Case Study: Sentryum Passes Airport Test With Flying Colours
A 15 kVA version of our Sentryum online UPS series is protecting critical IT and operational equipment in the main communications room at Belfast International Airport.
The hub is the second largest on the island of Ireland and ranks in the top 10 of all UK airports by passenger volumes. Operators including easyJet, Jet2.com, and Ryanair use the facility to fly to UK mainland sites and popular holiday destinations including Alicante, Amsterdam, Faro and Malaga.
The mission-critical site has several uninterruptible power supplies to provide backup power to its crucial operational systems and IT equipment.
One such UPS, a 10 kVA, was approaching the end of its service life and required replacing.
Certified Riello UPS reseller and service partner Ashdale Engineering Ltd has a 20-plus year working relationship with the airport, supplying and maintaining several of the UPSs already on site.
The company identified the Sentryum as the ideal solution, using a Compact (CPT) cabinet taking up less than 0.25m2 floor space in the site’s main comms room.
The system upgrade also saw an external wrap around bypass fitted with the new Sentryum unit wired to it, thus enabling the load and supply cables from the existing setup to feed into the new bypass arrangement.
