Ok Im going to start of by letting you all know in advanced that this is going to be a HARD question. There is NO logic in the issue.
We are a small Wire Harness company, www.alteksystemsinc.com
. We have 9 UPS for power back up on our small computer net work.
The problme has occured 2 times in 2 months. ALL nine UPS go off at the same time... they all blink a red light to indacate that the power has been lost and that they are on battery back up. From what I can tell they are on 3 diffrent circuts and they are spread through out our factory.
One of the UPS is on a PC based wire cutter.. basicly it is a small computer running windows 2k and a custom program to draw cable and cut it based on how long we need it.
Once the battery life is up we loose power.... today we lost 100% power to the file server, and teh wire cutter. I also have 1 UPS running our phone system, router, and swtich. That one lost power to once the battery life was drained....
WE didn't loose any power to our lights or other equpment. There was no "flicker". It seems as if they sockets still had electricty....
Please comment. Ideas, thoughts... what could it be?
All hte UPS are cheap $100 BELKIN and should keep a PC on for about 5min when we loose power.
