It is important for standby power systems to function after a catastrophic event, such as
a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, or even a terrorist attack. In particular, critical-needs
facilities—such as hospitals, police and fire stations, emergency shelters, power plants,
airports, government facilities, and communications and operations centers—require
standby power systems that have been specifically engineered to withstand physical
shocks and multi-axis accelerations typical of these disruptive occurrences.
