HIPOWER SYSTEMS, a manufacturer of power-generation and power distribution equipment in the U.S. and Canada, today announced that Ancona Controls, a Michigan-based provider of Back-up power solutions, selected a HJW 205 T6U diesel HIPOWER SYSTEMS backup generator to provide power continuity of service for one of Michigan's largest cable/Internet providers.
"We are very pleased that our customers have recognized the high quality and value that HIPOWER SYSTEMS generators bring to the marketplace," said Ancona Controls Generator Sales Manager Dean Pellegata. "Ancona Controls is known for the high-quality products it offers, such as TOSHIBA UPS systems and now HIPOWER SYSTEMS generators."
The generator is ensuring reliable power for a "head-end" site—a master facility that receives signals (in this case, video on demand) for processing and distribution over a cable television system. Since 2012, HIPOWER SYSTEMS and Ancona Controls have been working together to provide, service and maintain generator-based backup power for head-end sites and other "backbone" cable and Internet provider sites throughout the Midwest market.
For the project, HIPOWER SYSTEMS mounted the generator on a 1000-gallon sub-base tank providing 60+ hours of runtime. The MDEQ Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ)-approved fuel tank was customized for the harsh conditions and specific codes of the state, with winterization equipment, external fills, vents and alarms. The generator is part of a complete continuous-power package that also includes DC (battery) power through UPS (uninterruptible power supply) equipment.
"In the Midwest, strong storms and power outages are a fact of life nearly year round, and the extreme cold in winter presents a further challenge," said HIPOWER SYSTEMS President Rafael Acosta. "Citizens don't rely on cable and Internet simply for entertainment, anymore. These connections support crucial information exchange during and after a storm event, and we are honored to work with Anacona Controls to ensure power continuity for the providers behind those services."
