Case Study: The Semiconductor Industry Versus Voltage Sags
A semiconductor manufacturer in California was experiencing consistent seasonal disturbances from lightning and other weather-related incidents between January and May each year, exposing production equipment to volatile sags and risking costly down time. Facility engineers needed a way to manage risk and deal with numerous unavoidable sags. They also needed to compensate for sags caused by their utility’s routine redirection of power on the grid (switching).
The semiconductor manufacturer turned to UST, a world leader in industrial-grade voltage regulation, to help them minimize the impact of these unavoidable voltage irregularities.
