Orange, CA. – January 29, 2015 – IntelliPower, Inc., a world class leader in the design and development of rugged power systems for extreme indoor and outdoor environments, is pleased to introduce its latest turn-key, integrated power system built for large industrial operations such as offshore drilling rigs where operational factors include harsh environments, portability, downtime reduction, and long runtimes.
Built with modular subsystems which include a power converter, battery charger and battery array, this solution is all contained within one rugged, self-cooling, portable cabinet with lifting eyes. The system as a whole is portable from facility to facility via crane operation. Each individual subsystem can be easily ‘swapped’ out by personnel in the event of system failure; enabling operators to save on field service costs and downtime often associated with other designs.
Reliable performance is expected under harsh offshore conditions that have temperatures ranging from minus 25 to plus 55 degrees Celsius; minus 13 to plus 131 degrees in Fahrenheit. Dust, vibration and shock are controlled through filters, lock-tight hardware, subcomponent spacing, and rugged steel enclosures respectively. System and subsystem design conforms to IntelliPower’s building block methodology, supporting environment and power hazard protection design strategies drawing from over 26 years of success in the field.
Features include 2500 watts of isolated power provided to loads at 120 Volts, 60 Hz through five 500 watt separate screw terminal ports. Backup run time is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes at full power. Accepted inputs are from 120 to 240 Volts AC with an input tolerance of minus 20% to plus 15%. Input power is corrected to a factor near unity, 0.99. Upon overloads at a given threshold, loads are transferred to line power via an isolated bypass circuit. Local panel human-machine interface (HMI) is available via a digital LCD display. Subsystem local panel alarm and state viewing can be checked from a viewing window on the front panel of the cabinet. One discrete signal on a screw terminal reports bypass and AC power status. Additional remote monitoring and control is available via RS-232 protocol and system management applications.
