Healy - Being prepared for shipboard electrical power on Healy

Electrical Power on Healy is different than what you are used to on shore.

Approved UPS Information

APC makes several types of uninterruptible power supplies (700, 1500, and 3000 VA) for shipboard use: http://www.apc.com/products/special_products/index.cfm. Only units that are marked for shipboard use are acceptable as these are ungrounded and equipped with switching to break both L1 and L2. The larger units are rack mounted. There may be other suitable vendors, but this is the one that I recall being quoted by MLCP(t) for backing up WHEC navigational electronics.

Approved Shipboard Surge Protectors

The ship will provide outlet strips if needed in the lab areas. Please talk to
STARC personnel or a Marine Science Technician about using the proper
power strip in the labs.
