ABB data center solution for Chinese postal company

2014-07-24 - Hot pluggable solutions were key benefits for Beijing Post Company

With its 51,000 branches, the China Post Group is not your typical postal operation as it offers many additional services besides mail delivery. From online greeting card services to booking your flight or hotel reservations to financial bank services, its communication infrastructure is critical to serving one of the most populous countries in the world.

Saving space and lowering costs
To meet the increasing public service needs, the China Post Group decided to invest in a modern data center. ABB was able to provide a complete solution for the core data center of the national postal information system in Beijing. A key decision factor was ABB’s switchboard with low voltage components that would save space in cabinets and lower costs.

Offering complete solution
Specifically, ABB supplied power distribution cabinets, Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) cabinets, and power counters. One requirement was that the protection Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB) should be hot pluggable and adjustable for phases.

"We were able to offer the whole solution with outstanding technology and convenience service," says Cheney-ZhaoZhen Chen, ABB's Product Group Marketing Manager for Enclosures & DIN Rail products in China. "Especially, the solution of SMISSLINE busbar and adaptor with S200 MCB met China Post’s requirement of hot plugability and also saves costs for the power counters."

In addition, the auxillary contactors installed at the bottom of the MCBs for status detection helps save a significant amount of space in the cabinets. Besides S200 MCB and SMISSLINE, ABB also provided all other low voltage components such as Tmax breakers, OVR surge protection devices, the monitoring system (EM-PDU) with a touch screen, which displays all electric parameters and controls of the power cabinet.
