Power Conditioning Battery Backup Power UPS Protects Agilent ICP-OES From Utility Transformer Explosion

Battery Backup UPS For Agilent ICP-OES

A Battery Backup Power, Inc. power conditioning UPS (model: BBP-ADV-10000-PSW-ONL-L650P-115230PDU) protected and Agilent ICP-OES from a utility transformer explosion at a rural Texas lab in April 2020. The lab manager at the site explained the event as "a utility transformer across the road blew up".

Despite the transformer sending a large surge of power through the lines which damaged other unprotected equipment, the Agilent ICP-OES survived the event as the UPS it was attached to absorbed the surge and successfully protected the instrument.
