Industrial-strength solutions to improve safety
BY MIETEK GLINKOWSKI, ABB
A major source of disruption and downtime in data centers is human error. And their largest safety hazard is in the increasing size of the electrical systems that power them. Both of these risks can be addressed at two important levels: design—of the center and its critical systems—and through improvement of day-to-day operations.
As data center managers look to manage risk and safety in these areas, they will also find meaningful opportunities to improve reliability. They will find automation solutions that reduce error-prone human intervention. And they will find electrification technologies that reduce hazards and disruptions while enabling desired steps toward sustainability and energy independence–an the overall goal to reduce electrical risks in data centers.Read the full article in our digital magazine
