Intelligent power distribution systems

24 March 2015

E-T-A Circuit Breakers, a manufacturer of electro- mechanical and electronic products for circuit protection, has introduced the ControlPlex family of intelligent power distribution systems. 

An integral communication interface provides intelligent networking, control and remote serviceability via Ethernet or fieldbus systems, offering benefits to the end-user in terms of control as well as reduced installation costs.

The new technology includes the E-T-A ControlPlex Board, an intelligent 24V DC power distribution system which is said to be suited for factory automation systems where availability of the production process is of the essence. Also available now is the ControlPlex Rack which has been designed for the telecommunications industry, where maximised system availability is also vital.
For example, the ControlPlex Board can provide selective overcurrent protection with integral current limitation and complete power distribution of load circuits, while offering failure indication and remote actuation/resetting of load circuits via a single Ethernet or field bus cable. This cable can provide diagnostics and remote serviceability of the entire control and field level, as well as energy management.
