Mar 13 '20 at 2:34 comment added hobbs @niran90 yes. Over-sizing a UPS system by a bit will be good for the longevity of the components and your batteries.
Mar 13 '20 at 1:37 comment added niran90 @hobbs Thanks for this information. I have seen many comments that suggest that I should add 50-60% to the peak load for "good measure". So I have been looking at UPSs with a 1500VA spec (1.2kW). Do you agree with this?
Mar 12 '20 at 23:47 comment added hobbs @niran90 you need the apparent power rating of the UPS to be more than the peak apparent power of the load — which you probably aren't told! In the case of the RM1000x, I can guesstimate it from the spec sheet to be 1260VA (1100W peak load, 88% efficiency at 100% load, 99% power factor because it has PFC). But the best way is to measure.
Mar 12 '20 at 9:36 comment added niran90 Thanks for your response! Could you perhaps tell me which rating I should be paying attention to while I keep searching? Do I need to match the 1kW-rating of the machine's power unit with the "real" or "apparent" power?
