ABB Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is installed in the race series’ TV compound. It guarantees that power continues to reach broadcasters in the event of a grid power failure at a race circuit, ensuring that live race broadcasts never go ‘off air’.
There is no standard solution to meet the requirements of the fast-paced global championship, so a bespoke unit was developed by a specialist team. The resulting UPS system is wheel-mounted and weight-optimized for mobility, in a package small and robust enough to be shipped by courier or on a passenger airplane. It has plug-and-play functionality to simplify installation for the on-site team and can provide 15 minutes of autonomous 60kVA power with input/output voltages of 230/400VAC 50 Hz.
