I've got an office LAN setup with about 15 computers, which is due to expand to 30 before long. Each computer is on its own voltage stabilizer and UPS.
I live in a place with horrible, substandard, screamingly bad electricity. The voltage coming down the wires can dip as much as 30% below the advertised 220V, causing all of the voltage stabilizers to cycle hard, and sometimes (up to 5 times daily) the whole system shorts out and has to be reset at the source.
Obviously, I'm starting to lose components here and there, which, given the current trend, will be quite costly soon.
I'd like to put in a medium-scale upstream solution that levels the curve before it hits my poor stabilizers and power supplies but I'm not sure where to start. Could someone elaborate on what could be the cause of these surges (are they surges?), and a medium scale solution?
To put it another way, someone in another post said "Bottom line - I think you need something to smooth your electricity." What is that something?
