Line Power

GE's Line Power Systems are engineered to remotely power -48Vdc network equipment using +/- 190Vdc over existing copper lines deployed between central offices and remote outside plant cabinets. Applications include triple-play infrastructure, wireless network distributed antenna systems, and FTTN/FTTH fiber infrastructure.

The Line Power Systems modular architecture provides both upstream and downstream converters. Upstream converter shelves are available for both central office applications and outside plant cabinets. Upstream power converters take -48Vdc input and convert to +/- 190Vdc output power for distribution over twisted pair copper lines with appropriate input current limits and hold-over. Downstream converter shelves are available for 650 Watt and 1300 Watt applications. Downstream power converters take +/- 190Vdc input over twisted pair copper and convert to -48Vdc to power remote network equipment. This provides power distribution with battery back-up maintained at a central location to avoid costs of deploying and maintaining remote battery strings at OSP cabinet or customer premise locations.

Line Power Features and Benefits:

  • Hardened for extreme environments
  • Central Office and OSP cabinet deployment
  • Upstream and downstream modular architecture
  • High density power

Power Express Shelf / Power Express Combiner

Class 2 

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
