The electrical infrastructure of a data center facility is one of the most critical elements among the systems necessary to maintaining maximum uptime. And infrared scanning can help you avoid unplanned outages in your data center.
In today’s typical multi-tenant data center, the facility owner typically manages the electrical distribution infrastructure from the utility power handoff to the internal power distribution units (PDUs).
The tenant will own the downstream distribution from the PDUs, usually beginning with the PDU output breakers and feeders to customer-owned remote power panels (RPPs) and ending with power strips.
The facility owner’s preventative maintenance program may not include the equipment owned by the tenant, which introduces a risk of downtime. Unplanned downtime of the electrical infrastructure can impact end users and expose an organization to financial risks.
Performing comprehensive preventative maintenance to these systems is critical to detecting and repairing potential problems before they cause an outage. A recurring maintenance program that includes infrared scanning is the vehicle that can provide visibility to potential problems before they occur.
