TUSTIN, Calif.– With California wild fires raging once again and winter ice storms not far off, it seems like our power grids are constantly under assault. The outdoor elements coupled with old outdated laboratory facilities is far from the ideal environment for sensitive scientific equipment. Dirty power has significant effects on laboratory equipment instrumentation. Franek Technologies is very knowledgeable in understanding just how detrimental dirty laboratory power can be on scientific equipment and in turn how it can greatly impact your end results.
Laboratory Power Protection is too important to be left to chance. Power companies work hard to avoid power outages, but even on sunny days power flickers, voltage surges, and static noise can degrade instrument performance and produce maintenance issues. Franek Technologies stands between you and your next power problem. A Franek Uninterruptible Power Supply Unit (UPS) will reduce downtime in the event of a brownout or blackout as the batteries will maintain power to your valuable equipment until backup power such as a generator can come online. The uninterruptible power supply protects against voltage float or sag, which can cause the current to increase thereby forcing your equipment to run at higher temperatures. If equipment is running at higher temperatures this will lead to component degradation and could lead to inaccurate or unreliable results. Poor power quality represents an enormous cost to the healthcare industry in reduced productivity, expensive retesting and re-calibration, lost reporting time and equipment damage. Field studies have shown that electronic equipment powered by a clean, continuous energy source has a longer life span and a lower overall cost of ownership.
Franek Technologies has the ability to provide product-specific solutions for your UPS needs. Franek is the leader in Certified Category III-3 Laboratory Protection Systems (UPS/LPS), the organization recommended by leading instrument manufacturers including Applied Biosystems/Life Technologies, Agilent, Illumina, Ion Torrent and Thermo-Fisher Scientific. Franek Technologies is constantly updating their database as manufactures continue to bring to market exciting, new, and innovative products. Franek Technologies is working to provide clean problem free power protection solutions for all clinical and scientific laboratories.
