Distribution Series 3 Dual Bus 160A
Dual DC Distribution Panel 12V 24V 48V with Remote TCP/IP Monitoring
The Distribution Series 3 Dual Bus DC Distribution Panels are designed to be used in 12V, 24V or 48VDC applications. All models feature either 12 fuse- or breaker-protected outputs (model dependent) with ATO FKS 80 volt rated fuses, or hydraulic/magnetic breakers (breakers sold separately). Dual voltages and polarities can be run simultaneously.
Breakers or Fuses Alternatives for Protection of your Critical Equipment
Each independent bus has six outputs rated at up to 30 amps max (at 12/24VDC), or 20 amps max (at 48VDC). Fused models feature LED indicators on the front panel, enabling easy identification and replacement of blown fuses. An integrated security-protected Ethernet communications port (select models) allows the panel to be monitored from a remote site using an industry-standard web browser. HTTPS and SNMP V1/V2c/V3 protocols are supported. System current, system voltage, individual output currents and breaker status can be monitored, and alarms can be sent to multiple email accounts.
DC outputs can be turned on and off remotely (select models), allowing connected loads to be power-cycled using the Ethernet connection. Automatic load-shedding can be defined to protect critical loads. A network watchdog feature will ping up to two IP addresses and power-cycle loads such as routers which may need rebooting to restore communications with the site. The 1RU design saves valuable rack space, and fits all standard 19 inch racks. Each bus has its own independent Form C alarm contacts.
Low Cost of Ownership and Site Maintenance
All models come with a 2 year warranty. Intelligent models are I.P. enabled for remote monitoring and remote shutdown or power cycling of individual outputs, potentially saving unnecessary service call-outs.
Intelligent models also come with five digital input contacts for site monitoring sensors such as door, smoke, and water detection. Each input can be custom labeled to provide descriptive email alerts. All Distribution Series 3 models feature independent Form C outputs to monitor and report alarm conditions for each bus.
