Socomec Integrated Power Solutions Latest Innovations On Show at Data Centre World
- Published: Tuesday, 05 February 2013 11:39
At this year’s Data Centre World, Socomec is showing a broad range of integrated products and services which have been developed to address what are considered to be four of the most critical power related issues in the Data Centre arena: Availability, Efficiency, Capacity and Flexibility.
Socomec’s latest innovations from its core business applications; Critical Power; Energy Efficiency; Power Control & Safety and Solar include:
The Green Power 2.0 - a transformer-less new unit. At 500kVA/kw the GP2.0 combines unbeatable energy efficiency with unity power to provide the ultimate “future-proof” critical power solution.
Also on show will be Socomec’s ATyS range - designed specifically for low voltage automatic transfer applications.
The ATyS M is designed to control switching between two single phase or three phase sources of supply in remote automatic or manual modes for emergency operations. This Transfer Switching Equipment (TSE) is designed for use with low voltage power systems with interrupted supply of the load during transfer.
The ATyS M 3s (RTSE) is the remote controlled version of the product. This is operated through an externally automated, voltage free contact in the three positions (0, I and II), following a pulse logic or maintained contactor.
The ATyS M 6 (ATSE) is the automatic version which controls supply and automatic transfers based on the configurable parameters.
The new DIRIS and COUNTIS ranges will measure, analyse and monitor network data at every level within the power infrastructure. COUNTIS E meters electric power consumption by loads, thereby enabling control and allocation of usage. It is MID certified and communicates via RS485.
Besides metering functions, the new DIRIS A multi-function measuring stations monitor and optimise networks by alarm management, monitoring distribution parameters and the remote control of electrical devices. They communicate via Ethernet and have temperature modules.
Also covering the metering and counting functions, the DIRIS N analyses the quality of the energy supplied in compliance with the criteria defined by standard EN 50160 and provides a detailed analysis of ‘pollution’ (for example, harmonic, inter-harmonic, transient, flicker effect...).
Completing the range, the DIRIS BCMS enables current, energy and power monitoring in Power Distribution Units or Remote Power Panels on up to 72 branch circuits.
Andrew Wilkinson, Managing Director of Socomec UK comments: “At Socomec we are increasingly looking at how we can integrate technology from each of our four business applications in order to provide systems that improve the performance of Data Centres. The supply of reliable, cost-effective power which can be scaled to meet the rapidly changing capacity demands of a Data Centre is the foundation upon which our clients’ businesses are built.
Socomec invests heavily in pioneering research and product design in order to deliver world-class innovations that solve our customers’ greatest challenges in terms of energy efficiency, reliability, business continuity and Total Cost of Ownership. We are excited to be able to offer fully integrated solutions, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and skills from each highly specialised division of Socomec. At Data Centre World we are looking forward to meeting with operators and managers in order to understand how we can work with them to maximise the effectiveness of energy usage within their facility. There will be representatives at the show from our main business applications, able to discuss integrated solutions drawing from the entire Socomec portfolio of products and services.”
