Government - Special Needs

We tend to think of government offices residing in old historic buildings and employees using mostly antiquated equipment. While some of that is true, many city, state, and federal office buildings also have incredibly sophisticated electronic gear, and therein lies the chief concern.

The marriage of the old with the new is a large part of many power quality problems in this arena. There's just enough money to get the needed computer system, but not enough to properly wire it in, install it, and protect it. Maintenance on the power system is seldom done, so any system degradation, such as might occur from harmonic distortion, isn't found until it's too late.
