A UPS is an electronic controlled system that provides power from a stored energy source,
usually batteries, for a limited period of time during a power failure.
Why Are Ups’s Used?
Power failures and related problems such as power glitches and surges cause about 80%
of computer failures. An unexpected power failure can cause serious problems. Industrial
and mining processes need back-up power for critical load applications. A power
failure which occurs at such companies often disrupts their complex production process
which in turn causes a significant loss of income and even life threatening situations.
Penbro manufactured UPS units range from 3-20kVA with 1-ph output and from 10-60kVA
3-ph output. Penbro also distributes a supreme range of European designed static UPS’s ranging
from 300VA line-interactive to 3MVA on-line, double conversion systems.

and added distribution features in the enclosure.
In South-Africa load shedding has and can still become a daily reality in many parts of the country.
We have been in the business of protecting critical equipment for many years and know the expenses involved
and damage caused by loss of data due to power supply failures.
Dynamic (Rotary) UPS - Hitzinger:
Combined with a diesel engine, switch gear, filter choke and “high-tech” control, the end result
is the most reliable form of uninterrupted power source (rotary UPS) available.
Penbro rotary UPS systems are located in several countries of Southern Africa such as Tanzania and Melawi.
Each system was negotiated from tender stage to its commissioning by our specialist team.
For projects of this magnitude, we are proud to offer pre-consultancy services, installation and
commissioning, and a 24-hour standby service for an annual maintenance contract. Calculated life
cycle costing analysis proves that these UPS systems are the most economical solution to reliable power.
In hospitals, airports and in many other areas where people’s lives are at stake and safety is of the
utmost importance, it is necessary that an uninterrupted power source be installed. The minimum requirement
for South Africa is an AC power generator with a capacity sufficient to maintain all human life support
systems present in a hospital.
The most economical and robust form of power supply is a Genset.
