What Does a Critical Power Technician Do?

South Florida businesses facing emergencies with their critical power systems may not give two thoughts to the Field Engineer who shows up to save the day. Yet the critical power technicians we dispatch day and night are highly trained problem solvers with a huge list of skills.


When we enlist new members to our Field Engineer ranks, we look for technicians with at least 10 years’ experience in these areas:

  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): Because so many of the customers we serve depend on reliable UPS for operations.
  • Power Distribution Unit (PDU): Any company with sensitive electronics and data will use a PDU to distribute the cleanest electrical power possible to computer racks and network devices.
  • Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS): A backup generator does nothing unless the ATS works when the utility source fails.
  • Static Transfer Switch (STS): Essentially the same as an ATS but with no moving mechanical parts, an STS uses power semiconductors to kick in backup power.

Beyond the experience in the sorts of power systems EOLA Power handles, our Field Engineers have a good working knowledge of battery backups, single-phase and three-phase circuits, sealed and wet cell batteries and more.
