What is the difference between IPS and UPS? IPS and UPS are the same device? If not the same, what is the work and which work should be used? This post will clear all your doubts about IPS and UPS.

What is UPS?

An uninterruptible power supply or UPS is an electronic device that stores electricity and supplies it to other devices. UPS is used to maintain power supply to computers, refrigerators or televisions in the absence of electricity. 

UPS differs from IPS again. UPS is an emergency power system that provides uninterrupted power. That is, as soon as there is a power outage, the UPS becomes active.

A UPS is a temporary power source that supplies the power stored in its battery to connected devices in the event of a sudden power outage. The load of the main device is directly connected to the UPS, i.e. the power supply to the device is through the UPS and it acts as the main power supplier in case of power outage.

What is IPS? 

Everyone has more or less idea about what IPS is. IPS or Instant Power Supply is a device that stores power like a UPS and supplies it in the absence of power. However, like UPS, IPS does not activate as soon as the power goes out, instead it takes 1 to 10 seconds for IPS to come online. But where UPS provides short duration backup, IPS has much more backup capacity.

IPS supplies electricity to appliances like TV, fan, etc. in the office or home. Nowadays, from personal to workplace, IPS is used everywhere.

Difference between UPS and IPS

On the face of it, UPS and IPS may seem similar as both devices provide emergency power. However, there are considerable differences between UPS and IPS. Let's learn about the difference between UPS and IPS.

These are the differences between UPS and IPS. Hope you have learned the differences and similarities of the two devices from this post. If you have any other query related to this you can let us know in the comment section.

The full form of UPS is Uninterruptible Power Supply. The full form of IPS is Instant Power Supply.
In the case of UPS, the current comes directly from the line, is first converted from AC to DC and then charges the battery. After the battery is charged, the DC current is converted back to AC and supplies power to connected devices. As the current comes from AC, no change in frequency is seen.  The IPS directly charges the battery and supplies power at the same time. The sensor in the IPS always checks whether the power is coming from the mains supply, in the absence of which the battery is triggered and starts working.
In the case of UPS, the power from the mains battery to the device can take milliseconds that are invisible to the eye, resulting in no visible response. As this response time is slightly longer for IPS, it makes sense that the IPS is active after a power outage. But nowadays this limitation can be removed by modern technology.
The power of UPS is usually 2 kVA (KvA). IPS power is 16 kVA or more. 
In case of UPS you will see the voltage regulation which is set to 220 most of the time. In case of IPS the output voltage is equal to the mains voltage.
A typical current supply is a 100% sine wave, which can be somewhat like a square wave in the case of a UPS. The output of IPS is like a step wave. ie IPA and UPS, no device has pure sine wave output, but regulator failure is common in case of IPS.
UPS is used in computers, routers, modems, etc. IPS is used for continuous power supply in home or office.
Battery capacity of UPS is relatively low. The battery capacity of IPS is relatively high.
UPS is available at relatively low cost. Cost is relatively high in case of IPS.
