The Solidstate Controls client services department leads various technical training classes and seminars throughout the year. Attendees will learn about either Digital Process Power (DPP) or Ferroresonant (Ferro) industrial Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and battery systems, see how they work, receive troubleshooting techniques and tips and learning about routine maintenance and monitoring.

UPS Training
Gain a better understanding of how industrial UPS systems work and how to maintain them. Our training classes include:
  • UPS Basics
  • Preventative Maintenance
  • Detailed Principles of Operations
  • Failed Component Identification
  • Tips and Techniques for Troubleshooting
  • Practical Hands-on-Labs
Stationary Battery Training
Our battery lab provides practical hands-on training. In these training sessions, our staff will cover a wide array of topics. They will include, but are not limited to:
  • Battery Basics
  • Troubleshooting Tips and Techniques
  • Performance Monitoring
  • Battery Maintenance
Who Should Attend Our Training Courses?
Plant personnel responsible for maintaining the systems will benefit with an increased knowledge of the system. Instructors will demonstrate troubleshooting techniques to make quick, accurate, and effective repairs. Preventive maintenance techniques will be demonstrated to allow the equipment to operate at maximum reliability levels.

With a thorough knowledge of the systems, supervisors will be better able to schedule routine maintenance and determine manpower requirements.

Plant engineers will be able to make educated decisions when specifying and installing new equipment.

Operators will gain confidence in operating the equipment and be able to make sound decisions when presented with alarm conditions.

Who Presents the Information?
Our instructors are senior level support engineers and consultants that will provide information taken from years of field experience. Participants will solve problems based on the instructors’ personal case studies. Demonstrations and workshops will use scaled-down systems as part of the presentations. Proper use of test equipment will be demonstrated to aid in troubleshooting.
