Falcon Electric kicks-off Lunch and Learn program

Falcon Electric, Inc., an Irwindale, Calif., manufacturer of power protection and conversion products, has officially started its new Lunch and Learn program across North America. Falcon’s collaborative Lunch and Learn presentations will provide electrical engineers, project managers, operations and maintenance personnel with an in-depth look at choosing the right power protection solution for mission-critical processes, especially those operating in harsh conditions. During these informative sessions, Falcon’s technical representatives will discuss considerations for maximizing uptime of power dependent applications such as oil and gas, process control, security, water treatment and transportation.

The discussions are held either in person at an organization’s facility or via teleconference. Falcon’s technical representatives lead the discussion with a collaborative exchange of ideas and questions from participants. Presentation topics are geared for anyone running operations in hash industrial settings. Topics covered include:

  • Important power quality considerations
  • Mission-critical application power requirements (SCADA, PLCs, automation)
  • High-temperature UPS design (on-line, double-conversion)
  • Safety agency approvals including UL 508
  • Environmental temperature concerns from –30°C to 65°C (-22°F to 149°F)
  • Long-life battery technology
  • Industrial UPS options such as NEMA enclosures

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), American businesses lose as much as $150 billion per year due to power interruptions. “Disruption of power to manufacturing processes, chemical processing, pipelines and other ‘always on operations’ is not only costly, but can pose safety and quality issues,” said Ron Seredian, vice president of marketing for Falcon Electric. “Understanding how using power protection that is specifically designed for the unique requirements of these types of industrial applications can go a long way in improving throughput and the bottom line.”
