On Tuesday the 6th of November 2012 we will be performing an on-load generator test at our Manor Coach House Aldershot facility.
This will involve isolating our data suite from the national grid and operating solely on generator and UPS power. This will run for an hour as we test generator operation and increase the temperature and pressure of the engine to test generator function.
This work is considered ‘at risk’ as there is a very small chance that there may be adverse affects from the test, however this is extremely unlikely. Carrying out tests of this manner are an important of site maintenance for any data centre and ensure that all equipment is operating correctly.
You can follow further updates about this test on our @CatNNOC Twitter account.
