Emerson expands in Australia

Emerson Network Power (Emerson) has secured a deal with Perth-based distributor UPS West to sell the company’s uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and thermal management solutions in Australia.

UPS West will offer Emnerson’s AC UPS Liebert NXC, Liebert GXT3 and the Liebert DM thermal management solution. The Australian company will also have access to trainings and technical resources of Emerson.

Emerson aims to make the company’s solutions more available to a wider marketplace.

According to UPS West, there is a gap in the supply of power and thermal data room solutions in small to medium sized businesses in metro and regional Western Australia.

"As we operate in the datacentre industry, we have found a need for the Liebert DM for small rooms in major buildings in the central business district as well as in regional sites,” said UPS West business development manager Ian Hart.

“UPS West is fast establishing a foot hold in the WA market by offering customers industry leading IT infrastructure and management solutions and we look forward to working with them as a valued addition to Emerson’s growing network,” said Emerson director of national sales Robert Linsdell.

This summer, Emerson appointed Bangladeshi company Computer Source as its distributor for UPS in the growing IT market of Bangladesh.

Emerson Network Power has appointed Bangladeshi company Computer Source as its distributor for uninterruptible power supplies (UPS).

The distribution contract is part of Emerson’s plans to expand its presence in the growing IT market of Bangladesh.

"Computer Source has a strong relationship with the Bangladesh channel community along with a successful history and robust distribution presence with a network of 1,500 (approx.) partners spread across more than 40 cities,” said Sanjay Zadoo, country manager channel business of Emerson Greater India.

The agreement aims to target the growing need of UPS and data centre infrastructure management solutions among small and medium businesses in Bangladesh.

“With Emerson Network Power’s reliable and highly effective solutions, together with our expertise in this model, the venture will help cater to the increasing businesses across the country,” said Abu Mostofa Chowdhury Sujon, director of Computer Source.

Earlier this month, Bangladeshi prime minister’s energy affairs adviser endorsed to increase installations of UPS across the country on large scale, as the demand of reliable power is growing.

Emerson PDU

Emerson Network Power has launched a family of rack power distribution units (PDU) to monitor changes in data centre power and capacity management.

The MPH2 rack PDU offers remote monitoring and control of connected loads. It is designed to enable environmental input options with multiple power input selections and output configurations, allowing data centre power control to the receptacle level, as well as monitoring of the strip and rack temperature and humidity. The MPH2 rack PDU is designed to operate at temperatures up to 60°C. The metering is at +/-1%. Up to four MPH2 rack PDUs can be interconnected as a rack PDU array.

The RPC2 communication module enables upgradable network communications, precision sensors and a display interface that be accessed locally or remotely.

“Intelligent rack power distribution units are becoming ever more important to businesses, which require ever increasing speed, intelligence and economy in their data centres,” said Dr Peter Koch, senior vice president engineering and product management, at Emerson Network Power.

Emerson claimed that the MPH2 has the highest level of availability and efficiency in comparison to other rack PDUs, based on a test run by DfR Solutions, an independent testing agency.

The product is available in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Emerson reveals 120kW DC power system

Emerson Network Power has expanded its 400V DC power platform with a 120kW power system for critical power applications.

The NetSure 9500 is designed for telecom, data centre and commercial building applications. The design shall enable deployment in various configurations, allowing scalable growth to avoid stranded capacity. An integrated distribution module faciliates extended load distribution positions.

The system provides a battery cabinet containing one string of valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries. It uses the same architecture like the 30kW NetSure system.

“The NetSure 9500 provides an alternative to traditional -48V DC power systems in the telecom space and to AC UPS systems in data centers. It also is a natural fit for commercial buildings, where DC microgrids that integrate distributed energy sources are increasingly common”, said Thomas Bennett, vice president of product management for the energy systems business of Emerson. Moving from -48V to 400V DC, reduces the costs of telecom providers by up to 80%, stated the company.

The first deployment of the product is by US-based Steel ORCA, which provides AC and DC solutions. “We recognise that the industry is looking for ways to maintain or improve reliability while maintaining or reducing cost,” said Dennis Cronin, chief operating officer of Steel ORCA.

 

Liquid molten salt for Emerson and SolarReserve energy storage project

Tue, 01/22/2013 - 17:36 -- Ruth Williams

Emerson Network Power and SolarReserve are collaborating to produce and store solar energy in liquid molten salt at the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project in Nevada. It will be the first project of its kind to harness energy from the sun and store it in this way. The 110-MW project is due to be online by the end of 2013.

Nevada solar park

SolarReserve’s system of 10,500 mirrors focus the sun’s energy to heat molten salt that flows through a central receiver, which sits atop a 540-foot solar power tower. The molten salt then flows up the tower where it circulates through the receiver and is heated by the sun’s energy. It then flows to another storage tank where steam is produced, using thermal energy, which powers a turbine to generate electricity. Excess thermal energy will be stored in the molten salt.

Emerson’s Ovation technology will directly control the circuit and heating process of the molten salt system, the water/steam cycle and auxiliary processes. The control system will also provide supervisory control of the mirrors and interface with the turbine control system. ?

Enough energy is expected to be generated to power 75,000 homes regardless of whether or not the sun is shining.
