Meet MikroTik’s mUPS – your router now has a battery-backup sidekick!

With the MikroTik mUPS your network is no longer doomed in a power outage. Increase the reliability and uptime of your MikroTik equipment in the event of a power disruption with the mUPS PoE injector with built-in battery backup.   How does it work? The mUPS, an outdoor PoE injector with battery backup capability, functions like a Gigabit PoE injector, but when power is lost, it switches over to the 12 V battery. Due to the wide operating voltage of MikroTik RouterBoards the router will not reboot when switching from your main power source to the 12V battery backup.   MikroTik’s mUPS makes your network more reliable and provides a backup in situations where power may not be reliable. The transparent switchover to the mUPS allows for no disruption and no added stress. For a simple, compact device, the added benefits and reliability is a definite must for your MikroTik...

Without surge protection your equipment could be at risk! – Find out more here.

South Africa is high on the power surge scale, prone to lightning and constant power cuts; this makes it particularly vital to have a surge protection solution in place. The high frequency of power surge fluctuations has the potential to damage your electrical equipment.   What are power surges?   Power surges are fast, temporary spikes in voltage within an electrical circuit. These surges, which are unavoidable, occur when something boosts the electrical charge at some point in the electrical circuit. These surges, or spikes, are not only caused by lightning but also:   Electrical switch gear Electrical motors Tripped circuit breakers Faulty wiring Electrical power generation machines Faults in the equipment of the utility company Short circuits in your wiring system Below is a diagram illustrating the waveform of a normal mains supply and that of the same supply experiencing electricity spikes.   Why care about an electrical power surge?   When the electricity spikes, it causes a sudden flow of excessive heat, this can burn the wire and any components connected to it. Power surges have been responsible for damage to homes and appliances, as well as some structural fires. Surge protection is more important than ever because today’s devices, such as microprocessors, are much more sensitive to power surges than the less sophisticated equipment of previous generations. MiRO has a full range of products that can assist you in preventing damage to your valuable electrical appliances and devices!   Click Here for MiRO’s full range of Surge Protection...
