The beating heart
The grid power fails and the emergency power system kicks in immediately. Critical departments should not even be aware of the outage. An operating theatre must have uninterrupted power, the doors of a prison must stay locked and trading must continue on the financial markets. But it could be that the coffee machines stop working briefly. Zwart’s control systems ensure that the agreed priorities are made when the emergency power system is activated. This is the intelligent heart of the emergency power system.
The control screens tell you at a glance what is working and where, as it’s supposed to. That way the technical team is reassured and can focus their attention on other priorities.
You decide what must keep working in the event of a power outage. What is critical and what is not. This determines the functionality of the control system we design for you. Of course, we’ll tell you what we think and give you our opinion, raising points you may not have considered or been aware of. After all, we are Zwart and this is what we do.
Power outages are rarely planned
Power outages are rarely announced beforehand and are never convenient. But with a Zwart emergency power solution there is no need for panic. The control system will make sure there is power where it is needed. Automatically, with no intervention required. And once power from the grid is available it will quietly and safely turn itself off again – ready for the next unplanned outage.
An emergency power system is a sizeable investment with a critical task. As such it is essential to maintain the system in optimum condition. Our multi-year maintenance and upgrade programs ensure that the system keeps working as it should. In many cases for more than 25 years.
