Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Electric Systems have launched an advanced new power system controller for telecommunications network operators. The SC200 V3 includes automated site energy control options.
The new DC power system controllers introduce two site-programmable options that provide greater network energy control. These options can be applied to many operator needs.
One key feature of the DC power system controllers, Smart Alarms, uses Boolean logic to control individual network sites automatically, across a range of site variables to optimize management for issues like peak grid power periods or cooling by automatically controlling non critical loads, and intelligent management of cooling to reduce energy use.
Another feature of the DC power system controllers is the Eaton Fuel Saver (EFS) for hybrid network sites using a diesel generator as a backup to a poor alternating current (AC) grid supply, or where the site runs entirely on generator, 24 hours a day, every day. EFS reduces diesel consumption, reduces the need for refuelling visits, and also reduces the wear and tear on generators.
Stefan Buerki, marketing manager of Telecommunications Power Solutions, Eaton’s electrical business says, “The new smarter energy features of the new version 3 SC200 system controller further illustrate Eaton’s commitment to developing solutions that help customers achieve lower operating costs and a reduced carbon footprint.”
