The AC SMARTStart® portfolio offers intelligent switched and sequenced Power Distribution Units (PDUs). It also provides for local and remote control (Telnet, SNMP, or Web) to outlet groups. These units monitor input line voltage, total load current, and line frequency. Each PDU has circuit protection and power-on current limits. Optional features include alarm sensors; security sensors; limit switches; and remote emergency power off (EPO).
The AC SMARTStart® is an AC power distribution unit (PDU) designed to control eight or sixteen AC loads and monitor vital parameters. This product line comes in a variety of configurations, including total load capacity ranging from 16 to 30 Amps. In addition, we offer output configurations that use screw clamp terminal blocks, in lieu of IEC or NEMA connectors, for industrial applications.
All models have the ability to power-on or power-off any or all loads in any sequence over a wide range of time intervals. The PDU automatically sequences each output. This significantly reduces the total in-rush current and limits the possibility of equipment damage due to the combined turn-on transient of several loads. The sequence order and delay is user defined at setup. A circuit breaker at the AC input provides overall protection. To prevent the circuit breaker from tripping during power up, the PDU features a power-on current limit. The AC SMARTStart® AC Switched PDU is also capable of monitoring input line voltage and total load current, as well as line frequency.
Operation/control is accomplished either manually, using controls on the front panel of the unit, or remotely, using a computing device that utilizes EIA RS-232 and RS-485/422 communications such as a laptop computer, desktop computer, or other personal electronic device.Two user programmable external contacts can be configured to alert the user of under-voltage, over-current, or over-temperature conditions using the dry contact closure. These contacts allow remote operation and control from Web browser or Telnet interface.
