UPS & Static Switch Testing

The typical company’s data center downtime costs an average of $474,000 per hour.

To eliminate expensive downtime, many large companies with data centers use AstroNova data recorders to prevent power glitches from interfering with business operations by implementing a regular testing program.

Prevention testing includes:

  • UPS Load Testing: Used to test whether or not the UPS has adequate load regulation and able to maintain a constant voltage level on all three phases of the output voltage as equipment is being switched on and off the UPS supply bus.
  • Static Transfer Switch Testing: Used to test minimum cycle switch time from UPS to generator upon UPS power failure detection.
