PS&C Portable Data Centers

 

In early 2000, when Power Systems & Controls first launched our complete Enclosure-Container-Shelter offering a focus was always on the development of a Portable Data Center that would fit in a 20′ and/or 40′ footprint. We felt that both our government and corporate customers would appreciate the flexibility offered by such a system, especially as the importance of data centers increases around the world.

PS&C is proud to announce that only after a few years we have realized such a system with our new line of portable data centers, including: Portable Reinforced Data Center (FEBR), Portable Secure Data Center, and our standard Portable Tactical Data Center. They come in a 20′ container, 40′ container, or stick built to specific specifications. According to Philip Heimrich in Engineering, “Portable data centers were a natural progression for Power Systems & Control as we have a complete line of UPS systems to support them and have been working with the data center industry for decades. We look forward to this exciting new chapter in PS&C history”

MEDTRONIC + PS&C IN PUERTO RICO

                                                     

Medtronic is the world’s largest medical technology company, offering an unprecedented breadth and depth of innovative therapies to fulfill their goals of stopping pain, restoring health, and extending life. Last year, millions of people relied on Medtronic medical therapies, which treated cardiac and vascular diseases, diabetes, and neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. Medtronic has a global reach that extends to more than 100 countries with almost 50,000 employees.

Medtronic contacted PS&C because they had a need for the best and most dependable Uninterruptible Power Supply system available on the market to backup one of their advanced manufacturing facilities. This important plant was located in Puerto Rico, and they decided to go with PS&C Series MC UPS systems with battery backup to support their critical operations. However, Medtronic was so satisfied that they ordered additional units a few months later. This second round of UPS systems were Hybrid Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply systems with Flywheel. This was one the first opportunities that PS&C has had manufacturing a Series MC with the flywheel technology as the backup power source. However, Engineering and Manufacturing were able to successfully collaborate to complete these two projects and earn another satisfied customer.

PS&C Synchronous Motor Generator

 

The Series SMG, Synchronous Motor Generator provides total electrical isolation from spikes, brownouts, voltage fluctuations, and electrical disturbances on the commercial utility network. This is accomplished via a coupling between the motor and generator. The Series SMG is the smaller brother of our Series IMG – Industrial Motor Generator. It also utilizes a synchronous motor where the Series IMG utilizes an induction motor.

Series SMG Benefits:

  • Single Feeder or Dual Feeder Applications
  • Little Disruption to Existing Service
  • Blocks All Line Disturbances
  • Motor Sized for Real Power
  • Low Installation Cost
  • Blocks Customer Electrical Problems from affecting utility
  • Isolated harmonics from supply side loads

Series RMC – Remote Monitor & Control

 

The Series RMC – Remote Monitor & Control – is designed to monitor and control diesel engines and automatic transfer switches (ATS) from a remote location, such as a PCC space. There is currently only one version of RMC available; however, we are already continuing development of the system to offer two new versions in the coming years.

The current version of the Series RMC is an analog version, which has analog voltage and analog current meters with selector switches, and two (2) keyed switches for the engine and transfer switch control. Illuminated lights with audible alarm are packaged in a NEMA 3R wall mount unit with a polished aluminum mimic panel. We feel this new system will have great success with our already established customers because of its simplistic yet effective design.

PS&C Wins In Southeast Asia

                                                       

Power Systems & Controls is proud to announce that our manufacturer’s representative in the Philippines, Remax, has won another project for PS&C in the telecommunications and banking industry. The system being procured is a redundant Series XC Hybrid Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system. It will be supporting a complex banking data center. PS&C competed against many static (solid-state) and other rotary manufacturers for the project; however, Remax was able to secure the order due to their successful past performance working with leaders in the industry, as well as, the superior benefits that the Series XC offered. We are excited to send another system to the Southeast Asian and look forward to what Remax has in store for the future!

“Ride-Thru” Design Enters Production

 

Power Systems & Controls is a power quality company dedicated to bringing together innovation and creativity to perfect our power quality offerings. Over the last six months PS&C Engineering has been allocating their time and effort into perfecting the new “Ride-Thru” functions of our Series IMG and Series SMG motor generator sets.

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 M-G 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 excited about this new feature and look forward to better serving our customers’ requirements in the future.

PS&C Introduces AVR

 

For the last few years, Power Systems & Controls had dedicated substantial Research & Development time and funding to the development of the Series GSR, Government Standard Automatic Voltage Regulator. The Series GSR is an extended range automatic voltage regulator designed to meet the high standards of the United States Government. It was put into development to meet a growing need by our USG customers and clients. Especially those customers stationed overseas where constant voltage deviations cause havoc on high-tech equipment and electronics.

The Series GSR is the most economical Power Conditioning solution available, and provides voltage sensitive load equipment with conditioned power that has been filtered for noise and adjusted for voltage. On a 480V system a 240V swing on the input will show up as less than a 50V change at the load. The Series GSR uses solid-state switches to select between seven (7) possible taps on the triple shielded isolation transformer. This switching takes place in less than a cycle. The system also provides protection from transient voltage spikes. It also comes complete with a system Maintenance Bypass Switch. Furthermore, the AVR has an array of options available to customize it to fit your specific application.
