Courtesy: ASCO Power TechnologiesASCO Sigma LT is a portable control system that offers operation and control of load banks during testing. The Sigma LT remote has networks up to 25 load banks using industry-standard CAN bus communications protocol. Operators can monitor and control all networked banks or a single unit in the network up to 800 ft away. This capability allows data centers to easily simulate hot zones to determine how an HVAC system reacts to temperature changes at specific server rack locations. An aluminum case protects controller components, and the screen displays 3-phase voltage, power, current, frequency readings, and selected load. It also provides true, de-rated loading when the working voltage is less than load bank nominal voltage. Data logging and statistical data can be downloaded to a USB flash. In local mode, the Sigma LT features a digital toggle switch control with LED display for full digital monitoring. Safety features in either mode of operation include over temperature and over voltage protection.
