  • Diesel Generator Won’t Start – Tried Everything
    Diesel generator still won’t start? Then we need to look at the ‘not-so-obvious’ and check them carefully, one by one. Firstly check through all the advice that Power Continuity has provided within our FREE knowledge resource base listed below:- https://powercontinuity.co.uk/knowledge-base/diesel-generator-wont-start/ https://powercontinuity.co.uk/knowledge-base/generator-failed-start/ https://powercontinuity.co.uk/knowledge-base/diesel-generators-what-about-temperature-issues/ https://powercontinuity.co.uk/knowledge-base/generator-overheating/ Now let’s...
  • Data Centre Power Continuity
    Data Centre Power Continuity will eliminate power dips, spikes, brownouts that would otherwise pose a serious risk to data centre IT equipment and servers. Additionally, multiple issues can be experienced when data centre power has blips, including loss of data, reduced production and time wasted...
  • Phase Shift – What Is It?
    Phase shift happens what there is more than one power feed coming into a building. Each transformer supply needs to have the same phase rotation and the identical phase location. (zero) If there is only one supply, then there is no issue. On the other...
  • Power Continuity – Data Centre Fuel Systems
    A Power Continuity back-up generator as part of a data centre’s power continuity system is only as good as the fuel system that supplies it. We design, build and install, anywhere in the UK. Bigger the better, for Data Centres. Once installed what’s next ?...
  • Generators – Water in Fuel – Contamination
    A diesel generator, as the name suggests, relies upon a clean supply of fuel to operate and to do so in an efficient manner. Any water in the fuel, will contaminate the engine. The most common fuel used for this here in the UK is...
  • Data Centre Refurbishment And Upgrades 
    Data centre refurbishment and upgrades at first glance might sound reasonably straightforward. Power Continuity, stop and consider the various options and permutations, along with the individual and differing needs of each company, you begin to realise that data centre design is not as simple as it...
  • The Role of Static Transfer Switches – How fast do They Switch?
    Static Transfer Switches - How fast do They Switch, In the event of a power loss? Power Continuity installations switch seamlessly via STS to the UPS & Generator supplies without any break, to avoid any disruption or loss to your site; virtually instantaneous. No Break...
  • Diesel Generator Frequency – Explained
    Diesel generator frequency is the Electrical frequency, measured in Hertz (Hz), which describes the number of times that the current alternates, or changes direction, each second. This can be seen in an alternating current sine wave graph on an oscilloscope display, each complete wave being caused...
  • Data Centre Cooling & Air Conditioning
    Data centre cooling & air conditioning is a given. Every Data centre is rammed with racks of servers that continually generate masses of heat. If servers overheat they should & will automatically shut down to prevent damage, for sure, this will be creating a ‘domino-effect’...
  • Diesel Generator Won’t Start
    Your diesel generator won’t start; you need to check these FIRST. Check first the emergency STOP is not pushed in. This is the most common cause of the generator NOT starting. Release the emergency stop button by twisting it outwards to release. You can then feel...
