Vision Express Sees Clear Benefits From New UPS Installation

The solution and results

It was imperative that the chosen UPS provided 100% reliable power resilience. Any power fluctuations and breaks in power could damage the company’s hi-tech lens equipment and conveyor belt system and result in £1000s of damage. Having purchased a number of Borri UPS units in the past to support various data centres across the country, Vision Express chose the Borri B9000FXS for its proven performance.

PCL also supplied an intelligent internal SNMP card for remote monitoring shutdown. For added peace of mind, all of the Borri three phase UPS systems are provided by PCL with a unique UK three year parts warranty, and so Vision Express benefited from this saving valuable time and money.

Working closely with one of its preferred electrical contractors, STP Solutions, PCL supplied, installed and commissioned the Borri B9000FXS within a matter of weeks. With a very short time frame to work within, precision planning was essential and both PCL and STP Solutions worked tirelessly to ensure the entire project was delivered seamlessly.

This was all achieved because PCL continues to be committed to Borri three phase UPS products and technologies and remains an official UK distributor for the Italian UPS manufacturer. PCL continues to receive direct manufacturing and technical support from Borri Spa whilst maintaining its high level of engineering involvement, which is supported by its all encompassing service and maintenance programmes and high UPS and product spares stock levels.

As the UK’s fastest growing UPS specialist, PCL also has an unrivalled maintenance repertoire and is renowned for its flexible contract solutions. Vision Express has been benefiting from PCL’s expansive maintenance services for a number of years and has taken out a three year, tailored gold maintenance contract for its latest UPS unit.
