Industry's definitive technical guide to modern day high availability UPS solutions is launched

12 February 2008

Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd. (UPSL), the UK’s leading provider of critical power protection solutions, announces the launch of the third edition of the industry’s definitive guide to modern UPS and critical power protection solutions

The third edition of The UPS Handbook brings the reader fully up-to-date with the latest UPS technology and topology and sets the scene for the power protection industry over the next two to three years.

Since the second edition of The UPS Handbook was written in 2003, a great deal has changed in the UPS industry and in society at large. Consumers now demand services that are instantaneously and continuously available at a time when the mains power supplying these services is becoming less reliable and more expensive. When these demands are added to the calls for boardrooms to show greater corporate social responsibility, and protection of the environment is now on everyone’s lips, the power protection industry needed to respond with highly available, flexible and efficient products.
“In the same way that the development of transformerless UPS design revolutionised the UPS industry in the mid 1990s, modular UPS revolutionised the UPS industry in the mid 2000s” comments David Bond, co-author of The UPS Handbook.

“The second edition of The UPS Handbook, written in 2003, did cover three phase modular UPS technology but it did not cover it in the level of detail now considered essential by today’s system specifiers, designers and users. This is why the third edition of The UPS Handbook has been written”, adds co-author Peter Bentley.

The UPS Handbook is the power protection industry’s first, and most highly regarded, guide to understanding, designing and implementing UPS and power protection systems. The third edition of the Handbook has been extensively rewritten and new chapters have been added. The handbook is an easy-to-read, invaluable reference tool. It outlines optimum configurations for implementing the most reliable systems, using the latest space and energy saving technology. It is the most up-to-date and informative guide on how to build versatile, powerful and reliable UPS systems in the marketplace.

“This handbook is a must for any engineer, buyer or project manager involved in designing, implementing and maintaining UPS solutions”, concluded Bond.

The UPS Handbook is available for a limited time at a discounted rate of £30.00 directly from UPSL’s website ( (RRP £40).

The first 50 readers to visit the site will win a complimentary copy. To receive your free copy visit and enter offer code: 001(publication name)
