Magnetek unveils compact energy stations

Los Angeles, CA—Magnetek Inc. has introduced two new compact energy stations for wireless telecom base stations, roadside terminals, remote switching cabinets, and other installations requiring compact, modular dc power.


Los Angeles, CA7#151; Magnetek Inc. has introduced two new compact energy stations for wireless telecom base stations, roadside terminals, remote switching cabinets and other installations requiring compact, modular dc power. Magnetek develops digital power components and systems.

Packing either 2,000 or 3,000 watts, the two stations slide into standard rack shelving. The 2,000-watt model is 3.5 inches, or '2U,' high, and the 3,000-watt model is 5.25 inches, or '3U,' high. Each station’s power density is nearly 3 watts per cubic inch, which Magnetek reports makes them the most powerful standard energy stations of their size. Both units automatically convert a wide range of ac input voltages into reliable 48 V dc output. Both feature modular redundancy, and individual rectifier modules can be added, removed or replaced without shutting anything down.

Adding to their high reliability and suiting them ideally for outdoor installations, both models operate in temperatures from at least -20 °C to +55 °C. Operational with or without battery back-up, they include easily programmable local and remote control, communications and battery management capability. Remote control is facilitated with Windows-based software.
