When ensure greater flexibility with data center, organize regular maintenance to provide power supply security of uninterruptible power supply ( UPS) Is of crucial importance. And its maintenance is designed to minimize risk, and makes the UPS run in safe and efficient manner. If, however, perform maintenance behavior itself constitutes a risk? What kind of response organization can take? For example, a British airline's data center in the summer of 2017 because of human error to malfunction. And human error is the main reason for the problems in the process of UPS maintenance, the engineer may press the wrong switch, or execute a program in wrong order. Although in these cases accused the engineer's negligence is easy, but this error is usually due to poor operating procedure is not standard, identification, and even caused by inadequate training measures. Through at the beginning of the UPS installation to eliminate these problems, can avoid the risk. For example, if the installation of the UPS system is composed of large parallel UPS and complex switchgear power supply system, should add interlocks in design. These measures to users in a controlled and safe way to switch, but at the beginning of the project is often left out in the design to save costs. Round-the-clock operation of equipment to monitor also provides powerful protection function, should be part of the organization maintenance system. And rigorous training is also very important. Take simple steps can make a difference. Through the real-time updating basic tags and switch schematic can avoid the happening of calamity. Advice group provides specific switching program file record. If the site maintenance is critical, maintenance personnel will remind each other when implemented ( Two engineers in executed before every action will check program) Most will prevent human error. Any repair and maintenance of the use of advanced technology may bring UPS or switch equipment risk, so need to reduce maintenance times. While most of the problems ( Including electrical component failure) All can be detected by monitoring the electrical part quantity of heat in advance. For example, if the electrical parts join point not tighten, it will begin to heat up and ultimately to failure in some way. And check each connection is the most effective solution is to use thermal imaging technology. Thermal imaging technology can identify potential problems. Monitoring equipment and capacity all-weather monitoring also provides a powerful protection function, should be part of the organization safeguard measures. Strict training is also important, at the same time, to ensure that the equipment supervisor engineer to be able to do work. Don't be afraid to maintenance service provider organization of maintenance personnel to ask questions, they have a responsibility to provide qualified certificate, this related to the organization itself and its engineers, and always need to check the scene processing situation. Powerful safeguard measures should also make sure that when UPS fails to get timely and effective response. Service level agreements need to apply to the application of key. If only during normal operating hours to access UPS, so for the 24-hour response of UPS, so the maintenance of the contract does not make sense. Round-the-clock operation that is to say, if the data center, and is crucial to the business, then the 24-hour response is required. Organizations need exactly explain the composition of the response, it may be just a phone number or the engineer to the scene processing, and need to review the engineer's qualification and level. UPS maintenance procedures of the organization's current review, will help to identify and reduce the organization may not have anticipated before the key operating risk. Organization through due diligence, can avoid the accident.
