An average UPS logs approximately 61,320 operational hours annually. Biannual preventive maintenance visits record the performance specifications of approximately 4 of those hours, in essence, leaving your critical support equipment unverified 99.999945% of the time. Furthermore, most PM visits are scheduled during the least critical time of facility operation. Diagnostics reported during such time frames will not coincide with normal operational activity and load demands. Standard UPS maintenance practices have been based on these snapshot reports of limited activity.
The annual maintenance plans have allowed equipment owners to safely budget for the complete maintenance of their asset equipment, including any necessary repair. It has also allowed for failure reduction by scheduling for regular inspection, cleaning and adjustments which slows the process of operational deterioration. What maintenance programs have not supplied is Prevention.

Is DigITech monitoring?
By the dictionary definition, yes. However, if referencing other “monitoring” devices offered in conjunction with UPS systems, DigITech’s capabilities far exceed all other options. Commonly referenced monitoring systems are actually no more than standard alarm devices. Once your equipment is broken or a significant event occurs, you will then be notified. DigITech will notify you and/or your chosen service provider when your system begins to operate even slightly outside its normal specified parameters. Therefore, you are warned of an incurring problem prior to unit failure.
DigITech is courteous.
DigITech will only interrupt you if an emergent event occurs. If your facility experiences a power outage and complete transfer to critical support equipment is performed flawlessly, DigITech can be setup to simply email you with the event notification rather than waking you in the middle of the night to inform you that everything at your facility is functioning properly.
