The Series XC contains a six pulse rectifier/battery charger. Previous generation rectifier controls were seldom balanced, seldom stable with respect to firing angles, and were not designed to minimize harmonic content of the input current. This lack of precision and control resulted in distribution of harmonics whose amplitudes were not predictable.

Therefore, PS&C has developed a new Digital Rectifier Control Board to address this phenomenon. The new board eliminates all even harmonics and it makes the distribution of harmonics predictable. These two features alone would justify the design effort, but there is more. The Digital Rectifier Control Board easily maintains 1% regulation of the battery voltage and DC link, provides a timed current limit (walk-up), and accepts an input from an optional battery current limit board. In addition, it monitors the health of its power supplies the utility voltage, and has an upper voltage clamp to prevent excessive DC link voltages. The new Digital Rectifier Control Board is just one more example of our commitment to continually improve PS&C Products and Services.

Power Systems & Controls has a state of the art production and test facility located in Richmond, VA allowing for easy access to Washington, DC and the east coast. PS&C has the unique ability to support both static (solid-state) and rotary (motor generator) UPS, frequency converter, and power conditioning requirements as we are one of the few companies in the world that manufactures both types of technology. Power Systems & Controls is an employee owned company and has a long history of successfully supporting mission critical applications across the world. PS&C – The Power Is On!
