When half of the lights went out on February 3rd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, an estimated 108.4 million television viewers watched it happen. This year’s Super Bowl between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers was the third-most-viewed program in television history, despite being delayed for 35 minutes in the 3rd quarter because of a power outage. Hours after the game ended, many people asked, why did this happen and who is to blame?
Unfortunately, down time due to power quality issues affects U.S. businesses more often than many people realize. According to a recent study, power issues and outages cost U.S. businesses an estimated $80 billion dollars in losses annually. From brownouts and line noise to spikes and surges, a variety of potential power quality issues means that no business is immune.
However, smart business owners can mitigate the risk of downtime due to power quality issues by requiring that their businesses use effective power protection products. The Venus UPS with Transformer-based filter (TBF) technology is the most effective solution to power quality problems. It offers battery backup as well as high performance protection against lightning, line noise and surges that cause catastrophic events and malfunction to the electronic equipment, thanks to the TBF technology. It also eliminates the need for multiple power protection units by providing 6 receptacles for computers, POS system equipment and other peripherals. If your company is looking for a way to take care of those power problems, the Venus UPS is your answer.
While the Super Bowl delay impacted many viewers, it should be a wake-up call to alert business owners the importance of prevention by utilizing power protection.
