The Critical Power And Infrastructure Handbook 2017 is a must have guide on power protection solutions and technology for anybody involved in Critical Business Applications which require 24/7 power and is interested in learning about best practice.

The Critical Power and Infrastructure Handbook encapsulates the wealth of knowledge of experienced professionals and lays out in straightforward language the key data centre infrastructure technologies. This includes power and cooling structures and the fundamental principles and the in depth know how which will help prevent costly pitfalls when designing a new data centre or upgrading an existing facility or any critical power application.
This guide is a must read for any data centre professional looking to ensure the optimum infrastructure, taking into account energy efficiency, resiliency and flexibility needed in today’s data driven world.

Forward from the book.

The digital economy is developing at a rapid pace and consumers are becoming more ‘information hungry’ than ever – devouring cloud services, social media applications, shopping, banking and working online. As we move towards a digital Europe, opening up new opportunities for people and businesses, the role of the data centre in storing, managing and processing this data will become increasingly important. Regarded as one of the key utilities of the 21st century, data centres operate behind the scenes to make sure these services are available 24/7.

Today’s data centre therefore must be a sturdy infrastructure to handle this information and must also be flexible, agile and nimble to cope with demand. A particular challenge is ensuring the design critical infrastructure in a data centre is efficient and resilient. Get this wrong and the data centre owner could face unnecessary loss financially or in wasted energy.

Understanding how different critical components within the data centre act and interact with other components is crucial. As is understanding the relationship between business criticality and the level of resilience required to keep the business protected. Another must for the data centre owner is understanding the impact of increasing resilience in the data centre on energy usage.

4. IR Thermal Imaging Surveys - Infrared electrical inspection. Infrared electrical testing finds hot, dangerous problems quickly. Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components.

Detect system overloads, loose defective components and damaged switchgear. Infrared electrical testing finds hot, dangerous problems quickly. Infrared electrical inspections find hot spots caused by defects in connections and components.

Infrared thermography is used to find areas of excess heat (caused by increased resistance) so that problems can be corrected before a component fails, causing damage to the component, creating safety hazards and productivity loss. Because increased heating is a sign of failure, infrared is the best diagnostic tool available for finding these hot connections in the early stages of degeneration.
