Bechtel Bettis Selects PS&C

                                                                

Bechtel Bettis is a nuclear laboratory in the United States. They have selected PS&C’s Series IMG Industrial Motor-Generator with “Ride-Thru” technology to support their critical operations. The “Ride-Thru” integrates state-of-the-art controls, a single shaft motor-generator, and a mechanical flywheel into a power conditioning system that can deliver up to 5 seconds of ride-thru during an interruption of power. The typical induction-synchronous motor generator system delivers this ride-thru with a maximum frequency drop at full load of no more than 57 on a 60Hz system.

For sensitive applications where tighter tolerances are required, the Series SMG is available with Ride-Thru. Systems with this innovative new feature are sized and customized to meet a wide range of customer driven application criteria. Systems are available in size ranges up to 2000kVA for low voltage and medium voltage applications. Also please consult our factory for 600V and other international voltages available. We are proud to support Bechtel Bettis’ nuclear operations!

PS&C Laser Communication Protection

 

The Series LCP is a Laser Communication Protection module developed by Power Systems & Controls. The Series LCP is utilized to protect communication between buildings and/or stations with not only surge protection, but also an “on-line” UPS system. This harsh environment unit has been designed in support of the “mission critical” USG or DOD customer.

PS&C’s Series LCP can operate in the most remote locations in the world where the power can move around the single phase 120V numerous times within a hour. As an option, the Series LCP takes an input of (220-240) voltage at 50Hz or 60Hz power and will deliver clean isolated 120V, single phase, 50 or 60Hz output. The standard output is achieved via 3 hospital grade duplex outlets and an isolated ground. The unit further protects the load by means of an input TVSS for the power and Ethernet/phone.

PS&C also equips the Series LCP with the capability of “Hot Start” directly from the battery in order to give the user a few minutes of power when no source power is available. Power Systems & Controls is excited to offer this new system to our USG and DOD customers & clients.

PS&C Protects Busch Gardens

                                                   

Busch Gardens recently decided to purchase PS&C static Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to support their amusement park operations. The Continuum UPS systems will be less than 100kVA, and will be used throughout the park. Busch Gardens was initially developed as a marketing vehicle for Anheuser-Busch and featured hospitality houses with samples of Anheuser-Busch products. They also included stables that housed many of the company’s Clydesdale horses, which have been associated with Anheuser-Busch since 1933.

Eventually, rides and attractions were added to the park and over time the park was developed into full theme park while still promoting Anheuser-Busch. Busch Entertainment Corporation, now called SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, was created as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch Companies to run the various parks in 1959. Power Systems & Controls looks forward to supporting another Virginia corporation, and we can’t wait to visit the park this summer!
