Data centers should be designed to meet certain power requirements. Without a reliable, uninterrupted power supply, the facility will experience downtimes that risk disrupting all its operations. Loss of power, even for a few seconds, can cause massive losses. That’s why the choice of data center power infrastructure equipment must be made very carefully. Of course, there are numerous options of power and electricity infrastructure or equipment to choose from. The key thing is to ensure that the equipment is reliable and provides adequate security just in case of power failure in the locality.
Design Of A Power System
When designing a data center power system, two aspects to keep in mind are the loads being serviced at the facility as well as maintenance demands. Power systems should be designed to make scheduling and implementing maintenance very easy and practical. Our technicians use their expertise and experience to design power systems using advanced technology.
Components like tie breakers, auto transfer switches, UPS and maintenance by-pass equipment are vital to data centers. For instance, an auto transfer switch will help to ensure maximum reliability of the power system by quickly switching between different sources of power during loss, voltage interruption or a power sag.
We may recommend maintenance by-pass equipment because this helps to minimize downtime during maintenance since it is designed to allow removal for testing or replacement to be done, without having to shut-down the entire system as in the case of fixed-mounted data center equipment. We will evaluate the equipment rooms to ensure that the environment is clean with filtered air.
Power Stream Maintenance/Inspection, Testing and Repair
At CRSC, we know that each part of the power system is important to the overall success of the data center. That is why maintenance and inspections should be carried out on a regular basis to ensure the equipment functions and is maintained according to manufacturer specifications and industry standards. Proper documentation during maintenance or inspection is key to providing accurate, safe and complete repairs. We plan inspection activities before shut-down of the power system to prevent wasting time. All maintenance is done by qualified personnel at CRSC.

Choosing Data Center Power Equipment
Various factors come into play when choosing power and electricity equipment for your data center. First, the equipment selected will be determined by the way the data center is powered. At CRSC, we evaluate your facility’s power requirements from the local utility providing the power supply to components such as cables, switches, batteries and backup generators. Each of these elements will contribute to providing uninterrupted power supply within the facility.
Selecting the right equipment, whether cabling or switches, is a key step to making sure the data center has constant uptime. We understand how important it is to have proper infrastructure for power and electricity and that’s why we choose from multiple options which equipment to use. We will discuss with the client the best power and electricity infrastructure and provide solid recommendations on what would work best for your project.
