It is essential that our emergency services continue to be operational, no matter what. Phone systems, access to data, CCTV and communications with emergency response teams and the public are all essential operational activities that have to continue so that teams can respond to emergency calls and maintain public safety. We work with a number of emergency services across the UK, ensuring each one has robust and reliable backup power equipment that’s right for their particular station or operation.
The UK police force approached Dale with an urgent request to provide reliable critical power to a police station. Their original UPS was failing rapidly and becoming unreliable.
Replacement modules were obsolete, and it was therefore increasingly difficult to service and maintain the unit. Additional load requirements were adding to the problem and a solution was needed quickly.
Dale reviewed the present and future needs of the station. A parallel UPS system and batteries with increased capacity and standby time was recommended. This system required larger batteries to support the increased capacity and so was located in a larger space. Dale engineering advised on the choice of area to improve ventilation to the system and protect the modules from moisture caused by poor air circulation.
Dale engineers worked closely with the police energy environment team and a flexible approach to this installation ensured any unforeseen issues were swiftly dealt with.
The new, upgraded dual UPS has the ability to run on just one UPS, providing the client with increased security and flexibility. It has capacity to support the addition load requirements and by building extra power redundancy into the solution the client is guaranteed critical power in their building at all times
– Supply and install a UPS and batteries with increased capacity and standby time
– Secure critical power is assured 24/7/365
– A future proofed solution
– A parallel system provides increased security and flexibility as they can now run on one UPS
