Seminar Overview

Do you know how your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system works? Do you even know if it works? And if it does, do you know what to do if the power goes out? What about when the power comes back on? Backup emergency systems are essential, but only valuable if you properly maintain and test them, know how they work, and have the people on staff trained to work with them in emergency situations. In this 1 day electrical seminar, we provide the basics of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to so that your facility is ready.

This 1 day emergency power seminar is designed to make sure your plant and facility personnel are ready for anything.
