You’re Going to Need a Bigger Battery

Manufacturers need mitigation systems, such as industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) devices, to protect against power disruptions.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the industrial world as we know it, with data collection, seamless communications and more insight into operations than ever before.

Panduit have released a white paper on the need for backup power in the context of today’s increasingly connected industrial operations.

Even the most powerful, connected operations are still dependent on one critical, centuries-old element: power.

Designing, deploying and maintaining a network infrastructure must include how to contend with the inevitable power disruptions that every plant experiences – from both natural and man-made causes.

These disruptions can stem from extreme environmental conditions, vandalism, equipment failure and service provider issues. The proactive decisions made to address these risks will ultimately determine if operations continue seamlessly or if everything comes to an abrupt halt.
