Emergency power and ups systems in Seattle area
Public and/or large buildings have emergency power systems installed to allow certain electrical components to operate during a power outage. Homeowners are also installing smaller standby generators on their property, especially if they are in rural areas where power restoration after a storm could take days or weeks. Emergency and standby power systems can be fairly simple (for homes) or very complex (for large institutional buildings like hospitals).
Emergency Power Systems provide automatic backup power in the event of normal power loss. They are required by code and shall provide power within 10 seconds to all life safety systems such as egress lighting, smoke evacuation, fire alarm systems, elevators, etc. Simply put, anything that will protect the lives of the building occupants should be on Emergency Power. Another important thing to remember is that emergency power systems must be completely separate; this means that they shall have their conduit runs, their panels, their transfer stations, etc
