First: I am well aware of the limitations on UPS devices and laser printers.
Client is a financial firm that prints complex documents as part of their production activities. No documents printed = no fulfillment, no money. A critical business function.
These are large documents, like 200 pages. Currently they print out on an HP LaserJet 41xx with several paper trays/handlers attached. As I mentioned this is a critical business function.
The power grid has been problematic in their area recently. I just finished installing heavy-duty UPS devices on all their computers and VoIP phones. But what about the laser printer? If they can't print, then the whole thing is a bit of a waste.
Unfortunately they are located in a large office building that has no whole-building generator, and it would be impractical for them to get their own generator.
Some sort of UPS device for the laser printer? If so, how to size it? Is this practical? It was suggested to me that I use a marine battery and a power inverter. I've seen that done with certain powerful radio equipment. But is that the best solution?
Any input welcomed. Thanks in advance.
