TVR Instruments Showcasing Power Management Solutions At Data Centre World 2019
- Published: Monday, 25 February 2019 16:42
TVR Instruments, a specialist technical distributor of low voltage instruments and power management products, will be exhibiting at the Data Centre World 2019 exhibition and conference at ExCeL London.
TVR Instruments supplies and supports a range of components that can be used on either the AC or DC voltage supply in a data centre installation. Combining the ability to monitor the AC and DC voltage supplies of a power network in a facility allows additional scope and opportunity to add reliability and enhance resilience.
Data centres are highly reliant on dependable, accurate and easy-to-use power monitoring management systems. Ensuring constant monitoring of a reliable power network is fundamental in maintaining an effective power protection strategy for data centre operators. During the course of operation, risks to the power network are unavoidable and can cause major implications for data access and data loss. As data centre downtime is unacceptable for any operator, it is therefore essential that operators incorporate a robust power monitoring and protection solution into their overall data centre design and operation strategy.
Tony Robinson, technical director, TVR Instruments said, "Data Centre World represents the ideal opportunity for TVR Instruments to exhibit and demonstrate a number of focus products that are paramount in providing power security and support infrastructure for new and existing data centres. Our extensive product portfolio enables TVR Instruments to provide state-of-the-art power monitoring and power protection solutions that data centre operators should consider to be essential." Robinson continued, "We hope to take advantage of this excellent opportunity to meet a wide range of operators, specifiers and potential customers to develop new business opportunities and provide a high quality service to the industry."
TVR Instruments will be showcasing and demonstrating a comprehensive range of power security, maintenance and monitoring products from leading European suppliers: Frer SRL, Adel Systems, Ziehl GmbH and Alfa Electric.
Measuring, monitoring and logging
A comprehensive range of measuring and monitoring instrumentation is offered by Frer SRL of Milan, Italy. Many of Frer's products are capable of being fitted with serial communication and can be remotely monitored via the Frerlogger software package. The Frerlogger software package is client owned and hosted, and enables 100% control of the system and the associated data capture.
Monitoring earth leakage
Frer also offers Type A, Type B and Type F earth leakage relays that provide constant monitoring of the earth leakage current and are capable of feeding this information back via a communication network to indicate the progressive increase of an the earth fault risk. All the Frer digital earth leakage relays have a pre-alarm and optional support for MODbus RS485 RTU. The Type B relay includes the monitoring of DC signals on the AC network and provides protection against harmonics and high frequencies which can cause a fire risk.
An RCD or tripping relay can present an effective though reactive response to a deterioration in the stability of the earthing integrity of the installation.
AC power supply protection
German manufacturer, Ziehl provides support for the AC voltage supply with a range of protection relays. Ziehl offer a comprehensive range of protection and measuring devices which meet the stringent requirements of many applications, such as transformer temperature monitoring, loss of mains supply protection, load and energy efficiency management, phase sequence and earth fault monitoring.
DC power supply back-up
Short-term DC power back-up is required to support crucial equipment until it can register a suitable error notification and safely close down or maintain essential loads until a technician can attend.
Manufactured in Italy, the Adel Systems product range is based around the use of the latest chipsets to optimise the monitoring and stability of the DC network. The CBI DC UPS series offers the combined features of a microprocessor-based power supply and battery charger in one integrated unit.
Adel Systems battery chargers and DC UPS products offer serial communications options, including MODbus or CANbus. This enables continuous monitoring of the DC network. Adel Systems battery chargers and DC UPS operate a constant monitoring of the battery bank, every 90 minutes when AC is present, running a load on the battery and a subsequent charger cycle to ensures that back-up batteries are in optimum operating condition.
As part of the temperature management of any power system, enclosure temperature control is essential. TVR Instruments distributes the Alfa Electric range of fans, filters, air-conditioning units, thermostats, hydrostats and enclosure heaters. The fans are designed to move from 26m3 up to 700m3 of air per hour. Alfa Electric fans are available as panel or roof mounting.
Application focussed solutions
TVR Instruments aims to provide a high quality products and service to ensure that an application appropriate power monitoring, management or distribution solution is successfully delivered and installed.
TVR Instruments will be exhibiting at Data Centre World on stand D501. Data Centre World is being held from 12th to 13th March 2019 at the ExCeL exhibition and conference centre in London, UK. For further information on Data Centre World visit www.datacentreworld.com
