MC West provides a variety of consulting services to clients in the mission critical infrastructure industries.   These clients include Fortune 500 & government data centers,  semiconductor, pharmaceutical  & other critical industrial firms,  TV & media clients, UPS equipment manufacturers themselves, and even other A&E / power quality consulting firms.   The majority of power quality problems in the USA are actually caused, not by utility problems, but by simple but oft-times very confusing grounding and wiring issues.  We can help you sort it all out and perhaps even avoid an unnecessary capital purchase of UPS or other mitigation equipment.
