Single phase/3 phase
UPS’s come in two different formats, single phase and 3 phases. Both are designed to protect business power supplies from unexpected events that can affect technical equipment, but both forms of UPS work for different environments
If you’re not electrically minded, think of 1 (Single) phase power like a one pedal bicycle where one (pushing leg) provides power and 3 (Three) phase power like a three-cylinder engine where three (pushing pistons) provide power.
A single-phase UPS are used in sites/businesses where power requirements are less than 20kVA. They are usually a practical and cost-effective solution to applications with low kVA requirements such as small businesses, homes and satellite offices.
A 3 phase UPS is used for applications with high kVA requirements due to their ability to distribute large quantities of power over a larger area/distance. Their uses are for sites such as data centres, large buildings, industrial facilities and medical or transport-affiliated services and not for smaller businesses and home users.
A UPS is an important tool for all businesses and home users, however deciding which may be most beneficial to you can be difficult. It is important to choose a UPS that will work for you or your business in the future. At TCS, we can help you determine the best solution for your business and ensure a safe and secure implementation.
Whether you’re setting up a new office for the first time, or simply wish to upgrade a few lights around your space, TCS can provide you with the right lighting solution for your business office.
We can supply a great variety of styles, as well as LED lights, downlights, fluorescent batten lights and integrated LED panel lights. We also stock pendant lights and a variety of accessories such as anti-virus panels ideal for clinical office environments and schools.
For warehouses and large commercial spaces, industrial-style lighting can offer the perfect level of illumination and protection. Specific areas within one location often require different bulbs, but TCS will be able to supply everything you could ever need.
We offer lighting solutions for all kinds of warehouses and commercial areas. For premises with high ceilings, opt for powerful high bay LED bulbs. Not only will they cut down energy costs, they’ll make sure pesky shadows don’t occur either. Anti-corrosive LED batten lights are perfect for exposed outdoor areas too, withstanding wear and tear without the need for regular maintenance.
The aisles and open spaces of warehouses, storage facilities, logistics/distribution centres etc. require adequate illumination from lighting systems such that:
- Stored items can be easily identified
- Staff & vehicles (e.g. – forklift trucks) can navigate through aisles safely
- The risk of accidents and damage is minimised
The recommended internal lux levels (lux being a defined measurement of light intensity) that needs to be produced by the warehouse lighting system will vary depending on the exactly the type of building and the work carried out inside. Some relevant lux level examples as defined by CIBSE are reproduced below:
- Large item & bulk stores – 100 lux
- Loading bays – 150 lux
- Unpacking/sorting areas – 200 lux
- Packing & dispatch areas – 300 lux
Floodlights for many years have been a great security option for both homes and commercial properties. They also have many other practical usages all over the world from lighting sports fields to illuminating the signage of shops and businesses.
What are you looking for in a floodlight?
The ability to turn itself on and off?
If you don’t want to worry about turning your floodlights on and off every day then you will want a ‘Dusk till Dawn’ type solution. These lights are a hassle-free way to save energy. They have a photocell sensor that measures light so they can turn themselves on automatically at dusk and then off again at dawn.
To sense movement?
If you want something to help scare away intruders or to simply light up business premises, then why not go for a PIR (passive infra-red) movement sensor floodlight? These lights are a clever and a very economical way to light the exterior of your property.
Are you looking for something economical?
If you are looking for the most cost-effective option for your business then you need to consider, what the light is going to be used for? LED technology is obviously the cheapest option if the lights are to be left on for long periods of time. However a light may be more cost effective if the light is only needed when people are close by.
Outdoor wall lights have loads of applications both in terms of style and functionality. They are a great and simple way to add an extra layer of security, while at the same time making your business safer for people leaving and entering during dark weather.
However exterior wall lights also have lots of aesthetic applications as well. They can be used as accent lighting to bring out the form of your premises. You can also use them to highlight an attractive feature near the office.
What are you looking for in an outdoor wall light?
A light that can turn itself on and off?
You may be looking for a practical light that can turn itself on when the sun goes down and off again in the morning. If so, you will want a ‘Dusk till Dawn’ type solution.
Are you looking for something cost effective?
If you like to keep your eyes on the pennies and on your carbon footprint then we can suggest and install LED lighting. Alternatively, we can supply Low Energy Lights which are another excellent way to save money and the planet.
