Educational facilities from small nurseries and pre-schools to schools, colleges and universities all require power protection not just to protect against a host of power related issues but also help to condition power to smooth out spikes and either keep systems running or kick start an organised shutdown during power sags, brownouts or outages.
With many of today’s schools and universities needing to be operational 24/7, the need for resilient backup power solutions has never been greater. For example, universities often have specialist departments that require continuous power supply to preserve biological research work that can require refrigeration at a particular temperature – any fluctuations could result in lost research and ultimately years of work.
From an IT perspective, not only could work be lost if not saved when the power goes down, but with admissions and many examinations now processed electronically a loss in power would have a significant detrimental impact.
Power Control’s portfolio of power protection solutions from single phase through to standalone three phase and modular UPS systems offers superior resilience and operational efficiency for all areas of the educational spectrum.
Working with one of our premier partners NSSE Ltd, we have supplied, commissioned and now maintain two Borri B9600FXS 400kVA UPS systems.
Oxford University purchased the units to support an additional data centre located in the basement of the Oxford Molecular Pathology Institute, which is playing a critical role in hosting the University’s administration system as well as servicing over 50,000 active email accounts. The order was secured after NSSE Ltd, was able to demonstrate not only Power Control’s green credentials but also significant cost savings over comparable UPS equipment.
