Goose Your Core!

Spikes, surges, brown-outs, black-outs, and other line-voltage anomalies. Ugh. They suck. Well, it turns out processors really hate them too. That’s why your Q-SYS Core needs the Juice Goose SCV series of on-line, double conversion UPS’s. True, double conversion UPS architecture completely buffers connected loads from incoming disturbances on AC line and neutral. 

This design also provides unconditional voltage stability regardless of problems on the local utility grid. They operate connected equipment from the batteries 100% of the time to provide clean, high-quality power and to fully protect mission critical devices such as AV controllers and processors, digital consoles, teleconferencing systems as well as communication, security and data processing equipment. Batteries provide a buffer to prevent even slight power disturbances from passing through the UPS.

Advanced processor circuitry has an output power factor of 0.90 to provide higher performance and efficiency to critical applications. High efficiency circuitry converts 90% of available current (amps) into real work (watts), reducing equipment and operating costs.

The purpose of the SCV 10001 is not just to provide back-up power, it’s also to completely buffer your Core from incoming disturbances on AC power. Don’t let poor power conditions, including brown-outs cause any problem to your Core! Call your Farm rep today!

Does your toilet paper unroll from over or under the roll?

Last month, 83% of our readers put their socks on first and then their shoes. For the 17% that do it the WRONG way by puttin' on one sock then one shoe and repeat, we know who you are and we have reported you to the authorities!
