Power Systems & Controls:

Frequency Converters | UPS Systems | Tactical Enclosures

Power Systems & Controls(PS&C), is an American manufacturer with World Headquarters in Richmond, Virginia. Since 1965, we have been manufacturing Power Products and Tactical Enclosures in support of the United States Government and Industry. Our manufactured power quality products include Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Frequency Converters, and Power Factor Correction products since the beginning. In addition to the Power Quality products, we manufacture Enclosures and Shelters used in many applications worldwide.

In addition to Uninterruptible Power Supply Systems and Frequency Converters, PS&C builds many other Power Conditioning products. Similar to converters, (rotary frequency converter and static frequency converter), most of our products have a rotary and static equivalent. The other power conditioning products are Motor Generator Sets, Power Factor Correction, Voltage Regulation, and Grid Stabilizers to mention a few.

Frequency Converters:

There are 2 typologies for Frequency converters. Rotary Frequency Converters are manufactured using a Motor Generator set. Static Frequency Converters are manufactured with a lot of small electronics and semi-conductors. Although each topology has its own merits, they can be used interchangeably. The Rotary Frequency Converters is a harsh environment industrial machine. Whereas, the Static Frequency Converters are designed and built for non industrial and less harsh applications.

Another hybrid product built is a converter that will maintain power output when the utility is no longer available. This converter is also a UPS, called a Frequency Converter UPS. Lastly, there is an option for the Frequency Converter to clean up a non stable input frequency. This application includes accepting a poor frequency range on the input and being able to produce a stable output. The Dynamic Frequency Regulator is a great solution to produce regulated frequency and voltage. This unit allows for a very unstable utility, while producing the required output.

Uninterruptible Power Supply:

An Uninterruptible Power Supply(UPS) only has one job. Keep the equipment power on when the utility power is no longer active. When a power disturbance occurs, it is critical for the Uninterruptible Power Supply to be in working condition in order to avoid an interruption in power. The uninterruptible power supply will continue to provide electricity to the equipment until the Emergency Generators turn on. PS&C offers Hybrid Rotary Uninterruptible power Supply and Static Uninterruptible Power Supply systems to our customers. This choice in the type of UPS is not common as almost every other uninterruptible power supply manufacturer only builds one topology, which inherently takes your decision away.

Tactical Enclosures

Our Enclosure and Shelters include SCIF’s, Modular Office Space, Portable Data Centers, Modular Operations Center, Forced Entry Ballistic Reinforced (HATS Certified), Tempest & Hemp Structures. Our shelters are Portable, Modular, and Tactical enclosures. This allows our products to be inherently expandable systems.

Power Systems & Controls developed our Portable Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) for the most covert clientele in the world, the U.S. Intelligence community. The sensitive compartmented information facility is a protected space. A protected space used to process Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). SCI is classified information concerning intelligence sources, methods, or analytical processes. PS&C’s portable Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF) are manufactured to the highest standards required by the United States Government.

What makes Power Systems & Controls (PS&C) unique is our ability to integrate our power quality systems into our Enclosures and shelters. This offers our customers a range of special application high quality products. With 1000’s of machines located worldwide, PS&C is the obvious choice for Power and Shelter products.

Our commitment to quality and our customers ensures we manufacture the highest quality products each and every time.
