Capacitors are a critical component
of UPS systems which degrade over time under normal UPS
operation. Failing capacitors can leak electrolyte,
which can disrupt electrical connections within a UPS
and can cause a shut down. One failing capacitor can
ultimately lead to failure of other capacitors working
in parallel. A capacitor failure can force the UPS into
bypass mode and send send unstable power to your other
Capacitors, like batteries, have a limited working life span. UPS capacitor replacement is advisable every 6 years, or even sooner, depending upon the UPS load. In many cases, capacitor failures are not detectable. At times, even multiple capacitor failures will not visibly affect UPS operation. That is why it is advisable to replace the capacitors before they fail.
It important to schedule preventative maintenance for your UPS system to be sure the capacitors (and batteries) are inspected and replaced as needed. Our approach is to replace the capacitors before they age to the point of failure. The FGC team is highly qualified to perform preventative maintenance services efficiently and safely across North America.
