Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy
for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions
and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction
is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection
strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as
well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available
solution categories and application guidance based on experience
in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist
engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles
to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses
the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities
and provides tools that help users develop effective protection
strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.
In 2010, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota underwent a renovation at its Minneapolis facility. The goal was to transform the entire location into a place where patients and families – who previously received care in a shared-space environment – would enjoy private, family-centric rooms. Such a renovation would also transform the way staff worked together. Minnesota Children’s used the project as an opportunity to reevaluate its entire workflow and communications infrastructure.
Read this case study to learn how Minnesota Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota implemented AeroScout® Real-Time Staff Visibility Solutions to achieve a quieter patient environment, enhanced safety, and improved workflow.

What does it look like when all workers at your manufacturing facility can communicate and coordinate
seamlessly from any location, device or network? The time is NOW to imagine a world where devices, networks, and
locations don’t matter. A world where workers from production lines, to plant managers, engineers, security and beyond can
communicate effortlessly and instantly, both on and offsite.
A Unified Team Communications solution from Motorola Solutions is what’s NEXT for your facility to make this all possible.
This guide was created to help you experience how each and every staff member can work smarter, safer, and minimize
unwanted downtime when equipped with intelligence driven communications solutions.
See how Unified Team Communications powers the collaboration between all these workers to
create the next-generation in smart connected manufacturing:

When designing a power protection scheme for their data center, IT and facilities managers must ask themselves whether a distributed or centralized backup strategy makes more sense. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to that question.
Companies must weigh each architecture’s advantages and disadvantages against their financial constraints, availability needs and management capabilities before deciding which one to employ.
This white paper will simplify the decision-making process and lessen the potential weaknesses of whichever strategy you ultimately select.
