Multi-Master Power Management Systems
Loss of grid power - A matter of money, safety, and security
Loss of grid power can cause significant financial losses as well as safety and security issues unless a reliable critical power system is available. While PLC solutions have traditionally been used to control such systems, multi-master controlled power management systems (MM PMS) provide several advantages: they are cheaper to purchase and install, and easier to set up and maintain. Most importantly, the multi-master architecture means that such systems are supremely reliable even if a controller fails, providing uninterrupted control for applications where power failure is not an option. This whitepaper compares PLC solutions versus multi-master controlled power management systems (MM PMS) in critical power applications.
