Cyberex® Unveils New Superswitch3 Digital Static Transfer Switch
RICHMOND, VA - Danaher Power Solutions, manufacturer of Cyberex® products, today introduced a further development of the digital static transfer switch, the SuperSwitch3. The Cyberex® SuperSwitch3 is the latest in a string of technological advances offering greater reliability, improved access, smaller footprint and easier system navigation.
"The SuperSwitch3 represents another leap forward in our efforts to provide breakthrough technology to the power industry," said Nev Carmichael, director of marketing. "Cyberex® has always been the market leader in digital static transfer switch technology, and we believe that this product follows in that rich tradition of delivering the very best power solutions to our customers."
Among the advanced features offered by the SuperSwitch3 are:
o Increased reliability. The SuperSwitch3 increases the Mean Time Between Downing Events (MTBDE) by three times to 10 million hours, which is up to seven times longer than other products.
o Reduced maintenance time. The SuperSwitch3 has a simplified, modular design that allows for quicker replacements of parts, reducing open-door time to less than 15 minutes for most repairs.
o Expanded diagnostics. The SuperSwitch3 can record 100 different event types and store a total of 2,500 registered events, providing a wealth of information for root cause analysis. Data can be viewed locally or exported by e-mail.
o Smaller size. The SuperSwitch3's footprint is 30 percent smaller than other comparably rated models.
o Enhanced graphical user interface. The SuperSwitch3 mimic panel and control panel are independent for further operational reliability. Users can easily navigate through a broad range of control settings and system information.
o Guided breaker bypass operation. Automated process and user prompts guide operators through system bypass sequences, significantly reducing human error.
o Enhanced communications. RS232, Modbus, (TCP/IP & Serial) and Web access are available.
The SuperSwitch3 uses patented Cyberex® technology to monitor incoming power and perform seamless transfers (under 4 milliseconds) between two AC power sources.
"Companies today, more than ever before, demand six "9s" of power reliability within their mission critical architecture," said Kevin Macomber, product marketing manager. "Lost power is lost revenue - given today's business world's dependency on computing power for transaction processing, storage and control of manufacturing processes. The SuperSwitch3 is a major step forward in ensuring reliable power continuity that is so critical to our economy."
Cyberex® has a long history of leadership and innovation in the power industry. In 1971, it introduced the first stand-alone static transfer switch, and offered breakthrough technology again in 1994 when it launched the first digital static transfer switch. In excess of 6,000 Cyberex® transfer switches have been installed in companies worldwide, particularly those with critical data and communications applications. Many of Danaher Power Solution's customers include financial institutions on Wall Street and other Fortune 500 companies where an uninterrupted power supply is paramount.
