Vertiv releases 230V NetSure Inverter Series
Vertiv has introduced the Vertiv NetSure Inverter series, a space-saving system that powers AC and DC loads in a single sub-rack with a common battery bank.
The system provides DC and AC power from a common platform using a single control unit, eliminating the need for separate controllers for the DC power system and the inverter. The 230 VAC system is available in Asia, EMEA and Latin America, and a 120 VAC system will be available in the Americas in early 2022.
Building on Vertiv’s long history and broad portfolio of both AC and DC power solutions, the NetSure Inverter series is a fully integrated system comprised of an AC and DC distribution panel, NetSure Control Unit, and eSure rectifiers and inverters.
Working in concert, the system provides zero transfer time between AC mains and DC battery sources, delivering extremely reliable backup for critical loads. The NetSure inverter module has the industry’s best power density in its class at 23W per cubic inch (1.4W/cm³) and leverages that in a compact footprint to deliver peak efficiency of up to 96.3%.
The module is hardened for the high-temperature environments up to 80°C where it will be deployed routinely, specifically those in the telecommunications access space and at the edge of the network.
“As 5G adoption expands and more computing is introduced into traditional DC-powered environments, including access sites and edge deployments, the need to reliably and efficiently manage both AC and DC loads increases,” Vertiv director of global DC power offerings Henrik Nilén says.
“For the growing number of edge sites, availability is key and space is precious. With a single battery bank supporting both AC and DC loads and market-leading inverter module power density, the Vertiv NetSure Inverter system will optimise space and enable outstanding site availability.”
With a single control system, the NetSure Inverter series requires no additional training for network operators and no investment in additional controls, while eliminating equipment and reducing maintenance costs. By providing clear visibility into both AC and DC loads, it enables more accurate capacity planning and management, and maximum availability.
For existing DC power sites, a NetSure Inverter system add-on cassette is available, with complete front access, including three inverter modules, AC distribution and a control unit – all in a 1U high, 19” wide sub-rack.
