Power Distribution White Paper

The risk of arc flash is always present in power distribution systems, but many users are unaware of the dangers or the consequences. Likewise, data center engineers must know how to separate functional units from one another within low voltage switchgear units as this dictates how a system must be de-energized before making changes to the switchgear. Switchboards are expected to last for 20-plus years with long intervals between inspection and maintenance, meaning automated monitoring is needed.

This white paper looks at the measures to help users operate and maintain data center power distribution systems with maximum safety and minimal downtime.
