Meissner unveils new UPS lab

February 2004 News

Local UPS manufacturer, Meissner, has enhanced its service by introducing an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) test laboratory. According to Graham Beyleveld, sales director at Meissner, the company had need of a facility that was removed from the daily manufacturing facilities, an area where site conditions can be assimilated accurately.

"The lab is used for customer witness tests. This means that purchased products are put through their paces in a simulated environment akin to that of the customer's site. These tests qualify that the UPSs they have acquired satisfy their specific needs and specifications."

Meissner's UPS laboratory provides the company with a unique opportunity to demonstrate large systems to customers.

"When a client purchases a large UPS for a specific environment they have to be assured that the product is able to handle load steps, whereby the loads can fluctuate without affecting the output of the machine. With this facility we can simulate a power failure and ensure that no frequency variation occurs. Apart from the ability to demonstrate UPSs of up to 400 kVA, the facility will also be used for research and development purposes as we strive to enhance reliability and quality still further."

The laboratory is used to test all of Meissner's new prototypes and imported machines will also be evaluated in order to verify the manufacturer's specifications.
