Asco Power Technology’s Sigma LT hand-held remote controller networks up to 25 load banks using fast and industry-standard CAN bus communications protocol. Operators can monitor and control all networked load banks, or a single unit in the network, up to 800 ft away. The capability to vary, accept or reject load on a single unit within a network is available. Single-unit control allows data centers to simulate hot zones to determine how an HVAC system reacts to temperature changes at specific server rack locations.

A 4.3-in. color touch screen on the remote controller displays 3-phase voltage, power, current and frequency readings, and selected load. Data logging and statistical data can be downloaded to a USB flash. The on-board controller features toggling for 3-phase voltage and load selection, metering, local and remote operation and operational mode, and a connection for the remote controller and other load banks. Safety features in either mode of operation include over temperature and over voltage protection.
