Emerson Network Power Debuts the Critical Power Management System

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure debuts the Critical Power Management System (CPMS) to the on-site power industry. A CPMS provides unparalleled monitoring and control of all critical systems within a hospital, data center, telecommunications site or other mission critical facility or campus.

CPMS monitors and controls transfer switches, paralleling control switchgear, gensets, circuit breakers, power distribution and other gear so it can intelligently interact with a facility building management system. Also, it enables unlimited customization of monitoring and control throughout a facility or campus through the use of ASCO PowerQuest®.

CPMS differs from supervisory control and data acquisition  and electrical power management system in that it also encompasses technical service and support, which are essential to emergency power reliability and availability. In fact, lack of proper maintenance is the number one cause of on-site power failure to start. Incorporating these business-critical elements enables building owners and facility managers not only greater monitoring and control, but an increased life cycle for the on-site power system.

Emerson Network Power provides three fully customizable ASCO PowerQuest CPMS packages to help facility managers and building owners select the right system for their facilities. To enable better decision making, ASCO Project Managers will provide CPMS expertise to answer all questions and help guide the user through the installation, commissioning and operation of the critical power management system. The Support team assists the facility manager every step of the way to ensure a seamless transition to the new power management system. Finally, training is provided to the facility staff enabling a better understanding of the system and how it operates.

Other benefits the ASCO PowerQuest provides to a CPMS are interoperability, flexibility, scalability and centralization. Interoperability allows all components (up to 128 different components) to reliably work together. Flexibility facilitates configuring a power monitoring and control system for virtually any on-site power system. Scalability ensures system capacity can grow with future expansion and upgrades. Centralization provides the ability to manage and control access, resources and data security.

Since the CPMS provides superior monitoring and control capabilities to almost every facet of a facility, it needs to have appropriate safeguards and security. ASCO PowerQuest provides login security, three different levels of security access, an AES 128-bit encryption and firewall network security. The system also automatically logs the user out after a period of inactivity. Up to 100 clients can be registered for ASCO PowerQuest CPMS access.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications. “We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference. The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection. The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.
