ELECTRICS COMMITMENT TO HIGH QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE
RELIABILITY AND SERVICEABILITY (MTBF & MTTR)
Reliability is a feature that is designed and integrated
into every piece of equipment that carries the Nova
Electric name. This is accomplished by utilizing
"state of the art" circuitry which substantially
reduces the total number of components (especially
heat producing components). The result is greater
efficiency, high reliability and low cost.
The Nova Galaxy series UPS has
an MTBF of 30,000 Hours, as determined by MIL-HDBK-217.
In fact, a study of installed units has indicated
an MTBF of over 100,000 hours! MTBF figures are
based upon ground fixed normal 25-degree ambient
temperature and proper and preventive maintenance.
The MTTR for all items offered
is approximately 30 minutes. This is published
on the data sheets for the offered items. Part
of the maintenance and repair philosophy of the
units is to use the BIT equipment to aid in fault
isolation. At that point, a decision is made to
either replace an LRU within the power supply
with a spare. The MTTR value specified is based
upon proper training of local maintenance technicians
Nova Electric obtained ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System Standard Registration October 21, 2009. Initial Registration to ISO 9002 was granted after U.L.’s first assessment in 1997. This is a testament to Nova’s years of experience with formal quality control systems and procedures that remain in compliance with MIL-I-45208A inspection and MIL-STD-45662A calibration requirements. Third party laboratories are contracted for calibration in compliance with ANSI/NCSL Z540. In addition, operators and inspectors are certified to J-STD-001 and IPC-A-610 class 2 (formerly MIL-STD-2000) for soldered assemblies. Instructors on staff have been certified by the DOD to MIL-STD-2000 category C as far back as 1990, the year following release of this soldering standard.
Long before ISO 9000 became a marketing buzzword, Nova’s configuration controls, process controls, and ESD controls were approved by customers from both the government (military) and industry. Nova’s commercial (COTS) products benefit from the same quality system originally developed for our military customers.

GOVERNMENT QUALITY ASSURANCE
Our Quality Assurance Department
will be glad to work with the designated Government
Quality Assurance Representative (GQAR) on government
or military projects.
As is usually required for most
applications, we certify that there is no asbestos
material or mercury in our rugged AC Power Sources.
MSDS are available from the factory for batteries
used in our UPS Systems.
