Power systems for every station were designed from the ground up to ensure continuous power availability for all the mission-critical systems.
We have N+2 redundancy at every failure point. All our stations are fed by a 3 phase 600 VAC. Our power grids feature 600, 208, 120 VAC anywhere in our stations that may be required.
Additionally our DC power plants allow us to provide DC power to the different carriers, backbone providers and telephone providers that bring services to our stations.
A main UPS that keeps power uninterrupted throughout the station during the transfer over to generator and back.
In Odyssey, our Montreal station, the main UPS is an “inline” APC 3 phase 208VAC 60kw. Equipped with 32 UPS Batteries it keeps the station running even if the generator power has failed.
In Nemesis our Toronto station the main in-line UPS is an MGE 3 phase 208VAC 25kw. Equipped with 24 UPS Batteries it keeps the station running even if the generator power has failed.
These same systems are used to power the towers at most major airports in North America.
Following the main UPS is a second Galvanic isolation transformer that feeds an industrial strength square D distribution panel. This panel feeds our monitoring station through individual 3 and 5 Kw APC UPS that feeds our equipment.
All our mission critical equipment, have 2 separate and redundant, power feeds.
As a minimum, our stations are equipped with 2 generators, a primary and a secondary.
In Odyssey, our Montreal monitoring station, there are two 35kw primary generators and a 35kw secondary generator.
All the power transfer switches in our stations are Kohler industrial units – 200 ampere, 3 phases.
