- Control Cabinets – UL508A
Custom designed control cabinets are designed with the best components selected to accomplish the requirements and can include customer preferences. PLC’s, touchscreens, fuse protection, voltage regulators, genset controllers, protective relays and so on are common devices integrated into UL508A listed control cabinets.
- Automatic and Manual Transfer Switches – UL1008
An automatic transfer switch is an electrical apparatus to automatically select and switch between two power sources and feed a load. They are common devices used throughout the industry and NexGear has a full-line of circuit breaker based transfer switch offerings.
Specialty Products Developed:
- Power Distribution Units (PDU) – 300, 400, 500, 750 & 1,000 kVA versions:
A PDU, or power distribution unit, is a data center focused product that is used to distribute primary power to individual groups of servers. The PDU features a step-down transformer and distribution feeder breakers. It is typical for these PDU’s to feature enhanced power monitoring and communications for data center operators to have detailed information about the power being used by individual feeder breakers.
- Remote Power Panels (RPP’s)
PowerSecure has the ability to provide Remote Power Panels (RPP’s) to fit the needs of the customer. Our capabilities allow flexibility in footprint, panel board integration count and orientation, and integration of branch circuit monitoring (BCM) systems for individual circuit power metering for integration into a DCIM or SCADA system.
- Generator Connection Boards (QuickPower)
QuickPower is a term that PowerSecure coined to describe an electrical apparatus with provisions included to allow very rapid connection or removal of a mobile generator set to a facility. The provisions to allow this include special sheet metal doors to allow temporary cable routing and twist-lock connectors for terminating the power cables. PowerSecure also adds protection schemes to account for electrical safety and proper power phasing to eliminate the possibility of damaging the facility’s electrical system.
- Generator Control Cabinets
Multiple OEM platforms supported for generator set controllers to provide basic genset operations up to complex multi-unit paralleling schemes.
- PLC Programming
Engineering staff routinely working with multiple OEM PLC platforms including GE, Siemens, Modicon, Allen-Bradley, and others.
- Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA)
Systems Flexible and powerful platforms available to integrate large systems and data volumes into simple and user-friendly operator displays and analysis dashboards.
- Touchscreen Programming & Graphics Development
A long history of providing touchscreen displays for small systems up to large and complex systems. Multiple platforms available for deployment.
- Protective Relay Programming & Testing
Protection schemes are conceived, studied, designed and implemented by PowerSecure. Protective relays are an important tool within the systems we build and we have a deep expertise in applying them properly, programming, and testing them.
- Communications Network Design
A cornerstone to most modern large power systems, expertise and know-how for communication system design and implementation is a strong part of the NexGear value proposition.
- Coordination & Arc Flash Studies
Full engineering capabilities and software tools to perform system-level coordination and arc-flash studies are available.
