#DontBeLeftInTheDark

#DontBeLeftInTheDark

 

Everyone must at some point experiences a Powercut.  That moment when you stand like a statue, a pregnant pause in life with a horror look of OMG we've had a Powercut!   You start looking for candles that you have either pushed to the back of a cupboard or you hear the moans of Not my new scented Candle!


By the time you have that candles lit, you are trying to calm the kids because there is no Lights, No TV, No Play Station, no Hair dyers and You cant boil the kettle to have a cup of coffee to steady those rattled nerves.


You're looking out the windows and doors scanning if your neighbours power is also out and then the realization hits you that the people you hardly speak to are looking back at you!


This scenario makes me chuckle, but only because its only one of many that scenarios that could make your electric power go off and there are so many people out there that are totally unprepared for most emergency events.


But what if said that when the lights first went out and before you even had a chance to fumble your way through the back of the cupboard that you could have power restored, peace restored and you could put the kettle on for a cuppa ... Just because your could!


I can say and do this because we invested in Backup Power for our Home!  


When our TV and lights go off, I sit there during the pregnant pause and then Genny starts the lights come back on ..... then I walk to the kitchen and put the kettle on .... Because I can!


Also, when a Powercut happens at work, we NEVER have to say ..

 

 


Why?  Because we have Backup Power!


But the statement of


Do you know that there are articles on the internet as far back as 2008 stating that the UK will suffer more powercuts as the Grid fails - we are now in those times predicted and powercuts are on the rise everywhere in the UK.  Are we facing a Blackout Britain?  


Someone explain the weather too.  The UK are now naming storms which seem to be getting more fierce as they crash into our shorelines with devastating results.  These storms bring more rain inland and mass flooding occurs with life altering events.  We even have Tornado's!


People laugh at Doomsday Prepper or Preppers in general;  I say DONT!  Being prepared in case of an emergency is a sensible thing.  If your Power goes off for a long time How would you cope without what we consider Basic requirements, which most people take for granted.... That's when you realise that being Prepared for any situation would of been a sensible choice to make.  But understand this, some people dont want to be helped and will always brush information aside, because it will never happen to them!

 

You have probably already Invested in Double Glazing, Cavity Wall insulation, maybe even solar panel.... Now would be the time to INVEST in some form of BACKUP POWER for your Home and maybe even your Business.

Automatic Changeover Switches ATS/AMF

Automatic Transfer Switches

 

Automatic Changeover Switches ATS / AMF

There are many applications in which it is essential to be sure of swift and efficient changeover to generator power when the mains power fails. In these instances you need an automatic changeover switch so that very little time is lost in the changeover.

We supply a large range of 3 and 4 pole automatic transfer switches (ATS) from 25 to 2500 amp. We also stock a comprehensive selection of 3 and 4 pole dual power automatic transfer switches from 25 to 2000 amp, for applications where a secondary backup source of emergency power is required.

In the wake of utility power loss—and surge—the load in your house is at the risk of being damaged or fried. This is where our load transfer switch swoops in, and lets the electronics in your house feed on generator power when utility power dies; and switches back to utility again when it’s revived.

ALL PANELS ARE RATED AT AC1 SO IF YOU REQUIRE AC3 OR OTHER PLEASE CONTACT FOR A QUOTATION

 

The Blades Power 100Amp 3Pole Compact against the same panel yet standard sized!  Could possibly be the Best Compact on the Market!

As you can see the Compact is ideal for Homes as it can be fitted in smaller spaces.

Well for one happy customer in Warwickshire, this little beauty is in transit today!

 


12v d/c Inverter changeover panel in a steel cubical This panel has been designed to do the following - The idea is that you can plug into a generator or mains supply through your normal 240v mains plug on your Camper Van, Boat, Or Caravan, when you are at a location or campsite.


With a flick of a switch, for travelling or at a remote location you can draw 240v power to the same circuit from your 12V dc battery supply.


With this panel we would use a set of 20 Amp 3 pole changeover contactors and a  d/c inverter ( this can be altered to your requirement).  We have an option for a battery charger to also be installed so when you are plugged into the mains it can trickle charge your battery's back to full power (this is an additional option).


This item can be used for any 12v d/c requirement and we are able to manufacture the panel to your requirements - Other Sizes Available Please contact one of our sales Team.

We only went and got Fibre Optic

We only went and got Fibre Optic

 

Growing up in the 70's and 80's when having a phone installed was a mega big thing.... like changing your old Black and White TV for a rental colour one; before the home line on the wall, we would rush to a phone box which was usually smelly to arrange hooking up with friends.

 

Marks first Mobile phone was a giant thing, that he carried around like a Battery Pack, soon after the phone shrank in size to a old walkie talkie with a solid ariel that could easily poke out someones eye.  In what seems like no time at all, we were on small Nokia's and now most people carry phones that store their whole lives on.

Mark was very proud of his phones - even the one we laugh about now!

 

Me personally - I dont do mobiles!

 

But, I am impressed with this Fibre Optic stuff!  I dont care that I have no idea how it works, and Im generally not overly that interested either, I even hate fibre optic Christmas Trees that change colour; but I do nod in the right places and say the Mmmm's, Oh's and Okey Dokeys in the right places, because Mark is.  

 

Living in a Rural setting has a tendency to be behind many new aspects of technology.  Sometimes I think thats a good thing, do we really need all these modern gadgets that separate us from family and ideas from the "Good Ole Days"  

 

I think even more though about what would happen if the Country suffered and EMP, or if the Grid went down - what would Fibre Optic do for us then during a Powercut?  

 

So I decided to google that question on my super fast connection.

 

The results were not that great really if you live Rurally! 

 

IT TOOK SEVERAL YEARS TO BRING ADSL BROADBAND TO HORSTED KEYNES, THIS PAGE RECORDS THAT STRUGGLE AND COVERS OTHER LOCAL BROADBAND ISSUES 

 

 

A WARNING ABOUT VILLAGE POWER CUTS AND FIBRE BROADBAND

 

However if the Grid did go down for a long time I doubt that the worry of Fibre Optics in a rural setting would be a priority to many - including the locals. 

 

Many would be worried about their lack of hot water, that their hairdryers wont work and that they cant charge their little phones that store their life neatly in files....but hey "Me Personally - I dont do mobiles" 

 

I also used that Fast Fibre Optic to see for myself that Powercuts are on the rise, are happening every day and that there are many reports indicating that we are in a time where we could loose the grid completely.

 

If the Grid goes down and the SHTF the people you hope will come to your rescue will be helping their own families with no concern for you!  

 

Now is the time to INVEST in your own Backup Power System, which is suitable for your Home, Business or just for an Emergency.
