AMI Selects PS&C In Idaho

AMI selects PS&C in Idaho to support Data Center.  American Microsystems, Inc. (AMI) is a custom microchip fabricator located in Pocatello, Idaho that produces many of its chips for the control systems of aircraft, like the new Boeing 777. Like other chip manufacturers, AMI was keenly aware of the importance of protecting its sensitive fabrication processes since downtime results in loss of production, and loss of revenue. Larry Fisher, P.E., AMI’s Plant Engineer responsible for overall power quality, was convinced that a Hybrid Rotary UPS was the way to go because of its historically proven technology and ruggedness. All that was left was choosing the UPS that best suited AMI’s needs and budget.

PS&C has been building the most reliable Rotary UPS systems for over 30 years. Furthermore, we have experience in the fabrication market with UPS systems already online at Intel, Texas Instruments, American Micro Devices, Hitachi, and Motorola Worldwide. Since we’d visited with Mr. Fisher on several occasions, he was already familiar with our UPS technology, Field Service, and life cycle cost scenario. He was also aware of our continuing efforts to identify and eliminate single point failure components. After making a full product line presentation to Mr. Fisher and his staff, PS&C offered AMI a new Series XC 1000kVA UPS.

AMI took shipment of the UPS in July of 1995. Barely two months later, during the weekend of September 9-10, the Pocatello, Idaho area experienced a power outage. AMI, with its PS&C UPS, rode through the outage without so much as a hiccup! The system remained online throughout the outage and protected the sensitive fab manufacturing systems.

PS&C Supports Metrobank Manila HQ

                                               

Metrobank in the Philippines has ordered (4) 250kVA Series MC Hybrid Rotary UPS systems for their critical data center in Manila. The UPS systems are configured in two (N+1) redundant configurations. Metropolitan Bank and Trust Company (Metrobank) is one of the two largest private commercial/universal banks in the Philippines. It has a very large data communications network that covers more than 200 branches spread throughout the various islands.

Metrobank decided to purchase a PS&C Series MC UPS system after experiencing a major disaster last December when business was at its peak due to the approaching Christmas holidays. At the height of its online operation on December 22nd, the utility power failed and a 150kVA static UPS supporting the mainframe, and another 150kVA static UPS on standby, both failed. The entire database was lost. The UPS systems were repaired within a day; however, it took three days to restore the database. Before the disaster Metrobank had some concern about the rotary (motor generator) topology, but after the disaster they understood the importance of having the greatest MTBF possible.

Siemens Solar Selects PS&C

                                                    

The majority of Power Specialists’ Inc. sales are the Washington D.C. power line with companies such as Control Concepts, Itronics, Avtec Power Systems, etc. but they are working hard to make Power Systems & Controls a large part of their business. Power Specialists is the representative firm in southern California who recently brought home an order for Siemens Solar. This order was for 750kva Sereies XC Rotary UPS systems with a 5 minute battery. Siemens Solar wanted to back up a number of German built wire saws. The saws are used by them to produce silicon wafers for solar panels.

Power Specialists were contacted by Tolar & Associates (Siemens’ Engineering Firm) and asked to provide a budgetary quote. A package was sent which was followed by a presentation at Toler & Associates by our very own Mr. Gene Weaver, PS&C Regional Sales Manager. Several additional contacts were made and many questions were answered. The system shipped the last week in September with a December start-up schedule, which PS&C Field Service will handle. This order is truly unique in that the total elapsed time from first contact to order placement was only 3 weeks. We were awarded the order because of our quick response, superior offering, and the fact that PS&C has a good representative sales force in the area to act as a liaison.
