Since its establishment in 1965, Power Systems & Controls has prided itself on the ruggedness and adaptability of our rotary UPS and Power Conditioning systems. Units bearing the PS&C name can be found all over the world operating in many different climates and under very diverse conditions. PS&C units are presently operating in the Philippines at Metro Bank, at Pilipino Telephone, and over a dozen Series XC RUPS will soon be shipped to Meralco. Firms such as Medtronics, Smith Kline, and Dupont Merck in Puerto Rico also trust PS&C to keep their facilities running smoothly.
When Motorola in Hong Kong needed reliable, dependable backup for its fabrication plant, they chose PS&C. Other customers who depend on PS&C’s proven reliability are China Steel, Shell Canada, CFB Borden, and Bradesco Bank in Brazil. Guardian Industries, one of the world’s largest producers of glass for the automotive and construction industries, has had PS&C Series XC systems in their plant in Venezuela since 1980.
Power Systems & Controls recently starting supplying UPS systems to AURA – The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. The undertaking, known as the Gemini Project, is an international partnership to build two 8-meter telescopes. One will be located on Mount Mauna Kea, Hawaii and one on Mount Cerro Pachon, Chile. The telescopes and auxiliary instrumentation will be international facilities open to the scientific communities of England, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, and the United States.
The Series MC systems provided by PS&C will be backing up the observatory for rotating the building, as well as, serving as backup for the orderly shutdown of the facilities’ computers, should a power outage occur. Both sites offer high degree of clear weather and excellent atmospheric stability. The Gemini telescopes are designed to use the best image quality allowed by the Earth’s atmosphere. They will undertake a broad range of astronomical research programs within the partner countries.
The northern Gemini Telescope site located on the summit of Mauna Kea is completely developed with phone, electric, and water systems in place. The Cerro Pachon site located in the foothills of the Chilean Andes and is at present a mostly undeveloped site located on land owned by AURA. As evidenced, PS&C machines have proven their ability commercially worldwide. Wherever or whatever the problem you have with your electrical system, you can count on Power Systems & Controls to provide the best solution for your power quality needs.
