Falcon Electric, Inc., a manufacturer of online uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), and the International Society of Automation (ISA) will co-present a Webinar titled “Protecting Automated Systems in Harsh Environments,” from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT, April 30, 2013.

This instructive webinar is designed  to educate electrical design engineers, system designers, and plant/maintenance managers on how to protect automated systems against disruptive and costly power interruptions in harsh environments such as oil and gas, transportation, manufacturing, green energy among others.

Session presenters include power industry veteran, Michael A. Stout, vice president of engineering at Falcon Electric and a highly recognized authority on computer and industrial automation, and power conversion; and Lawrence Thompson, an ISA subject matter expert and author who has extensive career and teaching background in electronics, measurement and control, and computer networking.

“We are excited to partner with ISA and have the opportunity to reach out to control professionals and decision makers in the industry,” Ron Seredian, vice president of marketing for Falcon Electric, said in an announcement. “Both Falcon and ISA want to educate automation experts about more reliable ways to safeguard power in rugged environments.”

Due to the rapid developments in automation, Falcon and ISA have developed the webinar with the goal of bringing industry experts to the forefront of power innovation. The Webinar will cover key topics including information about control systems and the growth of ac-based automation. In addition, presenters will discuss best practices in selecting Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) to operate in harsh -30 C to 65 C temperatures, and the specific power load and temperature demands of harsh environments.
