OPTIONS for Solving Power Quality Problems
If you suffer from Brownouts or Sags, the best solution is to install either an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS system) that can carry your load for the duration of the problem, or a power conditioner.
If you are faced with longer brownouts or Blackouts, you can augment your UPS or power conditioner with a generator or a longer run battery cabinet. Please contact us to ask about the pro's and con's of the different solutions.
If you suffer from spikes, surges or other transients, it is imperative that you protect your facility with Surge Protective Devices or SPD's. We strongly suggest that you start at the main building entrance, and include an SPD at each distribution panel or load center.
If you have noise issues on the line, we can do a grounding audit to check that your ground is effective and robust. In addition to that we have a series of filters and power conditioners that will clean up the power before it hits your sensitive equipment.
If your facility is plagued with an overvoltage condition you can protect your loads with transformers, power conditioners, or we can help you deal with the utility to get some resolution to your issues.
One of the most common issues we run into is problems that are the result of harmonics. If that is the case, we can help you find the causes, and mitigate or update the equipment at is throwing additional harmonics onto the line. We can also utilize harmonics mitigating transformers, filters and power conditioners to protect your critical equipment.
Please feel free to call us to come visit your facility and discuss any issues that you are facing.
