Restaurants - Special Needs

Restaurants face many of the same concerns that a small business faces. Point-of-sale terminals, transaction verification, motor loads turning on and off, etc. On top of all this is the uniqueness of food storage, food preparation, and service.

Food storage involves refrigerators and freezers which are primarily motor loads. Heavy motor loads mean the probability of sags and transients. Cooking means ovens and stoves - large resistive loads which will cycle for temperature control, also creating sags. Service issues run the gamut from electronic order taking to ambiance lighting systems. Often the service side has sensitive electronic devices which, if fail, cause obvious problems with the clientele.
