Back up power for your phone system January 16 2011

Back up power for your phone system is not only convenient when a thunderstorm rolls through, it also acts as a last layer of protection from surges, brownouts, and other minor power fluctuations and feeds a nice, clean 120v/60hz to your system. A UPS, or uninterruptibe power supply (also called a battery back-up) will extend the life of your system and protect it from “dirty” power. They do need the batteries changed out periodically – usually at 3 yr intervals, and the batteries are inexpensive.
