    Dear sifus,

    Would like to have your opinions as to where to get outdoor UPS/Backup power that are suitable for outdoor use.
    Save they have such units in Yamakoshi and Atarikoi (TELETRON & PEMS) complete with a canopy, but am wondering any sifus here use them before and can attest to their reliability?

    As for genset, something to consider too actually. Thinking of just getting UPS first :).

    I am using PEMS now ...so far so good ... since i just used a few months back ... had not work before during emergencies ... so i dont know how long it lasts ... its with complete set and water proof with a lock ... so its safer at outdoor with a shelter ofcoz ... but its quite costly ... Maybe can follow bro. Idris idea ... can DIY and save cost ;-)
    Rearing Nishikigoi are very interesting ... Just observe their development ... Everybody loves them =)

    Bro KahHoe,

    I asked Atarikoi at Tropicana on the PEMS unit siap with Canopy. Approximately 1.7k. N60 Batt. For the Teletron, is about 1.8k.

    I also asked my DataCenter Genset/UPS contractor (where I work), they told me those things can be obtained from Jalan Pasar. Have actually made a quick visit there, but can't find it.

    Mine i bought at almost that price too ... but without battery ... but that battery can obtained from Rm 100 ++ to 300 ++ .... depends on what type u buy .... for that one u say obtained from Jln Pasar ... I think is like those used for backup electronic items such as computers and Tv ... not that sure ... i think i saw b4 last time ... but u have to do casing urself ... Maybe anyone use b4 ... can help u 8->

    Bumping up an old thread on same subject. Can someone advice me; if I just want a UPS to power my hiblow pump of 60W and the whole unit will be in a sheltered area (almost like indoor), what can I use? May I also know the price and where I can get such unit from?

    Also if I could have a better option for such a setup.

    Hi Bro Pandai,
    UPS is expensive. The inverter units shown are probably enough. Alternatively, consider a gen set.

    Only problem with gen sets is that auto starting units start at around 5-10 kVA. Takes up space.If you have the space, put a bigger unit (buy recond to keep the cost down) and power the whole pond, aircond in the house and fridge.

    Small units can be same as pasar malam type. robust, cheap but noisy like hell and you need to start it manually. New skill for the maid.

Howdy, Stranger!
