Understanding the application, installation, operation and troubleshooting of UPS systems and storage batteries.
A course for electricians, maintenance technicians or anyone needing a basic understanding of UPS systems in an emergency situation.
How often do you get a chance to work with the Uninterruptable Power Supply system in your facility? Do you know what steps to take in the event of an emergency so that your facility can be kept up and running? What is your procedure if something goes wrong? What about regular testing and preventive maintenance?
Too often UPS systems come online late or delayed because the first responders aren't properly prepared. First responders are the people who will actually be at your facility when an outage occurs – the plant electrician, maintenance technician or a supervising engineer. This course is designed for them or anyone at your facility who needs a basic understanding of the application, installation, operation and troubleshooting of UPS systems and storage batteries. The theory of operation and the routine testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of typical single phase and three phase uninterruptible power systems are thoroughly covered, as are the safety precautions to be observed when working with these systems.
Backup emergency systems are essential, but only valuable if you have the people on staff trained to work with them in emergency situations. This class is designed to make sure your plant and facility personnel are ready for anything.
This course is created specifically for maintenance personnel who are "first responders" in industrial plants, public facilities, and commercial buildings.
Attendees come from a wide variety of industries, skill-levels, company sizes, and job titles, so if you're not sure you'll fit in or benefit from this class, don't worry - you will! - as long as you have an interest in or responsibility for the UPS systems in your facility. People attending this course include.....

During this seminar you will learn how to use both hardware and software to find these faults quickly. Students will learn how to use a systematic approach to troubleshooting; how to set up and configure Input/Output modules using various slot addressing techniques; what to understand about program and data table file organization, number systems and processor information flow; and how basic, relay type instructions, timers, and counters, and data manipulation instructions can be used to achieve the automation and PLC solution you want.
The other 20% of faults can also be quickly found using software tools that usually remain hidden to all but the most experienced troubleshooting professional.
