Power Management Solutions
The Fathom Systems rackmount equipment is regarded as ‘mission critical’ for diving operations and for this reason, the racks are fitted with a battery-backed dual Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system – capable of operating the rack equipment for over 30 minutes with out any external power source.
The technique used for assuring continuity of the AC supply to the rack is to use two separate UPS units – and to connect them in series (i.e. the first feeding the supply for the second). This system is tolerant of most failure modes of either UPS – and allows time to react to a power failure.
