Now that the innovative nrgSMART power management system can be integrated into the configurable Amphenol Network Solutions 1RU power platform, the ability to create the ideal distribution panel for your application is simpler than ever.
First, the highly flexible 1RU power platform offers TPA or GMT fuses, circuit breakers, high-, medium, and low-current options, connectorized or lug outputs, and more. So, what role does nrgSMART play, and why is it important?
Simple, Effective—and Essential—Monitoring
The new integrated design allows 12-/24-/48-volt monitoring, as well as alarming, and is powered via the A and B bus on the panel rather than as a standalone unit. Monitoring capabilities are non-service affecting, and cannot cause outages or disruptions to any equipment.
“Even if the system is unplugged or an alarm card (nrgSMART CTRL or SENS) goes bad, it does not affect the equipment being powered by the panels,” said Amphenol Network Solutions Application Engineer Jason Charette. “The monitoring is isolated from the power.”
Flexible in Design and Usage
In addition to the multitude of power protection options within the panel, users can deploy nrgSMART in a broad spectrum of applications. Install an nrgSMART CTRL unit in the panel as a standalone control unit, or interconnect the CTRL unit with SENS units in up to 30 additional panels over nrgNET serial cabling and a single network connection.
Another application is to use the nrgSMART panel as a CTRL while awaiting a BDFB in a larger application. The user can collect power data on currently installed panels.
“After installing the BDFB, turn the CTRL panel into a SENS panel and connect it to the controller in the BDFB,” Charette said. “The BDFB is the central controller, and the user has access to critical data from all the downstream panels.”
All nrgSMART panels share a common, removable alarm card for easy field servicing. Connectorized 1RU panels make installation nearly instantaneous and save valuable rack space by guiding rear-panel cables within the 1RU of space.
Additionally, utilizing an integrated controller eliminates the need for a separate controller panel—saving rack space and simplifying installation.
