Considering that the Houston area is no stranger to lightning and thunderstorms, it isn’t surprising that Alamo Tamales was experiencing damaging power surges at its restaurants. While lightning is one of the most common instigators of surges, the harmful anomalies also originate from other sources, including utility switching and internal load switching. In fact, one of the most common sources of surges is the turning on and off of power-hungry appliances such as refrigerators, motors and air conditioners.
The restaurant needed a solution to safeguard its sensitive electronic equipment against the damaging effects of the routine surges and help reduce costly downtime associated with the them.
“The consequences of downtime to the business are significant, including loss of product, loss of customers, and loss of employee’s hours and productivity.”
“I no longer have to worry that our freezer and refrigerator breakers will trip in the middle of the night.”
“Our Eaton representative was a great help and made the process of determining what we needed very easy.”
