The Site Services are specific surveys designed to promote maximum operating reliability for sensitive electronic equipment such as computer equipment, PC's, workstations LAN/WAN equipment /systems, POS, and telecommunication equipment while providing for a safe working environment.
The Site Services are not only standalone surveys but are also part of the Power Quality Program, Power Management Program, Electrical System Harmonic Program, and Electrical Maintenance Health Check Program.
There are many factors that determine how long the Site Services will take to complete depending on the size of the facility, the scope of the work, type of survey, and the program category selected.
Site Services is made up of three distinct surveys. These surveys are:
The Equipment Installation Evaluation Survey focuses on the installation methods that were used for the sensitive electronic equipment along with the data cable management practices. The installation methods are examined and compared to industry standards, applicable codes, manufacturers procedures, and internal company practices. This step is to determine if operating performance of the sensitive electronic equipment is effected by the manner in which it was installed. These two survey items can be performed as individual surveys as well.
An Operating Environment Evaluation Survey examines temperature and humidity, Radio Frequency Interference (RFI), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), air flow, static electricity, contamination and corrosion, and shock and vibration. This information is compared to industry standards, manufacturers parameters, and internal company specifications. This type of survey is conducted because a poor environment can adversely effect the operating performance of sensitive electronic equipment. These seven survey items can be performed as individual surveys as well.
A Lightning Risk Assessment Survey examines facilities that experience hardware damage and/or equipment failure after a storm. The electrical system, data cabling, telecommunication wiring, and lightning protection system are evaluated. This information is compared to industry standards, manufacturers parameters, and internal company specifications. This type of survey is conducted to reduce the risk of exposure to hardware problems and/or equipment damage resulting from storms.
