Data centre and IT power quality and earthing problem resolution


Data centres and IT installations often suffer from unexplained problems thought to be related electrical power quality or earthing and bonding issues.


Some of these problems can be resolved by introducing a UPS between the public electricity supply and the critical IT equipment. However, modern transformer-less UPSs do not provide complete isolation and electrical noise can be carried through on the shared neutral connection.


Similar problems arise when electrical supply authorities insist on 4-pole isolation of standby generators which can leave the neutral conductor floating during changeover from the public to the generator supply.


Lighting protection design is also critical and care is needed with earthing and bonding of electrical installations and screened data cables do avid damage or data corruption from local lightning strikes.

The  Expendables have many years of experience in Data centre and IT power quality and earthing problem resolution and can review your new design, survey an existing installation or help you to diagnose incidents and provide permanent resolution.
