Condition-based monitoring & control


For data center operators, the ability to ensure the highest levels of availability and reliability as well as avoid unplanned outages and downtime offers the potential to decrease operating and maintenance costs.

Reduce infrastructure investment through condition-based monitoring

By looking at the actual condition of the electrical equipment, operators can move away from reactive maintenance towards condition-based maintenance.

Maintenance for electrical equipment is usually done either according to time based maintenance schedules (preventive maintenance) or when reacting to a failure (reactive maintenance). In the case of reactive maintenance, there is an unplanned outage that reduces plant performance and increases costs. In the case of preventive maintenance, experience with the equipment is required to ensure adequate schedules are set and maintenance teams are coordinated. This means that maintenance costs are incurred regardless of the actual condition of the installation.
