Safeguarding power supplies

Sep 19, 2012 | UPS & Standby Power

Having suffered a recent power outage, Wootton Bassett-based Plantronics, a manufacturer of headsets, is now ensuring the reliability and continuity of power to its data centre by installing a power support system from shentongroup.
shentongroup has provided the company with a complete turnkey solution including generator, installation work, commissioning and ongoing service and maintenance.

Like most companies today, Plantronics relies on a reliable power supply for all its communication, such as telephone and ICT. Therefore, protecting the data centre and its air conditioning system against power outages was crucial, as any powercut would have a detrimental effect on the running of the company.  
To ensure that there is no break in power, shentongroup engineers specified a 110kVA generator and 200A AMF changeover panel. The generator has been placed on a concrete base, also supplied by shentongroup, and is enclosed in a security cage. It is supplied with an SNMP adaptor, weather-proof super-silent canopy and is equipped with an integral fuel tank. To ensure the consistent reliability of the generator, Plantronics has contracted with shentongroup to supply its Powercare24 service agreement which it is supplying free of charge for the first year.
