Annex 10 – 4230 Building

ELECTRICAL POWER INTERRUPTION (Data Center Only!)

On Thursday, March 12, 2015, the required monthly testing of the Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS), as a component of our emergency power generation, will begin at 0600 hrs. in Annex 10 (4230) and should be complete by 0700 hrs. Please remember that the testing can have an impact on all equipment plugged into the red “emergency” outlets as the transfer switches are shifted into the testing position and then again as the switch is moved back to “normal”.  This work will not affect “normal” receptacle outlets, computers, and/or lighting that are not connected to “emergency” back-up power.  ITS Data Center power will blink for two brief periods during the power transfers, but will continue to operate. This shut off is required for routine performance testing of the automatic transfer switches per NFPA 110.

Commence Time:    Thursday, March 12, 2015, at 6:00 a.m. (0600)

Completion Time:   Thursday, March 12, 2015, at 7:00 a.m. (0700 hrs.)                                        (approximately)
