UPS and GC-MS? Yes, no?

Currently, our instrument park consists of a 7200B GC-QTOF and a 7890/5977B GC-MSD; There is an ongoing discussion in-house regarding the installation of a centralized UPS system, and we have been asked if we want our instruments attached. As far as I know a few years ago Agilent did not recommend using UPS power backup systems in connection with GC-MS. Is this still true? We are not so much worried about uptime and sample throughput, but the health of the instruments (especially the turbopumps) in case of power failures (which are not unheard of at our location...).
