Mt. Washington Observatory

The Mt. Washington Observatory relies on uninterrupted power to run its sensitive scientific equipment and take weather observations every hour on the hour, 24/7/365. Downtime is catastrophic to its mission of advancing the understanding of the natural systems that create the Earth's weather and climate. Plus, from a public safety standpoint, search and rescue teams depend on the facility to provide critical weather updates.

Prone to lightning strikes and other disasters, the Observatory must maintain power under extraordinary conditions, with energy costs that run 4X higher than average. The Observatory needed a cost-saving, 100% reliable UPS backed by service specialists who could meet extreme weather challenges. Find out how Eaton’s 9355 UPS and Eaton’s expert service helped the Observatory achieve peak performance.
