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.
