  • What are Brown Outs?
    Brown outs are getting more common every day in the UK. Therefore Brown outs prevention is a necessity for mission critical sites. What is a Brown Out? These occur when mains GRID supply voltage momentarily drops down. They are usually micro second drops in power....
  • What is an Uninterruptible Power Supply System-explained?
    Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system is an emergency backup power source usually consisting of lead acid batteries supporting power electronics that converts incoming AC to DC output current to support a specified load. The UPS will provide No BREAK power to the downstream load for...
  • How UPS systems work for critical power supplies?
    UPS systems work as an instantaneous emergency backup. Electrical power source usually consisting of lead acid batteries. For larger systems it can be a Rotary Fly Wheel UPS system. Supporting power electronics converts incoming AC to DC output current. Above all supporting critical power load....

  • How to keep MICE out of generators
    Keeping mice out of generators is imperative. Because generators are warm in the winter, cool in the summer. As a result will nest, live and breed inside any generator canopy/container. Hence damaged cables will impact on your investment, preventing the generator starting in an emergency....
  • How to keep RATS out of generators
    Generators are warm in the winter, cool in the summer. Therefore it is very important to keeping rats out of generators, as the container or canopy is an ideal place for nesting. To protect your investment ensure the control cables are not compromised, which will...
  • Why Replace Diesel Generator Fuel Injectors?
    So, Why Replace Diesel Generator Fuel Injectors. There are a multitude of generator fuel additives on the market that can help to keep the fuel injectors clean, and thereby prevent or at least slow down the clogging or complete fuel blockage due to debris build-up. However,...
  • Diesel Generator Low Oil Pressure Warning
    Is your diesel generator reporting low oil pressure? By means of a warning light or a message on the controller display. Have you noticed symptoms of low oil pressure, including a recent increase in generator noise. (insufficient oil to lubricate the moving components). Or a...
  • Diesel Generator Low Oil Pressure Symptoms
    Is your diesel generator showing symptoms of low oil pressure? A fall in your diesel generator’s oil pressure can lead to serious damage if not detected and resolved quickly. As a result, these symptoms can be detected by your service engineer while performing a regular maintenance...
  • Diesel Generator Low Oil Pressure – What Damage Can It Cause?
    Oil is one of the cheapest components of a generator – but also one of the most important. It is the lifeblood of the engine, cooling and lubricating the internal moving components and keeping everything running smoothly. When the quantity of oil in the system...
  • Generator battery failure – Why?
    Generator Battery failure does happen. No Battery = No Start !! In this paragraph we discuss how this can be avoided by following these simple steps. Operational Temperature The optimum battery performance is achieved if the battery operational ambient temperature is constantly between 19ºC and...
