MARKETS WE SERVE
Keeping schools and educational facilities running efficiently is critical in today’s society, and power quality plays an important role. Since computers and other electronic devices are now commonplace within classrooms and other school venues, there is certainly a requirement for clean power.
To provide protection from electrical noise and voltage transients, “clean power” panelboards are often installed to feed computer lab rooms, and to protect sensitive A/V equipment within the performing arts center. Each panelboard is supplied power from a multi-shielded, K-13 rated, computer-grade isolation transformer, typically together with a surge protection device (SPD).
In addition to clean power, uninterruptible power is crucial for school security systems. These systems include video surveillance cameras covering campus entry points and hallways, as well as outdoor gathering spaces and parking lots. Battery backup is also needed for critical systems that allow the school to communicate both on campus and with local police and fire departments.
Controlled Power Company offers a variety of products for schools and universities that address these power quality needs!Find a Solution
