CAT Selects PS&C

                                                 

Caterpillar Inc. also known as CAT” is an American corporation which designs, manufactures, markets and sells machinery and engines to customers via a worldwide dealer network. Caterpillar is the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives. With billions in assets, Caterpillar was ranked number one in its industry and Fortune 500. This year CAT procured over (3) dozen Series MC hybrid rotary UPS systems to help support their operations.

In 1965, Power Systems & Controls Inc. was actually established by CAT and Virginia Tractor in response to a need by Caterpillar to build a series of machines that would bridge the 8 second gap of time from Utility outage to the Diesel Generator being synchronized on-line. Based in Richmond, VA, PS&C has been working in the power quality field ever since. We at Power Systems & Controls are glad to have our roots from CAT, a great American company!

First Power Line Filters Ship

 

We are proud to announce the first shipment of PS&C’s Series PLF Power Line Filters. The Series PLF was designed to deliver clean isolated power into shielded spaces or areas that are not capable of housing tempest rated Motor Generator Sets. These filters range from 5 amps to 1200 amps in 2 to 5 wire versions; however, the 4 wire model is the most common. The Series PLF are manufactured with inductive inputs and capacitive inputs depending upon the customers primary loads down-stream of the Power Line Filter.

The newest models are rated for 100dB from 14K to 10G with a maximum of 1% voltage drop at full load. The Power Line Filters are delivered with lifting eyes and legs for the larger units to ease installation. The case is made from 14 gauge cold rolled steel with an isolation bulkhead that has a separate compartment for ease of clean side connections. The Series PLF can be mounted in any geometry and we are excited to offer this new product line to our dedicated USG customers and clients.

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.
