Copper Protects MIT Computer Center

When one of the nation’s leading technical institutes sets out to design a new center for computer, information and intelligence sciences, top-quality electrical power was high on the list of must-have features. Why? Because all of the sensitive electronic equipment in the center would need clean, stable power, or the equipment simply would not work as it should. And so, in 1999, when the Massachusetts Institute of Technology began planning the Ray and Maria Stata Center as part of its campus redevelopment program, planners gave very careful attention to the new structure’s electrical and grounding systems.
