Answer

Selecting an Uninterruptible Power Supply for your Epilog Laser System

Spring is a time for many things, including unpredictable weather. While many people have battery backup for clocks, computers and other important devices, many don’t think of taking this important precaution when it comes to their laser. No one wants to lose a whole project because of an unexpected power outage, so here we’ll discuss what an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is and how to choose one for your laser system.


An uninterruptible power supply/source (UPS) is an electrical device that provides a limited amount of emergency power to a piece of equipment when the input power source fails. Because it provides instantaneous protection from power interruptions, a UPS is not the same as an emergency power system or generator. The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (usually less than 30 minutes), but it’s long enough to properly pause (or sometimes complete) a job and shut down the laser.
So what type of UPS will you need for your laser?

The chart below includes all of Epilog’s past and current laser systems and their maximum power consumption figures. UPS devices are all marked to indicate the power consumption they can accommodate. Prior to selecting your UPS make sure it can accommodate the maximum power consumption for your laser system.
