Saunders Electric Awarded Engineering Emmy for Mobile UPS Power Station
Saunders Electric has set a new standard in providing redundant power for live sports and entertainment broadcasts with recognition by the Television Academy for its Mobile UPS Power Station. An Engineering Emmy Award honors an individual, company, or organization for engineering developments that considerably improve existing methods or innovations that materially affect the transmission, recording, or reception of television.
Here’s how the Mobile UPS Power Station works. If a land power outage is detected, the fully automated system seamlessly transfers the power loads to the Autostart generator. When land line power returns and is determined by the UPS’ internal sensors to be reliable and stable, the system automatically transfers back to land line power and shuts down the generator. Without interruption of power and without excessive burning of diesel fuel, Saunders Electric has devised an elegant, cost effective, and a green solution for electrical reliability.
Saunders first introduced this new mobile technology in 2010 with CBS show The Talk. It has since been used at such prestigious events as the Primetime, Daytime and Creative Arts Emmys, Academy Awards, Grammys, Golden Globe Awards, American Music Awards, NHL All Stars Game, NFL Honors Awards, College World Series, SEC College Football, American Music Awards, Big Brother, CMA Awards, CMT Awards, and many more.
Saunders Electric is recognized as the leader in redundant power systems for live broadcast television events, providing peace of mind since 1952. In 1995, Saunders Electric was awarded an Engineering Emmy Plaque for its Synchronized Load Command System which changed the way live broadcast shows were powered. This newly announced Engineering Emmy Award sets a new standard for Saunders Electric and the company’s achievement in powering live television events.
