Emergency power tests

The Square D PowerLogic emergency power supply system (EPSS) test helps hospitals ensure their backup power systems are ready to perform.

05/06/2011


Schneider Electric announced the Square D PowerLogic emergency power supply system (EPSS) test solution to help hospitals ensure their backup power systems are ready to perform and compliant with maintenance and testing regulations. The EPSS test solution automates test procedures while electronically documenting a wide range of test measurement data points. It collects data from and provides control for generators and automatic transfer switches and ensures testing occurs at or above recommended manufacturer ratings for load and engine temperature. The system can also evaluate energy efficiency, power quality analysis, transient capture on generators, and breaker status monitoring.
