Portions of the data center market have had recent challenges, however, the expansion rate and demand for reliable power in the market continue. Ground faults and insulation failures are common industrial and critical power failures that can be detected and monitored to improve system reliability. The system grounding in North America is often a mixture of ungrounded DC, solidly grounded AC, and resistance grounded. This may vary by company or by voltage level.
Join us for this webinar to discover more about Bender's solutions for North American data centers.
