Power management company Eaton has launched an Australian developed wall mount power system for oil and gas, mining, and transportation industries that require battery backed DC power.
The system is also suitable for industrial control, electrical switching and telecommunications industries as well any business that designs and manufactures large turnkey process control systems.
Traditionally, DC power systems have been rack mounted or assembled in large floor cubicles, however the new wall mount power systems require less space and come in a form better suited for industrial control and electrical switching boards, as well as small service closets. The system also comes with enhanced monitoring and control capabilities.
Today, many process control systems may also be located at remote locations away from access to convenient mains AC power such as remote railway sidings, road crossings, or gas plant well head sites. In those instances, PV solar power may be the only cost effective power source. The new mount power system can be configured for either AC Mains or Solar PV Power enabling a single power system type for both cases.
The system’s battery backup and redundancy can support the majority of process controls systems which use PLCs, valves, solenoids, switches and sensors that are powered from 24Vdc or 48Vdc.
It has an AC supply of 100-240V, 50-60Hz (nominal) and a DC output power range of 48V:2.00kW. Its operating temperature range is from -40°C to 70°C.
