What are Modular UPS Systems?

Modular UPS systems are an alternative to traditional UPS systems. While a traditional UPS system consists of a single tower with fixed battery banks and components, a modular UPS system takes a decentralized approach.

Modular UPS systems are made up of discrete, interchangeable modules and components. This includes separate power modules, battery modules, maintenance bypass modules, and more. These modules can be added, removed, or swapped as needed for maintenance or expansion.

The modules connect to operate in parallel, combining to provide the full capability of the UPS. This modular architecture provides a high degree of flexibility and customization.

Advantages of modular UPS:

  • Easily scalable capacity. Add or remove power and battery modules to scale up or down the UPS.
  • Simplified maintenance and repairs. Modules can be quickly swapped out for upgrades or to replace a failed component. Avoiding downtime.
  • Redundancy and high availability. With multiple replaceable modules, modular UPS systems have no single point of failure.
  • Longer equipment life;
  • Find parts for preventive and corrective maintenance;

Disadvantages of modular UPS:

  • Higher initial costs than traditional UPS of equivalent capacity.

Overall, the flexibility and maintainability of the modular design make it attractive for many data centers and mission-critical operations. Modular architecture allows you to scale power protection to meet your needs.

Benefits of Modular UPS

One of the main advantages of modular UPS systems is the ability to easily swap components as needed. This provides great benefits in terms of convenience, cost savings and extended equipment life.

Modular designs allow you to replace specific parts that fail without having to replace the entire UPS unit. This minimizes downtime as you don't have to wait for a complete system replacement. Instead, modular systems can be repaired by simply swapping individual components.

This component-by-component approach also leads to significant cost savings. Instead of going through the high expense of replacing an entire UPS, you only pay to replace the specific failed part. Over the life of the equipment, this really contributes in terms of reducing replacement costs.

Overall, the flexibility of modular UPS designs in allowing for easy component replacement offers major advantages in terms of convenience, cost and longevity. Companies no longer need to tolerate failures or settle for outdated equipment. The modular approach keeps operations running reliably while maximizing the equipment's lifetime value.

Reliability through rigorous testing and service

This leading UPS company prides itself on the reliability of its modular UPS systems. All equipment is thoroughly tested before leaving the factory to ensure it meets the highest quality standards.

The company's own in-house engineering and research and development teams design and manufacture modular UPS systems. By controlling the process from end to end, they can ensure consistent quality across all components.

Once installed, modular UPS systems are supported by the company's experienced maintenance and service team. With over 25 years in the UPS business, they have the experience to properly maintain systems and quickly resolve any issues.

Regular preventive maintenance helps maximize uptime and extend the life of your equipment. The team is available 24/7 for technical assistance contracts, responding quickly to any alerts or system outages.

Choosing this company's modular UPS solution provides assurance that the system will offer high reliability backed by rigorous testing and expert service. Customers can count on maximum uptime to keep their operations running smoothly.


RJM Nobreaks equipment offers excellent customization options to meet unique energy needs. Because the system uses autonomous modules that operate independently, it is easy to scale up or down by adding or removing modules as demands increase or decrease. This makes the equipment more flexible solutions.

In summary, the flexibility in sizing RJM Nobreaks equipment offers excellent customization advantages when compared to monoplate or on-board equipment. Businesses can get a system tailored to their exact needs that evolves seamlessly with future demands.


The equipment produced by RJM Nobreaks offers significant efficiency improvements compared to traditional UPS systems. Using modular components, RJM Nobreaks equipment can be precisely sized to the actual load requirements in a facility. This prevents oversizing and inefficient operation at partial loads. Topologies and component designs to reduce energy losses.
