Eltek adds high-density Smartpack2 controller to Flatpack2 Trilogy DC Power System



Eltek, a leader in high efficiency power systems for telecommunications, industrial applications and renewable energy projects, announced an upgrade to its Flatpack2 Trilogy product line, a compact, high efficiency DC power system that now supports the Smartpack2 controller, boosting system management and power density to up to 600 Amps. The Smartpack2 controller platform features increased memory and more powerful processing for expanded controller features whether onsite (via a 3.2" high contrast, high-resolution color display) or remotely via Internet protocol (IP). The controller supports SNMPv3 for highly secure remote configuration. In addition, the Smartpack2 offers input flexibility through its six CAN-based programmable relay outputs for monitoring DC power system and battery elements and six digital/analog inputs for monitoring door alarms or other inputs. At only 16" deep, the Flatpack2 Trilogy is shallower than standard DC power systems, and is ideal for short-depth racks, cabinets or enclosures in both outside plant and central office applications. By utilizing 3kW rectifiers, the system can provide the full 600A output in less rack space. Eltek's Flatpack2 DC/DC converters are also supported in the Trilogy allowing customers to support both 24V or 48V output. The Smartpack2 controller has a fully distributed architecture with three separate components; the master controller, the system basic controller and the I/O monitor that simplifies connections. The controller also includes system configuration, testing and energy logging capabilities. "The telecom industry is often restricted by tight spaces for its applications, so the high efficiency and compact size of the Trilogy system with its smaller Smartpack2 controller, solves a critical problem," said David Leal, Eltek Vice President of Sales for North America. "Plus, the Trilogy's innovative hybrid design which integrates solar with standard power, makes this a green solution that saves money and helps the environment." Both the Flatpack2 Trilogy and the Smartpack2 support Flatpack2 HE solar converter modules, allowing carriers to build a hybrid solar DC power system to lower costs and decrease environmental impact. The shelves can fit into a 19- or 23-inch rack. With its high-efficiency level of more than 96 percent, the system significantly reduces heat output compared to the industry standard for power efficiency, and reduces the amount of cooling requirement. The system optimizes space by cabling vertically rather than horizontally, with vertical cable landings for breakers that guide cables out the top or sides. The Flatpack2 Trilogy DC power system with Smartpack2 controller is available now from Eltek's worldwide sales force. Eltek
