Reports for power testing

11/04/2010


Emerson Network Power has debuted its ASCO PowerQuest Test Reports, which help facilities comply with NFPA, NEC, and JCAHO reporting requirements for on-site power system testing, operation, load profiling, and peak load shaving. ASCO PowerQuest Reports automate the manual, time-consuming data logging required to comply with NFPA 99 and 110 for exercising emergency power systems, NEC 220.87 for documenting actual on-site power demand load, and JCAHO requirements for helping ensure reliable power for life safety loads. The reports’ data format parallels the requirements of reporting codes and standards. The reports include monthly testing, peak load shaving, frequency and test length, date and time of test, equivalent loads (load banks), load run/banks for diesel-powered emergency power systems only, and cold starts.
