My building is undergoing some electrical work this weekend, in which the power will be off for a few hours. The company offered generators for lab equipment that I'd like to take advantage of. I don't yet have a UPS.
The problem is, my IRMS is hardwired into the power conditioner, which is hardwired into the building. So, in order to set up a generator, they basically have to wire the generator to the breaker. This involves (they think) 15-30 sec of no power to the power conditioner and IRMS.
My question is: how long without power can the Delta V Advantage go before it vents? It usually takes a few minutes for my turbo to start winding down. Could I go the 30 sec, or even a minute without power? Or, is it just better to vent the instrument purposefully tomorrow night and not risk anything?
As always, many thanks.
