Annex 10 / 4230 Building / BSC


On Wednesday January 7, 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 Bldg.) 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.  Air handling units and exhaust fans that serve the animal containment facilities will be off 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.

Interruption Schedule:

Commence Time:                  Wednesday January 7, 2015, 6:00 a.m. 

Completion/End Time:          Wednesday January 7, 2015,  7:00 a.m.
