitoring solutions such as the one from CertaUPS, users can now benefit from complete proactive, remote UPS management.

IoT monitoring collects data from the UPS unit and sends it to a cloud-based platform to be analysed and processed. Users are then able to view real-time information, receive alerts and notifications and examine historical data for assessment and reporting.


In addition to predicted further developments in IoT monitoring, UPS manufacturers, including CertaUPS will be focusing on sustainability. Looking at component materials, supply chain and reducing carbon footprint.

The fundamentals of a UPS system: to provide uninterruptible power – will always remain the same. What will change is user approaches to achieving resilient, future-proof power protection strategies.


As a champion of single-phase Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), CertaUPS values the importance of knowledge sharing and is committed to educating and supporting its partners with technical and commercial experience. This is one of the reasons we love working with them, they always go above and beyond to ensure the best product advice is offered.

One particular area of focus has been on UPS redundancy. No matter whether you’re talking about hardware or software, any IT system should have built-in measures that guarantee it will continue to work if or when the unexpected happens.

The unexpected we’re talking about? Power failures, power surges, sags, spikes… all of which can have a major detrimental effect on business operations. They are unfortunately a regular occurrence in our modern-day electrical infrastructure so having a reliable battery backup is vital.

How can this reliability be achieved?

Introducing redundancy into the power protection system helps to minimise the interruptions caused by electrical disturbances or a complete power failure. It creates a level of fault tolerance that cannot be achieved otherwise, protecting sensitive IT systems and ensuring the continuation of operations regardless of the circumstances.


Josh Naylor, Divisional Manager, CertaUPS answers some common misconceptions around UPS.

“My business is too small to warrant power protection.”

  • Power problems are equal-opportunity threats. They hit large and small businesses alike.


“If you don’t purchase a well-known brand the batteries won’t be as good.”

  • CertaUPS doesn’t compromise on battery performance/longevity in order to offer a cheaper price. Our batteries provide market leading performance.


“Utility power is clean and reliable; I don’t need a UPS.”

  • Electrical power can vary widely enough to cause significant problems for IT equipment. Variations in power are commonplace which can seriously affect sensitive IT and telecoms equipment.


“I don’t need to monitor my UPS.”

  • Even with a UPS system, your IT system could still go down with an extended power failure or if the UPS is overloaded for too long. CertaUPS provide interactive software to allow you to monitor your UPS performance and provide scheduled shutdowns on sensitive equipment.


Purdicom’s partnership with CertaUPS began in July 2019 and we have gone from strength to strength together each year. The technology CertaUPS offer, perfectly complements all types of network deployments and this is what made it such an obvious decision to start a partnership with them.

CertaUPS and Purdicom have worked closely together since then, to build awareness of the exceptional product portfolio CertaUPS has to offer and in doing so have seen great success.
