Emerson Network Power has expanded its retrofit solutions for its Actura DC power systems for telcos.
The US firm says the NetSure 701 Retrofit solution enables operators to onboard new technology on existing infrastructure, thus simproving system power reliability, efficiency and onsite as well as remote monitoring and control possibilities, at a fraction of the cost of a new system..
The upgrade, which is readily available for Emerson 48V DC power systems, utilises existing cabinets and distribution cabling. The legacy rectifiers are replaced with more energy efficient NetSure or eSure rectifiers.
Emerson claims these rectifiers take up a quarter of a cabinet compared to legacy rectifiers, allowing space for further capacity, additional distribution or other equipment.
The retrofit program also includes advanced battery management, remote monitoring, including operational and diagnostic reports and statistics, remote service and maintenance and remote software upgrades.
Ulf Dimle, director of product management for Emerson Network Power’s Energy Systems business in EMEA, said: “Thanks to all the cost savings on offer, payback of a retrofit solution can be achieved in well under two years.”
