PAUL ANTON: POWER SOLUTIONS

An emergency lighting unit (ELU) is an electrical apparatus composed of an inverter, rectifier and transformer that provides emergency power to a load when the input power source fails to provide power electrical systems, such as mains power.

This is achieved through interconversion of AC & DC power source from accompanied batteries, resulting in a clean power source preventing interruptions in power in the event of a loss of power and protecting against electrical damage to sensitive equipment from power sags and surges. Energy systems are liable to power outages/interruptions at any point and thus a UPS is characteristically used to protect electrical equipment where unexpected power disruption could cause severe data loss, business disruption or service failure and maintain safe and proper functionality of critical equipment.

Paul Anton Ltd strives to provide top quality, safe power solutions tailored to suit all your power protection needs and will endeavour to ensure your power is uninterrupted and protected.

ELUs can be divided into two categories:

Single-Phase

  • “Single-phase systems refer to the use of a single input source and a single output source (1:1) to electrical equipment, examples of which would include the supply of power from 230/240VAc three-pin UK sockets. Single-phase supplies are used to operate small power hardware such as rack-mounted servers, telecoms, network switches, computer systems or any device running from a standard three-pin UK plug.
  • A single-phase ELU is used to sites/businesses where power requirements are less than 20kVA. They are usually a practical and cost-effective solution to applications with low kVA requirements such as small businesses, homes and satellite offices.”

Three-Phase

  • “Three-phase systems refer to the use of all three phases which are generated from the National Grid. A three-phase electrical system refers to an electrical supply comprised of three individual sine waves installed as a three-wire configuration (or three-wire with a neutral) as input sources to the electrical equipment. The output tends to be three-phase (3:3) but can also be singular (3:1).
  • A three-phase UPS is used for applications with high kVA requirements due to their ability to distribute large quantities of power over a larger area/distance. Their uses are for sites such as data centres, large buildings, industrial facilities and medical or transport-affiliated services.
