Designed for both ICT and M&E operatives, this one day course focuses on the concepts of redundancy, concurrent maintainability and fault-tolerance in standards such as EN50600 and TIA-942-A and how that translates into single-line drawings. Whether you have a new or existing facility, the single-line diagram is the vital roadmap for all future testing, service and maintenance activities
The single-line diagram is like a balance sheet for your facility and is the first step in preparing a critical response plan, allowing you to become thoroughly familiar with the electrical distribution system layout and design in your facility. The aim of the course is to enable the student to translate the information on SLDs into a clear understanding as to the concurrent maintainability and fault tolerance features of a given data centre.
