“In fact, one of our first docking station sales was to Boeing’s Data Center in Charleston, SC, that supports its 787 Dreamliner project. Boeing’s set-up was essentially the prototype for the Tampa General system.
“We also do all of the UPS systems for Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space program in Cape Canaveral. All of their facilities use the Trystar docking stations we supply for both portable generators and load bank UPS testing.”
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities also are major customers for PowerLogics-supplied docking stations, Aldrich says. In Florida these tend to be very large installations and many of them run on 208 volts rather than 480 which means the docking stations have to handle very high amperage loads. Trystar docking stations are available for loads up to 5000A and PowerLogics has supplied several of these high-capacity Trystar units to Florida customers.
PowerLogics, she says, also supplied a smaller, 3000A single breaker Trystar docking station to Mt. Sinai Hospital in Dade County, Florida. The hospital is located in a low-lying area near Miami that is susceptible to flooding during severe storms and can experience power outages. The Trystar docking station is connected to a large back-up generator via an automatic transfer switch.
