Power products developer Staco Energy is adding a 160–250 kVA model to its FirstLine P series of three-phase uninterruptible power supplies.
Staco describes these units as online, double-conversion units with efficiencies of up to 98 percent; they can be run in parallel, up to eight units.
It adds that the “IGBT-based rectifier solid-state technology reduces the impact of the UPS on the local supply and simplifies installation where there is limited power capacity in the form of available electrical supply rating or generator size.”
Furthermore, “Classified as a ‘Zero Impact Source,’ the FirstLine P provides a high input power factor of 0.99, a low input current distortion of less than or equal to 3%, and a power walk-in function that ensures progressive rectifier start-up. It also performs as a high performance filter by protecting upstream power supply sources from any harmonics and reactive power generated by the loads power.”
Staco Marketing Manager Jim Hall explains the origins of the latest model: “It was developed in direct response to customer requests for a higher kVA UPS to our native 480 VAC product family, and it allows us to offer total SMB power solutions.”
For broadcasters, these are suitable for information technology applications such as those found within the broadcast arena’s digitized environment, especially to protect transmitter exciters and HD Radio coders, monitoring, remote control and Emergency Alert Systems, links to remote programming sources via digital telephony, and other applications.
