I have a single 15kVA UPS from Always On running two mass specs. We've been
very happy with it, though I couldn't tell you how much it cost.

Subject: Re: [ISOGEOCHEM] UPS recommendations?
I'll second the recommendation for the Toshiba 1600 UPS units. I have two
of them and they've carried us flawlessly through numerous small power
outages. Our Delta-V doesn't blink and keeps working while I spend the next
20 minutes bringing our non-UPS equipped Delta-S back to life. In the
future, every new instrument gets a UPS...
I bought the last one in early 2015 for around $6500. I specified exactly
what I wanted and our university purchasing department sent out a request
