Canadian Government Picks Power Innovations for Homeland Security Protection

The Canadian government has taken strong steps to ensure continuous, reliable operation of essential airport security equipment in Canada's airports. As part of its commitment to enhance homeland security, and aviation security in particular, Canada recently standardized on Power Innovations large-scale Uninterruptible Power Quality (UPQ™) systems to boost the quality and reliability of power supplied for security equipment to 100%.

To provide the Canadian government's critical systems and operations with power quality and backup solutions, Power Innovations is partnering with the Baxter Group, a leading Canadian distributor of security equipment. Currently, the Baxter Group deals with the foremost Canadian government agencies to provide solutions that are at the forefront of technology.

Like other governments, Canada relies on electronic equipment for homeland security and other essential functions. "With Power Innovations UPQ technology, the threat of power shutting down or damaging our security equipment has been eliminated," said Scott Ray, Canadian Air Transportation Security Authority general manager.

Of necessity, passenger time in airports has already been extended due to proactive airport security measures. Additional delays due to glitches in equipment operation—caused by unreliable power quality or power outages—are no longer experienced. Power Innovations UPQ technologies provide prefect, dependable power to all connected equipment—regardless of the quality of incoming utility or generator power. These systems also provide backup power in the event of power outages.

The Baxter Group intends to integrate Power Innovations small and large-scale UPQ applications, ranging up to 320kVA, into every solution it provides.
