There are several important reasons to monitor power quality. The primary reason underpinning all others is economic, particularly if critical process load are being adversely affected by electromagnetic phenomena. Effects on equipment and process operations can include misoperation, damage, process disruption and other such anomalies. Such disruptions are costly since a profit-based operation is interrupted unexpectedly and must be restored to continue operation.
The procedure for defining monitoring objectives differs by the type of study. For diagnostic monitoring to solve shutdown problems with sensitive equipment, the objective may be to capture out-of-tolerance events of certain types. Evaluative or preventive monitoring may require collection of several voltage and current parameters in order to characterize the existing level of power.
- 2RU Power Chassis configured at factory for fast, easy installation
- Choice of 2.8, 3.5 or 5.6 kilowatts of output power
- Accepts 48 or 24 volt DC hot-swappable ICT 700 watt Power Modules
- Integrated TCP/IP remote Ethernet communications for monitoring and control
- Up to twelve fully managed 20A DC load outputs (except 5.6kW model)
- Monitored outputs can be power cycled individually over Ethernet
- Dual 100A battery disconnect breakers with LVD (except 5.6kW model)
- Advanced battery management features including discharge testing and run time remaining (except 5.6kW model)
- HTTP/HTTPS, SMTP, SNMPv1/v2c/v3 protocols supported
- 100-300 volts AC input with Power Factor Correction
Sierra Rack secure AC and DC critical loads by taking energy from AC input (Grid) or from the DC Input (Battery). Sierra Rack System has been designed to give quality power, ease of use, and reliability. It can be installed in 19 inch cabinet.
- Secure AC and DC critical loads
- Peak shaving function which allows to define the limit of power taken from AC input. If the total load DC+ AC exceed the preset limits the system will compensate with the DC source (battery)
- 3 phase balancing (Available on 3 Phase Configuration)
- Low voltage Battery Disconnection (LVD)
