Football fans enjoy all the elements of the game – from the tackles, the touchdowns, all the way to the halftime show. Advertisers also spend a lot of money on commercial spots during big games like the Superbowl, as they know it hundreds of millions of people tune in to watch it.
For Football games to run smoothly, it’s important to have a stable power monitoring solution in place. Stadiums and similar sports venues should invest in an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system to deliver immediate backup and safeguard input power from disruptions.
In the United States, one company found a better way to monitor utility power for their back-up UPS systems and generators. Filmwerks International, a company based in North Carolina, provides back-up power solutions to numerous sporting events – from football games to golf tournaments. The company uses Fluke 3540 Three-Phase Power Monitors that are connected locally to the cloud. Since the company monitors hundreds and thousands of variables, they needed a way to isolate issues. The USP technicians use a mobile application and desktop software to send alerts for when systems are potentially at risk.
Filmwerks invested in eight Fluke 3640 FC Three-Phase Power Monitors. The instrument can be connected to a load, gather data and allow the technicians to analyze the data in real time. The instrument can also connect to mobile and desktop applications via a wireless network. This allowed the maintenance teams to watch measurement data as it gathers and receives alerts whenever the power surges above, or drops below, custom thresholds determined by the assigned technician.
The Filmwerks crew takes note of the baseline of the critical loads with their three-phase power monitors. It allows them to anticipate how much to load their equipment. The devices also archive data so team members can improve the performance of their system based on data collected weeks or even months prior, which indicates the power consumption of specific equipment. The power usage history is a key metric technicians rely on to stay ahead of potential problems.
As a result of the company’s investment in an advanced power-monitoring instrument like Fluke, it is able to support live sporting events and concerts without worry.
