CPD Sessions

Senseco Systems - Which is the best suppression method: Sprinklers, Water Mist or Gas Suppression?

This presentation gives a brief overview of sprinkler systems, various types of gas extinguishing systems, and water mist systems. As sprinklers and gas extinguishing systems are widely known, more time is spent on water mist and explaining its different uses and applications. There is a specific section on data center protection. The presentation compares the different technologies and the pros and cons of each system and its applications.

Riello UPS Ltd - Lifespan Of Batteries In UPS

Batteries are an integral part of any data centre UPS installation. Indeed, without a well-maintained battery system that performs when you need it, the UPS itself is practically worthless.

This presentation, which is accredited by the CPD Certification Service, offers you a comprehensive overview of UPS batteries, from the different types and how they’re manufactured, through to the factors that affect cell lifespan. You’ll also learn about the most common conditions and get some top tips about maintenance and monitoring.

Schneider Electric - How efficient Uninterruptible Power Supply solutions ensure resiliency and Sustainability operations.

As data usage skyrockets, data centres consume ever more power. Data centres are estimated to represent between 1-2% of global electricity consumption and when combined with the continued growth of data centre capacity; efficiency and sustainability have become more critical than ever. Our technological world has become deeply dependent upon the continuous availability of electrical power. In recent years data centre operators have come under increasing pressure to make their facilities more efficient, resilient, and sustainable.

Uptime and uninterruptible power are, in many respects, business-critical, and for data centre operators, a sustainable backup power system can offer a resilient solution to safeguard against downtime and meet environmental demands. This session talks about trends, challenges and how can an industry built on reliability, meet demands for resiliency and sustainable operations with efficient data centre architecture and critical power systems.
