Back-up power

This past weekend, I had some parts running on the SLA machine, and apparently
there was a power outage during the build. Monday morning, then machine was
off with the zephyr bar sitting idle in the middle. Subsequently, the laser
took a looooonnnngggg time getting warmed up, and I had to redefine where the
laser scanned the sensors. The whole process was 3 hours of lost time.
        Does anybody know of a good backup power system, or something that will
gradually turn the machine off in case of another power failure?
