When Shroud was six hours into his New World grinding session he suddenly lost his power supply. It was during this time that he was talking with his Twitch viewers and friends. However he soon had to disconnect his stream due to an error message. The following are a few things that should have been done to restore the power to Shroud. If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who have suffered this same fate here’s a little advice for you: try to fix the problem as soon as possible.
Uninterruptible power supply
During a recent stream Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek was unable to continue playing his game after his uninterruptible power source (UPS) blew up. He was able to quickly reconnect and resume playing his game but the stream was cut short due to the problem. In the meantime he explained the problems to his audience. Here’s what happened and how to avoid them.
An uninterruptible power supply is a backup electrical energy source that kicks in when the main power goes out. UPS units come in various sizes and types and their capacities range from very small to extremely large. These power sources are essential for many types of businesses and homes but may not be required for every type of operation. This type of backup system is an important part of many organizations and homes so ensuring that yours is always ready to go is essential for your business’s safety.
Shroud’s power range is from 8 to 11 kVA depending on the model. Its maintenance bypass module is attached to the rear of the extended battery module. If UPS 1 fails the maintenance bypass module will provide uninterruptible power to the load. The maintenance bypass module is an advantageous supplement to an UPS allowing you to perform maintenance without shutting down the load. Whether your business requires a backup power supply or just a backup power source for the sake of safety the Uninterruptible Power Supply is an excellent option.
Base station emergency power supply system
In the event of a power failure the base station emergency power supply system can help ensure that critical operations continue uninterrupted. The system includes a central battery system that has automatic controls and is located in the power station building. This system consists of lead-acid battery cell units that produce either 12 or 24 VDC. These systems also feature standby cells with battery charging units of their own. In order to trigger the emergency power circuit a voltage-sensing unit must be installed to detect 208-volt AC electricity.
Another base station emergency power supply system is a network system of high-direct-voltage remote power feeding stations. The network includes multiple base stations and is connected to each other by an annular power supply network. This allows each base station in the network to receive power support from any other base station. As a result base stations have a greater capacity than they did before. A base station emergency power supply system can help maintain communications when a power failure occurs and keep the network running.
Another type of emergency power system is the Level 2 emergency power supply system. This type of system provides power to critical equipment in a building during a utility outage. Life safety systems are typically powered by emergency lighting fire alarm monitoring and elevators. The automated transfer switch will transfer the load from utility power to the emergency power system and back to utility power once the power is restored. Distribution panels often have switching and circuit protection capabilities and individual cable routing is possible to ensure the best power delivery.
