Power Express Shelf / Power Express Combiner
The Power Express Class 2 Distribution is a 1u shelf that provides 32 100VA limited circuits for safe powering of remote loads. NEC Class 2 rating allows for power cabling to be deployed in a data cable raceway instead of conduit which in turn reduce a good deal of labor and increases the speed to full deployment. Each shelf is built to support an alarm card for stand-alone deployment and can be linked to the RD-485 data bus through the RJ-45 connection on the rear of the shelf. This uplink allows each shelf to interface a GE Pulsar Plus controller which allows local access, alarming and control of each circuit in every shelf as well as remote interface over the controller LAN connection.
Power Express Remote Combiner
General Electric's Critical Power has developed the Power Express Combiner to provide safe and effective remote powering for loads that exceed 100VA capabilities of a single Class 2 circuit. The Power Express Combiner provides an interface for up to 8 Class 2 power circuits fed from the upstream location and provides safe, and NEC compliant, aggregation to deliver a bulk -48V power source for remote devices. The Power Express Combiner gives customerse the confidence that Class 2 deployments powering larger loads will meet NEC requirements because they are not connecting power circuits in parallel without galvanic isolation.
Power Express Features and Benefits:
- Fast and Easy circuit terminations speed deployment
- Individual circuit on/off/reset
- Replace modules without re-wiring the shelf
- Simple push button operation
- Guaranteed Class 2 delivery with internal fusing (higher rated fuses cannot be installed thereby violating the class 2 performance)
- Uplink to master controller for remote access over LAN
