MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 11, 2014 – Thomas & Betts (T&B)’s brochure, Electrical Solutions for Data Centers conveys the company’s product solutions for challenges typically encountered in the electrical systems of data centers, organized by product groupings that address specific concerns. The brochure provides solutions related to continuous operation and sustainability; power quality, efficiency and reliability; and safety, to name a few.

“The ubiquity of the Internet has made data centers crucial to businesses and consumers,” said Chad Smith, vice president, product management and engineering, at Thomas & Betts. “Running continuously for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, data centers now have 15 to 30 times more electrical density than other commercial buildings. These demands mean that downtime can cost as much as $350,000 for each hour of interrupted service. With stakes this high, data centers must depend upon business partners with the experience and innovative technology of Thomas & Betts.”
