New Products for Power Quality and Reliability


Trailer-mounted gensets meet EPA emissions standards and offer quiet operation. Units are designed for temporary power applications in sizes from 60 kW to 500 kW, and 150 kW and 230 kW models are certified to EPA Tier 3 standards. Customer interface allows quick voltage changes for flexibility and easier setup, with a minimum of 24-hour fuel capacity and 110% fluid containment. Reliable operation in ambient temperatures of up to 105 here .

Power and energy-management system software now includes a new module created for energy-intensive businesses and power-sensitive processes, providing new reporting tools. Web-enabled system integrates a Crystal Reports platform enables wizard-driven report creation, on-demand and pre-defined templates and real-time and historical data access. Output formats include Adobe, Word, Excel, Crystal Reports and HTML. For more about PowerLogic from Schneider Electric, click here .

Surge suppressor is designed to protect power-distribution, such as that commonly used in photovoltaic systems. Internal thermal disconnect devices help ensure safe isolation during sustained and abnormal events and at the end of the product's life cycle, and a set of voltage-free contacts indicates when maintenance is due. Units match common circuit-breaker profiles and fit into DIN-rail style distribution panelboards and control centers. For more about surge suppression from Erico, click here .

Switching power supply accepts universal input voltage (90 to 264 volts DC or 127 to 300 volts DC) and frequency (47 to 440 Hz) to provide a selection of standard DC positive outputs from 3.3 volts to 24 volts depending on the model. Designed for 1U installations, the new models address the needs of network, telecom, medical electronics and industrial equipment designers who require cost effective power solutions that assure reliability.With more than 550,000 hours of demonstrated MTBF, the series offers high efficiency and includes over-voltage protection on the main output.
