VAMC Martinsburg, IT Closets
Henry Adams provided the electrical engineering design for the power upgrades to 25 telecommunications throughout nine different buildings on the campus to support the installation of Real Time Locating System (RTLS) equipment to be installed by the VA’s IT department. Phase 1 upgrades included the addition of two NEMA L6-20R receptacles and two NEMA L6-30R receptacles in each of the telecommunications closets and connecting them to a standby power circuit backed up by a generator in each building where standby power was available. Phase 2 upgrades entailed reconfiguration of the building 500 (main Hospital) emergency power distribution system to be able to utilize the full electrical output of the generator which was previously hindered by a previous design/installation deficiency dating back to when the generator was originally installed. This design included a new manual transfer switch, new feeders, new switchgear, and removal of an existing decommissioned/abandoned indoor generator to make room for the new emergency power switchgear.
