In the pharmaceuticals industry, power outage can cause major problems. Often, power is generated on-site by using auxiliary generator systems or supplied by emergency batteries. The lag time between the loss of power and the supply from the generator or batteries, is usually 10 – 30 seconds. This is a short duration in physical time but could be catastrophic in process loss.
Power surges, sags, electrical noise, harmonics, load, and other interferences can damage sensitive electrical components and accessories.
Microprocessor-based devices in the pharmaceutical process including controllers, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), PC controllers, and servers are susceptible to power interruptions and fluctuations.
This can result in violation of process parameters, loss of real-time data, loss of process control, loss of archiving data, loss of batch, loss of revenue, etc.
