|Product||Eaton 9390 80kVA UPS|
|Synopsis||A non-contracted customer submitted a request for emergency service for their Eaton 9390 80kVA UPS. As a result of their UPS unit in bypass, the customer’s southeast U.S. data center was down, which was impacting its global offices. Time was of the essence. Customer initially called the OEM, which quoted a 2-business day lead time. Due to the impact of downtime on the customer’s business, they reached out to Nationwide Power for a quicker resolution.|
|Preliminary Actions||The OEM was able to expedite the customer’s request and accommodate same day service. After the unit was operational, the customer requested a quote for annual maintenance and emergency service. The 15-year old unit had not been routinely maintained over its life.|
|Resolution||Customer was invoiced at T&M rates to bring the UPS back to an operational condition. Due to the strong relationship between Nationwide Power and the OEM, Nationwide Power opted not to pursue the customer.|
Nationwide Power recommends that all mission critical facilities have an active UPS service contract in place with a qualified UPS service provider. This ensures that all routine maintenance is performed as necessary, and the customer has access to the contracted emergency service response times.
