What kind of UPS? A static inverter? Most UPSes just feed the line
through until it goes out of range, and then it switches (within 8-10
ms) to the output of the inverter.
And even when on inverter, the output voltage regulation isn't all that
hot, unless you've got a special inverter. A 5-10% variation in voltage
from an inverter/UPS wouldn't be surprising.. (why should they try to do
better.. the goal is to keep the equipment on, not serve as a voltage
