Results of the review indicate, that in spite (or because), of the enormous quantity of material presented on the internet, someone looking for information to enable performing a simple market research before buying a proper UPS, is left after spending hours on the net, with very limited knowhow. Too tiny to make a decision, or give a feeling of reasonable and justified decision.

To provide a solution, a decision was accepted to present on UPSonNet's website a directory of UPS systems. The directory includes systems offered by industry main manufacturers according to different topologies and locations.

A standard 1000VA UPS designed to support 700Watt load, is now requested to support 950 Watt Load.
Most systems however specify in sales literature only VA figure. In numerous cases, additional digging is required, to reveal products Wattage rating.
To provide a simple, fast and comprehensive ability to see at a glance, both the forest and the trees, UPSonNets directory presents a table of category systems from main manufacturers, indicating sizes of individual systems both in VA and Watts.
Each individual system links directly to proper Manufacturer's specification data sheet, providing essential technical data, such as efficiency, size, and backup time, needed to compare systems and check conformance to needed requirements.
