Reliable Power Solutions has built a first-class reputation as power protection specialists. We have worked with many of the industry's leading companies who recognise our proficiency in providing UPS and battery installation solutions.
Our dedicated team design systems to ensure reliable operation to mission critical loads.
When mission-critical systems go down, a quick recovery is crucial.
Thermal Image Surveys
Heat is generated in many different ways. Thermal Image Surveys detect unforeseen problems which prevent businesses suffering costly damages that heavily impact on properties and production.
Loose connections, UPS discharging, cell breakdown, corrosion and overloading all generate heat and can cause electrical fires if preventative maintenance is not carried out.
Thermal Image Surveys help businesses protect their properties and decrease the chances of any insurance claims due to electrical fires. Customers will experience the following benefits as a result of Thermal Image Surveys:
Load Bank Testing
Load bank testing is the provision and connection of an electrical load to a power supply, often a UPS, in order to simulate the load and integrity of a client's overall system.
Determining the performance of the UPS and its entire electrical supply infrastructure through load bank testing will help to identify potential weaknesses. Load bank testing is carried out under controlled conditions by our team of experienced professionals.
Load bank testing can also be used to discharge batteries as an effective, accurate and relatively low cost method of determining battery autonomy.
Characteristics and benefits of load bank testing include:
Battery Impedance Tests
Predicting the life-span of batteries allows businesses to accurately estimate when batteries are approaching end of life. Battery impedance tests calculate, log and plot the internal impedance of each battery on a graph.
Battery manufacturers have a defined internal impedance level for batteries which is reached over the course of a battery's life. By comparing the internal impedance values with the others, and with those obtained at the last site visit, those batteries with rising impedance values can be identified .
Frequently Asked Questions
How can Reliable Power Solutions fully protect my power requirements?
We design systems to ensure that premium UPS and batteries are installed and that a 24/7/365 call-out and technical support service is provided by the nominated UPS supplier.
What are the most common causes for UPS failure or bypass to utility supply?
A non comprehensive maintenance regime where battery impedance testing is not performed and end-of-life parts are not replaced (batteries,capacitors,fans etc.) may result in a UPS failure and a switch to utility supply.
An overload of UPS of sufficient duration and magnitude will also result in a switch to utility supply.
