UPS devices use batteries to keep the computer running for a period of time after a power failure. UPS devices usually provide protection against power surges and brownouts as well.that connects to your computer using a serial cable for your computer, you can use the UPS service UPS service
A service that manages an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) connected to a set options for its operation using Power Options in Control Panel. The UPS tab in Power Options enables you to control how the UPS service works on your computer. The UPS settings available depend on the specific UPS hardware installed on your system. The settings can include options such as:

The serial port where the UPS device is connected.
The conditions that trigger the UPS device to send a signal, such as a utility power failure, low battery power, and remote shutdown by the UPS device.
The time intervals for maintaining battery power, recharging the battery, and sending warning messages after power failure.
