Eaton Electric Systems today announced the launch of an advanced new power system controller for telecommunications network operators. The SC200 V3, part of Eaton’s ‘Smarter Energy’ portfolio of products, integrates automated site energy control options that could save energy costs for many network operators.
Features of the system controller include:
- The The SC200 V3 power system controller uses the Smart Alarm, which uses Boolean logic to control individual network sites automatically, across a range of site variables to deliver optimised management for issues such as peak grid-power periods or cooling by automatically controlling non-critical loads, and intelligent management of cooling to reduce overall energy use
- 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. EFS is Eaton’s solution to expensive diesel fuel costs where it intelligently delays generator starts, first engaging the site’s battery bank to either bridge a grid power outage or delay the generator start for as long as possible
- The power system controller reduces diesel consumption, reducing need for refuelling visits, and reducing generator wear and tear and servicing cost
