New DC System Provides the Highest Power Density Solution in the Industry
MONTREAL (Sept. 29, 2002) - Building on the scalable architecture of its Candeo (TM) DC power systems, Emerson Energy Systems announces the introduction of the Candeo XL, a new generation power system for central office telecommunications applications. With up to 1,600A of rectifiers and sixteen (16) 600A fuse positions for power distribution in a single 24-inch by 24-inch cabinet, Candeo XL provides the highest system power density solution using 200A switch mode rectifiers in the industry. The system is certified to NEBS Level 3, UL, CSA and VDE requirements, bears the CE mark and is compliant to class B electromagnetic compatibility standards. At its heart is a new modular 93 percent efficient, power factor corrected, hot plug-in 200A rectifier. "The Candeo philosophy is based on simplicity, scalability and smart design. The Candeo XL provides network applications with a solution that is simpler, easier to operate, quicker to deploy, yet offers the lowest lifecycle cost," said Jacques Poulin, Vice President Global Product Management. The Candeo platform is based on modular blocks consisting of rectifiers, system manager, and DC distribution modules, making installation and maintenance simple, easy, and cost-effective. The Candeo XL uses the same modular approach for large power requirements. Key features of Emerson Energy System's Candeo XL include: o Highest Efficiency in the Industry: The Candeo XL provides 30 percent less heat dissipation than traditional rectifiers. o Highest Density: The Candeo XL features 30 to 50 percent less footprint than competitive offerings. o Adaptability: The Candeo XL is well suited for medium to large single or multiple cabinet solutions from 400A to 8000A, and extra large central office configurations up to 12,000A. o Simple Installation and Expansion: The Candeo XL is easy to install and expand with its modular rectifiers, modular distribution modules, and simple inter-cabinet link. The unique system architecture provides simple cost-effective scalable growth from a single cabinet to the largest multi-cabinet solutions without having to make provisions for the ultimate growth at the time of the initial installation. o Flexibility: The Candeo XL cabinet can be configured with three or four distribution modules (12 or 16 fuses per cabinet) and up to eight 200A rectifiers. Post installation service and maintenance is available through Emerson Network Power Global Service's Total DC Power Service Solutions (TM) maintenance program. Emerson Network Power Global Services provides factory certified, single point of contact for service of all DC power protection equipment, irrespective of manufacturer. From initial quality audits to ongoing reliability assurance and preventative maintenance, problems may be corrected before they occur, maximizing customer uptime and performance.
