Anord's Data Center Safety Expertise Tapped for AFCOM Columbus Symposium

VP John Day Advocates the Need for Safer and More Efficient Switchgear Devices

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2014) - Anord Critical Power, Inc., a leading independent provider of critical power infrastructure to the global data center industry, today announced that company Vice President of Sales and Marketing, John Day, has been selected to address attendees at the AFCOM Symposium Columbus 2014, November 11, COSI Columbus, Ohio. Day's presentation will focus on the operational and safety benefits realized from next-generation switchgear, while underscoring the UL Form 4b Type 7 AMS switchgear advantages now available in the U.S. market.

As part of Day's discussion with AFCOM attendees he will emphasize the importance of worker safety at any mission-critical facility and that, "to help mitigate the risk of personal injury, today's data centers need to embrace low-voltage switchgear to prevent worker exposure to live parts. This allows employees to maintain them without the risk of shock and without the need to de-energize large portions of the data center."

The Anord AMS switchgear is designed and developed to enhance safety and reduce the risk of shock. Additional switchgear features include:

  • Availability of bus-bar systems rated up to 5000A 100 kA RMS
  • Independently seismically tested equivalent to seismic Zone 4
  • Ingress protection (IP) ratings are available from IP-31 to IP-54
