Always on, “blinkless” power ensures continuity of operations and guests are never inconvenienced.
BAM’s controls automatically switch electrical production as needed; no manual intervention required.
Remote monitoring and control capabilities ensure uptime and reduce mean time to repair should there be a problem.
In the event of a catastrophic failure the BAM system is fully by passable with a manual “Frankenstein” switch to transfer all loads to the diesel emergency back-up generator.
Full remote monitoring and control with limited remote serviceability means more uptime, less mean time to repair. Includes a full suite of usage data, both real time and historical, available anywhere anytime with your connected device.
Manual bypass to full generator support via” Frankenstein” switch in the event of an emergency.
System supplies 240/120VAC split phase and 480VAC three phase power
Built-in N+1 inverter bank redundancy. If an inverter were to fail, there would be no degradation of service. The system would merely alert us to the problem so the errant inverter can be replaced when it is convenient. BAM’s™ Inverters are plug n’ play, hot swappable so even trained on-site personnel can easily perform the replacement with no interruption of service at all.
