View Full Version : Downtime for BC

11-18-2010, 07:00 PM
Please be advised of the following maintenance window:

Maintenance Window: Wednesday November 24th, 9:00am - 1:00pm EST

Affected Device(s): UPS-A, UPS-B
Affected Customers: All customers
Service Impacting: No - Precautionary maintenance notice

Details: UPS service contractors will be performing the annual preventative maintenance on the UPS units, and their batteries. While we do not expect this to be a service impacting maintenance, the UPS unit will be operating on battery bypass, and should utility power fail at this time, there will be an interruption in services as the Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) switches power from utility to generator. As such, this should be considered a precautionary maintenance window. We expect each UPS unit to be on battery bypass for approximately 30 minutes during this maintenance window, allowing technicians sufficient time to perform any/all tests they need to run. The battery bypass will be staggered, to ensure both units are not on bypass at the same time.
