Eaton unveils new DC power portfolio to meet 5G power demands

 

Date: 2019/10/10

SYDNEY, Australia. Power management company Eaton today announced a global revamp of its DC power portfolio at Data Centre World 2019, with new intelligent power capabilities across the range to meet the needs of 5G networks.

John Atherton, General Manager for Power Quality at Eaton said the global roll-out of 5G will continue to increase power demand on customers sites, with significant upgrades required to traditional power supplies to ensure a smooth transition in this new era of digital connectivity.

“With the number of global 5G connections estimated to exceed 100 billion by 2025, data centres and telecom central offices will be a critical backbone for these networks. Eaton has invested globally in its DC range to ensure telecom and data operators are able to manage the exponential growth in power consumption,” said John.

“Our new DC range focuses on providing intelligent energy storage, intelligent control and high-power density to ensure data and telecom facilities have options for world leading efficiency and low-cost deployment now and into the future.”

A leading product in the DC range is the Eaton EC500 System Controller, an advanced control and monitoring solution for Eaton power systems. It is one of the first DC products for 5G cellular deployments with integrated lithium-ion (li-ion) battery support for direct BMS communication.

“Lithium batteries are an ideal solution to reduce mains modernisation through intelligent peak clipping, and to achieve real time monitoring. Eaton’s DC portfolio offers lithium ion battery integration, giving customers full control and monitoring for demanding applications such as 5G, IoT and Edge.”

The DC range also includes the HPR48-ES Energy Saver Rectifier, designed to support communication network operators in achieving energy reductions across networks to meet aggressive carbon footprint reduction targets. The medium-sized high efficiency rectifier offers high-density energy storage and flexible mounting options.

“We look forward to working with our customers and partners to support the evolution from traditional power to intelligent DC power systems with advanced power and electronics technologies. The refreshed DC range will deliver greater energy efficiency, intelligent energy storage and intelligent clipping – essential features required to operate 5G networks.”

The new portfolio is available now in ANZ. To learn more about Eaton’s DC product range, visit http://electricalsector.eaton.com/LP=10103
