In the land of the blind, the one eye king rule…
So, i was called into our “server backup Power” meeting. I had to sit in because i did my house inverter, so now im the “power expert” in our company. (instant upgrade)
Ive recommend the Victron MP5000, and lithium batteries. mainly because of the service, and the abuse the Victron can take. and lithiums because of the 10 year warranty. (almost a fool proof setup)
So Basically, Invertor → UPS → server room (UPS batteries are going to be replace)
The installer wanted to give us a mecer 5000va and 4x200a deep cycles.
With the server and POE camera’s on there and network switches, Nothing Major, and 10 “Till points” it should be fine (We are going to do an energy audit before anything takes place)
they also want to put on 10 laser printers. (normal HP 1320’s) if im not wrong.
That is what got me worried. I know that Laser printers draw alot of amps when it kicks on(very similar to a fridge) but my question is, how much?
Did any body measure this before?
