Starline Busway's Customizable Power Distribution

by Erica Muzzy on 1/17/18 8:06 AM

I've had the opportunity to work on a lot of projects involving Universal Electric Corporation’s Starline products, ever since our company began representing them a little over a year ago. The Starline Busway, one of their leading products, continues to deliver in its promise of simplifying power distribution needs. Our customers are so ecstatic with their installations and are happy to show off.

It's able to be so versatile because it allows customization for your data center’s specific power distribution needs. Busway amp sizes run from 100A to 1200A and can have dedicated ground and/or oversized neutral. Also, hot swappable bus plugs can be designed to have different receptacles or drop cord connectors made to order.

Check out the video below to see the Busway in action, and please reach out to me at 215-826-1133 to learn more.

Refrigerant-22: Is Your Data Center Ready for 2020?

by Jodi Holland on 3/23/17 1:30 PM

What does this mean for you?

Liebert-DSE_3qvl_002-1.pngCost and Availability
Currently the price of R22 is 7X the cost of current refrigerants (R407C and R410A) and increasing every day, AND many supply houses are limiting the quantity per sale to avoid stock piling. Reclaimed R22 will be available after 2020, but its price is expected to increase.

Options to Eliminate R22 at Your Facility
What can you do if you currently have Data Center Air Conditioners with R22? Now is the time to plan for the future. You essentially have 3 choices:

  • Stick it out with R22 knowing that future repairs will be expensive
  • Retrofit the unit with a new refrigerant…This is not recommended due to potential incompatible piping, devices, loss of capacity, and a decrease in efficiency
  • Replace the units with new compliant refrigerants units that are designed to deliver higher efficiencies. The Vertiv™ Liebert® DSE is a great choice. As a PECO Trade Ally (hyperlink), we can provide assistance to obtain the maximum rebate for your investment in new air conditioners.
