“I didn’t Install Diesel Generator Because I Don’t Want to Make My City More Polluted” What Did He Do Then?

Mr. Devashish is the plant manager of a manufacturing factory called ‘Technic Firm’ located in Surat that is currently under construction.


The area that this factory is located in does not experience frequent power cuts. But since this was a manufacturing factory and it required nonstop power supply in case of emergency, Mr. Devashish wanted a backup system for this plant.

Mr. Devashish was a well-informed customer and he decided to go in for Su-kam inverters. Without much thought, he got in touch with our distributor located in Gujarat, Mr. Jignesh and asked for 3 systems to be installed in the factory – 15KVA Online UPS, 5KVA Colossal inverter and 2KVA Fusion inverter.

Su-Kam’s online UPS ranges from 1KVA to 100KVA and is designed and developed to provide uninterrupted power supply to small and large scale enterprises that makes it an excellent power back up option for areas affected with frequent power cuts.

Why Should You Choose an Online UPS?

The reason why an online UPS is called ‘online’ is because the batteries are ‘always’ connected to UPS so power transfers are not required. As in, no power transfer from mains mode to battery mode or battery mode to mains mode. So we can say there is zero change over time. But how is that useful? The online UPS is perfect for equipment’s that are highly sensitive to power switches. They shut down and cannot resume normal functioning in the situation of power transfers from mains to battery mode and vice versa.


Why Didn’t Devashish Opt for A Diesel Generator Instead?

A new study by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has found that cost of power generation from a DG set, including the capital cost, is Rs 27-33 per unit as compared to power generated from the electricity grid supply that is currently Rs 7.3 per unit in New Delhi.


And this is just the analysis of the cost difference. How else can opting for a DG set instead of a battery backup system be harmful?

In the past couple of months, air pollution in India is at an all-time high. The worst factor in air pollution is soot, generated from diesel generators/vehicles. NOx (NOx is a generic term for the mono-nitrogen oxides, NO and NO2 (nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide). They are produced from the reaction among nitrogen and oxygen. It reacts with moisture in the air to form nitric acid, which is inhaled deep into the lungs.

The Yale University’s Environmental Performance Index ranks India dead last, at 132 out of 132 countries! On the WHO’s index of cities with the worst soot pollution levels, 12 of the 30 are Indian cities.

I think it is time we start making some serious changes starting from our own home.


Other than that, a generator will lose its efficiency with time. They need periodic maintenance from authorized agencies which costs a lot more. You don’t really have to worry about that with an online UPS. Just install and forget.

Then our authorized distributor from Surat, Mr. Jignesh and his 3 expert service engineers installed the following –

Technical Specifications:

  1. Su-Kam’s Online UPS – 15KVA (3phase in-3phase out)
  2. SMF battery – 65AH/12V (13 batteries)
  3. Su-Kam 5KVA/48V Colossal inverter
  4. Su-Kam battery – 150AH 4 in number
  5. Su-Kam 2KVA/24V Fusion inverter
  6. Su-Kam battery – 150AH 2 in number


Load Running On Online UPS

This Online UPS system has been specially installed to power sensitive machines running in that firm. The 5KVA Colossal inverter will be powering other small scale equipment and the 2KVA fusion will be powering light load of the factory.

Mr. Jignesh says, ‘We have installed these systems in this factory after receiving specific requirement from the customer. That area does not experience power cuts. They just required battery back up in times of emergency and required different su-kam inverters for different load.’

We are glad to be of assistance to this firm.

After much consideration and demand for online UPS in the market, su-kam has recently launched an all exclusive solar online UPS. See this video to understand how it works –
