Voltage Regulation Solutions. Delivered.
We have solutions for power quality issues.
Every type of voltage fluctuation affects your operating equipment and controls. The voltage and current are never perfect and constant unless you have a correction device installed.
Many utility customers experience both voltage sags and also occasional short term loss of power. These momentary outages or short term loss of power may occur if utility reclosers operate in order to try to isolate faults on the line and to protect the balance of the utility network.
Power Analysis Solutions
Assessing electrical environments in a facility requires monitoring equipment. This is non-invasive equipment that can be set up at the service entrance or throughout the facility at the load centers.
Active Voltage Correction
Voltage and current are constantly changing in distribution systems. Your drives, boards and controls are constantly bombarded with voltage and amperage sags and surges.
Power Factor Correction
Inductive motor loads in a facility have the largest affect on Power Factor. Many manufacturing and processing facilities across industries have a Power Factor issue.
Industries we serve
Today’s industrial processes have become incredibly complex due to automation, computerization, greater equipment repeatability and reproducibility, and detailed quality control metrics. Many industrial facilities and manufacturing plants use variable frequency drives, electric motors, and other types of production components that contribute to a harsh electrical environment … in other words, “bad power.”
Medical-grade “power quality” refers to all electrical environment issues that affect the performance and reliability of medical imaging and treatment equipment, as well as I.T. networks prevalent in hospitals and imaging/treatment centers. And as such, medical-grade “power quality” cannot and must not be compromised. Healthcare industry experts believe that as many as 75% of electronics-based equipment disruptions and failures are attributed to “power quality” issues. What would it mean to your hospital or healthcare facility if 7 out of 10 equipment problems could be prevented?
The oil and gas market encompasses drilling sites, petrochemical plants, refineries, and pipeline distribution. In all cases, critical process controls exist together with telemetry electronics requiring clean, stable, uninterrupted power.
In the mining industry, most control functions are fully automated, including critical conveyor systems. Battery backup for the controlling server is a must … but not just any UPS will do!
In today’s commercial and retail facilities, it is important that the regulated voltage and backup power is supplied to protect critical operations and data. In addition to I.T. equipment in general, applications include surveillance cameras, security systems, and network communications. For retail, battery backup for point of sale protection is a must, including the network hardware responsible for communicating sales transactions.
The metal finishing market encompasses applications such as plating, electro-galvanizing, and anodizing. Chemicals are used to coat metal with a protective and/or decorative finish using an electrolytic process. Another application is to apply a thin layer of paint to a metal part by immersing it in a water-based solution containing a paint emulsion. This process is commonly known as e-coating. In all of these applications, DC power is applied to the metal, which causes the chemical or paint to condense onto the part.
Keeping schools and educational facilities running efficiently is critical in today’s society, and power quality plays an important role. Since computers and other electronic devices are now commonplace within classrooms and other school venues, there is certainly a requirement for clean power.
We’ve defined Emergency Lighting as one of the markets we serve. In fact, it represents a life safety requirement which is mandated by NFPA 101 – 7.9.2 for safe egress from any building, structure, or public space. This encompasses a long list of facilities and venues including schools, universities, sports arenas, theaters, shopping malls, hospitals, parking structures, industrial buildings, military bases, correctional facilities, and more.
The entertainment market is booming, and sophisticated electronics are being used to give us the experience we want. From the largest theaters, concert halls, casinos, and sports venues to broadcast studios and audio/video production, clean, noise-free power is required. Why? Electrical noise is a high frequency, low energy signal that travels on the power and ground lines of an electrical distribution system.
