Generators compared to GES Backup Power Systems

Some turn to generators for backup power solutions, but there is a better way…

Inverter with batteries

Battery and inverter

  • Very quiet operation
  • No air pollution
  • Requires no maintenance
  • Use solar power or Eskom power to charge batteries
  • Automatically and immediately supplies power when there is a power failure.
  • Clean safe power for expensive sensitive equipment such as medical devices and electronics.

Generators

12m

  • Can be very noisy
  • Cause air pollution an makes smoke.
  • Can be difficult to start
  • Must be kept filled up with fuel
  • Requires regular maintenance
  • Consumes a lot of expensive fuel
  • Can be complicated and dangerous to connect to home DB

GES Standard Backup Power Systems

The perfect backup power for your home, home office or small business…

GES Standard Backup Power Systems

Select the right system for your needs.

Step 1 – Select the right inverter for the amount of power you plan to draw at once.

GES Standard Backup Power System 1

This system will deliver enough peak power to power all the essential applications, such as:

  • TVs, Computers and Laptops, Lights

This will more than likely not provide enough power to power appliances, such as:

  • Kettles, Fridges and Freezers, Coffee machines, Microwaves, Toasters, Geysers, Pool pumps
GES Standard Backup Power System 2

This system will deliver enough peak power to power most applications, such as:

  • TVs, Computers and Laptops, Lights, Kettles, Fridges and Freezers, Coffee machines, Microwaves, Toasters and pool pumps.

This will more than likely not provide enough power to power appliances, such as:

  • Geysers, stoves and ovens

Please Note :

  • All our UPS Systems are compatible with solar power, so you can start with just the UPS and add solar later on.
  • All systems are scalable, so you can start with the smaller system and add another system later on to double up on the available peak power output.
  • Systems are integrated into your DB board.

Step 2 – Select the right amount of power for your needs.

Notes:
  • Available backup power calculated at 70% Depth of Discharge of the battery.
  • 20% losses taken into consideration
  • Capacity calculated at a rate of discharge equal to 10% of the battery capacity
Example of a Battery bank of 8 x 200Ah batteries:
Image-5-300x125

How much backup time will you have?

That depends on the amount of power you draw form the system. Use the table below to get an indication of the backup time you can expect form the different systems at different amount of power drawn…

DB Board integration / installation

Our backup power solutions easily integrate with your existing DB Board.
We recommend that a new DB board be installed that is dedicated for backup power circuits.

An extra earth leakage protection switch is installed in this new DB board.

Then certain existing circuits can be moved over to the new “backup power DB Board”.

Alternatively extra plugs can be installed in addition to the existing plugs.

What is required before the backup power system can be installed?
  • Your current electrical installation must be up to standard and have a valid certificate of compliance before we will install our backup power solutions. We can arrange this for you.
  • An assessment of exactly what equipment and circuits needs to be on backup power. The total load of all the equipment on the backup power equipment and circuits needs to be calculated, in order to stay below the maximum power rating of your chosen inverter. We can assist in this.
What if I have 3phase power supply, how does your system work with three phase supply?
  • One of the three phases will have backup power. The other two phases will have no backup power.
  • We recommend moving all the essential loads that must be backed up to this one phase. The high consumption equipment such as geysers, and ovens can be left on the other two phases…
What does installation of your backup power system involve?

  • Installation and connection of batteries
  • Installation of inverter
  • Wire to and from your existing DB board to the inverter.
  • Separate New DB board, next to your existing DB board,
    • This DB board will accommodate all your lights and plug circuits that you want to be on UPS.
  • Labelling and testing
Are there any extra costs involved?

There could be, depending on your installation. We will do a site assessment before installation begins, and notify you of this. Some extra cost can be involved for

  • Rewiring of existing circuits to new UPS DB board
  • Fixing any existing earth faults or other problems.
  • To install a new plug point is.
  • Rewiring of existing equipment, for example, stoves, pumps and air cons.
