How to ensure power quality in your industrial building

5 June, 2024

The start of a new year is the perfect time to make sure your home or workplace has the best power quality. In this article, we will focus on practical solutions to protect your electronic devices and ensure a stable power supply.

Practical tips to ensure an efficient installation

It is ideal to start a new year with all our installations working efficiently and for this, we share with you a series of recommendations.

  • Review and update your machinery or equipment.
    First of all, the basis of an efficient installation lies in the quality of your machinery. Start the process by evaluating the performance of your current equipment. Is it meeting the expected quality and efficiency standards? Is it operating at maximum capacity? If it’s time, consider upgrading to more energy-efficient equipment to improve performance and reduce long-term costs.
  • Perform proper maintenance.
    Regular maintenance is essential to ensure long-term efficiency. This activity can include periodic inspections, equipment cleaning, and replacement of worn parts. A preventive approach not only extends the life of your machines or appliances, but also avoids costly unplanned outages.
  • Consider refurbishing your installation.
    Third, the safety of your installation depends to a large extent on the quality of the equipment in it. Evaluate the age of your electrical infrastructure and consider whether it is time for a comprehensive renovation. Technology has advanced, and newer installations are more efficient and adaptable to today’s demands. This process may involve upgrading wiring, electrical panels and distribution systems.
  • Invest in new electrical protection solutions.
    Innovation is the key to staying ahead of the curve. Do your research and consider incorporating new technology solutions that can increase the efficiency of your facility. From energy management systems to uninterruptible power supply or regulation systems that safeguard the performance of your most critical equipment. Investing in new solutions can result in significant savings and more efficient operation.

3 essential pieces of equipment for electrical protection

Here are three strategic allies for your installation to have a robust protection against disturbances in the network. In this way, your equipment is secured against possible electrical threats, with a constant supply of energy and prolonging its useful life.

Voltage Regulator

On the one hand, the voltage regulator protects equipment sensitive to voltage variations, from household appliances to heavy industrial machines, audiovisual or computer equipment, telecommunications, among others. Sudden voltage changes can damage or affect the performance of your equipment.

Surge Suppressor

On the other hand, the surge suppressor is designed to protect sensitive electronic equipment against voltage surges and spikes, which can occur due to electrical storms, variations in the network or other unforeseen events. The suppressor sends excess voltage to ground, preventing it from reaching connected devices.

Uninterruptible Power System (UPS)

Finally, the UPS provides constant power to entire facilities or sensitive equipment in case of blackouts or sudden power outages. It prevents data loss, equipment damage and ensures that your devices continue to operate without interruption.
