Crash kits are handy collections of the spare parts and consumables in a UPS system that require repairing or replacing the most. These crash kits are held in secure and easily transportable flight case-style storage containers for fast access.
UPS crash kits can either be kept onsite for the most mission-critical environments, meaning they are ready and waiting when an engineer arrives to fix a fault, or quickly despatched by courier whenever the need arises.
Onsite crash kits are most common for sites and environments where downtime isn’t an option, such as data centres, hospitals, and industrial processing plants.
A crash kit includes everything that a service engineer needs to quickly get a faulty UPS system back online, such as:
- Manufacturer-specific circuit boards (i.e. rectifier, inverter, static switch, system board)
- Communications cards
