ABB release the PCS100 AVC-40 Active Voltage Conditioner for sag correction

2015-05-14 - Leading the industry in innovation and technology, ABB has released the PCS100 AVC-40 Active Voltage Conditioner designed for sag correction in large commercial and industrial applications. Providing fast, accurate voltage sag and surge correction as well as continuous voltage regulation, the PCS100 AVC-40 has been optimally designed to provide equipment immunity from power quality events on the supply network.

The PCS100 AVC-40 is able to provide continuous protection from the most common utility voltage problems found in modern power networks. Even the most modern power networks are not perfect and voltage sags are the most common cause of equipment malfunction in today’s automated industry. The PCS100 AVC-40, built on a proven and dependable converter platform, provides instant voltage sag and surge correction, ensuring maximum productivity.

The PCS100 AVC-40s fail-safe worry free operation even in harsh electrical environments means it is specifically designed for large commercial and industrial applications. It’s industrial design and rugged overload capability means it can handle conditions that other voltage conditioner’s cannot. Furthermore, it contains a redundant internal bypass system that ensures that the load continues to be supplied from the utility. The PCS100 AVC-40 has a faster return on investment due to low operation costs thanks to its leading efficiency exceeding 98 percent and minimal heat rejection ensures minimal costs for electricity and cooling.

The PCS100 AVC-40 requires no batteries, as it draws the additional energy required to make up the correction voltage from the utility supply. With no ongoing maintenance costs typically associated with batteries the cost of ownership for a PCS100 AVC-40 systems is very low. As the system has a small footprint, it can be easily fitted into equipment rooms or confined spaces, eliminating the need to design and build added floor space.

The PCS100 AVC-40 feature a large LCD touch screen, through which the device can be operated and detailed event logs accessed. An integrated Web server allows remote access and emails can be sent to those concerned when a power quality event occurs, allowing information that can be easily accessed, anytime, anywhere.
