POWER QUALITY SYSTEMS
But continuous power isn’t the only issue when it comes to electrical supply. Even when the electricity is on, the quality of the power can be compromised. Dips, sags, and surges create an unstable flow of electricity that can be just as damaging as a complete outage – if not more so – making a clean power supply an equally critical priority.
The most common sources of power quality issues are natural causes such as weather, technological issues involving equipment or wiring malfunctions and human error. These issues can create a myriad of problems, including:
Loss of critical data
Dropped sales or service calls
Damage to manufacturing equipment
Loss of product or a batch of materials
Environmental safety risks
Legal liabilities resulting from service lapses
