The ICT Distribution Series 2 DC Distribution Panels are designed to be used in 12, 24 or 48VDC applications. All models feature 12 fused output positions. For +12/24VDC models, nine outputs are ATO/ATC type fuses rated at up to 25 amps each, and three are JCASE type fuses rated at up to 40A each. For +/- 48VDC models, 12 outputs are GMT type fuses rated at up to 15 amps each. Fuses and LED indicators are located on the front, enabling easy monitoring and replacement.An integrated security protected Ethernet communications port (select models) allows the panel to be monitored from a remote site using an industry standard web browser. HTTPS and SNMP V1/V2c/V3 protocols are supported. System current, system voltage, individual output currents and fuse status can be monitored, and alarms can be sent to multiple email accounts.
DC outputs can be turned on and off remotely (select models), allowing connected loads to be power-cycled using the Ethernet connection. Automatic load-shedding can be defined to protect critical loads. A network watchdog feature will ping up to two I.P. addresses and power-cycle loads such as routers which may need rebooting to restore communications with the site.
All models come with a 2-year warranty. Intelligent and Broadband models are Ethernet enabled for remote monitoring, and the Remote Power Control models allow remote shutdown or power-cycling of individual outputs, potentially saving unnecessary service call-outs. Firmware can be updated remotely over the web. Five digital input contacts allow site monitoring sensors like door, smoke, and water alarms to be named, monitored and reported over Ethernet. Form C outputs are provided on all models.
Intelligent and Broadband models are Ethernet enabled, and utilize a built-in Ethernet connector and integrated web server to allow users to remotely monitor load conditions at the panel. System voltage and current, as well as the current reading of each output, can be monitored. This can provide an indication of a problem with the system power, or with individual connected loads such as radios, repeaters, or RF amplifiers. Text or email alerts can be sent when an alarm is triggered. Up to 30 days of data logging is provided.
Remote Power Control models allow the individual DC outputs to be turned on and off remotely using the Ethernet connection. This allows connected devices to be turned on and off or power-cycled, potentially averting the need for an on-site service visit. The Network Watchdog feature pings a designated I.P. address and will restart an assigned output automatically, allowing devices such as routers to be power-cycled to avoid losing communications to the site. Load shedding is provided with user-definable settings for each output, allowing non-essential loads to be automatically shut down in order to prolong power to priority loads.
Fuses are mounted on the front to facilitate easy replacement. Alarm LED indicators and Form C alarm contacts are provided on all models to assist with troubleshooting and fault detection. Heavy-duty stud connectors are provided for the main DC inputs, and space-saving terminal blocks are used for the outputs. All Ethernet-enabled models have an intuitive, easy to use Graphical User Interface that can be accessed from a standard web browser (no software required). SNMP allows for autodiscovery and trap reporting for users with Network Management Systems.
What if you could do this without physically visiting the site? What if you could do this from the comfort of your office, from your laptop, from your smartphone? ICT products offer this flexibility.One of the key advantages of wireless broadband – providing high-bandwidth internet access to remote customers – can also present challenges, especially when a remote site experiences a technical issue. This often necessitates a visit to the site by a technician to troubleshoot the problem. In some instances, the issue can be resolved simply by power cycling power to a troublesome device.
Ethernet communication options, which allow users to remotely monitor DC power conditions at a site, and if needed, remotely power cycle the connected devices. ICT products also allow you to disconnect non-critical devices in order to preserve battery life in the event of an AC mains failure. All this can be done manually via a desktop PC, laptop or smartphone, or can be preconfigured to occur automatically based on parameters you set. No additional software is required, just a standard web browser. And should any alarm condition occur at your site, such as a low battery voltage, for example, ICT products can notify you by sending a text message or email to you directly.
Minimize your downtime, reduce costly site visits, and have peace of mind in knowing what DC power conditions exist at your site. ICT products provide tremendous features to benefit you, your business, and most importantly, your customers.
|I wish I could avoid having to travel to a site just to power-cycle a radio or router.||ICT Distribution Series load panels allow you to turn each of the 12 outputs on and off remotely over Ethernet using the built-in web browser. ICT Ethernet-equipped power supplies and inverters can also be monitored and the outputs power cycled remotely. If your site has an Ethernet link, then virtually any device or load can be managed remotely using ICT power products, often saving unnecessary trips to the site.|
|More and more I am seeing 24 and 48 volts being needed at the same time. How can I get full manageability for dual voltages?||ICT Distribution Series 3 is a dual bus load panel that will support multiple voltages and polarities at the same time, such as -48 volts and +24 volts DC. Intelligent models allow each of the 12 outputs to be turned on and off remotely over Ethernet.|
|If my router locks up, I lose communications to the site and I have no choice but to travel to the site to reboot it.||Distribution Series 2 and Series 3 load panels have a network watchdog feature that routinely pings the router’s I.P. address. If the router stops answering, the ICT panel will perform an automatic power cycle on that device, often saving an unnecessary trip to the site.|
|It would be beneficial to receive email alarms and alerts to warn of low battery voltage, load current changes, or troubles with any of my connected loads at the site.||ICT intelligent load distribution panels allow you to set parameters for each of the 12 outputs, and will send you an alarm email if any of the thresholds are reached.|
|I would like to have site monitoring that emails me if a door, smoke, or water alarm gets tripped, but solutions can be quite expensive.||ICT Distribution Series 2 and Series 3 load panels provide five digital inputs that allow for sensors to be connected to it, allowing remote monitoring and email alerts to be sent. You can even assign unique names to each of the alarm inputs.|
|I would like to have a system that would automatically load shed non-critical loads if AC power goes out, in order to prolong the backup battery life.||ICT Distribution Series 2 and Series 3 load panels allow you to set any output to automatically shut down at pre-determined voltage levels. You can leave your most critical loads powered on after non-essential loads have turned off.|
