Dual Bus Front Access Intelligent DC Load Distribution Panel
The ICT240DB-8IRC provides high current 48, 24 and 12 volt DC dual bus DC distribution capability for sites requiring IP-based remote monitoring and power control of connected loads where front access to all connections and functions is required. Each bus is rated at 120 Amps peak and provides four breaker-protected outputs. TCP/IP remote management and power control are standard, allowing remote monitoring of individual loads as well as power-cycling, rebooting, and load shedding of individually selected outputs. The integrated web server provides an intuitive, easy to use browser interface, and SNMP v1/v2c/v3 is supported.
The ICT240DB-8IRC Front Access DC Distribution Panel provides a dual bus, common ground 1RU solution for applications requiring remote monitoring and power control of individual loads. The on-board TCP/IP and web server provide an easy to use, graphical user interface for remote management and power control of system and individual outputs. Each bus supports up to four 30A hydraulic/magnetic breakers for 48, 24, or 12 volts DC.
Dual voltages and polarities can be supported on a single panel, useful for sites requiring -48 and +24 volts DC to be distributed simultaneously. Alarms can be sent to multiple email accounts, and each output has definable load-shed settings. The network watchdog feature will ping a pre-determined I.P. address, such as a router, and power-cycle the device if not answered.
There are four digital inputs for connecting site monitoring sensors such as door, fire, and water alarms, and one dedicated temperature sensor input. These alarms can be given individual names and be sent as email alarm notifications.
The on-board web server means there is no software to maintain, and SNMP is also supported. Firmware can be updated remotely over the Ethernet link. The ICT240DB-8IRC allows each connected load to be monitored, power cycled, or taken off-line. This functionality can be used to conserve power, troubleshoot devices, and reboot connected loads remotely, possibly preventing or delaying the need for an costly site visit.
