Critical Facilities: Powering

Description:
The Critical Facilities powering course explores commercial power and how a UPS is needed for the longevity of your electronics. In the powering module you will learn the calculations needed to measure how much energy the electronics use. Backup systems for the commercial power are important for critical facilities as well. Keeping the facility safe from power surges by proper bonding and grounding procedures are discussed in the powering course. The powering course also details the importance of maintenance and safety around powering inside the critical facility.

Target Audience:

This course is designed for individuals that will be auditing or working in the critical facility such as headend and hub sites or personal that manage critical facilities.
