Consistent power is a necessary component to ensure operations run smoothly in all facets of business. However, industrial applications are especially vulnerable to harsh operating conditions where any loss of power can have devastating impacts.
For manufacturers, an outage lasting mere seconds has the ability to significantly impact the entire assembly line──damaging machinery, materials and final products. Even more, the time and expense of ensuing restarts can further adversely affect a business’ bottom line.
Power loss at water and wastewater facilities can result in pump failures or pressure losses that can discharge contaminants into source water supplies; back up sewage into homes and businesses; lead to cascading infrastructure failures; and allow contaminants to enter the drinking water distribution system from surrounding soil and groundwater.

Because gas pipelines have compression and decompression points with sensitive equipment, they require a reliable, secure power supply. Meanwhile, offshore oil platforms need power protection solutions that are capable of withstanding exposure to the elements. Most of the UPSs in this sector have exceeded their recommended lifespan, yet digitization now makes it easy to justify a UPS upgrade.
