PowerSource 400

One of the items that UPS brought me today, was a PowerSource 400.

I already had one of these backing up my DSL modem, router, VoIP ATA and cordless phone base, which I had acquired last January....a month after the icepocalypse. And, I was happy with how well it worked, that I had been thinking of getting it to replace another UPS that had failed in my living room.

I still haven't replaced it, but I'll probably get another refurbished SmartUPS for there.

Anyways...having a UPS in the bedroom has been something that I've been thinking of...but the concern has been the noise a UPS makes when the power is out. I have heard of some people drilling holes from adjoining rooms to separate the bedroom from the UPS. But, it wasn't the kind of home improvement that I was interested in making at this point it time.

The idea for the UPS was to protect the pump for my Select Number bed. Even though it isn't supposed to deflate if it loses power, and it was plugged into a surge protector. I think the last 'failure' was connected to the way Westar seems to like kicking my power off for 2-3 seconds every now and then. Now that I have a medical device connected, I thought about filing whatever with them that I have something...but doubt that it would get me anything. The other thing is the aircleaner in my bedroom....it is a 'soft' power switch...so when it loses power, it stays off.

Now with the CPAP, the desire to have a UPS in the bedroom seemed to become that more urgent to me.

Hi,

The noise from a UPS when the power goes out depends on the size. If you have a mid size UPS such as the Smart-UPS 1400 it makes a bit of noise from the transformer, but it’s definitely not unbearable. You can tuck it under the table and you’ll hear a light buzzing noise. The beeping can be muted by hitting the test button once.

Having a UPS on your Select Number Bed will make sure that it operates during a power outage and will protect it from power anomalies.

Having a good UPS is a priceless investment

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
