The EastAfrican MARCH 28- APRIL 3, 2015 BATTERY, SOLAR & POWER BACKUP SYSTEMS Special advertising section 47 Cut losses with uninterrupted power supply Critical industrial processes demand reliable backup By EVANS ONGWAE Special Correspondent and social secto≥s. It lights up homes, educational institutions, health facilities, o∞ces, comme≥cial facilities and indust≥ies. It is also a key d≥ive≥ of indust≥ial activities. Its absence means losses P and business down tu≥ns. In some cases, powe≥ inte≥≥uptions a≥e accompanied with huge ≥evenue losses o≥ inconveniences. Such losses can, howeve≥, be ave≥ted by p≥ope≥ ene≥gy planning to ensu≥e continuity and sustainability in supply. Since businesse cannot af- fo≥d to be without powe≥, a second sou≥ce o≥, backup powe≥ must be available. Businesses a≥e ext≥emely ≥eliant on elect≥icity, and standby gene≥ato≥s a≥e mo≥e a≠o≥dable than eve≥ befo≥e. owe≥, in all its fo≥ms, is one of the p≥incipal d≥iving fo≥ces behind all economic volume of elect≥icity du≥ing p≥olonged blackout. C≥itical indust≥ial p≥ocesses demand ≥eliable backup. Powe≥ backup systems will keep the ≥evenues flowing, the custome≥s happy and the employees safe du≥ing a powe≥ dis≥uption. These systems automatically sta≥t du≥ing a powe≥ outage and ≥un indefinitely until powe≥ is ≥esto≥ed. Gene≥ally, powe≥ backup systems p≥ovide uninte≥≥uptible powe≥ and secu≥ity in cases of f≥equent outages f≥om g≥id powe≥. These systems a≥e cost-e≠ective, simple and easy to use. Powe≥ backup systems a≥e Electricity backup units Losing powe≥ fo≥ even a few hou≥s means secu≥ity systems shut down, data is lost, ≥ef≥ige≥ated goods spoil, and custome≥s a≥e ultimately tu≥ned away. In this age of high depend- ency on machines, a comme≥cial gene≥ato≥ helps you to powe≥ equipment c≥itical fo≥ business even afte≥ a blackout. Compute≥s and othe≥ vital equipment need to ≥un uninte≥≥upted even du≥ing the powe≥ outage and that ≥equi≥e a high level of powe≥ consumption. The comme≥cial gene≥ato≥ allows you to ca≥≥y on with the c≥itical aspects of you≥ business by p≥oviding this high designed to automatically and instantly p≥ovide uninte≥≥upted powe≥ to elect≥ically dependent devices in case of powe≥ failu≥es fo≥ a pe≥iod ≥anging f≥om minutes to seve≥al hou≥s. This depends on the system size. They a≥e ideal fo≥ both homes and businesses that a≥e p≥one to powe≥ failu≥es. The systems come in a wide ≥ange of sizes to meet all powe≥ and budget ≥equi≥ements and a≥e a ≥eal boon to the all kind of o≥ganizations. The system consists of batte≥y banks, inve≥te≥, and AVS. Du≥ing no≥mal powe≥ sup- ply f≥om the mains, the batte≥y bank sto≥es ene≥gy fo≥ use du≥ing ene≥gy outage. The size of the batte≥y bank dete≥mines how long the appliances will be ≥un du≥ing the powe≥ outage without ≥echa≥ging. Powe≥ ≥ating of the inve≥te≥ dete≥mines how many appliances can be used at any one time. The powe≥ ≥ating of the batte≥y dete≥mines how quickly the batte≥y bank can be ≥echa≥ged. Solutions In o≥de≥ to sustain no≥mal business ope≥ations, save business hou≥s (and hence cash flow) and avoid time wastage du≥ing powe≥ outages, powe≥ solution p≥ovide≥s in the ≥egion have ≥esponded to the demand fo≥ continuous and uninte≥≥upted powe≥ supply, which ensu≥es sustained g≥owth. One of these is Powe≥ Point Systems (EA) Ltd, an innovative fi≥m with the newest technology, p≥oviding alte≥native powe≥ solutions in the ≥egion. It p≥ovides unique specialized se≥vices tailo≥ed to meet the ≥equi≥ements of the ≥egion in te≥ms of sola≥ and wind powe≥ed equipment, as well as powe≥ backup systems. The powe≥ fi≥m continuous- ly st≥ives to find and test new p≥oducts and technologies, which suit local conditions with the best combination of p≥oduct e≠ectiveness, sensitive allocation of ≥esou≥ces with minimum o≥ ze≥o ≥unning costs. The fi≥m’s systems not only backup you≥ lights, secu≥ity system, PABX, fax, typew≥ite≥s, video, hi-fi, and f≥idge but also p≥otect them f≥om any damage a≥ising f≥om powe≥ su≥ges and fluctuations. With the cu≥≥ent powe≥ fluctuations in powe≥, they p≥ovide longe≥ and silent backup hou≥s at minimal ≥unning cost. In o≥de≥ to install a powe≥ backup system into you≥ p≥emises, the fi≥m fi≥st ca≥≥ies out a site su≥vey to establish the elect≥ic facilities that should conside≥ed fo≥ powe≥ backup. This is by analyzing the wi≥ing of you≥ p≥emises and also taking note of the pe≥iod ove≥ which you≥ facilities need to be backed up. Afte≥ establishing the essen- tial data, the system is sized, i.e., the components needed fo≥ the system a≥e dete≥mined and matched to the assessed powe≥ ≥equi≥ements. Then upon the consent of the client the system is installed and commissioned.
