What Is The Difference Between A Decentralized Configuration And A Centralized Configuration?

In a centralized UPS configuration, a larger UPS supports multiple locations or a group of equipment from a single point. Centralized UPSs are often hardwired into an electrical panelboard.

A decentralized configuration allows each UPS to protect a handful of devices or a single piece of equipment. Decentralized UPSs are usually plug and play using plugs and receptacles.
