UPS Damage by Power Commpany? Tags: Prebuilt Hard Drives Power Enclosure Systems Last response: July 22, 2010 6:15 AM in Systems Share kenny720 July 19, 2010 8:32:02 PM I have an APC Back-UPS XS 1000 UPS. It's in perfect working order, I just moved it to a place in NY. The power here in the summer is terrible. It's cost me 3 hard drives so far, and a fourth that's acting a little strange. Spread across 2 PC's and an enclosure. Power drops causing PC's to reset etc... _______________________ So anyway brought my UPS back with me from atlanta. Everything is working fine. It's been hooked up for about 6 hours, I've been in the room the last 2. It's kicking in at least once every 15 minutes, anywhere from 5-15 seconds. My question is: Is this going to screw up my UPS? Thanks, Kenny More about : ups damage power commpany jsc July 22, 2010 6:15:56 AM Don't know. In one respect, that's what UPS's are for. Conversely, that's a pretty extreme cycle pattern. But better to repair/replace the UPS than all the computer bits. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Will a power outage damage my pc when sut down BUT still pluged in?
