A business that relies on a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) system for load distribution during times of load dips and complete outage of incoming utility electrical feed need to ensure the proper 24/7 operation and maintenance of these systems. This will instill confidence and peace of mind when occurrences do occur from time to time.
Analyzing a Client’s Requirements
The right company can calculate the electrical load required to properly shut down electronic equipment and to provide emergency lighting to a building until power is restored or a site generator is up and maintaining the critical load.
The company may create a list of occurrences that could temporarily shut down the system. In some cases, the causes of potential power outages may include serious storms, voltage dips or a malfunctioning rectifier. Afterward, a contingency plan for handling each foreseeable risk will be created.
A Reserve Supply of Power
The technicians will be able to provide additional batteries, UPS systems and generators that can provide electricity in an emergency. Moreover, the company will give the client information about the total output capacity of each system and generator.
Monitoring Each Battery
The experts frequently utilize test equipment to record the capacity and overall health of every battery in each individual system. Furthermore, the business can analyze and record the amount of time that is required to fully charge each battery in the building.
Cleaning the Terminals
Over time, the battery’s terminals could begin to corrode, and many batteries that fail have been affected by corrosion. Experts may use wire brushes to remove the corrosion and apply dielectric grease in order to maintain good connection.
When batteries are placed in landfills, acid and lead can slowly seep from the cells and enter the water supply of a nearby city. In 1996, the EPA created regulations that require businesses to recycle batteries or to place them in designated sites that contain hazardous waste.
While removing worn batteries, the company will first connect the client’s equipment to an auxiliary source of electricity to ensure that the power supply is not temporarily cut. The enterprise will also catalog each step of the process, and the certified business can give the necessary documentation to regulatory organizations.
