Emerson Network Power has unveiled the Liebert LTS, an automatic “plug and play” power transfer device. Ideal for computer equipment rooms, internet data centers, telecom and financial data centers, the Liebert LTS provides fast transfers between two independent, synchronous AC power sources. This ensures continued provision of AC power to critical equipment, despite irregularities in either of the two AC input power sources.
“For businesses that demand high-nines availability, seamless transfer between power sources is critical to keeping operations running,” said Arunangshu Chattopadhyay, director for product marketing and head of Central Technical Support, Emerson Network Power in Asia. “Deploying transfer switches provide increased fault isolation and increased protection during service times, ensuring constant power as needed by many of our customers today.”
The transfer is accomplished typically within six milliseconds and is “invisible” to sensitive electronic equipment. Downtime is eliminated during the transfer, as the device automatically regulates transfer from the failing power source, to the functional one.
The device is designed for reliability, with “break-before-make” switching that prevents the independent power sources from connecting, even under faulted conditions. Intelligent diagnostics and transfer tests detect potential switch failures before a problem becomes critical, and a manual transfer option allows the operator to switch power sources at their own convenience, for scheduled source shutdowns or maintenance. The Liebert LTS series is easily installed by plugging it in to a power source, as it comes with standard IEC input and output connections.
The Liebert LTS comes in 10 amp (10A) and 16 amp (16A) configuration and is available now throughout Asia, as well as in Australia and New Zealand.
