Cheadle, UK, September 26th 2008 - Recognising that the most expensive activity that any manufacturer undertakes is unplanned downtime, HardwarePT has long sought to provide rugged solutions for industrial computing. The hardware division of SolutionsPT provides many valuable products and devices that will ensure that industrial systems stay available, and also provides product consultancy and value added services to its customers. Determined to provide complete solutions HardwarePT has extended its portfolio to deliver reliable mains power, without which all other efforts are ineffective.

HardwarePT required the right technology and a company that brought significant expertise to bear not just upon secure power but on to the special requirements that manufacturing brings to the subject. SPowerUK is a supplier of a vast range of Uninterruptible Power Supplies that is both scalable and can protect against all ten causes of disruption to mains supplies. Protecting workstations, industrial touch screen PCs, networking devices, servers and high availability servers, the SPowerUK range has the right choices to ensure effectiveness and value.

HardwarePT can offer complete ready-engineered solutions using tower and 19” rack mount UPS products, product packages that fully meet a user’s requirements and also individual UPS’s. Industrial computing requirements for UPS can usually be satisfied by single phase equipment, but where automation schemes include inverter drives and other power hungry equipment it may be necessary to also make their power supply secure – SPowerUK can supply 3 phase modular systems that offer outstanding value – and the possibility of extension if loading and protection requirements increase in future years.

Part of the active co-operation between HardwarePT and SPowerUK is the access to SPowerUK’s significant experience and advice – which is deployed to the benefit HardwarePT’s customers. In a directly similar way to HardwarePT, SPowerUK “thinks the problem through” ensuring that all aspects of an application have been considered and discussed.

Mike Lees, General Manager HardwarePT commented: “The provision of secure power is critical to industry and therefore to HardwarePT’s portfolio, we are delighted with the working arrangements that we have established with SPowerUK, their products and expertise.” Elaborating, Ernie Rothwell, Managing Director SPowerUK Ltd said, “the role of secure power to the industrial user has tended to be overlooked in many projects, we are pleased to be able to offer our products and expertise to HardwarePT’s customers, to bring the subject to the foreground and to be part of their continuous availability initiative.”
