New products for power quality and reliability

Digital multi-measurement, ground-fault sensing, data center solutions, and motor protection.

10/22/2007


Digital multi-measurement product line measures and monitors the electrical values primarily on switchboards, while providing energy metering and management. The device offers data access via pushbuttons, which allow users to reach any measurement without having to press any button more than four times. A backlit LCD allows for clear visibility and an ASIC chip ensures accuracy. The device is UL-listed and CSA-certified and comes with retaining clips, terminal blocks, and is available in a size of 96 sq. mm.

Ground fault sensing module functions independently with a magnetic branch circuit breaker and monitors the electrical circuit by using an external differential current transformer. The line of sensing modules is rated from 1 amp to 15 amps with circuit-carrying conductors from 1 to 3 poles. The line comes with an automatic or manual safe-start reset feature and when mounted the enclosure achieves a UL NEMA 4X rating and is UL 1053 compliant.

Data center solutions include power distribution units, gateway series 1000 cards and remote power panels, allowing information technology managers the ability to optimize power use for all levels of power distribution systems in data center. The line features an energy management system and an expansion on the power distribution and communication capabilities. For more about PDUs from Powerware, click here .

Motor protection device directly measures motor current, enabling it to model a motor’s thermal condition and identify excess current. The device is an option for motor overload, phase unbalance and phase failure protection. The device also features a 5:1 full-load amp range and is available as a stand-alone device with a current range from 0.1 amp to 150 amps and selectable trip class 5, 10, 20, or 30.
